I purchased this printer in o4 and i have used it every time I am iout printing on site, It will print a 4x6 in 20 seconds. I have not had a problem with it.

Pros: reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, durable, Sharp Tones & Colors, fast print speed, easy to use
I've had this printer since 2004 and it's been very reliable, prints quality photo prints, and keeps on working. It is bar none the best printer I've owned.

Pros: Easy Setup, easy to use
Cons: Slow Print Speed, High Ink Consumption, unreliable, lousy color printing
The color printing is tinged with pink and red. Dark Green comes out pink. This is the worst color printer I've used. I'm completely disappointed in my attempts to print color photos. They don't look anything like they do on the screen. Most of the photos I've attempted to print have ended up in the trash. The colors are all wrong. Don't buy this printer if you want to print photos. So don't buy this printer. It also has lousy ink consumption. This printer is very expensive to operate.

My husband (the tech guru that he is) bought me this printer for my birthday about 4 years ago. I really don't think there's a better home printer out there. We print a LOT of photos, and the images are always crisp, clear and professional. The photos are dry immediately, so there's no smudging. I also like that the inks are separate (so you change only the one that's out), and that there are additional red and green inks that make the colors super vivid. I also print a lot of invitations at home, and the lettering is every bit as crisp as the pictures are. I've only called tech support once (my fault, not the printer), and the guy was as nice as could be, very easy to understand and helped me solve my issue right away. I'm not sure what the printer cost is these days, but it's worth it! We couldn't be happier!

Pros: Easy Setup, easy to use, fast print speed, reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors
This product is an absolutely spectacular printer that prints full 8.5 x 11 photos with stunning color and detail. The inks are inexpensive and last a fair amount of time and the machine is very durable. I have had mine for over three years without any issue while printing about 150-200 photos per year. Light usage but it is a great photo printer. It prints exceptionally fast by printing in both directions, I would recommend using the Canon Photo Pro paper as my best results have come on their paper.
