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. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Canon i80 - Continuing A Tradition Of Fine Printers.
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. ...

Product Description

Wireless Printing with Impressive Speed and Quality.

Less wires. More performance.
The Canon PIXMA™ iP4000R Photo Printer delivers high speed, superb quality and the ultimate freedom of wireless printing. Conforming to the IEEE 802.11g wireless (WiFi) standard, it can receive wireless transmissions within a range of up to 164 feet. Now, you can print a photo or report from your patio to your den, or from your kitchen to your home office - no wires required! Plus, with direct photo printing, just connect any PictBridge compatible digital camera or DV camcorder, and print. You can even produce edge-to-edge true borderless photos in 4 x 6, 5 x 7 and 8.5 x 11 in. sizes, with the look and feel of traditional photographs.

The ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system - four dye-based inks plus a pigment-based black ink - produces true-life photos along with laser-quality text. To achieve a high resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi, Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a high-performance 1,856-nozzle print head that ejects precise, consistent droplets as small as 2 picoliters. Need speed? You can blaze through document printing at up to 25 ppm in black and up to 17 ppm in color, and a beautiful 4" x 6" borderless photo takes only 36 seconds.

Canon Think Tank System™.
To help reduce printing costs, this unique system has five individual ink tanks that let you replace only the color that runs out, rather than an entire cartridge containing unused ink. Plus, a unique low-ink sensor alerts you when ink levels are low, so you are prepared to just drop in a new tank when needed.

Have the right paper ready.
When you go wireless, your remote printer has to have the right paper ready! A dual paper path lets you print photos and documents from another room without getting up to switch paper.

1-0 out of 5 stars good printer...but rebate declined?
I bought this with the Powershot A510 to get the $70 rebate for the 2 items together.I never got the rebate and after contacting Canon for a month they tell me they never got the box tabs.Of course I sent them with the rebate form.So now I have no boxes and no rebate.Very aggravating and disappointing!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wireless Mac and PC friendly at the same time.
This is a great printer.Aside form the print quality, which is excellent, this printer is easier to set up than anything I've had in the past.I came from 5 or 6 Epson printers in a row and will unlikely go back.Most of my Epson photo printers lasted no more than a year when problems began.

My biggest problem, however, had been setting the Epson printers up to handle both Mac and PC at the same time.I have a Mac Powerbook G4 and a Dell Inspiron 1150 (both wireless), I spent a month trying to get both printers to print wirelessly with no luck.I tried printing thru a Linksys Wireless Router as well as Apple's Airport Express...both would only work on one of my machines and not on both.With the Wireless Canon, I simply set up the Mac first with the installation CD and then moved on and set up the PC as a second user (this can be done in reverse as well).Both worked perfectly in the wireless environment the first time without any complications.

The options and features are excellent and the printing quality is outstanding....even when printing out simple website pages.I would highly recommend to anyone interested in wireless printing to spend the extra cash and choose the IP4000R over the standard IP4000....you will not be sorry....not too mention there's one less cable to kick around.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Clear Winner
I spent days online reading consumer reviews, editorials and articles on printers. It's a consumer's nightmare out there! There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of printers. It all came down to this one, and am I ever happy with the choice. All the positive reviews are right on target. I have owned Brother, HP and Epson and this one is heads above the others. In a nutshell, its quick, wireless, fantastic quality photos and has individual ink replacement to boot (no more $50 multi color cartridges). You cannot go wrong with this printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love, Love, Love It!
I wanted a printer to print pictures from my Canon digital camera, and also to replace an all-purpose text printer. When I found the Canon PIXMA ip4000R, I hoped it would be all it promised, as I could really use a wireless printer.

Wow, it's all that and more. I had sworn to never buy another Canon printer after I had an all-in-one that was unbearably slow. I mean, I'd want to go hang myself in the closet waiting for it to print! I'm so glad I decided to give Canon another try.

This printer does all Canon promises--it's also quick, quiet, paper doesn't jam, wireless connection was easy, and it comes with some great software that makes printing photos easy. I couldn't be happier.

If you need a wireless printer, don't hesitate to get the Canon PIXMA ip4000R, but if wireless isn't important, go with the 4000.

5-0 out of 5 stars Print without wires
I picked this up to replace a 3 year old Epson 785EPX and my trusty old SMC router w/ print server so that I could more easily operate wirelessly at home. Prior to the 785, I owned a workhorse Epson 640.

The Canon handles photo printing just as well as the last Epson for the most part. I don't really miss the extra 2 colors and I definitely don't miss the noise that the Epson cranked out. The Canon sits 5 feet behind my desk and if there is any ambient noise in the office at all, I have to turn around and look to see if paper is moving through the machine because it's not loud enough to hear! That's nice. The wireless is great, even though my secondary PC had trouble "finding" it. I was able to manually configure a port and move on. Both home machines use XP SP2.

I was surprised to find that the Canon also displaces my laser printer! I can't believe how sharp and fast this text prints on the multi-purpose Staples paper. You just have to see it to believe it.

Now, before I wrote this review, I wanted to see how the Canon handled my big annual print job - our photo quality Christmas cards. We send about 50 cards with the kids' picture on them. Print speeds were on par with the older Epson, but I think if I hadn't wanted borderless prints, it would have been faster. It was certainly no slower than the Epson. Anyway, all the cards printed great. The paper handling was noticeably better than the Epson as the Canon fed all sheets one at a time, no jams, no double-feeds. And the big surprise of the night - after printing all the cards with a 5.5" by 8.5" fully saturated photo on each one, the ink levels had hardly budged from full!

A couple features I haven't tried yet are the PictBridge interface for compatible digital cameras and the secondary paper tray. You can, for example, load 4x6 glossy photo paper in that extra tray and be ready to handle walk-up photos from your camera at any time. Very convenient.

The Canon is an amazing printer. Print quality is fantastic. Consumable usage appears to be ludicrously low and the ink is much cheaper than HP or Lexmark already. It's remarkably quiet and fast (especially for text). And the wireless capabilities mean I can locate and relocate it anywhere around the house as I choose. If you don't really need the wireless, save some money and get the ip4000 (instead of this ip4000R).

Great job Canon! You have converted an Epson disciple.

