First off, I must disclose that my particular printer was bought for a ridiculously low price in refurbished condition. No matter, really; to my eyes it is and always was brand new in appearance, and has performed as if just so. It is sleek and stylish, if a tad bulky, but seems very well-built. in fact, it manages to provide enough torque to jerk my entire computer desk side to side just a bit as it preps & prints. BEEFY! My only complaint seems to be a common one with many printer manufacturers: this thing burns up the ink, (all 6 cartridges) and the ink in turn burns up the contents of my wallet. As anyone with this dilemma knows, it pays to be resourceful and research alternatives to 'recommended' ink brands & vendors. The functions I have used the most so far are as follows, with grades: - Scanning - Grade A - The software included is swift, highly user-friendly and does not noticeably hog the resources of my tired, 7 year old PC. The digital results have yet to let me down. - Printing documents - Grade A - Any and all color and text documents have been error-free 100% of the time, and after over a year I have yet to witness a paper jam or 'multiple sheet-feed'. Other functions I've used sporadically are the memory card reader and DVD/ CD printing insert. No complaints on either front, but an upcoming production run of CDRs will really put this baby to the test. Which reminds me... I need to go shop for some pirate ink cartridges! *Until next time, YAR! *If this place allows it, I'll be back with a more extensive follow up review of these remaining functions, including the USB Flash Reader.
