Amazon.com Product Description

This superior 36-bit flatbed scanner has two scanning beds, one for photos and one for film, and uses Microtek's own patented Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology for incredibly sharp transparency scanning. With EDIT, there is no glass between the scanning lens, film, or light source, eliminating distortion and Newton rings, which can occur with traditional transparency adapters.

The ArtixScan 2500f combines the speed of FireWire and SCSI with the flexibility of dual-media, dual-lens scanning. This high-performance scanner is versatile enough to scan full-bed reflective or transparent artwork at up to 1,250 dpi, or up to 2,500 dpi in a 4-inch-wide band running the length of both scan beds. SnapTrans film templates are included for scanning a wide variety of film, including 35mm slide, 35mm filmstrip, 4-by-5-inch, and 6-by-9-centimeter. An 8-by-10-inch glass tray is also included as a universal film holder to scan non-standard-sized film.

The comprehensive software package includes SilverFast Ai 6.0 with dust and scratch removal and Genuine Fractals Print Pro 2.5. Microtek provides a one-year limited warranty that covers parts and service. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing short of a drum scanner beats it
When you are going to spend a lot of money on a large purchase like this you like to shop around and know that you are getting everything for your dollar. I found out that nothing short of a drum scanner is going to come close to the optics in this scanner. I feel like it is the Mercedes of scanners, with features like anti-vibration and other features that you don't really know exactly when they do but know that they are contributing to the operation of the scanner. Since we have received the scanner we have been very pleased. I called up technical support to get the run down on how to operate the scanner and a very nice gentlemen walked me through the operation and use of the scanner. This is very important as customer service should be of critical importance, for when you buy a product you like to know that there is someone there for you if you do need help. Overall 10/10 as we speak. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

For high-end users, the GT-30000 offers more quality and features than nearly any other consumer-level scanner on the market. The color flatbed is designed for high-volume office use, and it does the job admirably. An optical resolution of 600 x 1,200 dpi (9,600 x 9,600 interpolated), 36-bit color depth, and an array of embedded image processing features result in crisp, clean images, ideal for professional uses.

The GT-30000's real enticement however, is convenience. A 100-page auto-document feeder (with auto-document sizing) is capable of a very impressive 30 pages per minute and even supports duplex scanning. Networking doesn't get much easier, as the GT-30000 is networkable right out of the box. Both Twain and Isis drivers are provided for compatibility with a wide variety of scanning environments, while SCSI (and optional FireWire) connectivity ensures suitably fast transfer times.

While distinctly pricey, the GT-30000 offers high-end scanning and convenience that's hard to beat. It also comes backed with a one-year extendable warranty. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

One of the slimmest scanners on the market, the Canon LiDE 50 measures less than two inches high and includes a desktop stand for nearly invisible vertical storage. This doesn't mean it can't handle your originals--thanks to the Z-lid design, the LiDE 50 can accommodate items up to an inch thick while keeping them totally flat for absolutely impeccable scans.

48-bit color and a 16-bit grayscale provide rich tones and clear contrasts; the 1,200 x 2,400 optical resolution (9,600 x 9,600 dpi interpolated) handles the rest with clean, crisp detail. USB 2.0 interface means there's a single cord that supplies both power and connection, as well as a speedy transfer of data.

Bundled with the scanner is an impressive array of software for both Windows and Macintosh OS systems that will allow you to convert, smooth, and organize your images in a variety of ways. Perfect for home use, the Canon LiDE 50 is backed by a one-year warranty with Instant Exchange service.

4-0 out of 5 stars Buy Photoshop Elements 2.0 and get LiDE 50 scanner free
This scanner comes with a fully functioning Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 CD and the scanner is less costly than the software alone.

Regarding the scanner itself, I purchased the scanner to digitize many photographs and documents. The image quality seems to be good. The scanner is powered by the USB connection so there is no external power cord. The speed isn't great but its sufficient for my needs.

The scanner has a really great feature called multiscan which is its strongest and weakest feature. This allows you to put more than one photo in the scanner and the scanner scans in each photo into a separate JPG file. When this works it is awesome. Unfortunately about 25% of the time it can't find the edges of the photos correctly and the result is that you have to scan the photos separately.

I also like the ability of being able to scan to PDF for documents.

2-0 out of 5 stars Does NOT work at 1200dpi
The LiDE 50 will not scan at 1200dpi. I'm running a 1Ghz Athlon with 256MB of RAM and plenty of system resources in Windows 2000 Professional. The scans just "hang" at 20% or 90% and never finish. Also, parts in the internal mechanism of the scanner I recieved appear to have minor corrosion on them. Whether it is this or a compatibility problem that is the cause of the scanning problems I will never know because there is no way I'm wasting my time with another unit.

2-0 out of 5 stars LiDE 50 on Linux a no go
If you plan to use the Canon CanoScan LiDE 50 on Linux, you're currently out of luck. Of the LiDE scanners, the Sane (Scanner Access Now Easy - http://www.sane-project.org/) project only supports the LiDE 20 and 30. That's why only 3 stars.

BTW, though this is labeled as a USB 2.0 product, it also works with USB 1.1.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lide 50 Review: Consider Carefully
Well after accidently dropping and smashing my previous Canoscan 1240U which I was completely happy with, EXCEPT for the speed. Superb image quality, but painfully slow, I looked at the canon site to checkout the new range.