1-0 out of 5 stars Print Nozzles clog frequently
I've never written a review before but I figgure Epson needs a little BAD press.I Have owned a C84 and C86, both printers print very crisp images when the print heads aren't clogged.I've wasted soooo much money on ink (Cleaning the heads) that my Epson buying days are over.Don't be fooled on the low price the Ink will cost you. Even if you buy off-label ink.

1-0 out of 5 stars Prints beautifully for a year, then becomes a paperweight
I have owned two C82 printers and folks have owned two C84 printers (two of each because one of each failed during the warranty period.)Know that every 18 months or so Epson releases a new model number of the same printer, and has historically failed to address the issues of the previous version.Search the web for "clogged nozzles" and "C82 and C84" and you'll find a lot of info from users with problems (you may not find such feedback YET on the C86 because the model number is relatively new and not enough time has elapsed to allow the printheads, etc to clog up.If past experience is any indicator, it'll only be a matter of time until you experience the same issues.

As one of the previous reviewers mentioned, after a while of use, the printheads, etc clog and none of the routine diagnostics and remedies work.You are left with the option of either sending the item to a service center, or buying a new printer (if out of warranty.)Since repair costs exceed the cost of a new unit (after rebates), it is generally not worth the cost of repair.Seiko/Epson customer service won't stand behind the product after the warranty has lapsed and are very quick to point out the customer is on their own or has to foot the bill for a repair.

For those of you interested in a disposable printer (which works great for the first year or first few cartridge changes) the print quality is very good.Though the printer is VERY thirsty (it goes through a lot of ink quickly), the cost of printing per page is reported to be among the lowest going.

I suggest owners who want this short-term operational printer, I suggest you consider purchasing some extra inks (so as not to run dry unexpectedly soon.)

Unfortunately, Epson quality is no longer what it was in the 80s and 90s (it WAS the gold standard.)I may look to go back to HP to replace mine (which will be going to dump this weekend.)

Don't let the low initial purchase price fool you...this item uses the Gilette razor approach:the base item is very cheap, but the refills are where the company makes their living.

Bottom line, it's a DISPOSABLE PRINTER and is not worth the frustration.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money and buy an HP.
I purchased an Epson C84 printer when I bought my Mac G5.The printer was "free" with rebate which is the good news.Previously I've only owned HP Deskjets so I thought I understood how all inkjets behaved.Not so.

First, the Epson will run you poor due to incredible ink usage.Expect to replace the black ink cartridge every two months with typical printing.Also, the printer uses a finite amount of color ink even if you print exclusively in black and white.The printer needs to do this in order to keep the nozzles flowing.Mine haven't yet clogged but from reviews posted here and elsewhere it is only a matter of time.You'll need to replace the color cartridge about every 6 months.More frequently if you print photos.

Second, you MUST keep spare ink on hand.If you forget and let a cartidge (any color) run out the printer shuts down and you cannot print!At least with my previous experience with HPs you could "limp home" and print an off color or "streaky" black and white document.

I've owned this printer for one year and have spent about $200 on ink!The black cartridge just ran out again and it's the end for this money pit.I'll be selling it at a garage sale next week.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great print quality.....but.....
First, let me say that the Epson C86 (and C84, the earlier version) produces beautiful prints, especially considering the fact it uses pigment inks (DuraBrite) rather than the dye based inks that HP and Canon use.As a rule, dye based inks have a wider color gamut and are more vivid, particularly on glossy paper, than pigment inks, but I also have an HP deskjet 9650 (A3) Photo printer and the Epson prints are very close in quality to those from the HP, especially when I use the DuraBrite Glossy Photo paper.

Now for the bad news.First, everyone should realize when you buy an inkjet printer, you are actually buying a profit generating machine for the company that builds it.A very large percentage of the corporate profits of Epson and HP come from the sale of, you guessed it.....ink.They sell the printers at or close to cost, but make a killing on those tiny ink cartridges, and this is where the Epson will get you.Epson printers have a permanent, built-in printhead and it will sooner or later start to clog (do a Google search for Epson clogged nozzles.....you'll get over 6000 hits).When this happens, your prints will look really bad (banding and missing colors), and the "Epson solution" for this is to run cleaning cycles, which will burn through those high dollar cartridges even faster.I have had two Epson's to clogg almost completely, both within a week after the warranty had run out.Also, if the cartridge is low on ink, the printer will refuse to run a cleaning cycle until you replace the cartridge with a new one, then it will waste the ink in your new cartridge attempting to clear the nozzles.Epson cartridges have a microchip built in supposedly to monitor the ink remaining in the cartridge, but I have my suspicions that it may be responsible for the previous problems I mentioned as well as making it difficult (but not impossible) to refill the cartridges.

If you do not use your printer regularly, I would recommend that you steer clear of Epson, the clogging problem is worse if you let the printer set for long periods of time without using it.In this case I would suggest HP or Canon, my HP printers set for several months at a time and very rarely get a clogged nozzle, one cleaning cycle usually clears it up.Also, the HP printers have the printhead built into the cartridge, so every time you replace the cartridge you get a brand new printhead.However, the HP cartridges are tiny with very little ink (thanks Carly.....glad you got the ax), if you do a lot of printing you had better have some cash.

Finally, if you are having clogging problems, my solution might work for you and save some of your money from flowing into Epson's pockets.First, try to print something every day, even if it's just one small 4 x 6 photo.You want to keep the ink (all four colors) flowing in the printheads, letting the printer set will definitely cause you problems.Sooner or later, the printhead will clog and the nozzle test will show a clogged nozzle (broken lines).DO NOT run a cleaning cycle (this is exactly what Epson wants you to do.....it's money in their pocket).Instead, and there are a number of ways to do this (Google it), move the cartridge/printhead assembly to the center or left of the printer and immediately pull the plug,this will leave the area where the printhead is normally "parked" accessible.I take an eyedropper and soak the two small sponges that normally cover the printhead with Radio Shack tape head cleaner (alcohol), plug the printer back in, wait for the printhead to park itself and then cut the printer off with the switch.You want to do this as quickly as possible, don't ever leave the printhead "unparked" for any length of time.I usually let the printer set overnight, turn it on the next day and my nozzle check is perfect.....all without wasting any of that high dollar ink.Some people use Windex or distilled water, some people say not to use any of them including the alcohol.....that it will destroy the printhead, but I've had good luck with the tape head cleaner.Just remember, do this at your own risk....this will probably void your warranty if Epson finds out.If the printer is under warranty and you are unable to get the printhead nozzles restored, I would just ship it back to Epson, they'll probably send you a "refurbished" replacement.If it's out of warranty, I figure there is really nothing to lose.

