Summary: FWIW: I use HP Laser Photo Paper 4x6 for printing photos. It prints just fine on Laser Glossy. i need to figure out if there is a way around the border around printed photos. But otherwise, I consider this printer a good investment.

Summary: Excellent print quality. Even the color prints are acceptable, although not as subtle as what you expect from a good inkjet printer. But... The tiny screen, unreadable without the help of a flashlight, is not helpful, especially since the available buttons to go down through the various setup options are confusing, at best. The 9-page manual in 8(!) languages is almost worthless. The printer is WiFi capable but setting that up was problematic.
Summary: Presently use it for basic printing needs, it will also work reasonably as a photo printer having tried it. I was expecting to go through toner a little faster, especially the initial cartridges with doing full color photo printing. Ordered an extra cartridge set at the time I bought the printer to be on the safe side. When the time comes the cartridges are really to change out with the tray that you place them in.
Summary: Color is superior to all other printer brands I have seen or used. But the printer is hign maintainence and they tell you it is nearly out of ink when it is only about half gone. (I don't use color that often. Replaced the black cartridge, and have been printing color items once or twice a week for about a year now since it first said that I should put in new color cartridges.
Summary: If I could, I would give this a 4 1/2. The only thing lacking is an automatic double-sided printing function. The price is reasonable for a color laser and there are many places on the net where you can get good-quality re-manufactured toner cartridges for 1/2 the price of new.