I considered 3 canoscans, the Lide20/30 and 50.
I selected the 50 primarily because it was USB2 and more than twice the speed of
my old scanner (the 1240U's are renovned for slow scans).

Unfortunately this scanner just doesnt live up to any of the hype or my expectations. I did expect the image quality to be as good as the lide 20 or 30.

The images as other people have also said are grainy and drilling down on a 600 or 1200dpi scan easily shows this. I am very dissapointed with the image quality.
The dust button must be enabled otherwise dust imperfections are shocking.

The speed is certainly faster especially on preview. But on some scans depending on what you are scanning at etc its not alot faster than my old scanner. I get the
feeling that this scanner is geared around the 300dpi, as some scans other than
300dpi eg: 150 take an unexplainable long time.

The updates of the scan software are nice, but not alot better in my view.
I did end up having to uninstall all of my older Canoscan software to be sure
that there wasnt some wierd software issue causing the poor quality.

If I had to choose again, I think i would again suffer the slow speed of the Lide 30 (updated 1240U) and choose it even the lide 20 is better quality than the 50.

Having said all this even though the scanner is usb2 capable i have it plugged into a usb1 only port, but this shouldnt make any difference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful scans, great value, fast... just as advertised
This scanner is all that Canon advertises:
* BEAUTIFUL SCANS: I scanned over 1,200 photographs with the LiDE 50: Black and white, color, newsprint, etc. The color, shading, and texture of the originals was retained. No added marks or lines from the scanner.
* GREAT VALUE: The software that comes with the scanner is actually stuff you want to keep and use (for a change). Unless you're looking to go pro, Photoshop Elements will be everything you're likely to need (I'm comparing it to features in PaintshopPro 7.0, but Elements is far easier to use). Add to it a bundle of other software that may be just as useful to you, depending on your project.
* FAST: Suffice it to say that I needed to scan a lot of snapshots at 300 dpi and waiting for the scanner was not a problem. See some of the other posts for time measurements.

* I used this on a machine that supported USB 2.0, running WinXP Pro. Installation and set up basically took care of itself.

I'd buy it again. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Super photo quality but not very flexible...
My friends are always commenting on the quality of the photos printed out on our Olympus photo printer. They really look like they came back from the photo shop. They are cosmically better than what you can get from your old inkjet, even if you print inkjet pictures on nice paper.

What's more, since you have an opportunity to photo-edit the pictures before you print, you can correct problems that the photo shop will never bother with: remove red eye, reframe, add labels, etc.

My biggest problem is the limited size of the paper. It will print out a photo at a maximum size of about 3.5 by 5. OK for a snapshot but not good enough for anything you'd want to set on your desk at the office. Also the paper is pretty expensive and relatively hard to find. Remember too that they are not as permanent as regular photos-don't set them down near something wet for example, and make sure you let them dry off a bit before you stack them together.

So if you don't need big pictures, you might find this a fine alternative. The photo quality is really excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I have had this printer for quite a while now. It prints unbelievable pictures that compare to the Kodak photo lab. After I am done taking my shots with my Olympus C-3030zoom camera I insert the smartmedia card directly into the printer, then I plug the printers video output into my television. This printer has some really neat editing features that can be used without your computer. Of course it works really well with my computer. All around it is a really excellent product. I have been impressing my neighbors, and family with this printer. I am getting ready to sell off my regular film eqipment. I just aquired an Olympus P400 digital printer, and all I can say is OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY................................. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Printer for do it yourself household
This is a great printer if you are using a good camera like the dsc-v1. The only thing is it takes 90 seconds for one photo but the photo IS worth the wait. Good quality.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing!
There are several reasons why I do not recommend this printer:

1. Lack of Customer Support. Sony is notorious for bad support. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried getting support via email, chat and phone and did not get any help.

2. Picture Quality. While the pictures are sharp, the colors are really off. When I have tried printing several pictures, they come out with a yellow tint. These same pictures were sent to an online printer and came back okay.

3. LCD Screen. Even though Sony makes the screen really easy to use, it does not always reflect the exact way a picture comes out. I found myself wasting a lot of paper because the picture on the screen looked good but then printed out too yellow, etc.

4. Documentation. The documentation they include with the printer is very poor.

I received this printer for Christmas and I am definitely thinking about bringing it back. It is definitely not the quality I expected from Sony.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lab quality prints @ Home!
"Wow!" That's just what we thought when we hooked up Sony's latest DPP-EX7 digital photo printer. The DPP-EX7 is an on the spot photo editor, borderless coated printer, and memory accessible device (no need for a PC). These qualities make it the perfect printer for quick high quality prints. Today Bytesector will explore the ups and downs of this printer. (full review @ Bytesector.com)

4-0 out of 5 stars Dye-sub printing at home!
You know you've got quality whenever you buy a Sony product. The DPP-EX7 photo printer is no exception. The sample photo this printer comes with will absolutely floor you. I have yet to produce a picture as beautiful as the sample, but I'm hardly the expert photographer. I think the trick to stellar prints is stellar photos. I take most of my digital pictures at a low setting (best for email and such) but the prints still come out great. No grain, no pixelation, nothing that looks even remotely like a home photo printer picture. Even pictures taken at 640x480 come out crisp, sharp, and beautiful.

