5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality Fax and Laser Printer
I purchased this item because I needed a good fax machine and got a great bonus with it being a laser black & white printer also!Inkjet fax machines cost a fortune in replacement cartridges and the Canon has a very good laser replacement cartridge at a good price as it gets 2,700 to 3,000 prints per cartridge.The quality is beautiful since it is a laser.Set up was very simple and the prints from my computer are professional.I also utilized the distinctive ring features so I know a fax is coming in versus a regular phone call and don't pick it up. I highly recommend purchasing it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor Phone
The phone on this unit was an after thought. No caller ID and no handsfree calling. Also the first time you dial, you'll thinkg the unit is broken as it oddly switches the tone from the handset to the unit's speaker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer
My fax and printer went out on the same day (what a week!) and I replaced my plain paper HP fax and my HP 1100 printer with this Canon L80.

I use it for everything! No problems, easy setup, clear faxes. After 2 months of constant use as both a fax and a printer, I have no problems with this unit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little machine
I've owned the Canon L80 for about a month now.I find it to be a great laser fax machine, and it also doubles as a fine copier for small jobs when collating and a flatbed copier are not needed.For my small office needs,this Canon works perfectly for me. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable price.
With amazon.com price of $20.05 for this printpack, cost per print is just unbeatable, whether from a lab or from competition such as HP.Print quality from Picturemate deluxe is nothing less than amazing, Epson has a winner in this printer and printpack.

5-0 out of 5 stars picturebug
I love my epson picturemate.It prints great pictures.I prefer glossy prints so that is a plus for me.I have a Canon A60 digital and it is so easy to download the pictures on my computer and then I can edit them (with any software) and then just print them out.I have been working on a scrapbook and it is so convenient to be able to just take a picture and then print it right away.The only drawback is that it is rather slow.If you have taken a lot of pics it can be quite time consuming to print them all at one time.I try to download them into different folders by date/event or whatever and then just print a few at a time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top Tier Product Once You Get the Hang
I Agree with "Great Prints", PictureMate produces top quality prints at about half the price of its competitors. Look at the price of the refill packs for the competition and pay attention to the number of prints per box, you will find that they cost between 50 and 60 cents per prints. That is where your true cost, and true savings accrue. PictureMate is 29 cents per print. The quality, as always from Epson is Outstanding. One thing that I noticed is that the default setting causes a photo to print in 8 to 9 minutes. If you go into the Print Settings and uncheck the "Enhance Fine Details" Checkbox, the PictureMate will produce a fantastic, beautiful, and durable print in about 2 to 3 minutes, which is acceptable.

In response to another reviewer about selecting prints, I agree that it is not easy to select prints when printing from card, I either remember the number or you can use most cameras to mark images for printing in camera. I too print from computer and this is definitely the way to go.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Lab Quality Prints At Home
I am a semi-pro photographer and was looking for an easy way to get proof images and I found it with the Epson Picturemate. The prints cost roughly the same as from my local lab, about 29 cents each, and the quality is sharper and better. You can connect it directly to your computer or print straight from a variety of media cards. The only down side is there is no way to monitor and pick which image you want off the card without first printing a contact sheet.
Since I print from my computer this is really not a problem. The printer is small and portable. Epson claims the prints will last 100 years or more. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product but installation may make you annoyed
I'm an extremely experienced computer user and I had issues with installation, even by following the instructions. Eventually, I ended up resolving my own problems after about five hours of time. Specifically: The "step by step" instructions were fine, until the next step "click next" didn't apply anymore. The installer was freezing, and if I allowed Blue Screens, was clearly crashing. I have a number of USB devices and spent hours trying different configurations, none of which helped. I downloaded the updates online and installed those, which continued to be problematic with not much offered in support in help, documentation, or by phone (banker hours, long distance support) and I dreaded trying to get this done by e-mail. Through sheer persistence I resolved whatever my conflict was, which was clearly as USB conflict, but the consumer should expect the same. It's no joy of life to debug this, I'd dread what your Aunt Lila would go through trying to sort this if she received this as a birthday gift.

That said, the product is fantastic once it gets going. I am more than pleased with the copying ability, and for my purposes the photo quality is more than acceptable.

Users which claim Epson printers have a low life expectancy are correct, but I usually plan on replacing them every two years anyway. It's par for the course. At the market price for this all in one, if you get a year out of it you've done well. Make sure you use it atleast once a week to keep the jet tubes cleared and you'll be better off.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great overall value
I purchased this printer to replace an HP Laserjet Multifunction unit.Overall I am very satisfied with this model.I was initially looking for a simply a new inkjet printer, but purchased this due to the low cost.Consider this model when comparison shopping.

PROS:
- Fast print speeds, excellent print and scan quality
- Flatbed scanning and copying; scanner cover can be removed to accommodate a book or larger item to scan or copy
- Photo-quality borderless prints - looks like a postcard
- Unlike HP, Epson has separate ink tanks for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, so only replace when needed
- Card reader allows printing from card, AND can transfer images to your computer using USB 2.0 (elimilates need to waste camera battery)
- Can copy or print from memory card without a PC
- 150 sheet input tray

CONS:
- A bit noisy when feeding in paper, but this is typical of any inkjet
- When one cartridge is out of ink, you cannot print without replacing it

2-0 out of 5 stars Clogged printer heads can't be cleaned, Dont purchase
Loved my Epson All-In-One printer until it just went over its year waranty.Then the printer would not print even though the ink cartridges were 70% full of ink. The Epson troubleshooting guide said to replace cartridge with new ones when cleaning the printer heads mutiple times didn't work. I wasted money buying 4 Epson replacement cartridges and still not getting the printer to print.Gave 2 ** since the scanner still works.Fortunately I have a backup HP printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great All in One Device
Great Speed, quality color and b/w prints at low cartridge cost. You can print, copy and csan documents/pictures, and even Fax with any software fax utility like MS Word Fax.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away from Epson, especially the CX line!
About a year and a half ago I purchased my CX5200 to replace a nine year old Epson Stylus printer. I don't print that often and was getting down to the end of my second set of replacement cartridges when the ink on the paper started to smear. I tried a few head cleanings, but the problem persisted. Next I replaced the black cartridge and, SURPRISE, no more black. I then replaced magenta...no more magenta. I did some research and found that all the Epson printers get clogged jets after a period of time. I bought the Epson cleaning solution and tried that. Now pretty much nothing works. I can't wait for all these five star reviewers to come back in a year. I will never buy another Epson printer again since this problem seems to be huge with their printers.

My advice to anyone, stay away from any Epson product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Bargain
For 80 bucks this printer is perfect. I've had no problems of professional level usasge.Fast enough for my law office.Print is crisp.And if it breaks -- so what?It's 80 bucks, I'll buy another one.thumb's up!

1-0 out of 5 stars Flawed product
I Have worked with two of these printers, one at work and a second i later purchased for the home.Both printers after about a year required the purchase of a new drum assembly, which costs as much as the printer.The drum becomes defective, it streaks the output.Customer service was no help, and refused to acknowledge that this is a common problem.I have read on other boards people having thesame experience.I still use mine, but not for anything that needs to look good.

1-0 out of 5 stars Maybe they forgot to refurbish this one?
Perhaps I got a bad printer, but there's nothing worse than getting a heavy defective product that you just have to bother packaging back up and spending money to return.

The printer LOOKED like new condition, but printed with a horrible grinding and groaning noise.The pages don't come fully out of the printer, so it takes the next page to push the last one out, and the subsequent page order is messed up.If I print multiple pages, I just get a big mess of papers in the bin.

