I have owned this printer for 4 years now. Sometimes it takes a while to start up, but once it starts printing it prints very quickly with a high quality. Scanning is very simple when using the MP Navigator program. You get quality pictures, the only thing is you have use the easy photo printing program that comes with the software. Some of it you have to know your way around a computer a little bit. Setting it up wirelessly is fairly simple, all you need to know is your network password, and the printer will find your wireless connection to plug in the password, and then you can use it with any of the computers on the network that you set it up with. I am very satisfied with this product, and the tech support is top-notch.

I've had this printer for 3 years. I use it mainly for printing documents wirelessly from my laptop and it has performed exceptionally well. I also scan documents wirelessly and make copies when necessary. The printer ink is not too expensive when compared to other printers in the market

So Far, So Good!
I have had this printer now for 2 years and I can honestly say it has done everything I have asked of it. It connects wireless to my network without any fanfare. Scans, copies, prints, etc. It has been reliable and was purchased at a fair prince

Stuck in Sepia
Great performing printer. All in one features are great. Everything was going well until the day I printed 2 sepia prints and from that time on it will now only print sepia photos and refuses to convert back to color.