The Epson C86 is basically disposable (made in Indonesia) junk.It is often cheaper to buy a new printer and use the cartridges in your old printer rather than buy replacement cartridges alone.This way you will have a backup printer when the nozzles become hopelessly clogged in your original printer.The reason I continue to use the Epson is because it produces really nice prints (when it's working) that have excellent fade resistance.I frame a lot of my artwork and photographs and don't won't them to fade after a few months.I would like to have an Epson A3 printer (2200 or the new R1800) but refuse to purchase one because of the clogging problems, it's one thing to trash an $80 printer.....quite a different matter to throw a $600 one in the dumpster.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent affordable general use printer
This is a great printer for text and graphics. It is very fast, the text looks sharp and the colors are vibrant. This printer was an upgrade from an HP and the set of cartridges for the HP was over $100 while the epsons are about $50. Also the epson cartridges last far longer. Some people have mentioned that the first set of cartridges don't last and I have found this to be entirely untrue. I still have the orginal set (although black is almost out) and I have printed AT LEAST 350 pages. The ink is incrediblely resiliant. Even when printed on standard paper outdoor flyers just do not run. This is a good printer and is made even better by the very low price. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Works great until XP SP2 walks into the room
My home office is a mixture of Mac, Windows, and wireless network environment. The installation went well on both the Mac (OS X 10.2) and one PC (XP SP1), and I have assigned a fixed IP address to it althoug dynamic IP address works well, too.

Immediately ran into trouble of using its scanning function after I've installed the driver and MFC Pro Suite onto my 2nd PC (XP SP2). The solution center on the Brother website does not offer too much help, neither they have respond to my email. And seems like there is no certified drivers available for SP2 from Brother for the moment. So now the only way to work around it is to scan the document by using the 1st PC then transfer it to the second PC which I am using most of time.

Besides this hassle, I think this machine is the best one in the market for its price and functionalities, and I will highly appreciate if someone here can share the solution of dealing the scanning trouble with XP SP2.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Machine!
After trying three different Multifunction machines, (2 HP's and 1 Epson) and returning them, I've finally found one that does what it is supposed to do.I currently have a Compaq laptop and Powerbook G4.This printer was a breeze to set up on both.The scanning feature is wonderful.All of my scans have come out true to the original.The fax works great, never had any trouble sending or receiving.The only problem I can come up with is that when you are printing color documents, they can be pretty slow.Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm in love
My desk at home was getting a bit crowded (a fax machine here, printer there, scanner, etc.) so I decided to do a bit of shopping around for a multi-function printer.I practically spent the whole day viewing the various printers Amazon has to offer and at the same time, reading the comments associated with these printers.I then came across this Multi-function unit that absolutely caught my eyes. I instantly loved the look of it and when I read the reviews, I was sure this is what I wanted.Am I glad I bought it on March 17, 2005.It stands so attractively on my desk waiting for me and set up is a breeze, not to mention meeting all my expectations with not even a gliche.I love it!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Geek Review
PRO:
* Cheap
* StandAlone Print/Scan/Fax/Copy
* Can Print/Scan/Fax/Copy over a network
* Has multimedia card reader
CON:
* Install failed to work. So I had setup everything manual.
Might need a geek to help you set this application up. One big problem I had with it is that if you are using DHCP to assign IP addresses to machines on your network. When your printer get another IP address you wont be able to print.So you have to assign it a IP address.
* Printing not that fast. Print quality is average.
* To access multimedia card you have to use FTP to connect to it.
* Photo printing on it is mediocore.

Conclusion:If you dont want spend a lot of money on multifunction printer than this is the right one for ya.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great multifunction
There are many color print/copy/scan/fax machines out there, but surprisingly few that are easily networkable. This one is. It's easy to set up the PC software on networked machines, easy to get the Brother working the network, and even easy to scan to networked computers. Easy easy easy. I was going to get an HP 7410, but CNET user reviews of the software scared me away from it. I'm happy I went with the Brother. I just wish it didn't look so much like a collection of leftover parts from Beige Plastics, Inc. ... Read more

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. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ink prices aren't too bad
As long as you buy your cartridges mail-order rather than locally, it's not too bad. Black cartridges cost me about 3.5 cents per page, and the color cartridges about 7 cents per page. By comparison, my Samsung ML6060 laser printer costs about 1.7 cents per page for toner, about half the per-page cost (which is typical for a laser printer).

We put this thing onto a factory floor because the HP flatbed feed mechanism is bullet-proof and it's fast. We did not put a laser printer there because we are feeding glossy pre-printed sheets into the thing and a laser printer would have melted the coating on the glossy sheets (this thing basically is printing serial numbers and activation keys onto jumped up warranty cards). I looked at buying one for my house, but I'm not sure that the low quality of the photo printing will be acceptable to me. I need to replace my (basically disposable) Epson C84 printer because it's started spewing black ink everywhere, and while I tried to clean out all the various sponges and wipers and such that are supposed to wipe the black print head's nose, it's still dropping globs of ink at random on my pages. I've never had any problem of that sort with an HP inkjet printer. They're solid and bulletproof. So if I can't manage to get my C84 working again, I may end up getting an HP inkjet after all, despite my reservations about their photo printing.

2-0 out of 5 stars Fast but drinks ink like a fish. Hope you have deep pockets.
This printer does a good job like all the HP Deskjets I have owned. No problems there. My other HP Deskjets would start up automatically but this one?Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Tech service was no help. My biggest complaint is the ink! The cartridges for this thing are the most expensive HP offers and there are no generics out there yet. To make matters worse it drinks ink like a fish! I think HP is trying to make too much money on the ink these days. My next printer will not be an HP.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fast
This is a good quality printer.We needed something that would spit out pages quickly, and this printer doesn't dissapoint.Also, it seems to be a well built unit.If you're wanting something that will print out text real quickly, and do some fair quality color images in your print outs, then I'd recommend this.

For those that are complaining about the photos, I have a suggestion - purchase a true photo printer.I'd recommend Canon over HP in that department.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer but Auto Power On feature missing - all 6500's
Purchased the Australian version of this printer,

Ours arrives with the base duplexer wich works well but pauses a little between flipping paper.