I'm tech savvy and very knowledgable about printers, so it's not like I left the plastic yellow "REMOVE" tag on the toner unit or anything like that.There's just something severely wrong with the unit I received that anybody printing a test page should have noticed.

The included installation disk had nice fancy graphics but froze on my XP computer whenever I attempted to install the actual driver.I eventually had to get to Brothers website to get the driver downloaded.

My final complaint is that removing the drum/toner units, and even the drawer can be quite messy.There's a neon green lubricant splashed in every possible crevice.

Needless to say, this one's going back.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's been 1 year, and I still love this printer!
Purchased mine here last March, and have had no problems with it.Plus, it's 1/2 as expensive today, as when I paid $163.75 for it, just a year ago.Very fast, easy, and uneventful installation.I would buy this model again, without question.

Granted, I don't use mine every day. But sometimes I do print quite a bit at one time, and it's never jammed and I haven't had to replace the toner yet.

If you want a laser printer for light-moderate use... and are on a budget, I'd recommend this one.For the price, you can't go wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent value !!!
This is not the fastest laser printer on the market but there are many more expensive printers that fail to out-perform this one. This printer has performed flawlessly for the last year and a half. I will continue to recommend this printer to anyone who is looking for a laser printer on a budget. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome paper
The Canon glossy paper is great! I've printed out over 600 4x6 pictures on my Canon i960 printer and the pictures are much better than taking them to any photo lab. I have used nothing but the Canon glossy photo paper and certainly have been quite pleased with the paper not to mention flawless printing on the i960. I certainly recommend the paper and the printer and the price on amazom for the paper is better then any store I've been to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best paper for your Canon Printer!
Do not pass up this photo paper. If you own a canon printer. this is the best paper for it. The quality of the paper is better than most professional paper such as kodak or fuji.

What really makes the difference in your printed photos is the quality of the paper. I own the Canon IP4000 printer and the photos are better than getting them developed at the lab. This paper is quite thick whcih makes the photos you print very professional. Combine editing software like Microsoft PictureIt! and you have a winning combination!

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost like the Photo Paper Pro
I have used both this photo paper and the photo paper pro, and i really cant tell a difference. I am using a canon mp730 (great multifunction printer if you are in the market btw) and the colors come out crisp and vibrant. The only thing you might notice between this and the really high end stuff is the texture of the print. It seems that this paper is ever-so slightly rougher than the really good stuff. If you are just making regular prints to share with family, I would get this stuff...if you are using it for professional shots or something that you would like to keep for a long time, i would get the higher end stuff.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant color
I did a few test prints with this paper on my Canon i960 phoyo printer with some pics of the kids and they looked great. Then I printed a close-up of a stunning mum flower that I shot on slide film and had scanned onto CD. I could not believe the brilliant color, saturation and detail in the print!!! It's mind-blowing. I might take the slide to a local printer to see what kind of print they do by comparison, but I give some major kudos for both the printer and this paper. Wowee. I am going to blow through a lot of paper this way!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Stellar Photos
This paper is absolutely amazing with my Canon printer!I was surprised to find that the color was accurate, the prints very clear, and the paper was dry once it came out of my printer.I even "test smudged" the paper and there was not one run, smudge, or ink left on my fingers (unlike my first attempt on the crappy generic paper)I'm definitely reordering this stuff for my photo printing needs :) ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor quality prints. Expensive toner and drum. Disappointing
Buyer beware, the printer is priced great, the consumables are not. This printer uses toner like crazy. And it has some sort of feature that seems to estimate the amount of toner usage. When it estimates it is out of toner it will no longer let you print even though the toner cartridge is not empty. I recently had to replace a cartridge that was somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 full. What a scam!

Print quality is poor at best. I have owned 8 computer printers and this one is the first that does not allow you to control the brightness and contrast of the print. What's up with that? And the printer tends to print dark and the colors do not match the originals at all.

And where is the paper tray??? I guess this is an optional item. The paper feed bracket that comes with the printer extends way out in front of the machine and has a capacity of only about 75 sheets.

I cannot recommend this printer and would definately not choose to purchase another like it. My old Minolta color laser printer was a much better printer, but unfortunately it died after 6 years of heavy usage.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor design
There is no paper tray on the 2550L, and when I went to purchase a paper tray (an expensive accessory) directly from HP, they were "out of stock".Also, the printer oftern makes loud noises when performing internal maintenance (not good to suddenly wake up to in the middle of the night).I've sent the printer back and bought a printer from another company.


1-0 out of 5 stars Loud, No Paper Tray, Mediocre print quality
This is a NOISY printer.It clicks, bangs and cycles all the drums on EVERY print!!!
There is NO PAPER TRAY.This is an expensive extra add-on.
The print quality is no bad but no great either.
All in all, I would NOT recommend this printer.There are other printers in this price range (Like the OkiData) that are FAR superior.I bought HP thinking it would be great like the ones in the office.I now have both an HP 2550Ln and the Okidata C5150n.The Oki is a far superior product across the board.
Think twice before buying this product for your home or small office.The noise alone will drive you insane.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice color laser printer at a reasonable price.
It's October 2004 and I've had my 2550L for 3 months now.Overall I'm very satisfied with the product.I have it plugged into my USB 2.0 port and it prints quickly.Also the quality of the text and pictures are good.I selected it because of it's size, USB 2.0 compatible and price.It was one of the least expensive color laser printers on the market and one of the smallest.It really is quite amazing how HP has figured out how to put all four color cartridges in such a compact package.

I print mostly black and white but wanted the option of color without the smearing ink of an ink jet printer.(I also don't like ink jets because you have to clean the heads and replace the cartridges too often.)This printer prints black and white faster and color a little slower and that was just right for my needs.

I've owned Epson, Brother, and Panasonic printers before.This is my first HP and I really do notice a difference in the quality of the build.I would definitely buy a HP printer again.

Why 4 stars instead of 5?Well this model doesn't come with the paper tray that mounts to the bottom.I didn't think it would bother me but it did.So I wound up buying the paper tray seperate.I should have bought one of the other 2550s that included it to start with because it was tough to locate the paper tray option and buy it on its own.It also cost me more all together vs buying a higher end 2550 that came with it already.

One thing that I didn't read in the other reviews that I would have liked to have known is that the printer cycles periodically.It intially scared my wife and I in the middle of the night because we heard noises in our home that we had never heard before.It was the printer cycling.While it is relatively noisy I don't think it would have stopped me from buying it, but I would have liked to have known in advance.

2-0 out of 5 stars Have to replace color cartridges too often
I have had this printer for about 3 months now and have already had to buy a $175 drum and countless toner cartridges. And I don't print anywhere near the maximum output of 30,000 pages per month. I might do 2500 a month. Yes the printer is cheap and prints high quality, but it isn't worth all the extra costs associated with it. And it is very slow if any type of complex document is sent to the printer, VERY SLOW. To upgrade the memory from HP is $500. If I had it to do over I would not have chosen this printer. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible service
My wife and I wasted hours and hours trying to get HP service. HP has outsourced customer service to several developing countries, and each time we called, the representatives were unable to locate the record of our previous call.We were told time and again that we would be contacted by a "case manager" but that never happened.