The printer is a little noisier than I expected, but it's nothing unbearable. The print-time is also not bad. 1.5-2 minutes really feels like nothing, mostly because I don't just stand there waiting for the photo to print. It's always a good idea to multitask anyway.

The editing features are nice (basic ones such as cropping, lighting, saturation, etc.), as are the creative print options (calendars, cards, stickers, etc. - all from the LCD screen on the printer). I'm definitely a novice, though, so these options may not be enough for professional photographers or people with lots of PhotoShop experience.

My only "complaint" would be that the reds in the prints come out REALLY pink sometimes, like the bright pink in drugstore lipstick... Ask them to wear neutral shades of lipstick. And for those gals with naturally red/pink lips, you're out of luck! You will always look like you're wearing [$$$] lipstick.

If cost is an issue, I'd suggest the DPP-SV77, which costs about half of the EX7. The only difference is that the LCD is a teeny bit smaller and the unit is grayish/silver. You'll be happy with either choice, especially if you're looking for a stand-alone printer that produces photo lab-quality results. If you have a digital camera that uses memory stick media, you'll be even happier. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon i470D Photo Printer delivers high-quality photos from your computer or directly from removable memory, as well as detailed printing from the Web and crisp text. It achieves print speeds of up to 18 pages per minute in black and up to 12 ppm in color, along with resolution of up to 4,800 x 1,200 color dpi.

The i470D comes with a built-in print-operation panel, Canon Photo Viewer software, and slots for CompactFlash card, Memory Stick, Microdrive, SmartMedia, SD Card, and MultimediaCard. You can print with or without your computer--just connect a compatible Canon digital camera or camcorder to your i470D printer and print (see specifications for a list of compatible cameras).

The unit's LCD simplifies printing without your computer, offering access to features like image selection, size, paper selection, date stamp, and number of prints. Canon Photo Viewer software is automatically installed with the printer driver and lets you view images on your monitor while you print using the printer's operation panel.

The i470D produces edge-to-edge borderless printing (4 x 6-inch, 5 x 7-inch, or 8.5 x 11-inch prints) with the look and feel of a traditional photograph. The printer generates 4 x 6-inch prints in approximately 93 seconds. Canon advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology uses a nozzle system that ejects consistent, prescribed-volume droplets in microscopic sizes for fine detail.

The i470D supports the worldwide standard Exif 2.2 (Exchangeable Image Format File), so when an Exif-compliant camera captures a photo, important camera settings and shooting conditions are saved in the JPEG image file. Easy-PhotoPrint software analyzes the recorded data and automatically adjusts printer driver settings for optimum image processing. To simplify Web-page printing, Canon also includes Easy-WebPrint software (Windows only), so pages print just as they're seen onscreen. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic printer at a cheap price
I got this printer by accident after returning an Epson 925 from the demo table at Best Buy. The Epson did not work. This printer was marked down to $39.95 and had two full ink cartridges and all the software, book and so on. I had been an Epson diehard fan until I installed and printed with this printer. I was stunned at the excellent quality of all the prints - photo and other - and the ease of installation. The ink cartridges are cheap, but small. Still, I would buy this printer at full price which averages $99. I love this printer. I also have an older Epson 1200 Stylus Color that cost $500 new and it does not print photos as sharp and good as the Canon. I am now an i470 Canon convert. Buy this printer and you will be a happy camper!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Printer!
I've been looking for a while to replace my lagging Lexmark printer. I found a great deal on this Canon printer. I checked the reviews, which were mostly very favorable. I purchased it without hesitation. I'm glad I did.

It does not come with a USB cable, so expect to purchase one. It does come with a sample pack of 5 - 4x6 Canon picture paper, so you don't even need to purchase paper first to test it out. And it does come with a cartriage of color and black ink, both need to be installed. In addition, the cost of the ink is lower than many other printers, ranging about $10 a cartriage.

The software is very nice, so far. You open up their picture printer program. Select the photo(s) you want to print, then you choose from the paper types, from 4x6 to 8-1/2x11 and then how you want the photo(s) printed, ie with/without a border. Pretty much just a three step process.

The results? OY! The pictures are really fantastic. Now I must state that the quality of the print will be based more on the quality of the picture (jpeg/gif/bmp) you are printing. For example, I took a jpeg that I had from my website. In order to use it on my website, I needed to cut the resolution down. When I printed the that picture (4x6), there was a noticable grain to the photo quality. This is not in any way the fault of the printer. When I took a similar jpeg and printed it at its original resolution, the quality was as if I got the picture from a photo store. I decided to take a high resolution jped, about 12 MB, and print it 8-1/2x11. The quality was excellent. I won't say it was perfect. Upon close inspection, ie staring right in front of it, you'll notice slight indications that it was printed, however, I couldn't guarantee that you could go to a photo store and get a better quality image reproduction. However, from just casually looking at the picture, the quality is excellent.

The speed is pretty nice, about 1 4x6 in 40 seconds. Normal print outs are obviously faster, though I haven't done much with that. One other thing to bring, the paper feeder seems very reliable. My Lexmark needed to be manually feed, one sheet at a time, to print and that was such a hassle. However, this printer has a great feeder.

