Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, durable, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use, duplex scanning/printing
I purchased this printer about 2 months ago and I'm amazed at the quality and features it offers for the price. The output is quick and high quality. I particularly enjoy the combined duplex scanning/printing capabilities.
As a professional writer, I'm not terribly concerned with photo printing, but it does an excellent job on photos and graphics for my needs.
I highly recommend this printer.

Printer spools over and over again, if there is any type of problem (which so far is 90%) the only solution is to ask you to power down the printer. At which point it needs to go through the 45 seconds of whizzes and bangs to power back on- only to give you the same result. 3 power ups later your doc is gone (not waiting in tray) and printer is acting like it didnt just get amnesia. I have never seen such a thing! To add, there is no ACTIVE feeder tray - meaning - it has a PHOTO tray in the rear - which it turns out is only active when trying to print a photo - but the great part is that the printer decides which tray to pull from - NOT YOU. The undercarriage tray does NOT hold 4x6. Which means I can't print envelopes, note cards, custom anything...Also when you AIRPRINT a photo it does not feed from the photo tray. So what does one do when they bought the printer for AIRPRINT photo functionality? Throw it out? I decided to leave it next to my pc but that wont even last, I print next to nothing, have had this printer less than a month and have wanted to open the door and throw it in the street on at least 3 occasions. Its worth $100 to watch this printer smashed to pieces. I dont get how all the printers on here have good reviews....chances are my review will never see the light of day.
