  • Summary: I bought it about ten years ago when it was relatively state-of-the art. It has served me and my family well. However, with changes in technology, I bet a color laser printer would make better sense for us.

  • Summary: Yes, it has excellent quality photos - worth the slow printing to get - not really all that slow. BUT . . . I have had to re-install the software several times in the year or so that I have owned it - fickle.

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer as it was on offer with my PC at the Bargain Price of £150 (RRP £349) including a ream of paper & 20 sheets of 1 A4 photo paper. When you use the printer, the first screen you will see is the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  • Pros: Excellent Build Quality, Great Colour Definition
  • Cons: Large Footprint, costly Ink cartridges, only a 4x6 size option