Super fast printing on Fast draft which is great.

Picture quality is very good with standard color cartridge compared to the old HP930 must be really great with the Photo cartridge.

Has Auto Power off feature to save power - but is Now missing the Auto ON Power feature the old HP930 had, so it lost two points because of this as the printer is not near the computer.
If you go to HP Web site on this matter be sure to scroll all the way down to see the true note regarding the Auto On Feature. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not work out of the box
I am an IT professional (BSIT) and I bought this product because it is rated #1 by Consumer Reports and I own several HP printers that I really enjoy. However, I had the same experience as several other reviewers of this product. This printer simply does not work out of the box. After trying for 1 day I gave up and called HP customer service and they diagnosed the problem as a defective chip in the printer. They wanted to replace the printer with a refurbished one; I refused and threatened to return it back to Amazon. I was placed on hold and then told that I would receive a firmware upgrade via FedEx overnight. If this upgrade does not work I will be forced to return the printer to Amazon.

Deeply disappointed,

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work Out Of The Box
I bought an HP Photosmart 375B from a major reseller.I spent hours trying to get my HP computer to recognize the 375B including uninstalling my all-in-one HP printer.I called HP Customer Service and they told me the firmware within the printer is defective.They promised to send a relpacement printer within 10 days.At 10 days, I got a call stating the 375's are backordered.At 19 days, I got my printer.Clearly labelled on the box is "REFURBISHED / REPAIRED".I called HP Customer Service and told them how if I wanted a refurb I would have bought one and can I please have a new printer since that is what I paid for and I never was able to use the defective one anyway.They said no, that is our policy.I can't return the printer to where I bought it either because the 30 day return period expired because of the HP backorder delay.I believe HP knowingly released to the market defective product to meet their sales goals and am disgusted that I am forced to settle for used when I paid for new.

5-0 out of 5 stars More fun with digital photography!
This great little printer brings the magic of Polaroid pictures to the world of digital photography. I got it shortly before Christmas and then when we had the great day with the kids and grandchildren we found that we could easily print pictures from each of three different cameras and share them on the spot. Needless to say, the grandchildren were the most 'shot'. Everyone went home to their faraway places with current pictures in hand - not in the camera! My daughter-in-law, who is heavy into scrapbooking, decided she had to have one.

I bought this printer on the basis of a comparison study in The Wall Street Journal and have been more than satisfied. The editing is easy and thorough, the color rendition is excellent and the printing easy to set up for a series of pictures and more than acceptably fast. One word of caution - the color rendition is honest and will show you if your camera is lacking - my old camera was. With a new Nikon D70, the color comes out accurate and truly vivid. I cannot wait to take this little machine to our next family gathering or to the next wedding we are invited to attend. Imagine, being able to send the couple away on their honeymoon with a nice set of wedding pictures in hand!

Buy this printer and you will never regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Portable Photo Print Shop Made EASY!
Imagine printing photos where ever you are with this Photo Printer. It comes with a power cord to use it in a powered setup and that allows you to charge the re-chargeable battery.Unplugged and with the battery installed, prepare to get over 70 photos from a single charge... about the same number of photos from the tri-color ink cartridge that comes in the box. It's compact design makes it easy to carry along with you to get the instant results from taking photos.

After looking at some of the other brands of 4 x 6 printers, I decided that this was the most flexible, easy-to-use and versatile printer among Epson's Picturemate (too bulky, very difficult to decipher screen instructions, no way to see your photos before printing, and leaky ink cartridge), Lexmark's 4 x 6 printer --- (also bulky, confusing menus on the screen and misleading "count-down" clock when it begins to print a photo)and Canon's you-need-a-television-to-see-your-photos dye-sub printer or "battery-wasting" pict-bridge connection

Not only can you see the photo you're going to print on the HP PhotoSmart 375, you can edit (without a computer)it in ways that are impossible on the others mentioned above. Zoom all over the photo image from 1.0x to5.0x ... the printer actually warns you if the image may not have enough file behind it to produce a quality photo. It allows you to print either with borders at 4 x 6 or borderless -- a single 4 x 6 or two 4 x 3 photos or four 2 x 3 photos on a single sheet of photo paper...The results are great and allow you to print your own postcards to send to the folks back home when you take this little gem on your next vacation.

I brought this HP PhotoSmart printer along with me to a friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner. The festivities were captured on my digital camera and then printed on the spot.Everyone left with fond memories of Thanksgiving 2004... no waiting for developing or sending files via email.


Need a passport photo?The PhotoSmart 375 also will print various sizes of two on a page photos.

Want your color photos in black & white or sepia? just toggle a setting and hit the print key.

It also has 6 pre-installed "borders"/ frames that you can select from 16 colors.

Buy TWO... one for you and give one to your best friend!And make sure you get the one with the rechargeable battery, 'cause you'll be taking this wherever you bring your camera. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Why wait for the family to email photos to each other when you can print them instantly? The Sony DPP-FP30 pops out professional-quality photos quickly and easily, and it's compatible with both Windows-based PCs and PictBridge digital cameras. Speeds are a little faster when you're printing from your PC--you can expect 4-by-6-inch photo in about 90 seconds, compared to approximately 120 seconds from a digital camera's memory card. It'll only take a few clicks to make your photos look their best, thanks to the included imaging optimization software--reduce red eye, improve colors, or crop the edges.

The dye-sublimation print process incorporates special laminated paper with snap-off edges, which is available in 4-by-6 and 3.5-by-5-inch sizes. This technology allows dye-sub printers to produce great looking photos even though they're rated at lower resolution than comparably priced inkjet models. The DPP-FP30 offers 8-bit color and 300 dpi resolution, producing borderless prints that are resistant to sticky fingerprints, ink smudges, and moisture. The 20-sheet paper tray stocks just enough to make sure everyone at your party gets a print to take home. Sony includes a one-year warranty covering parts and service.

Have been using this printer for the past 6 months. Absolutely no problems. I should admit that i have *not* printed photos with this, but i know the cartridges for this model are cheap.

