I got this printer many years ago because it would print 8 1/2 x 14, do photos, scans. I would purchase it again in a heartbeat. Simple to use and you don't have to be an advance tech nerd to use it. If you are a novice to computer/printers - read, practice and have patience ~ It is not that difficult to master. Used Win XP and not all features work in Win 7 unless set for xp. Performance Print very well from computer or the top of printer. There were no problems installing software. Ease of using the software increased when skill increased using the printer for printing and scanning. You can scan for B & W, Photo, etc. Copy Quality you can adjust the the quality of the printing on the printer or thru the computer program.. I used fast draft all the time until print quality went down then I adjust the quality. Ink/Paper Use Ink cartridges last a long time if you use fast draft copy. Can print envelopes also. Ease of Use Will do back to back printing if selected but you do have to turn the pages around to print the back side but it will tell you to do that on the computer screen. Very easy to use. Printer buttons are well labeled. Printer cartridges are easy to replace (take out/put in) Durability Great, I took this printer on a road trip to a family reunion along with my laptop to scan family photos in a park pavilion. use a power cord to have additional plug-ins. Design It uses same power cords that monitors use. USB cord end that fits into printer just be careful inserting it and taking it out. If something gets broken there you will not be able to print/scan from your computer.