I looked at all of the laser printers and inkjet.Every article says there is nothing like an inkjet.I can tell you for a fact that they are wrong!!There is no comparison at all when printed on plain paper; this HP LaserJet 3550 is the best!!When printed on gloss paper a great inkjet is better but not by much at all.Meaning you will not need an inkjet unless you already have one.I read all the articles on all brands (OKI, Samsung, HP, Lexmark, Brother, Ricoh, Minolta, Panasonic, etc...) (trust me I spent 2+ weeks reading) of laser printers.I sent (and paid) for samples only to find out that the HP LaserJet printers (3500, 3550, 3700) produce the best output (B&W, color, and photo) and they only have 600*600 res., which goes to show you resolution means nothing (at least with HP)!!
This HP 3550 printer is fast and produced the best photos I have seen on any laser printer (no banding also!).Power consumption is low, it is Quiet for a laser, and of course it is bigger than an inkjet or a cheap (slow) color laser (that is why it is FAST) (they do sell cheaper, smaller, slower models).Trust me it is not that big in size (at least for what it does).HP does not put in half toner cartridges like others (Minolta, etc...).The only thing it could have is a duplex option, but it does a great job a manual duplex.I just can not say anything bad, I was very hesitant about buying a color laser but am very happy with this and am glad I did not go with any of the other brands (especially after getting in my samples of other printers) you will not regret this purchase!!!!!I have the LaserJet 3550n.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works great for copying protected VHS tapes
Let me state up front. All I want to do is make a single copy of purchased VHS tapes for my own use. I am not interested in pirating movies or anything else.

I recently purchased a Panasonic DMRE 85 DVD recorder from Amazon. I love it. I have made many DVDs of videos that I shot myself.I then started looking at my vast, purchased, VHS collection but when I tried to copy one of the tapes, the DVD player reports that it cannot copy copyright protected material. It automatically detects the Macrovision and simply will not copy it.

A friend purchased one of these nifty GO DVD devices and I borrowed it to see if it would work.After putting the GO DVD in between the DVD recorder and the VHS machine, the recorder made a perfect copy of the same tape. No discernable degradation in quality at all.

Of course I immediately put in my order to Amazon for one of these beauties.$70 is a small price to pay compared with replacing my VHS collection with purchased DVDs.Some of my tapes have never been released on DVD so this is really my only option!

5-0 out of 5 stars It Works!
I received this nifty little device this afternoon, and by evening I had made a backup copy of one copy-protected VHS tape ("The Big House" from 1930) to a DVD-R disc. The device seems to have an incredibly simplistic (some would say efficient) design.There aren't a lot of options - just 3 switches, one that scrolls through input selection, one that scrolls through mode selection (the black-and-white mode worked perfectly for the old movie), and one that switches output from NTSC to PAL (I didn't test that one).They didn't spend anything on frills - you could probably reverse engineer this and make what you need from radio-shack parts for a few dollars, but you'd still have to get it first to do that.They didn't even include extra cables - just one - but you probably have another one from your VCR or DVD player.It wouldn't have cost them much, considering mass production and the selling price, to add audio inputs & outputs so you can keep your cables together; but that might defeat the purpose and degrade the audio signal.And there's no power switch, you just leave it on or pull the plug.But it does the job!

You can use GoDVD to darken, lighten, correct bad synch, and make fair use copies of copy protected material. Just connect the audio cables OUT from the playing device to the IN of the recording device like you normally would. The video cable OUT from the playing device goes IN the GoDVD. Then you run a video cable (supplied) from the OUT on the GoDVD to the IN of the recording device. The A/C adaptor is also supplied.

Product works as stated :-).

2-0 out of 5 stars The Good & The Ugly
The good: it does successfully strip Macrovision & allow you to make legal fair use backup copies of tapes you own.

The ugly: Significant picture degradation compared to a straight pass through, & the "enhancement" modes are 3 presets that either : 1. Lighten, 2. darken, or 3. lighten & strip color. Not of much use. If I had been aware of the poor picture quality of this unit, I wouldn't have purchased it. I was hoping to back up a large VHS collection & in some cases improve it by picture enhancement.

For VHS, I suggest first checking to see if each tape has Macrovision (Not all commercial VHS tapes do) & only using this unit if needed.

For making legal fair use backup copies of your dvd's I suggest an inexpensive Pioneer 108 or 109 pc burner & widely available legal freeware programs which will give you a superior disc in every manner. The Pioneers are the best burner of any type I've used.

The only caveat to the above is I tested the unit with both inexpensive & non-video cables (I tried all the following: a generic s-vid, a generic rca, a $50 rca terminated audio cable & a $200 Simply Physics rca terminated digital audio coax cable which gave the worst results of the bunch!); expensive dedicated video cables might improve the picture, but

a. this is only an $80 unit & expensive cables seem a bit excessive

&

b. the $50 audio cable noted above does great going straight into my pioneer dvr-225s on non-Macrovision videos.

5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect solution!
After trying every possible PC software digital video converter (they were all bad to horrible) to make fair use copies of my precious OOP VHS & Beta movies to DVD, I finally found the Sima CT-2 -- thanks to Google and online discussion groups!It works perfectly to defeat my Panasonic DVR's super-sensitive recording nix on transferring my own videotape movies.And for a few tapes that are on the bright side, the darkness setting makes them crisp and more viewable than the original.Is it worth $100+?For me, absolutely -- even though I found it for under $70 using online price searches.

If you want to preserve your precious videotape movies and have a DVR that can burn DVDs, this is the perfect solution for you! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fast, but Buggy
This printer has a great price, good specs, and fast printing.However, it does have some issues that hopefully HP will work-out.

The firmware seems pretty buggy.We've had several different problems with the printer crashing.Every couple days or so we get a "Service Error" message on the screen and the printer has to be rebooted.Also, I tried printing a large (1000 page) pdf on it and it would just freeze after printing around 140 pages.It froze twice on the exact same number of pages.I had to break it up into print jobs of 100 pages each.We've also seen where it gets in an infinite cycle where it says, "Processing Job" and the data light blinks, but nothing ever comes out.Again, it requires a reboot.We upgraded the firmware, but the problems didn't go away.

FYI, a parallel port doesn't seem to deliver data fast enough to this printer!It consumes data faster than the port can send it.We could only achieve the 45ppm when we hooked it up to the USB 2.0 port.Not sure about the performance when using HP JetDirect internal print server.

5-0 out of 5 stars Speed and quality
This printer is ridiculously fast.We use one as a network printer and I have not been able to walk the 30 feet from my office to the printer before it has finished printing 3 or 4 page PDFs, emails, etc.This printer is faster than our photocopier.1200x1200 dpi gives excellent detail. ...

Amazon.com Review

Manufacturers have made it increasingly easy to connect a host of FireWire and USB devices to your computer, but often at the expense of the microphone port and other jacks. Enter the Griffin iMic audio adapter, an affordable USB device that lets users connect microphones, speakers, cassette decks, and virtually any other audio source to their Macs and PCs for recording or playback. Among its many uses are recording voices or instruments for home movies, turning your laptop into a DJ studio, or converting your LPs and cassettes into MP3s or CDs. The iMic includes two 1/8-inch mini-jack ports (one mic/line-level input and one speaker output), along with an RCA-to-miniplug adapter for connecting audio components such as phonographs. Thanks to a small toggle switch on the unit, the microphone input can handle both mic-level recording and line-level signals. In addition, the iMic works with most recording software, and even comes with a CD-ROM loaded with Final Vinyl for Macintosh (for recording LPs), along with trial versions of several other applications.

Design and Setup
The iMic looks like a compact version of the sleek power adapters that come with iBooks. Its major shortcoming from a design standpoint is the length of its cable, which measures a mere foot-and-a-half long. Users who plug the device into their computers' rear USB ports had better hope that their other peripherals have far longer cables; otherwise, they'll be huddling close to their hard drives while recording. Installation was effortless, however--simply plug the iMic into a USB port and you're ready to go. The iMic is both Mac and PC compatible, though owners of pre-OS X and pre-Windows XP operating systems may not be able to enjoy its full array of features. For instance, the iMic only acts as a recording device for Windows 98 SE and 2000 systems, and is unable to output music. Some users have also reported the need to update their firmware in order for the iMic to work properly.