Overall, this product is excellent. Remember to get a USB cable to go along with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased after six months...
This printer has been great. Bought it for $50, after a $50 instant/in-store rebate. The black ink cartridges are inexpensive and longer lasting than my previous, and costly, BJ-100 cartridges. The printer is fairly quiet and prints at an acceptable speed. So far the print quality (black & color) has been excellent. I have yet to use it for any photo pics though - so can't comment there.

Excellent quality of printed items - documents and photos. What's better is the long-lasting cartridges and their low price.

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best purchase I've ever made
In fact, I've got the printer (...) when it was in promotion. Cheap, but never seen any inkjet printer good as this one. I'm 100% satisfied with the picture quality. Simply the best value for the money. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Fax does not work
After having problems receiving faxes from certain fax machines, I just returned my HP to buy a Cannon Multipass.

1-0 out of 5 stars Networking does not work with XP
I was a HP printer fan until I purchased the 7140xi. I purchased it because it came with a print server & networking capabilities for my home LAN. After 40-50 hours on the phone with HP Support; calling friends for technical support, weeks of frustration, and many installs/uninstalls later--the HP printer is being returned. I could not get the HP software to install on my desktop with Windows XP-Home. I was able to install the HP Director software on 1 Windows 2000 laptop but not on another W2K laptop. My advice: consider another multifunction. I just ordered a Canon Multipass 730 & have given up on a networked multifunction for my home LAN.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great hardware, but the PC software is terrible
The hardware functionality is excellent for our small office; however, the Windows PC-Hosted software is awful! The "scan to destination" feature is only compatible with Acrobat 5, and will it only work from the profile under which it was installed. So, if you log in as "bob" and install Acrobat and the HP software, you will only be able to create pdfs while logged in as "bob". Acrobat disappears as an option under all other profiles. Judging by HP's forums, this is a well known problem; however, they haven't released new software since 9-17-2003. The media slot can only be accessed through HP's proprietary software; thererfore, it doesn't appear as a drive, and can't be shared over the network without installing the nasty HP software on every machine.

If you just want a great fax/copier get this. If you'd actually like to use the other features in a networked environment, forget about it.

2-0 out of 5 stars scanning features not ready for primetime
The potential of this device is huge. A single network attached device to do all of your paper-based communication: fax, scan, copy, print. Unfortunately the scanning part doesn't really work.

Printing and copying seem to work fine, no complaints there. I don't use the fax so I can't comment on that. It's when I try to scan over the network connection that things fall apart.

There's two ways to try to do it:

1) Via the client software. Just walk up to the printer, select which computer you want to send the scan to, and scan. Unfortunately the client software consistantly crashes on every computer I've installed it on.

2) Via the web interface. After putting your document on the scan bed or in the document feeder you return to your computer, open the web page for the 7140xi, and click scan. An acrobat window pops up with the pdf (tiff and jpg also supported). You can also have the 7140xi send the document via email.

This works pretty well for a single document on the scan bed. Using the document feeder seems to always produce corrupt images that Acrobat can't open. This makes it hard to scan multiple pages. I thought my document feeder might be broken, but copying from the document feeder works fine. I spent some time with HP on their live support chat, but they weren't useful.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Home Offce Printer
I just got this printer, mainly because of it being a network printer, and I have several PC's that need to print. Set-up was okay, documentation was not too good. Once set up, it's a workhorse. Printed documents are good, photos are okay (as with any all-in-one printer), copying and faxing are a snap. Surprises: I was surprised that it accepted memory cards for photo printing, nice little feature. The printer also works from my LINUX box, that made me happy. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice scans and options.... but...
It scans normal pictures beautifully and quicker than my old scanner. The buttons are convenient and easy to use, as is the included software. My only two gripes are that the scanner glass had a few white flecks on the INSIDE of the glass (and no way to clean them off), and the fact that images scanned with the film scanner look faded and overexposed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!
It's incredibly slow (and NOT because it's scanning at a high resolution - it takes years just to get the software to launch in the first place), insanely loud, and doesn't produce great results. It was issued to me at work - if I'd bought it myself, I'd have returned it immediately.

5-0 out of 5 stars great
Super good quality, easy to setup and great software included. Great for anything from OCR to copying your pictures at high resolution.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow! Awesome Product!
Picked up a Scanmaker 6000 from Best Buy over the weekend and was really suprised. I had never heard of Microtek before and was going to pick up a HP but the specs on this were incredible. 6400x3200 DPI resolution. Pretty easy to setup and install. Just install software reboot and plug in the scanner to one of the USB plugs. I couldn't figure out how to do the email so I called and they were able to give me some help with it which was nice. I'm pleased with my purchase. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Scanner, Easy Setup, Kudos to Amazon for their Service
I bought this scanner after a lot of research into scanners within my price range (under $500). This scanner's predecessor, the Epson Perfection 2450, consistently came out on top in user reviews. So, I came to Amazon, and found they had the best price on this newly released model.

HOWEVER, when the scanner arrived, it had DUST UNDER THE GLASS. There was one VERY LARGE piece of debris under there that was particularly troubling. I knew that unless I could somehow remove it, I'd have to edit every picture to take out that spot. Now I love Photoshop's "healing brush," but I don't see why I should have to use it on my own scans from a BRAND NEW scanner!! That's what I call a self-inflicted wound!