Prints fast, good quality print.I use this often and did not have any paper jams. A good product for the price. I would say 'go for it'

4-0 out of 5 stars Paper jam . . .
Yep, I had the same problem with the error message that there was a paper jam.There was NO paper jam.It stopped feeding paper so we just bought another one.Can't for the life of me figure out what the problem is.Not worth trying to get repaired since it will probably cost $50 just for someone to look at it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for the kids to use.Very affordable ink replacement
The ink is dirt cheap.I was surprised at how many pages it can print before the ink tanks need replacement.My kids just print and print. Compact size for small desk.The photo print quality is great as well.I have used it over my epson just for the fact the epson ink is over $30 per tank. Mind you it has no paper tray, it is noisy and slow.Buy without hesitation.

3-0 out of 5 stars one thing missing....
The only thing is that it doesn't have apaper output tray!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Printer
I got this as a cheap backup to my older printer.I'm very pleased with this Canon.Set up from the box was super easy. Prints with great quality, a little noisy, but not bad.Ink cartridges are inexpensive and easy to find for this printer.I gave it four stars since it doesn't have a tray to catch your print outs and drops them on the floor instead.Overall, a very good printer. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars For WEBTV PLUS USERS!
I was printing in 1/2 an hour! Dont forget to order a cable -doesnt come with, about 30.00, just spend it, it'll save aggravation. I ordered mine also thru Amazon. NOTE: There are no instructions for WEBTV PLUS hookup, but thru your msn printer help pages,just a few steps, it'll take u 5 minutes. Also the box comes in the original package, UPS GROUND, so you'll probably want to be there to get it. 1 more thing, there are no pictures in the reference guide, but if you look in the MAC & WINDOW flyer that it comes with you'll know where to put things, for those of us that aren't printer savvy.THANKS AMAZON!

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. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Choice For 45/78 Cartridge Users
I used an inexpensive HP PhotoSmart printer for 2 years. The print quality was good, but the feed mechanism drove me crazy with frequent paper misfeeds (using HP paper!!!). The support software also contantly gave warnings about a lost connection to the printer (actually to the built-in memory stick reader). There were so many buttons on the housing that I had to study them carefully with a flashlight whenever the printer needed service. It turns out that I had purchased the wrong printer for my needs. The Photosmart was a fancy toy for digital photo enthusiasts. What I needed was a small business-grade printer.

During that period, I built up an investiment in 45/78 cartridges. There is a local service here in North Seattle which refills the cartridges for about $15. They do a good job.

I finally decided to purchase a new printer. The HP 6122 offers three things that I really, really needed:
1.Reliability.
2.Simplicity.
3.Uses the same 45/78 cartridges.

The 6122 cost a lot more than the Photosmart, and it has fewer "cool features." The trick is that the 6122 has everything I actually need---and it works reliably.

As a bonus, the 6122 gives me double-sided printing. When I use this feature with draft quality printing and inexpensive paper, I have a very cost-effective printer.For resumes and important correspondence, I turn up the print quality, switch to single-sided printing and use paper with rag content. The result is equal to that of a laser printer.

There are only three buttons on the housing, and they are easy to see and understand. This printer is not a toy. It prints. That is all it does, and it does that very well.

The HP Preview is included. This is an awesome utility that saves me gallons of ink and tons of paper each year. HP should win a Nobel award or something for that little utility.

THe 6122 is ideal for professionals/small offices needing a simple printer that is very reliable---without spending a forturne. It is well-built, solid and compact.

I am very pleased with the HP 6122.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent printer!
I've had this printer for about 1 1/2 years, having switched to HP after owning an Epson and a Lexmark, with which I was sort of dissapointed. The Lexmark, although pretty advanced for its time (about 4 years ago), had really bad print quality, even at high resolution settings. The Epson Stylus Color 680 had BIG paper feeder problems and I spent many minutes trying to reprint stuff that got caught in the feeder. Anyway, after I unpacked this printer, I was shocked by its extreme weight. This is a good thing, making it a sturdy and solid printing device. The extra piece for double sided printing is a must-have and I've never taken it out. I've printed everything there is to print, from cd labels to high quality photos for presentations, etc, and I've never had any trouble with it. The resolution settings are perfect for their purpose and at "Draft" setting, this printer will slice you in half if you're not careful. The software is extremely easy to install and the packaging is flawless. I recommend it wholeheartedly, great printer for its price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love the workhorse
I researched many printers after my beloved old HP died with a
death scream ... I really liked the reviewer who compared the
6122 to a Clydesdale - that just tipped the scales.I've now
had this printer for several months - it's a great piece of
machinery, worth every penny.Yes, it's a little noisy, but
that's how any workhorse would be.The quality is excellent in
my opinion, whether I'm printing photos or just an everyday
printing job. I'm very happy with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING
I got this printer in December but then in January IT STOPPED WORKING! I was bummed because I was so happy with it. I tried to get it to work everyday for about a week or two then I gave up. Now in April I decided to get another one, but before I did I wanted to see if it would work one last time and guess what?! It came to life!!!! It healed itself!!! I have no idea how?! I am so happy with it!!!!!!! It's the best thing ever!!!! NO NEED FOR THE COMPUTER!!!! But if you want to edit the pictures so they come out looking great then it comes with a stellar program!!! I JUST LOVE IT!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Little Printer
Printer has proven to be EXCELLENT as far as I have used it.Won it in a contest, so I'm not complaining. ;)

I have printed out some pictures and find the quality to be EXCELLENT.The speed of printing is also fast and the printer prints BORDERLESS photos (which is a handy feature).

As with any product there are a few cons.
1) Printer is a PHOTO printer.That means you won't be printing out an 8X10s; you can only print 4X6 photos (but I'm expecting you know this already..)

2)Cable to hook to PC is *not* included.If you want to transfer pictures from your computer, don't expect to get a cable with your printer.The cable is sold separately.However, a flash/USB drive will work perfectly.. Just plug the USB drive into your computer, stick the pictures on it, then plug the USB drive into your printer.

---------
The printer can recognize MANY different formats, SD cards, USB input devices (photo iPod, flash drive, etc..)Which is very convenient.It can also view the pictures straight from your camera (make sure it's compatible, most are..)