The iMic comes with a quick start manual, but it's fairly minimal, which could make it a bit confusing to operate for people who don't have recording experience. Fortunately, Griffin's web site (www.griffintechnology.com) spells out the instructions in relatively good detail. Mac users should note that they'll need to fiddle with the Speech and Sound Preference panels and enable the "iMic USB audio system" before use, while PC users will need to select the iMic under the Sounds and Audio Devices control panel.

Features and Performance
We tested the iMic in two different applications--converting a cassette to MP3 and recording a voice with an external three-pin microphone using Griffin's GarageBand microphone cable. The cassette conversion went smoothly. After connecting the tape deck through the RCA-to-miniplug adapter and flipping the toggle switch to the line-level setting, we used the Final Vinyl software to convert the files to WAV format. Once the files were recorded, it was simple to import them to iTunes and convert them to MP3 or AAC files. Given the symbiotic relationship between iTunes and the iPod, it was also a snap to sync the files for portable play. The audio quality was quite good for a low-priced sound card--the iMic offers 24-bit audio processing, though most computers support a maximum of 16-bit sampling at this juncture--and thus was restricted more by the quality of the initial cassette than the iMic itself. However, the increased capacity bodes well for future upgrades.

The device also recorded the microphone audio quite easily, this time into the GarageBand application for the Mac. The recording quality in this application was also good--no background noise or static. As with the cassette example, the quality will likely depend more on the source equipment and software than on the iMic. When we were finished, it was simple to transfer the recording to other multimedia applications, such as iMovie. One source of confusion, however, was the toggle switch, which we had to move to the microphone setting (which includes a preamp) for proper operation. The problem is that the toggle switch is counter-intuitively labeled--the microphone setting is under the speaker icon rather than microphone icon--so it's easy to set it incorrectly and wonder why the input isn't working.

On the whole, though, the iMic is a very good value for the price, and is a great addition for Mac users who miss the once-standard microphone ports. Serious musicians and other high-end users should probably invest in professional equipment, but the rest of us will have a ball. --Rivers Janssen

5-0 out of 5 stars Works Great With My Mac Mini
I bought a Mac mini a couple months ago to archive my tapes & photos (among other things). To convert my tapes to CD/MP3 I had to have some sort of USB or Firewire input device. Most pro Audio interfaces are over $100 and I figured what the heck, I'll try the iMic and even if it is a dog, I'll only be out $30 or so. Well, this little device provides great simultaneous 2 way stereo sound (i.e. recording/monitoring simultaneously) and I love it. The A to D converters on this thing are very good and I am totally pleased with the quality of the audio. My only gripe is that the line level/mic switch on the iMic seems to be labeled backwards as line level is with the switch towards the Mic icon. Griffin, why this one little flaw???

I plan to do some guitar/vocals thru the iMic via my Behringer mixer. But that is in the future. For $30 you can't go wrong. If I had paid $100 I would be saying the same thing. The only problem I have had recording is the 4200 RPM Mac Mini hard drive is apparently too slow (even with iMic plugged directly into computer and with audio buffers at various settings) to keep up with realtime recording and this causes severe audio stuttering.

The solution was to buy an external Firewire hard drive. Recording to an external firewire drive has totally solved my audio problems and so far I have converted about 15 audio/voice cassettes to CD and into my iTunes library as MP3s. All flawless and clean.I listen to my old cassettes on my iPod shuffle now. I use Bias Peak LE and Bias Soundsoap to record/clean up the audio and let me just say that my little audio rig with the iMic as the front end....is AWESOME!!! You can't go wrong with this little jewel. I am one satisfied customer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good for specific uses; not for others.
First, let's describe what this is: it's a sound card. That means it offers analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversion on the device itself, and is capable of shuffling that data over a USB connection to your computer. It is _not_ a cable adaptor, which confused one previous reviewer; it is _not_ a "live" device - you can't use it as part of a studio monitor, which confused another. It is similarly _not_ a format converter. However, it _is_ useful for bringing in analogue sound to your Macintosh (or, in theory, PC).

The hardware itself is pretty impressive for the price, when dealing with line-level input. Drum captures are surprisingly crisp; piano capture is surprisingly lush; vocals are strong. It is _not_ professional equipment, but it's also not $300; the value for money is quite high. The input fidelity is significantly better than my Powerbook's onboard A/D converter, and the other, more expensive, card I have in our PC tower system.

On the downside, its analogue grounding and shielding is - perhaps unsurprisingly, given that it's a USB device - weak. In an RF-noisy area, you will probably pick up some noise that you won't hear on your stereo. I suspect this is where some complaints about hum have come from. I was able to create this problem at home, by playing with it. Insuring best possible ground connections on all other cabling, and adding some local shielding, can solve this problem if you live in an RF-noisy area. Similarly, turning off buzz-creating noise sources nearby - such as small motors, dimmer-switch controlled lighting, and so on - will help. This is not a disqualifying issue, but is one that should be taken into consideration.

On the other hand, the phono level pre-preamplification is simply poor - noisy and just kind of unpleasant - and the RIAA equalisation preset is iffy. If you want to use this device with a turntable, use your own first stage amplification to get it up to line level. (If you aren't in a band or an audiophile, what that means is: plug it into your stereo's "tape out" sockets instead of connecting your turntable directly to it.) Given that microphone input is similar, you'll probably want to use a powered microphone, or route your passive microphone through other equipment, before digitising.

As for the software: "Final vinyl" is mostly disappointing. As a data-capturing utility, it's adequate; the ability to set basic equalisation at capture time is useful and works well. It can be successfully used to extract individual tracks from a longer capture.

But as an editor, it is woefully inadequate. Even the simple track-creating task it was built for is laden with unpleasant surprises. Clearly, they did not throw significant testing resources at the software; it suffers badly from the "if you don't use it the exactly same way we use it, random things happen" problem often seen in products from smaller software houses.

_Many_ seemingly-reasonable actions put it into an unrecoverably discombobulated state. For example, trying to add a cue marker to the left of an existing cue marker confuses it irredeemably; you will probably end up with random cue mark placing, and when you try to start deleting cues, end up with a negative number of tracks. It is also easy to reorder random segments of sound in such a way that it does not, in fact, appear in the editor, but does appear in playback; I haven't found the pattern to that problem yet, but it is recurring and may involve selecting ranges for post-capture eq adjustment.

Most of these problems require you to revert to original capture data and flush the undo buffer, which means lost work. However, if you can figure out how _they_ use it, I suspect it works pretty well; but I shouldn't have to work constantly to figure out whether I'm going to trash all my work by moving a cue marker the wrong way, or whether trying to bring down levels at one point in a sample is going to reorder or copy other parts of the sample at random.

In summary: very good value for dollar hardware at line input level; less so for direct turntable input; and if you're thinking about buying it mostly for the software, get something else. I wanted it for the hardware, and as such, I'm pleased.

3-0 out of 5 stars Suitable for most purposes
I was a mac user from years back, and was surprised when I found out my new Mac mini didn't have an sudio in...I was planning on turning some casette tapes into MP3 files.

While it was usable for this purpose, it has a small noticable mid-range hum.This was not from my casette deck, as the hum is consistent no matter what kind of input I use, from casette to a small powered microphone from Radio Shack.It might be suitable for some podcasting, audio blogging, etc., it would NOT be usable for audio input into something like Garage Band... there are higher end products for that.