After trying for considerable time to figure out how to get under the glass and clean it, and consulting with my wife and a friend, I decided that if I took the scanner apart I would probably void the warranty and possibly do some damage. I had read that Epson support was a little lacking, so I turned to Amazon. And I'm glad I did! Without any hesitation, Amazon agreed to send me a new scanner (which arrived before I sent the original back), and paid the return shipping on the original item. I have to say that Amazon's attitude restored my faith in customer service--in fact exceeded my expectations.

By the way, Amazon sent me the replacement scanner by 2nd Day Air! (the oriiginal came by super saver shipping, i.e. FREE!).

I now have the best scanner in it's class and price range, with no dust underneath the glass!

I'll add that I am a Macintosh user (fanatic might be a better word!), and this scanner works great with my 1 Ghz Dual Processor G4 running OS X 10.2.6. The software was a breeze to install and simple to use.

Thanks Epson for a great scanner (shame about the dust!), and thanks Amazon for the best in customer service.

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!! Great for transparencies
I had an unusual situation--a week before the 3200 was released, I bought the Epson Perfection 2450. I didn't know about the 3200. And I liked the 2450. It was fabulous. But when I discovered the 3200's release, I returned the 2450 and opted for the 3200. I'm glad I did. There is a difference. Even when I scanned the same transparency at the same setting, the 3200 usually was better--sometimes quite noticably better. It is also supposed to be faster than the 2450.

The big thing for me is the transparency scanning, so I'll focus on that. I've scanned both slides and negatives, and both are great. The color is good, I don't have to sweat bullets in Photoshop trying to salvage the scan, like I have done with previous scanners with so-called "transparency adapters". This scanner puts all the other transparency adapters I've encountered to shame. An awesome transparency adapter, indeed!

However, I have some underexposed Kodachrome slides, so they are always going to be a little more difficult. But, with some tweaking with the bundled Silverfast scanning software, my scans (even on dense, undexposed Kodachrome) have been fine.

I find scanning negatives to be quite nice as well. I get good color on them (especially when using Silverfast). However, this is not a professional level transparency scanner, and it should not be mistaken as such. (It may be surpisingly close to pro-level in some cases, however!)

The only complaint about the Silverfast software (which is a "lite" version) is that it won't scan in 48 bit. But 24 bit mode is OK for me. My file sizes (when scanning a 35 mm transparency) are about 35 to 40 MB at 3200 resolution, 24 bit. This translates to a 14" x 9 1/2" print, at 300 dpi (good resolution setting). It'll yield a much bigger print if set at 150 dpi, obviously. That's more than enough for most people using ink jet printers.

I have been frequenting a message board that has reviews on this scanner, and many professional photographers are also most pleased with this scanner. I'm not at the professional level yet ("serious hobbyist" is more like it) but I can get a bit picky with my photos. But these pro photographers were far pickier than me, and they liked this scanner. Those who were scanning large format negatives (larger than 35 mm) were very pleased with the quality of this scanner, especially for the price. They said that there wasn't that much of a huge difference (at least not several thousand dollars difference) between the 3200 and a high-end thousands-of-dollars professional scanner. Don't get me wrong--you'll still need and want a dedicated "pro" scanner for certain things, but for most people, (even some pros) this scanner more than fills the bill.

I installed it on a Macintosh G4 running OS X.2. Installation was seamless. My Mac loves this scanner! I have it attached to the Firewire port, but it comes with USB as well. I have a lot of RAM loaded on my Mac, and as usual, lots of RAM is recommended when dealing with large graphics files.

I tried the Epson "Scan" software (which will scan in 48 bit) but it's not quite as nice as the Silverfast software. (By the way, Silverfast is considered to be excellent scanning software, and sells for a tidy sum separately.) Epson's software tends to crop the negatives and slides too much when set in "thumbnail" mode. I highly recommend using Silverfast, or just avoiding Epson's "thumbnail" mode. Also, there are several plastic film holders, so your transparencies are kept in place. Very handy.

Also bundled with this scanner is Photoshop Elements 2. This "little brother" to Photoshop is an excellent software package and great if you don't yet have your own graphics software. (I had Photoshop 7 so used that most of the time.) Photoshop Elements will suit most users' needs more than well enough.

I highly recommend this scanner. And apparently, many other (far more experienced) photographers share my viewpoint. Most of the buzz about this scanner is very good.

1-0 out of 5 stars AVOID this scanner!!!
I'm glad that some people have had a good experience with this scanner, but I am not one. I own an Epson Perfection 2450 Photo scanner and have been very happy with it. I thought it's "big brother" would make a nice, economical additon to the office where I work.

Boy was I wrong.

Several people have mentioned dust issues. I haven't noticed that but I do have the problem others have mentioned in the professional photography forums on the internet. Some of these scanners come with glass that has not been treated properly and I got one of them. What happens is when you lay an image on the glass, especially a glossy photo, it "sticks" a bit and looks like there are watermarks on the image after it has scanned. It will do this every time and in slightly different spots and there is no way to keep it from happening. I've tried wipping the glass and photos and even cleaning them, but to no avail. I called Epson tech support and they said the glass was faulty and to return it for a replacement.