If you're looking to just print photos and want a light-weight and portable printer, this is the item for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product
I got an hp325 for Christmas. I took pictures of the family opening presents with my Canon A70 and printed them out before breakfast. Quality is great. Took camera and printer to a meeting, took pictures and printed them. Everybody was amazed at the quality and very idea that I could print pictures right at the table. Haven't tried installing in computer. Why bother? I can download from card to computer with card reader. Love the portability. Getting our son one for his birthday.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome photo lab for $149
I highly recommend this printer. I did plenty of research and came to the conclusion that this printer offers the best features for the price. The other HP model (HP 375) offers a photo preview screen but costs more. I saw a retail store rep print the same image on HP and Epson printers and the HP printers usually were faster with equal or better photo quality.My family has used this printer for a month now and it is so much fun. Great job HP!

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at first but HP resolved the issue
I was frustrated when I first bought the printer.It creates great pictures from my memory card but it would not install on my computer.After reading someone's previous review I thought I should just return it.I contacted HP and one of the customer service reps told me that a certain batch of those printers have a defect that will not allow it to be installed on your computer.I had received advice from other HP reps and it did not work. The only solution was to exchange the printer through Hewlett Packard not the store I bought it from. HP sent me another printer and my computer was able to recognize that printer.Now I can print from my computer and my memory card. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
I like HP products. I have the hP Photosmart 7150 and it is a workhorse.I have had nothing but trouble with the teh Deskjet 6840.It is supposed to be wirelessly available.Not.I have it wired directly and it constantly loses communication with my computer, which I can't figure out. I waste more paper because it stops in the middle of everything I try to print. I try unplugging, rebooting, nothing works.I wanted to return it but waited too long with Amazon to return this piece of junk.

5-0 out of 5 stars no problems
I've had my Deskjet 6840 for a couple of weeks and so far no problems. Getting a reliable hookup to the Linksys Wireless G router took some work because of the security settings. This was solved by manually inputting the IP address. The HP installation software on the disk is not without bugs; it wouldn't autostart after my first attempt at installation. Not a big deal. The fast draft mode is great.

This unit replaces an HP 890c that was telling me to change out the service module at an estimated cost of $200+...so getting a new, faster and wireless printer for about 2/3 of that amount is good.

If you are a little savvy with wireless, it seems to be a fine unit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer
I have owned two other HP printers - an old HP LaserJet 5 and a DeskJet 932 inkjet.This printer is far and away better than either were at their time.B/W text is crisp and clear, not too much experience with color yet.Setup couldn't have been easier - printer joined my wireless network like a champ.I can't exagerate how nice it is to tuck this printer away and print documents while working anywhere in the house.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fast and Friendly Printer
I just got my new HP 6840 last week and have great things to say about it.
First of all, the wireless setup using XP Home was flawless. I had the printer installed and configured on a 128-bit WEP in just a few minutes. I am still working on getting a W2000 Laptop to print, but that's probably a driver issue that I have not solved. I have even printed from my iPAQ over the air! Cool!
The WiFi interface is very fast!
The color reproduction is extremely good. I have been printing on glossy inkjet paper and the photos come out looking perfect every time.
One added plus, the paper feed is from a tray on the bottom, unlike the Epson C80 that I replaced. That makes for a very low profile printer that easily fits on my desk where the C80 would not.
Ink cartridges are easy to change, and cost is comparable to the Epson carts. I would have preferred to have a separate cart for each color, but can overlook that single issue considering the quality of the prints I am getting.
I highly recommend this printer. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Very dissapointed
The HP Photosmart 8750 printer seems to be very well made with some nice features. However my color "test" photos were very disappointing. Using HP Premium Plus photo paper and the printer set to "best quality" a band of lighter color would appear across the printout spoiling the print. The banding runs parallel to the print head path and starts around the last inch of the print being printed. The band varies in width somewhat but is typically .125" to .50" wide.I increased the print quality to the "MAX DPI" setting and even more banding appeared in the print. I then tried printing directly from a compact flash card pluged directly into the card slot using the same image and the print still had visible banding. I then exchanged the printer for another 8750 yesterday with no luck as I still had banding issues. The print quality would be excellent except for the banding that keeps appearing. I am returning the printer for a refund. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars WHERE'S THE CABLE???!!!
Ok, perhaps I've been out of it for too long, but since when did they stop including the printer cable with printers?I still don't have the correct cable.I purchased my RX620 in a store and was blown away by the print quality of the store's demo.However the salesman let me purchase it without mentioning I'd need a cable.He should have told me since I had originally enlisted his aid in getting a cable for my old printer and decided on a new printer instead, "cause I'll get the printer AND a cable!"

Then I went back for a cable.They told me to purchase the wrong one.When I got home and found out it was the wrong cable, I tried to determine what USB cable I needed for this thing.(I didn't know there were more than one type of USB cable.)There is NO printed documentation that comes with this printer that specifies what type of USB cable is needed.Thought Amazon would list it in the accessories section, but wrong again!

Am I ever going to be able to print from my computer with this?!

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute BEST bang for the buck!!
Before I start, I just want to emphasize that I have been in the IT industry for about 15 years and consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable about PC and PC peripherals. This DOESNT mean that I'm infallible, just simply that I know what to look for in a device. Now onto the review...

It was time to replace my tired HP Photosmart 7260, although still working and doing a great job, I may add, I wanted something, well.... different. So, I decided to delve into the AIO(All In One) category. I initally started with an open box HP 2355 from Sears and was initally pleased as punch. Decent print speeds, wonderful photo and text output and an awe-inspiring design. However my happiness was short-lived. Apparently there was a reason it was an "open box" and priced so cheap. It was defective. Continuous banding, horrible color output after sitting a few hours, etc. So, much to my dismay I took it back and decided to stick with my PS 7260 until I could afford a high-end AIO. Well the time came to purchase and I shopped around, read numerous reviews and finally picked up an Epson AIO cx6600. For those of you who havent tried this printer, its MORE than worth the money!!! Excellent speed, nice look and good print quality. All out of a 4 ink tank system! However, I just could not settle with this device(Nothing really wrong with this AIO except that I could not settle for the 4 color pigmanet-based print engine) and decided to return the 6600 in favor of the 6 color, dye-based RX620. I'm glad I did.Heres why:

1.) Print speeds seem to be on par with the cx6600 (Which has decently high ratings for speed).
2.) Photo quality is among the best I have EVER seen. This AIO is on par with the high dollar, 8 color dedicated photo printers. With Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper and a high-resolution image(i.e 4-5 MP high-end camera), you almost have to have a microscope to detect ANY dithering or banding. I have printed everything from 4x6 prints up to 8.5x11 and continue to be blown away by the quality. And I have a VERY keen eye for imperfections!!!
3.) Contrary to some reviews, text DOES appear sharp and crisp. Print speeds arent super-fast, but will suffice for most applications.
4.) Copy and scan quality are among the best Ive seen from an AIO. This is probably attributed to the excellent print engine and over the top scanner. I copied an older film photo on the photo setting(NOT best photo) and could not believe my eyes. The printer has the ability to restore old photos and I'm here to tell you...IT WORKS!! An adapter is included to scan negatives and slides as well, which I have not had a chance to play with as of yet.
5.) Setup and operation are a breeze! Even printing sans computer could not be easier. The full-color LCD is very informative and easy to use!
6.) Bonus features! You can even scan directly to a memory card, or backup to a Jump Drive/CD-RW directly connected to the printer!!
7.) Its relatively quiet! Much quieter than most of the HP's that I have used.

