Opinions on the specs of this printer, please.

Any of you have this or know anything about it? It has pretty good reviews. I'm looking for something good with pictures.

This weblink gives out a bad review:

Do you want an all in one type printer or just a regular printer like this one:

okay, here's one that looks even better. At CC, it is $142 and the belkin is $30. I'm assuming that it's the right cable, since it is showing as a must buy with the same printer at CC.

If you're just wanting to print photos and text, why not go with an Epson. They're inexpensive, reliable, easy install (plug and play with my macs - probably need to install drivers on pcs), generic ink cartridges are cheap (see ebay) and they print great photos!

Boy..printers are getting so inexpensive it's almost cheaper to buy a new one everytime you run out of ink instead of buying the new ink!

I have been looking for a new printer that will include a copy machine, a scanner and whatever else comes with it.

I have a old Hewlett Packard DeskJet 500 which only prints in black and white. I like it very much because it has a large B&W Ink Cardridge.

I have another printer on top of it which is a Hewlett Packard Deskjet 832C. It is supposed to print in color and black and white. When it was new the color copies came out great and then they started getting lighter and lighter. I finally found a way to set it for B&W and when I printed out something last week the copy looked like it needed a B&W cartridge.

I have been doing a lot of research on the different type of printers and I came across one at the I Mac store. It was a HP and did everything I wanter but I didn't take the measurements with me to see if it would fit next to my computer.

I have one of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16828104393

HP 5610

It's and all-in-one which is about $120 at Newegg with free shipping. I like it because it has a flat bed which allows it to be used as a flat bed scanner in addition to the other functions. If you want to copy a drivers license or scan some other small document it is much more convenient.

They are both ink jet printers so the cost of ink is a major consideration, but it has performed well in my restaurant back office. The staff often print photos of different dishes and each other for morale purposes and the photos are quite nice even on bond paper.

I bought ours at Costco.
