Just Say "No"
Began experiencing the widely reported "grinding" noise and now printer is nonfunctional. This is not a durable product.

Settings + Patience = Awesome on a Budget
Honestly, this purchase was intended to be the average quality every-day printer. From day one it fit the bill as a replacement for the odd report, list, or what-ever. In a pinch, I tried printing out a quick photo and thought, "Meh. I've seen worse but this is only worthy of the fridge!" Fiddling with the various settings in both printing and scanning, though, I've come to be pretty darned impressed with this thing. In fact, with the help of some specialty papers and a little patience, I have to admit to some absolutely stunning results. Who would have thought?!

Good Output, Eventually...
This printer looked great on paper and the sample printouts looked good as well. However, once installed, I have been very unimpressed with it. The time from power on -- either from an off or sleeping state -- to printed output takes forever as the printer goes through some kind of a warm-up / priming / calibration process. Printing a single page can sometimes take minutes if the printer wasn't used recently. The printer has 5 ink cartridges that last a very short period of time and the printer won't print if one is empty (even if you are printing in black and white). I rarely print in color, yet feel like I am constantly replacing cartridges; I confess I wonder if these have some kind of internal expiration date. The bundled software for scanning is terrible.