No thanks, I think I'll try another brand where it won't be a crapshoot as to wether I get a working one or not. I've always loved Epson products but this leaves me a bit disillusioned. They let quality control slide a lot on the production of this model.

There is a rebate on this scanner because it is being replaced by the newer, better and hopefully higher quality Perfection 4870. It has a Dmax of 3.8 over the 3.4 of the 3200, so it should be able to better capture image data from the dark areas of photos too. If you are interested in this scanner, I would try that or the 2450. I've also heard good things about the Canon CanoScan 9900F.

I was also not overly impressed with the color reproduction on this scanner. For some reason it is not as good as the older 2450. I'm a graphic designer and at work I have an 9 year old AGFA scanner that is A LOT slower than the 3200, but it's color reproduction was richer and more evenly balanced. Details in the shadow area were also more acurately reproduced. I tested both on the same photo to reach this conclusion.

Also, only get the "Pro" edition if you want the extra software, otherwise they are the same exact scanner.

Aside from this, I didn't test it's transparency capabilities. It is very fast and would be a good deal for the $ if you don't get a lemon. It's up to you if you want to take that chance. I know my time is more valuable than that.

1-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to use Software
My objective in purchasing this scanner was to be able to place a scanned photo on the same page as some text. After several sessions,I have not found a solution. Scanning is not the problem; rather, sending a scanned image to another application such as word so that one can combine a word document with the image. The software gives no clue and reaching Epson's technical support is a joke. Consider another brand. I'm selling or giving this one away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Scanning with perfection
This is an affordable professional scanner that rivals the quality of any negative scanner I have ever used. Its software is great, and is very straight forward. You will not go wrong with this scanner. I am a professional photographer, and have now made this the only scanner I use. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

With a combination of speed, precision, and brilliant color, the Canon S900 brings professional-quality printing to home desktops. Print speeds as low as 37 seconds for a border-free, 4-by-6-inch print and about a minute for an 8-by-10-inch print are suitably impressive, while a system of six ink tanks (one of each is included in the box) allows you to economically replace just the colors you use most, cutting back on both cost and waste.

The bubble-jet-style print head is equipped with 3,072 nozzles, which use Canon's Microfine Droplet technology to guarantee crisp, accurate detail and rich colors. With a resolution of 2,400 x 1,200 dpi and 49 levels of gradation, your photos will come out looking clean, bright, and true to life. The border-free printer settings for 4-by-6-inch stock result in professional-looking, edge-to-edge photos you can be proud of. A large number of paper types and sizes are easily accommodated, including transparencies, fabric transfers, photo cards, banners, envelopes, letter, legal, A4, A5, and more. The S900's paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets of 17-lb. paper.

Installation is easy thanks to a convenient USB port, while a software bundle--including appropriate drivers, a user's guide, PhotoRecord (PC), ImageBrowser (Mac), ZoomBrowser (PC), and PhotoStitch (PC/Mac)--helps you get the most out of your printer. A power cable and sample paper pack is also included. Weighing about 13 pounds, the S900 has a modest footprint, measuring just 17.4 by 12.8 inches. Canon provides a one-year warranty, with Instant Exchange service, covering parts and service. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Printer!
I did a lot of research on printers and decided to wait for the Canon S900 to come out. It was definitely worth it...compared to other ink-jet printers, you are gaining in speed and quality, which is really what it all comes down to with a printer.

The printer comes nicely packed with a quick-start guide and CD right inside the top of the box. The 6 ink cartridges are also tucked in, three on each side. I ordered backup ink cartridges as well. Ordering the ink cartridges without actually having seen the printer or what cartridges it takes was a bit of a risk, especially when the cartridges were shipped ahead of the printer and were labeled for the Canon S800. But they are fine. Look for the BCI-6xx model numbers and you will be fine.

Also, be sure to order a USB A-B type cable as the printer does not come with one. These are very cheap, but if you get the printer and don't have a cable, it will make for a disappointing evening when you can't set it up.

Setup was a breeze. The print quality is outstanding, and the printer is very quiet. I do a lot of graphics and text printing and it is amazingly fast and the the text is clear. I would recommend getting some good paper, though, as regular xerox machine type paper will not do this printer justice. I could notice a clear difference in text output.

The six different ink cartridges could be viewed by some to be a downfall, but I would rather replace one $10 color when needed than have to replace all of the colors at once like in other brands.

In summary, this is outstanding printer, and if you can afford it, you will not be disappointed. Coupled with a good digital camera, you will never need to get film developed again!

5-0 out of 5 stars Simplicity, Great Images at Fantastic Speeds
Everything about the S900 is very easy. The setup, installing the ink tanks,and print head. The inital printhead alignment was almost automatic. I was printing pictures in about fifteen minutes. I was very surprised with the speed and quality of the finished product. I use, and recommend Canon's paper pro photo paper. I tried a few other brands and received the best results with the Canon product. I use an epson photo quality printer at work and the image quality is first rate. The Canon's image is as good, the the speed is unbeliveable. It is fast, very fast. The printing maintenance features on the Canon are also well though out. Monitoring and changing ink tanks is a breeze.The automatic printhead cleaning is also easy to preform. Best Photo quality printer I have ever used.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Printer
I bought this printer after being disapointed by the quality of the photo printing from the HP Photosmart 1215. I am completely satisfied with this printer. The print quality is unbelievable! They look as good and clear as photographs from film. The set up was pretty simple. Be sure to use the Canon paper and ink to ensure the best quality output and to guard against premature fading of your pictures. Canon prints were independently tested, and the time before fading occurs was found to be about 25 years (similar to regular photos from film), while the HP and Lexmark printers did much worse.