5-0 out of 5 stars a fantastic little solution for a mac
I really am thrilled with my purchase.I have a older mac.It is 600 mhz g4 and I am digitizing a bunch of old records and tapes with the imic using final vinyl and itunes and it really is perfect.The only issue that I had was hooking my turntable up to the imic directly.I was grounding it with an old receiver that I had then running the signal directly from the turn table to the imic and it was aweful.Tons of static etc.Then Ihad the turntable go through my receiver and out to the imic and it is perfect.I quickly learned the ins and outs of using final vinyl and it is just great.I suppose there are a few pointers that are left out of the documentation that I figured out by trial and error but that's alright.Also I suppose the usb cord is too short and I will be purchasing a usb extension.Other than that I am thrilled with this little device and the price is perfect.

2-0 out of 5 stars $40 for what?!
I bought this today at the local computer store for $40. I have an iBook and I wanted to record myself playing bass, guitar, mandolin, whathaveyou and apple doesn't put audio-in ports on their computers anymore. I'm an audio nut. iMic fell short of every expectation I had.

- They advertise as being affordable. Since when was $40 cheap? I don't get paid much and I try to get the most bang for my buck. iMic was like spending $40 on snakes and sparklers for the 4th of July.
- I can live with the white noise, which is noticable. I like my audio to be pristine, but the audio from the iMic is crap. $40 of simple wiring should provide perfect audio quality. There's constantly white noise fuzzing away whenever it's plugged in. But it's a mellow white noise and it's tolerable. Still, I could have spent the day with some wire, clippers, and a slodering iron and came out with the same results for cheaper.
- The delay! there is a delay between the audio going into the imic an and the audio coming out the speakers. That's not too bad if you're just making mp3s of old vinyls or something, but if you want to record yourself playing guitar it couldn't be any worse. You play a note and you don't hear it for at least a quarter of a second after you play it. That is completely unacceptable.
- it doesn't work with the software it came with. When I tried to use it to record myself playing Audacity, the program that came with it, wouldn't record (or hear) the right channel when I had the recorder set to stereo. When I set it to mono it sounded like it was under heavy distortion. I couldn't troubleshoot this though I tried for over an hour.

another thing that bothered me about the iMic was the packaging. I would have taken it back if it wasn't packed so you had to use the jaws of life to get it out of the plastic, thus rendering it unreturnable.

I would strongly recommend looking for another device. Don't buy an iMic. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars My opinion....
I did NOT like the quality of photos that were printed on this machine.I returned this item and bought an HP 7760 photosmart (which was cheaper).I printed the exact same picture on the HP that I had printed on the Epson R320.There was a HUGH difference!!The Epson picture was grainy with a reddish tint to the photo.The HP photo was perfect.I would suggest foregoing the "novelty" of printing a label on a disk in exchange for better quality photos....which is what a printer is for.

1-0 out of 5 stars prints OK - but I took it back
I bought the EPSON R320 30 days ago for just under $200, it is now is selling for $20 less in the same store.I took it back because it is a stupid printer, the default settings baffle me, if you swap between 8x11.5 paper and 4x6 photos you never know how your printout is going look. The printer seemed to go into lala land while using it, had to shut it off and re-power on to get it going again (then I had to reset the settings for the type of print I was doing). The software supplied with the printer "FILM FACTORY" is worse then useless; it seems it was designed to use ink uselessly.I got better prints just using MSWORD or the Camedia program that came with my camera.The store (FRYS) took it back and I bought a bubble jet at same price, which so far is working fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Second Time around!
I purchased the R300 as a floor model at a discount. Got some great full sized borderless prints of my scanned paintings using Photoshop 6 on my MAC G4, system 9. When I connected the R300 to my MAC G5 I had to use the older USB 1 cable rather than the shorter USB 2 which I hadjust purchased for use with this printer, because the USB 2 was too short to reach G5 cpu. I got those terrible lines, must have cleaned the print heads 20 times, downloaded the newest drivers, no change. I turned the R300 in and got a new R320 and a USB 2 cable. No more streaks! If you buy this printer be sure to get theUSB 2 (backwards compatible) cable.
I was also able to import my Illustrator (8) created logo and paste (special) it into the CD label software and print onto the CD. Really a great printer for an artist who has to run a business to promot my art!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, I Love It. . . It's Amazing!
I've created an audio book and instead of paying someone else to imprint the CDs, I wanted to be able to do them myself, at my convenience, and/or upon the sale of a CD.

When I first set up the printer, the disc printed fine but I had a hard time with the case wrapper which was full color. The colors were streaking and seemed over-saturated with too much magenta. But, alas, it WASN'T THE PRINTER's fault. I did clean the heads, however, and then I changed my print settings from CMYK to RGB. This great little desktop printer then polished the job off accurately.

I'm impressed that for such a small amount of money I can have the ability to create my own labeling right here beside me and they look so professional!!And the CD case wrappers? Wow!

I have two other printers, both HP - a B&W laser and an oversized tabloid-sized printer. The last little desktop printer was a Canon and it's been in the closet (I'm sure all dried up and obsolete) for many years. The electronic features on the Stylus R320 amazed me. With an LCD screen onboard, it's so easy to program. And, the separate ink cartridges are a plus. I just spent $58 for a color combination cartridge for the oversized printer, but now when this one runs low on one particular color, I can replace it for only $13 at the computer store.

Hats off to Epson for this model. I hope to enjoy it through many many customers. Yipppeeee.

4-0 out of 5 stars Had a difficult time making the scanner work.
I previously owned a couple of HP electronic products and I was satisfied with their performance. I wanted a multi-function printer so I bought the Laserjet 3015.

The first time I installed the software, I had no problem with the printer, copier and fax functions.But I could not get the HP Toolbox to load and the scanner would not work. For three mornings, I was on the phone with HP support, trying to figure out how to solve the problem. I downloaded exe files from HP's website and installed them as instructed but that did not help.It was only after the third try and working with a third support rep that I was finally able to make it work.

My only wish is that I bought a system with a flatbed scanner but for the price, I can live with what I have.It's now working fine with me and I am happy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Can FAX from Software?
This is to answer previous post/question by Edward Johnsen, if HP-3015 can FAX directly from computer software.
I am also in research for a "all-in-one" reasonable price solution, and the HP-3015 seems to "fit-the-bill". I wrote to HP support regarding this inquiry and I got a satisfying response as the following:

Based on the information you supplied in your e-mail, you are asking about faxing software for your HP LaserJet 3015.

Yes, the printer has Send Fax software which enables you to fax from the desktop.The document at the link below provides an overview of the options available for this product:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c00064389

In summary, the answer is YES.

4-0 out of 5 stars More of a question than review....
....this unit looks really good based on my preliminary research. What it doesn't make clear is whether or not it permits desktop faxing, i.e. using a program on my PC, which is of course connected to this fax device via USB, to fax directly from an application, such as MS word.
Any thoughts out there?

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, superb quality
The photos from this printer are superb.I've used it to print wedding photos and announcements - I couldn't be happier.It's kind of surprising that it only costs $99.Thus far, I've printed approximately 40-8x11 pictures and 80-4x6 pictures and I've only had to change ONE of the six cartridges (although another one is almost on its way out).

One tip... when printing, always open up the printer properties window and select the proper print quality (text, photo, 'best' photo, etc) AND paper type.It makes a huge difference.Although Epson suggests using their paper (of course they do) I've used cheaper photo inkjet paper with great results.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best for disc printing.
Being on a budget, I bought this printer solely for printing discs. Now that I've printed more than 300, I'm skeptical about the glowing reviews I had read before purchase.

