"A very capable and attractive printer but pricey"4.5 starson by randalllewis
Pros: Attractive design and compact for a printer with all of the capabilities it has. Very easy set-up. Outstanding text and color photo production.
Cons: It should be less expensive.
Summary: Rather than make snarky comments about the name of the printer like Cnet and other reviewers seem to do, let me discuss how it works. The touchscreen is very bright and adjustable the user interface is easy to navigate. You can easily remvove icons for websites you won't use and this makes the UI more responsive. The printer, combined with a modern router, connected to my home network with the simple typing of a password. Bluetooth connection was also a breeze. I appreciate the lack of a document feeder because I rarely need one and they take up lots of space and make a printer look like it belongs at work instead of my home.
The print quality is outstanding. I went from an HP printer with a 6 ink system to this 5 ink model and was concerned about the removal of the light cyan and magenta colors. There was no need to be concerned. A photo printed with my old printer and the new cannot be distinguised from one another. The black ink for text printing is a pigment ink, which means photos don't use that ink cartridge. The cartridge installation system is easy. I am pleased to finally have a printer that does two sided printing out of the box without an overpriced accessory.
There is a lot to like about this printer. Try it out and see for yourself. I took off half a star because I think the printer is a bit too expensive. I got mine for $349, which is more reasonable.
