I had gotten the 9250 printer, but had lots of problems with it, such as paper jams, ink running out to fast and finally printer head went and cost was practically as much as a new printer. This printer was a fairly new one, I only used it for about a year, so I was not going to get another Kodak, but the salesman talked me into it, and so far this one,s been great . But I haven't done any photos yet, and I'm concerned it will not be to bright, because when I download patterns to crochet, the pictures of the product are not bright, but dull and discolored. Hope this will not be the case for photos since I want to do some up. I especially like the amount of paper it holds, the ink seems to go further and it printed till there is absolutely no more ink in cartridge, if photos come out good, I'll be very happy about this purchase.