The word for this printer is temperamental. Going from power off to printing a disc is an ordeal, and the steps have to be perfectly executed. My tips: Make sure the disc door is closed, turn it on and wait for it to start up, open the door, put the disc in, and try to print. If you're lucky, the disc will print. If you're not, the printer will tell you to close the door by quickly flashing all of the lights. Close the door, hit the trash button, and wait. When it's done, open the door and try again.

Having 6 ink tanks is a hassle. All six ran out at the same time, and when each of the color tanks sell for $14 at Staples, with black being MORE expensive, oddly enough, replacing them is a nightmare on the wallet. Be prepared to spend almost $90 to replace the tanks with Epson brand ink. I got through about 250 discs, and more than half were very simple black text with a small red logo. I also couldn't find a bundled 6 pack, so there was no discount there.

Additionally, after 6 months, the R200 stopped ejecting the disc correctly. You'll hear the wheels spin, but the tray will go no where. If you don't help the printer eject the disc by gently pulling, the next job fails, and you have to go through the time consuming door close and wait ordeal.

Having never printed on paper, I can't speak for the quality there, but with discs, the colors have been inconsistent. I'll print out 6 that are right, and the next one will have too much magenta, or not enough blue. I've had this problem with and without Epson brank ink.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a low cost printer to print discs, look elsewhere. This printer is not worth the hassle.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good news and bad news
The Epson Photo R200 is a mixture of sweet and sour to be sure - you will have to decide what will weigh heavier for you:

GOOD NEWS: 1) Boy, it's cheap. I got mine for $99 bucks, and that's pretty great for a printer that can do regular, photo, and CD and DVD prints. As far as function, it's one stop shopping; 2) It's easy to set up, and runs real quiet - Epson seems to have corrected the biggest problem with their previous printers: they were real noisy. The R200 is nice and small, very quiet, and prints reasonably quickly.
BAD NEWS: 1) Epson seems congenitally inable to create software for their printers that is completely useful, or completely functional. The disc printing software is clunky and awkward, and the most useful feature - being able to nudge a label a little in each direction to get it just right - doesn't work. Making a label that is a step above a Brother P-touch becomes a real effort, since the software doesn't play well with a lot of fonts, or more than one inset graphic. In short, for professionals or small businesses there will be a certain amount of frustration and set up time required.
BAD NEWS 2) The printer is confused easily, and doesn't recover well from a malaligned CD tray or paper misfeed. To reset the blinking lights you have to remove all media, close all the trays and drawers, and hit the blinking button, which don't seem to work reliably. Most times, it's simply faster to turn the thing off (closing all trays anyway) and reset it that way.
I would also add as "bad news" the six cartridges - even though the prints are very nice. Epson's business model is cheap printers, and supplies that are a little pricey. If you shop around, you can get the cartridges for 12.50, but more typically they're about $15 - $20, coming out to easily $20 more to fully reload the printer than any other printer with two $35 cartridges.

Unless you've got a high volume of cds or dvds to print, I would recommend another printer, specifically one of HP's excellent DeskJet series, which do excellent photos, and dual-sided prints, which the Epson doesn't do. If you need a CD printer, and don't mind a little aggravation for the functionality, the Photo R200 will serve up a decent helping of both.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better that I expected
I myself have owned at least close to 10 printers.Together with the printers I have used in the workplace and tried at the stores; this by far is the best.

1) Value wise, this is a sub $100 printers.It has a CD/DVD rack for direct to CD/DVD printing, borderless printouts, etc.

2) I love the Epsons for pictures.Prints from other manufacturers tend to be pixelated.If you look closer, you can see the dots that made up the whole picture.Epsons looks exactly like a traditional picture as long as you use the right paper and settings.(Although there is no reason to use a printer now that you have all the great deals from Costco, Sam's (online upload too - after uploading go to the store and it is ready).But for unconventional sizes and school projects, wallet sizes, pictures to fit your frames... I still use a personal printer)

3) Well, all the Epsons I have owned were as loud as a supersonic Concorde; but this one is a real surprise.With kids, my only time to work on the computer is late at night.This doesn't bother the neighbours at all.

4) There are some commercial covers that are sold just solely to protect your printer's innards from dust. I was very impressed at the ingenuity of the design.The top paper rack folds up on itself and serves as a cover for the printer, so you wont need to cover your printer.

5) It is fast.

1-0 out of 5 stars my last epson... promise!
I had the stylus photo 820 before and it went bad in a couple months and started spitting ink onto the paper rollers, which ruined every page I printed.I swore I'd never buy another Epson, but the CD printing feature reeled me in and I tried out this R200 model.I have the same issues others are having: the tray does not load properly so you have to do it over and over.The ink is STILL spitting onto the rollers, just like my last Epson, so it ruins about 75% of the discs that go through.Oh, and what did Epson say when I described the problems I'm having within a month of buying it?"Keep in mind this is a home consumer printer and has not been designed to perform bulk CD printing."Okay, so normal home consumer use is to print 10 discs and never use it again - I haven't even changed the ink yet.This time I'm serious: I'll never buy another Epson. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Cartridge At A Great Price
I use this cartridge in an HP DeskJet 5150 printer. The printer always yields crisp, well defined color prints. Unlike some people I think that the cartridge lasts a reasonable amount of time, although I don't print photos very often, which can definitely use ink at a voracious pace.

My biggest criticism of HP cartridges in general is the price, but the price here at Amazon is the best I have found, and I think the Amazon price point, particularly combined with free shipping and no tax makes this cartridge reasonably priced. Having said all that, there is one area where the product could be improved, which is the pronounced tendency of the ink to smear when wet. I realize that this is a not-unusual trait of inkjet printers, but I am more acutely aware of the problem with this printer and ink combination than with most other inkjet printers I have used.

Overall the HP 57 is a good value for the money, particularly if you shop around for good deals.

2-0 out of 5 stars runs out way to fast
I opribnt maybe 40 pictures and it runs out.At twenty six bucaroonies.That's a lot of money/ picture.I found out Costco will print pictures while you wait for Nineteen pennies a fraction of the copst.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
I just bought a new HP PSC 1210 All-in-one, and printed 4x6 photos on the free sample premium plus glossy photo paper, after installing the HP 57 tri color cartridge. The result? Astonishing!! There's no way anyone can tell that the photograph is a computer printout and not developed on kodak paper.

True, developing 4x6 can be as low as a quarter per print at some places, making this scheme uneconomical, but I'd highly recommend this for printing larger photos. (5x7, 8x10).

3-0 out of 5 stars The pictures are great, the ink cost is high
I use HP 57 and HP 58 cartridges for 6-ink photo printing on my HP PSC 2210 multifunction machine.The photos look great on HP premium photo paper, just like the ones from my local 1-hour photo center.However, after 20 pages (about 60 4*6 photos), the HP 58 cartridge is gone, and there is only about 1/4 left on the HP 57 cartridge. This is killing me.I will just use the local photo lab from now on :-(

3-0 out of 5 stars poor information
HP does not offer full information on number of color prints:
Impossible to have an approximation of ink costs. Why so vague?

Ex: 391 prints??? What size?
ex: 15% Coverage??? Photos or text what size paper, 4x6, 8 1/2 x 11?
Any variation of the above will make a great change in ink costs.

