I've been using this printer for a little over a week now and was pretty surprised at some of the high-end features at such a low price point. Setup took about 30 minutes (about half of it was unpacking it...there's a lot of protective film and tape to keep it safe. The wireless connectivity is a great feature, but don't make my mistake of trying to set it up using the Printer's menu system. It's much easier to do it with the install disc (Mac & PC#. The software is deceptively powerful, though the user interface took a little getting used to. Once past the initial learning curve, I dug into some of the more advanced features and was impressed #e.g. you can scan multiple, different-sized images in one pass at different setting and it will even auto-crop them#. I didn't test the fax capability because I really rarely have a need, but the scan and print functions work well. The speed is good and the quality can be really good #if you spring for the photo-paper and setup your print settings correctly). For uncoated paper, your mileage may vary, but it's in-line with what I'd expect from an ink-jet. Though the piano black panels look sharp and modern, they tended to show fingerprints easily. You don't touch most of them after you've set it up, so it's not a big deal. If you're doing a lot of printing, the paper tray could be a little bigger, but it's adequate for my home use. I also disabled the beep noise you get when pressing the buttons because it was a bit loud for me. All in all, I was pretty surprised at what you get for this price.
