I absolutely love this printer. I bought it when my previous printer (from a different brand) gave out. I shopped around for which style of printer had some of the most efficient, inexpensive, and highly rated ink (since we know the ink ends up costing ten times more than the printer!). The image quality is high, printing is quick and smear-free. I love the wireless capabilities so it can be linked to my laptop, desktop and tablet. The copy-quality is also great. I have not tried to use this unit with photo paper, but I imagine it would do well with photo paper as well as regular paper.