Give us the approximate cost for any average 4x6 color photo.
Give us the approximate cost of an average full page text with some color. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Most economical laser toner for small business home office.
I Have been using Brother laser printers which use this cartridge for about 7 years. GREAT PRODUCT. In fact the Brother multi function machine I currently use is a (now discontinued) MFC 9600. It has now been replaced with the nearly identical MFC 9700. I have had it for some 5 years with regular use and it works flawlesly. I use about 3 or 4 TN460 cartridges per year. Brother seems to be about the only manufacturer which provides a decent economical value for laser toner. Yes their printers/multi function machines cost a little more initially, but, do the long term math. You pay dearly in toner costs down the road with other better known or more highly publisized brands. I am continually surprised when I inquire at any office supply store about the cost per print or cost of operation of any given laser printer. The sales people are baffled, and never seem to know. This to me is THE question to ask. And, with the cost a some excellent full featured heavy duty Brother multifunction machines (fax scanner laser printer) very close to $300, it really does not make any sense to buy anything else if you are a small business home office with fairly regular laser/fax usage. Yes you might get a laser printer for $100 less. But after a few cartridges, you will wish you had a Brother using this economical cartridge.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good product, great price
I've come back time and again to Amazon.com for this toner cartridge. Their price has been the lowest I could find anywhere time after time. You can feel confident if you purchase it here, you're getting very close to the rock-bottom price.

5-0 out of 5 stars very nice
No problems with these, and great price at amazon.

5-0 out of 5 stars high yield -
The cartridge is easy to install and lasts a long time... haven't had it botch any print run in two years of operation, in fact, the brother printer that uses it, just hummmms along tackling any job my small business needs... a winner! and the price at amazon is a winner, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's Ink.
It's ink. It's great. What more can I say?
Actually, Brother is pretty good about estimating how many pages will print before the ink runs out. This cartridge is a much better value than the TN430 as you get twice the output for maybe a 30% increase in cost.

Enjoy your laser printer! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Still better off with separate units, but a nice toy
The Canon MF8170c is the very first AIO (All-In-One) fax-scan-copy-printer to feature color laser printing at its pricepoint and without the 500 lb bulk of a standalone copier/printer.While you can probably both save money and increase quality and speed with separate units doing the same task, after buying my first AIO HP OfficeJet G85 several years ago I was hooked and promised myself never to go back to the copy-by-scan-and-print method.The color print speed, noise, and lack of certain features are worth knocking a star off, but if you can afford it and don't need certain higher-end features its well worth it for home office use.

The MF8170c is a heavy (ships at 106 lbs - 2-day shipping on this would pay for an Amazon Prime membership!), big (25" x 20" x 20"), relatively complicated looking unit but is a relative pussycat to get going by USB - just install drivers from the CD.Ethernet connections weren't as easy; it and my Netgear WGR614 router didn't like each other at first, but once I figured the problem was the printer didn't have an IP address, the installation software let me solve that problem and I was off and running.

B&W print quality is in general quite crisp, color print quality very good and both well above that of the HP 4650n I used at my prior job.This is not a photo printer, however; I found using both copy and glossy paper my G85 substantially outperformed it even when the MF8170c was set in photo mode.Fax and copy functionality and quality were ok, although it feels like my old G85 had more features.Where this lacks is in scanning.Scan quality is actually pretty good, but you can't scan through the network and have to have a USB connection (and drivers).Annoying.

Where I knock a star off (and would probably knock a second off if it weren't a unique item) is three fold.First, no power switch means even in energy saver mode this has fans going; it's not hugely loud (compared to my late lamented airplane-engine-sounding 15-year-old Epson ActionLaser II) but it's annoying and takes forever to turn off and warm up.Second, for a 2005 printer color prints like its 2000 at a rated 4 ppm after a 1 minute warmup.This isn't surprising given Canon quietly skimped on RAM.The printer has only a measly 24MB, a fact convieniently omitted from the available technical specifications and one I only found out about by looking around on the web browser based internal monitor.Finally, I really don't like the fact that I can't buy a duplex (dual-sided) printing collator, although the design makes me hope there should be some accessories coming out shortly.

If you have more than 2-3 people who need to do routine color printing or scanning this isn't your machine.I'd pick up one of the networked color laser Lexmarks and a good monochrome AIO unit instead.However, for home office use this is state of the art.I like its large bulk in the corner of my home office even with its limitations.

4-0 out of 5 stars Review of Canon's New MF8170c All in One Copier
This unit is so new, it is hard to find in any stores, much less set up as a demo. I bought sight unseen based on features and Canon's good name. I was not disappointed.

Assembly took about one hour, including installing 5 toner cartridges (1 large black and 4 color toners). Software set up went perfectly. The manual and instruction cards were very well written.

The first color copy on plain paper looked really good. Better than what my Epson 2200 color inkjet would produce. I had some old glossy laser paper and then printed on that. Not a big improvement over plain. Images are a bit grainy and some banding in large color areas. I then printed a digital photo off my computer. Not a vast improvement over the copy function image. Same results where plain paper looks great (for a plain paper copy) and the glossy image was not near as good as decent inkjet can produce. I have not scanned or faxed, yet with this machine.

Final thoughts: the unit takes a long time to make the first color copy, probably a full 60 seconds. The unit has NO OFF switch, just an energy saver button. Hence, the unit is always on. The unit will sit for hours after copying making fan noises. Don't sleep in the same room as this unit. Much later, it goes into true sleep mode and stays quiet. Even making black and white copies takes a considerable amount of time for the first copy. Images in B&W rival those of my HP Laserjet 4000--a machine with reportedly better resolution. Don't expect photo quality from this laser copier. You will need a good inkjet for that. But for business or home letters with small graphics or small photos in a newsletter, this unit does an amazing job. I will sell my HP 4000 but keep my Epson ink jet. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A whole lot of printer
I have the HP Color Laserjet 3550. Straight off the bat let me state that this printer is big. When I say big, I mean big. When it was delivered I was astonished at the size of the box and after unpacking it I spend a few minutes taking in its size. I then realized that it was taller than I anticipated, even though the dimensions quoted in my prepurchase research were accurate. Seeing is believing. Despite the size, it is well designed and infact, beautifully made.

Setup of the printer and toners was extremely easy, and the installation of drivers was okay. After following the instructions given in the setup guide, the installation process stopped on my PC for no apparent reason. I eventually restarted the pc with the setup cd in the machine AND the printer connected to the pc and everything sorted itself out perfectly.

When I did my first print (the printer's demo page) and saw the quality on plain copy paper, I knew that I had made the right decision on purchasing the HP LaserJet 3550. So far, I am extremely pleased with this printer. I run a home-based desktop publishing business, and this printer has handled everything I have thrown at it without problems - business cards, labels, flyers, invoices, etc. As DonF said in his review, you will not regret this purchase!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars HP Color LaserJet 3550 Printer
I looked at all of the laser printers and inkjet.Every article says there is nothing like an inkjet.I can tell you for a fact that they are wrong!!There is no comparison at all when printed on plain paper; this HP LaserJet 3550 is the best!!When printed on gloss paper a great inkjet is better but not by much at all.Meaning you will not need an inkjet unless you already have one.I read all the articles on all brands (OKI, Samsung, HP, Lexmark, Brother, Ricoh, Minolta, Panasonic, etc...) (trust me I spent 2+ weeks reading) of laser printers.I sent (and paid) for samples only to find out that the HP LaserJet printers (3500, 3550, 3700) produce the best output (B&W, color, and photo) and they only have 600*600 res., which goes to show you resolution means nothing (at least with HP)!!
This HP 3550 printer is fast and produced the best photos I have seen on any laser printer (no banding also!).Power consumption is low, it is Quiet for a laser, and of course it is bigger than an inkjet or a cheap (slow) color laser (that is why it is FAST) (they do sell cheaper, smaller, slower models).Trust me it is not that big in size (at least for what it does).HP does not put in half toner cartridges like others (Minolta, etc...).The only thing it could have is a duplex option, but it does a great job a manual duplex.I just can not say anything bad, I was very hesitant about buying a color laser but am very happy with this and am glad I did not go with any of the other brands (especially after getting in my samples of other printers) you will not regret this purchase!!!!!I have the LaserJet 3550n.

