I have used this Hewlett Packard photosmart printer for about 3 years. I am very happy with my photo printer. I usually print 4 x 5 photos, but occassionaly print a larger photo including 5 x 7 and 8 x 10. The printer takes 3 ink cartridges which are quite expensive. The cost of the ink is the only drawback of this printer. The quality of the prints in quite nice. I typically use the HP photo paper as well, but have on occassion used other photo paper and the printer works well with all types of photo paper. We also use this printer as our family printer for all regular paper printing. The setup was easy and worked basically right out of the box, just follow the directions for setup and installation. We have been using this printer daily for several years now and have not had any maintenance issues, it continues to work as advertised. I would reccomend this to a friend as I have found that it is reliable and good quality.