3-0 out of 5 stars I loved it while it worked
Keep in mind this is a consumer printer. It is not going to hold up long if you print hundreds of pages per month. I had mine for almost two years before it started acting up. I've probably printed between 300-500 full page (letter size or 8x10) prints with some smaller prints mixed in. It has now started clogging (one or more colors stop coming out) and doesn't appear to be as sharp as it used to be.

Using the cleaning or deep cleaning feature helped at first but it clogged again last night very soon after cleaning it. Using the cleaning feature seems to waste a lot of ink and this will fill up or saturate the waste ink pads inside the printer. Once the waste ink pads are full, the printer will not print any more and you have to have the printer serviced if you ever want to use it again. Mine hasn't stopped working yet but I'm sure the waste ink is getting full and I'm tired of wasting ink anyway by trying to "clean" it.

From reading up on this printer on the Web, it appears the print head is the weak link. Some people have had it replaced several times. A new print head is around $85 and the waste ink pads are about $25 just for the parts. I was quoted $135 to replace the head and pads. Since I did like the printer when it was working and because I already have extra ink for it, I was going to get it fixed. I then found a refurbished S900 here on Amazon for $99. It supposedly comes in the box from Canon and has a 90 day warranty and comes with ink! If it comes with all six colors of Cannon ink, that is worth $72 alone! I just bought the refurbished printer and wrote this review to help those of you who are having similar issues. I hope the refurbished printer works. If not, I'm going to find the nearest Canon office and throw both printers through the front window.

One more thing, don't waste your time, money or ink by using non-Canon paper. Kodak paper in particular (even their best paper) does NOT work well in this printer. I understand there are some 3rd party papers that work well in this printer but I have yet to use one. I have tried Kodak, HP, Epson, and a few other brands and they all stink. I prefer the Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy. It seems to look as good as the Photo Paper Pro and costs a little less. Namaste and Good luck!

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad print heads
I had the S900 for over a year and everything worked perfectly. Then the print head broke, horrible banding that simply couldn't be fixed. So I inquired and ordered a new one - $85 thank you very much. I got it home and within 5 minutes it too had broken. I took the (new) broken printhead back to the store and they replaced it free. That was in December 2003.

Now, March 2004, the print head has broken down - AGAIN. I love the quality of the prints, absolutely terrific. But the continuing technical problems make this printer a lemon.

I paid $350 in early 2002 when this printer came out and I feel I overpaid given the recurring problems. Canon should be punished for releasing a sub-standard printer like this on to the market. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy all in one office machine!
I do professional photography and wanted to find a combo machine that I could also use to scan my photos. I had purchased the HP scanner 5530 that has a multiple photo feeder. I ended up returning it because I was not able to scan textured prints with good quality. I wanted to find a scanner that was easy & quick to operate. I normally need to scan anywhere from 100 to 250 photos at one session and using a flat bed design was too slow & tedious. The 5510v is designed to scan photos with a couple of buttons on the panel. The scan is sent to your computer for your approval. The software will crop and auto correct for you. There is even a black & white scan feature built on the panel. The quality is good enough for the web or contact sheet printing. The software installed very easily on my Windows XP machine. You can customize the software to operate in a way that is most convenient for you. The printing quality is good for a 4 color ink machine. If you are looking for a photographic quality printer, then the 6+ ink printers are better. The coping feature works very well. Overall, this is a good & simple to operate office machine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Product, but Installation was God Awful...
I am a loyal user of HP products and I have found the 5110 to be a great product. However, I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the god-awful software installation... the installation failed 4 times and I was finally successful on the fifth try. This was going to be the last attempt before searching their support site or, [deep breath], I succumbed to calling customer support.

I decided to try installing the software completely without connecting the unit first by checking the box for this option on the 4th and 5th (successful) tries and suggest everyone else do this as well.

After that initial frustration, the unit has been great. All the functionality works great as I would expect from an HP product. And, the printer is quieter than many other deskjets I have seen. My only "worry" is the flimsiness of the printer cartridge door. I was afraid to pull on it too hard.

1-0 out of 5 stars HP has jumped the shark with this one...
I've always been loyal to HP printers. I've been using them for several years at home and at my office. Up until this one I've always been pleased with the quality and performance.

Here are a few reasons I curse the day I bought this printer:

1) The software is really annoying. By default it puts an "upload photos" folder on your desktop to promote hp's picture service. It won't let you delete it, move it, or stop it from showing up in the software options. I actually had to find it in the installed programs list and uninstall it.

2) The software is really, really annoying. When the cartridges are low it pops up to tell every single time you sign into XP. When you print it has stupid status windows that pop up, and it's one of those programs that insists on running all the time (on the system tray).