Everyone complains about the lack of a fax, but I do NOT see this as a fault! It is designed to be a home-based photo center. You CAN scan to fax with the included software, however and I found it to work as advertised.

CONS:
All in all, I have a hard time finding faults in this AIO and I'm REALLY looking. But there are a few irritations(Not really faults)
1.) The USB cable is attached to the machine from INSIDE the lid. You have to raise the lid to install the cable, which is fed to the back via a path notched out. Kind of crazy, but not a big problem.
2.) Epson thought it to be a good idea to put a product sticker on the top, which almost covers the entire lid. This includes the shiny black oval/oblong area that gives the RX620 a handsome look. When the sticker is removed, residue is left on the shiny part and is ridiculously difficult to remove. Solvents that are effective in removing the residue, cause swirl marks on the surface. Again an irritation, but does not take away from the operation. ... Read more

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. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

1-0 out of 5 stars The decline of HP
Having owned several HP printers over many years, I have noticed a steady and unforgivable decline in the quality of this company's printers with each successive model.The final straw for me is the 7960, by far the worst HP printer I have owned.While producing acceptable prints under most conditions, this printer's liabilities far outweigh its benefits.The workmanship of the unit itself is the flimsiest and most disappointing I have encountered.And the printer's lack of consistent compatibility with the two separate computers I have used it with is both annoying and inexcusable for a supposedly renowned printer company.Bad drivers have caused numerous problems and the driver updates usually make the situation only marginally better.Plus the printer's general overuse of ink and poor paper and envelope handling make the overall experience of owning one distinctly unappealing.This is my last HP printer - I'll be switching to Epson.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Printer
I really love this printer.I have had it for almost a year now.It does a beautiful job on color 8x10's and prints fantastic black and white photos.Switching to the 56 cartridge makes it an excellent text printer as well.(It ships with all 4 cartridges). The 4x6 prints look much better than the ones from a photo shop or from the Kodak kiosk at Best Buy.

Both the Epson and Canon 8 color printers will not print true black and white photos. They have a pink, salmon or pale blue cast.This is also true of their 6 color printers.This printer is also substantially less expensive than Epson and Canon 8-color printers ($399 and $349 respectively).So whether you need or want the color LCD or card reader is moot.This printer is between a $120 and $170 less than its Epson and Canon competitors.Those printers also will not print regular text in sharp, clear, 1200x1200 dpi pigment based resolution.The text prints from their photo printers tend to have a dark grey tone, rather than crisp black because they use dye based, rather than pigment based black ink for text printing.Switching cartridges with the HP 7960 allows you to have the best ink type for your print job.

Finally, if you are looking at a Canon, be careful with the ink tanks.I have a friend who wasn't paying close attention and mixed up the color tanks and ended up sending the wrong color through the print head.She had to take out the print head and wash it for quite awhile in tap water.Then she had to prime (charge) all of the tanks several times to get the water out of the system.What a hassle.There are no keys or notches to prevent you from making this mistake on a Canon.The Epson tanks are keyed so this mistake can't be made and it doesn't matter with an HP. You can't ruin the print heads with HP because they are built into the ink tank.

No printer on the market is as versatile and easy to use.No printer on the market can do so many different things well.When I looked at the reviews in Consumers Reports there was not a big difference in print costs and there didn't seem to be a big savings because of individual ink tanks.Finally, the pictures will last longer.Canon only claims 25 years for framed pictures, while HP claims more than 70 years.Consumers Reports also says that Epson and HP are more fade resistant than Canon.

Color shading and tones is a personal thing.I suggest you take a picture you like with skin tones and shades down to a computer store and print out a 4x6 on each printer and see which one you like the best.After all what you like is the most important thing.All of the sample prints from all of the manufacturers are obviously skewed to present their features and benefits in the best light possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars cannot find a flaw yet
I received this printer last year as a holiday gift and I have not found a flaw yet......it prints very crisp photos that rival any camera store product, it is amazingly easy to use, has lots of editing capabilites, easy to navigate functions, accepts all kinds of digital cards (which is GREAT since you don't have to buy a different printer if you change digital cameras) and prints up to 10 x 12 photos.This printer is well worth the price; in fact, I'd be willing to pay more so it's a bargain.This printer gets heavy usuage (it goes thru at least one ink cartridge change per 75 photos) and I have two toddlers who have - not on my watch - "played" with it and it still works like a dream.Does it get any better than this?!?I think not. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Value
Prints excellent pictures for the value.I use it exclusively for pictures, not text, so I don't switch ink, although it is easy to do.In my camparison this is less costly then 4x6 only printers, and I print other photo sizes frequently.Check consumer magazine ratings and you will find this printer rates high on the list.You'll find the best price is here also.Be careful; default print quality is set to 'best' every session which uses ink fast...

2-0 out of 5 stars Great pictures, when it will accept the cartridges
The picture print quality is fantastic on this printer. HOWEVER, I am on the fifth time that I use the photo ink cartridge a few times and then the printer says it has failed. At roughly $30 a piece, this gets VERY costly! The photo store only charges 29 cents a print. I am learning that this is a much better deal! Very disappointing...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great all-purpose printer!
This is an outstanding printer.Aside from doing an excellent job with photos, it also functions extremely well as an all-purpose printer, running the gamut from high-quality photo printing to everyday correspondence and web page printing.