I've owned several Canon portable printers in the past, including the Canon BJC-70, the BJC-80, and two Apple StyleWriter 2200's (BJC-70 bearing the Apple logo). I've also owned several portable printers made by other companies, none really as satisfying as the Canon printers.

I'm now using the Canon i80 (HP zd7000 & Windows XP). This printer clearly evolved from those earlier Canon printers, improving in some ways and not in others. On the positive side, print quality and speed is roughly on par with many desktop printers within this price range. Canon has also greatly reduced, and perhaps even elininated, the problem of the ink jets drying and clogging between print jobs (on earlier BJC models, the ink jets would dry out if the printer wasn't used for a week or so). And, unlike the i70, this printer comes with the multi-voltage power supply needed by international travelers.

Other things have not improved. Like those earlier printers, the i80 suffers from paper feed problems, ranging from paper not feeding at all (unless forced), to multiple sheets of paper feeding at the same time, to paper not feeding straight. Of course, this is more pronounced with very thin or very thick paper (thick envelopes are especially troublesome, often only solved by sharply creasing the envelope edges before using). All this is more of a nuisance than a serious problem, so should not automatically rule out this printer from purchase consideration. It doesn't happen all the time, or even most of the time, and can be reduced with experience.

The price continues to be high, especially with accessories often included with other portable printers (cables, battery attachments, batteries, and so on). If on-site portable printing is truly needed, requiring the purchase of accessories, I would have to recommend another printer with built-in battery. However, if one only needs to easily move a printer between hotel rooms, business meetings, or offices, the performance and convenience of the i80 wins out.

Some things are a mixed bag. The case design of the i80 has improved over earlier Canon models. The paper holder/cover now completely covers the printer, protecting it from dirt/dust or while packed in a bag. However, at the same time, Canon switched that case from a neutral near-black to an oddball copper/tan color which doesn't match any computer I've ever seen. Of course, this doesn't really affect performance, but it is distractingly noticable.

Finally, some things have gotten worse compared to earlier models. The i80 does not properly print some web pages in Internet Explorer without an external plug-in (Easy Web Print), which adds another IE toolbar complete with bright red Canon logo and buttons not matching other toolbar icons. Without this plug-in, the right side of some web pages are cut off. Canon either needs to reduce the intrusiveness of this plug-in or integrate this capability into the print driver as other companies do (the three other printers I now own handle these same web pages properly without a plug-in). Luckily, printing everything else with the i80 is entirely painless.

In conclusion, all portable printers are a compromise offering portable convenience with some inconveniences. The Canon i80 is no exception. However, the inconveniences associated with the i80 are minor, easily outstripped by overall convenience and performance. As such, I can comfortably recommend this printer to any fellow road warrier.

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great little printer!
I would recommend this printer to anyone who is looking for the convenience of having a good quality printer for trips when there is a need to work in a hotel room. The printer is small and compact and actually performs better than expected; it prints remarkable fast. The only challenge I find is periodically more than one piece of paper comes through the printer at the same time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Canon falls short with Apple user
A dual-purpose printer for traveling, works almost to my satisfaction. Printing 4x6 snapshots for friends does not interface well with my Apple PowerBook G4 with OS X Panther, however. Photos are blurry, out of focus, flat with the Canon program. Photos printed using Apple's iPhoto are quite acceptable - even up to 8x10 in most cases. A workaround can be done with Photoshop Elements, but seems a bit unnecessary with a product from Canon. A pricey printer, but functions quite well in my experience, and fits my requirements as all-around printer where laser quality is not an issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Canon i80 Perfect for Golf Outings, etc.
I bought this to pack with my eMachines notebook because we take 40 guys to Myrtle Beach each October. I needed less hassle than carrying a bulky laser (I was using a Samsung ML1210), and something faster than an older inkjet. Do not compare speed to much older inkjets of 4 or 5 years ago -- this seems faster than my Samsung laser for one-off output. The black text printing is very quick for an inkjet. Posting scores and Team sheets should go rather quick. I do not plan to do color photos because I have less-expensive options. Size is about 12" x 7" x 2" thick -- perfect for packing away. Now I have EVERYTHING in one carry bag -- nothing to think about or lose. It does grab several sheets at one time every once in awhile. I can live with it if it doesn't become persistent. I just purchased the LK-51 Battery Supply to be truly transportable -- works 6 hours on one charge with the included Lith-Ion Battery. Printer needs USB Male A / Male B Cable -- order online very inexpensively (don't buy at local stores -- $22 or $30 is a rip-off for these; you can get them as cheap as $2 at CyberGuys.com).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great prints in a small package
I just bought one of these little beauties and am very happy with it.It fits right into the case with your laptop or notebook so that it can go anywhere with you.Easy set up and high quality prints that are sure to please.Alot of added features that allow you to stitch together photographs and other little tricks.The price can't be beat, as it will be $50 more in an electronics store.The only hitch is that it doesn't come with a USB cable, so add $30 to the price tag. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost there
Bottom line is, most of the glitches have been worked out. Works great with mymac G4 and a co-worker uses Windows and it works for him as well. This is great for AM talk radio. The only negative is that Griffin hasn't come out with an external antenna that plugs right into the 1/8 jack on the side of the unit. It took me a few minutes to make one but obviously most consumers don't know what kind of wire and/or how to solder the conections to make their own antenna. I didn't have to have an external antenna since I live in the middle of the city but it did help a bit to make the signal that much cleaner. 5 stars for the unit and the software but 1 star for Griffin not coming out with a antenna that you can buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy with my Radio Shark
I just got my RadioShark four days ago.I had read the reviews and had a bit of concern about the software and the reception.I am running XP on and am in Seattle with good radio signal strength.During the past four days I have used the scheduling and playback features several times.It worked flawlessly.I am very happy with the purchase.I have found that on the lowest quality WMA settings, an hour of radio time takes about 28 megs.I hope you have as much success.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Radio Reception
As with other people's reviews, this is a great idea.Unfortunately I can't use a great idea if it can't pick up the radio station I listen to.All other radios in the house can, and Griffin's advice of plugging in headphones to act as an improved antenna only helped slightly.Also had a few minor software problems.All in all, disappointing and will be returned to Amazon.

5-0 out of 5 stars Record radio shows for your iPod
I got this as a gift for my boyfriend.I was concerned at first after reading other reviews about the antennae reception, and also compatibility with the PC.If you raise the RadioShark so it's elevated and away from other wires or the monitor, the reception is as good as any radio.The AM and FM stations came in crystal clear.Better than the stereo for AM.The RadioShark records in WAV format on the PC, and there's no preferences to import it into iTunes.But if you go into iTunes and add the WAV file from the menu, it will synch your recording into iTunes so you can copy it to your iPod.This is a nifty device for radiophiles, it's like Tivo for the radio.They also have a feature where you can have a buffer in recording live radio, so you can pause or rewind the program while you're listening to it's broadcast!Pretty neat!

5-0 out of 5 stars Reception isn't a problem
I was concerned about reception because I have a small clock radio next to my desk, and its reception isn't great. It's okay when I'm sitting at my desk, but when I move around the room, it's spotty. After reading the reviews, I took the RadioShark out of my cart and tried out Audio Hijack and checked out Podcasts. I couldn't get Audio Hijack to work, and read user reviews on several lists complaining of usability problems. So I gave up on those and decided to give RadioShark a try. I haven't had any reception problems with the RadioShark: regardless of where I am in the room, the reception on the RadioShark is fine. So, while I haven't compared it with a decent radio, it's at least better than a cheap, digital clock radio. ... Read more
