This multifunction machine printing is superb!

on 10/22/2009

I am very pleased with the print quality of this machine. The color is vibrant. I am also happy that I can make 800 color copies before I have to replace the cartridge. I haven't used the fax nor scanner yet.

Love this printer

by A customer on 12/18/2010

Not exactly a printer for printing photos,the yellow and magenta warnings came on after printing about 60 photos, but still a great printer. I just wish ink was cheaper since replacing the ink costs as much as a new printer. Great printer for the price although.