Right after I bought this, my 5-year old laser died, so I started using the 7760 as a temporary all-purpose printer.I was so impressed, I decided against buying another laser printer.The "fast draft mode" provides nice quality for everyday document and web page printing; very sharp for black & white, but just a bit lighter than normal mode, and is far better than draft mode on Epsons.There is also a "Fast Normal" mode that looks near perfect, yet provides some ink savings.Both modes print text and graphics far more quickly than earlier models, narrowing the gap against laser printers dramatically.Like all good-quality photo printers, it runs through ink quickly at the highest photo settings.But for everyday use in "Fast Draft" and "Fast Normal" modes, I'm satisfied with the ink economy.

I have had this printer for 10 months, use nearly everyday, and have never experienced any of the problems noted by other reviewers.I use only with a Dell desktop PC and IBM Thinkpad, so cannot speak to its viability as a standalone photo printer.I love having only one printer, as I never thought that a single printer could run the gamut from high quality photos to economical everyday use---let alone at this price.I've recommended this printer to others time and again, and I'd buy it again in a minute.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent printer and I bought it refurbished for $93!
I always buy refurbished simply because you know the refurbished ones will work!

I have no qualms about this printer, ok maybe a tiny one.

I would rather print a 4x6 picture on a 4x6 paper, I have no idea where to put it. There is a spot that looks like where the 4x6 paper would go into but when I put it in nothing happens, so I resort to putting the 8x10 paper in the tray (where it's supposed to go) and I waste my paper. I try sticking the 4x6 into the tray where the 8x10 goes, but I really have to stick my fingers all the way down so it can reach the mouth, and it still won't go.

I love this printer it's great,looks cool, and does a good job.
I just have to figure out this 4x6 slot that looks like a 4x6 paper would go.

1-0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't have purchased if I would have had all the facts
I purchased this printer for my mother.She doesn't own a computer and would always have either myself or a sibling print her pictures for her.So I thought this was a great idea since it has 2 USB ports and takes 4 different memory cards.Well what you are not told is that the USB ports are only for HP products and they do not sell an adaptor or anything else so that this product can be used with another type of camera.We have a Sony camera where the pictures are burnt on to a cd, so that is why we were looking for a printer that you can use a USB cable for. I emailed HP support and they told me to hook it up to a computer and then print or they suggested several HP camera's we could purchase to use the USB ports.I GIVE THIS LESS THAN A STAR.

The product did print one nice picture off of a memory card but really isn't serving it's purpose for my mother. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice printer but no support from Sony
Nice quality prints and good features.Paper and ribbons are expensive and can be hard to find.Shipped drivers have problems with some usb cards, no newer drivers are available.In fact, there are NO drivers available for download from Sony's web site.They just don't seem to have any support online for this printer, period.

4-0 out of 5 stars So farSo good
I've had this printer for about 6 weeks.I do think it's strange that it doesn't come with ink and paper but I was warned before I bought it.I do find the prink packs a little hard to find and too pricy on sony's website but the printer itself is wonderful and fairly simple.I love the quality of the photos, I think they're comparable to other regular 1 hour photo shops.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay as far away from this as you can
After struggling with the reliability of several Epson InkJet printers, I decided it was worth investing in what I thought was the high-end picture printer- the Sony dye-sub.After a couple weeks it wouldn't print and had to go back to Sony for a 6 week repair job.Now it works, but the print quality is horrible.The pictures are dull and the color is horrible.Background scenese are just blobs of color and there is no contrast whatsoever.If have since bought a Canon i560, which I intended to just use for day to day document printing.But I've compared the same picture coming from both and it is night and day -- the bubble jet that costs less and does more functions prints 2-3 times better.The pictures are sharp, the contrast is great, and the dullness does not exist.I'd suggest staying as far away from this Sony as possible -- it's a rip off and you can do MUCH better with a good Inkjet or Bubblejet.

4-0 out of 5 stars First impressions for the Sony DPP-EX50
One of the first things I noticed upon opening up and unpacking the box, was that Sony does NOT include any ink (ribbon) or paper for this printer in the box.Not even one sheet.So, to avoid disappointment about not being able to immediately start using the printer, make sure you buy one of the ink/paper packages too.

The included software is "so-so".Sony's included photo application is rough, and I fell into fatal errors with it quite easily.Their photo application works directly with the printer, bypassing Window's printer drivers, which brings me to my next software comment.

It also includes a printer driver for Windows that allows other applications, presumably for photos, to print using the DPP-EX50.However, while it worked, it had a little annoying problem where the image was slightly off centered.This results in "borderless" prints actually getting a thin white border on the bottom and right sides.I found no way around this bug, including trying to manual re-size the image slightly larger, and trying to move it slightly down/right.

While the DPP-EX50 prints absolutely wonderful pictures, I am patiently waiting for Sony to release some software fixes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Portable Printer
If you're going to a wedding or birthday party and want to leave some prints for the celebrants, the EX50 is a great toy to have.You can print up to 4x6 with very high quality on smudge-free paper - and for its intended use, that's important.You can print directly from Memory Stick or Compact Flash, or you can strap it to your laptop and work that way.You can use the video out jack to view the images on a TV.All this in a compact little package for about $180 - not cheap but this is a good quality tool. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRINTER! POOR REPAIR SERVICE!
I bought the printer 6 months ago and after a few months of great pictures there was a white line that developed on the
pictures. I had a 1 year warranty to get it repaired and so I sent it to the Olympus Repair Service via mail in great condition. It only had an internal problem. A few weeks later
the repair center sent me a letter stating that the product's mode dial was broken off, the front CVR cracked, the front door cracked, back cover broken, dented in back. That was completely wrong! It was in fair condtion when the printer was sent there to NY to have it repaired. I rate their service zero stars! I recommend not to buy this product. It was a simple repair that turned into a nightmare. It costed $230.00 to get it repaired. I spent $299.99 for that printer. The company Olympus is a rip-off!
I wouldn't buy there products! 1 year warranty! That is so untrue!


4-0 out of 5 stars Great photo quality!!
I was worried about spending 500.00 for a printer, which I knew nothing about, but after reading reviews on Google.com I felt comfortable about doing it. The quality comes out great. You can't go wrong with getting this printer. One thing I did notice, it left a scratch on my prints, when I printed 4X6 images. I have not had a chance to see if it was a one time fluke or what. I'm waiting for more paper to arrive. ... Read more
