We have had this printer for a few years now, and it has worked great - used all its functions and got great quality work. I used to have bad luck with choosing which electronics to buy, but this printer was one of my best decisions - good price, great quality, and it has continued to work fine for over 3 or 4 years now! It has two different ways for you to scan items, giving you many options with how to perfect your scans. I am not exactly technologically illiterate, but I am not a technology whiz, but this printer is very easy to use. I love the picture (actual photo) printing function of it. I tried it out with printing a photo, not with paper, but with photo sheets like you would get if took photos from a camera, and it turned out amazing! The color quality was amazing and it saved me the time to get them printed at the store. Very durable, and would definitely recommend it, but too bad it is discontinued.
