Summary: It's a good printer, really it is! I only wish it got along better with my laptop computer and that I could use it in our home network. When it works, it's great. When it doesn't, it's a pain.
Pros: It is a dependable product that delivers high quality copies
Cons: This printer doesn't like to work with my laptop or network. Can't use USB port at all.
Summary: I really like this printer. It has high quality output - 1200x1200 DPI and prints very quickly. It uses a liquid based ink (some inkjets have a powder based ink) so drying times for prints are a little longer - you can smudge a print for the first few minutes.
Pros: Quick, quiet, high quality prints
Cons: Ink dries a little slowly, so you have to be careful with prints at first

Pros: High, laser quality Photo output on glossy paper
