Pros Very simple setup, upand running on wireless network in minutes
Cons Photo print quality could be better.
Summary Overall this is an excellent printer. It was very easy to setup and the wireless capability is a god send. I am a casual point and shoot picture person so the photo capabilities are decent for me. If you are serious about your photos this may not be the printer for you. However, it is great as a home office piece offering FAX, copy and scan a scan feature that works seamlessly over my wireless network. I also purchased the second paper try to keep 4X6 photo paper and 8 1/2X11 paper loaded at the same time. This makes printing photos as simple as switching the black ink cartridge with a photo ink cartridge.
Pros nice design and layout of features
reliable machine (since 2007)
good print quality on paper
Cons ink indicator is way off Tell you you are out of ink at least 30 pages before you are.
network and wireless setup are not as easy for most users
Summary It's been a great printer for me. Once the low ink indicator comes on, monitor your print output, and change the cartridge when you visibly see print issues. So go by what the computer tells you.
Pros All in one menu, shortcut. Idiot-proof. Easy wireless set up.
Cons INK sucks. Doesn't matter if you replace will regular Dell Ink or a refill. I get about 2 pages out of each. No joke. I use this mostly as scanner. I use my old HP printer..
Summary Do not buy. You will spend the purchase amount in ink alone.
Pros Nice black and white.
Cons Lack color tones, sorta dull not sharp at I thought it would be.
Summary After the one year warrenty expired so did the printer. The printer is now stuck in "remove paper from inside and press check mark." It will not fax or scan. My usage was small. I am still working with the original black color cartridges.

Pros Nice to have a scanner that doesn't take up extra space.
Cons When you load the ink, there's an indicator telling you how many pages worth of printing you have left. Whenever you print one page, the indicator goes down by 40 or 50 pages. Awesome.
