i have ha this printer for about six years. It was not too expensive but thats just because they want you to buy their ink. The good think about their ink is that it uses four different cartridges so you only have to switch the color that is out. It has many options and lets you do everything other than fax. It takes a minute to turn on and is not the fatest at printing. I wouldn't really reccomend it for printing pictures from your camera because I always do that at a store. We have had a few problems over the six years with it but it works fine now. However now there are much better printers that have differnet features and this model is discontiued. That is why I am giving the Epson Stylus CX7800 4 Stars.