3) The printer is very loud. When I hear people complain about printers being loud I usually ignore them because it's not that important to me that a printer be really quiet. No joke, this cheaply built piece of junk will wake up your neighbors.

4) It jams, and really doesn't like envelopes. It makes the most god-awful and loud noise when it trys (unsuccessfully) to pick up a page or envelope. It then beeps loudly and the software launches a pop-up to tell you (as if you didn't already know).

On the positive side:

- It was/is priced pretty reasonably.

- Even though it sucks as a printer, it does perform alot of functions (i.e. scans/faxes/prints).

Having said that, I seriously suggest you look at alternatives to this printer.

Disclaimer: Many of my complaints listed above are related to the software, there *may* be options to make it less of a hassle but I admit I haven't taken the time to look. Again, I really hate everything about the printer/software.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent All In One Unit!!!
Fantastic Unit...Dont know what this other guys problem is with his unit?? Mine has functioned perfectly in every mode...The guides arent deep enough because this isnt a comercial mach. It isnt ment to fax 25 + pages at a time...Ive faxed hundreds of faxes,printed hundreds of prints,photos etc. And mine Hasnt jammed once.Ive had it for two years and its still going strong...My advice if you want a good resonably priced unit, This is the one. Buy it.....

1-0 out of 5 stars More Jam ups than the California freeways!
I HATE this piece of garbage! I have an HP scanner that I love. I needed a copier and fax so I thought that this would be a good choice. It wasn't the cheapest unit nor was it the most expensive. Fast modem and higher resolution at a reasonable price. WRONG! This sucker jams almost EVERY time I try to copy or fax multible pages. I contacted HP support and they had no idea why this would happen. (I think the page guides should be deeper IMHO). STAY AWAY...GO WITH CANNON! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The simply designed setup and interface of the Epson Perfection 1650 Photo will have you happily scanning away in just a few minutes. The scanner connects to your PC or Macintosh via a USB cable, and its slim design and small footprint show that it was designed with the home office in mind. For digital photographers, the 1650 Photo includes a 35mm film adapter along with Adobe Photoshop Elements for editing and enhancing your digital images.

A serious hobbyist couldn't ask for a better combination of precision and value. Despite the relatively low price, the scanner offers a 16-bit grayscale, 48-bit color, and a maximum resolution of 1,600 x 3,200 dpi--which is more than enough scanning power to glean every sharp detail from family photos.

One-touch buttons allow you to instantly copy, print, or e-mail photos. The built-in zoom feature provides a range of 50 to 200 percent, supplying plenty of options for enlarging or cropping your final prints. A cold cathode ray lamp is used as the light source, a powerful and economical choice that provides hours of efficient lighting. Maximum scan size is 8.5 x 11 inches, large enough for most office documents as well as your favorite vacation shots.

Included in the box is the scanner, film adapter, Adobe Photoshop Elements, and a USB cord, along with Epson Twain and a design software package. The manufacturer's warranty covers parts and labor for a full year. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best model out there in-between home and business use.
I haven't had this scanner for very long, but I have already made more than 500 scans with it, and it's is awesome. The preview scan is ridiculously quick: I can get a good idea of what my scan will look like in less than a couple of seconds. The software bundle is very nice for a beginner, wherein you can make automatic scans for email, web, file outputs with the push of the respective button on the scanner body. I tried the software out a few times and I was impressed with the results, but if you're using Photoshop you don't need to install the whole package. It only took a few minutes to set the thing up and do my first scan, which was pretty cool.

Once you gain more confidence with the different elements in a scan (namely the relationship image size and resolution have with file size) you can use TWAIN for a more manual approach. This allows you to adjust your settings based on what your requirements for your final project are. For example, I could scan a postage stamp-sized picture at a high resolution and enlarge it into an 8" x 10" photo or larger and the quality would still look pretty good. Your final scan speed will depend on the resolution you've selected , but it's still fast at higher resolutions. The lower the resolution, the faster the scan time.

I love using TWAIN, especially since it only took a few trial runs to figure it out. It's calculations for file size, resolution, and image size are all right there, so there's no guess work needed from you. Epson also provides pretty good documentation for doing things manually for your first time (like a reference table for your final output on projects for web, negatives, photos, text, etc.). The color has been consistently sharp and the resolution very crisp, on both the flatbed and the transparency unit.

Notice, however, that this is not a portable scanner. It's bigger than some on the market and it is powered by an external power supply. But it is perhaps the best model on the market for projects that require excellent quality whether your project is personal or semi-profesional.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does descreening on magazine pics as well as slides
A great scanner, but it took a little time for me to set it up with the software. Called service at Epson and was so impressed with them. Problem I had with setup was that I had not uninstalled my UMAX software (previous scanner) and there were conflicts. Once I took it off, no problem. Called Epson service later to find out how to use the descreen function in order to scan pics from magazines without getting a moire pattern, but the tech guy said he'd have another more knowledgeable guy call me. The new service tech was top notch and spent (his dime) more than an hour with me on the phone showing me how to set up the scanning for special effects, color adjustments, descreening, and so much more. I recommend you use the "manual" setup rather than the automatic scan setup, and if you have Photoshop you don't need to install their image editing software. Great service. Great scanner. They have a newer one now, model 1660, which I assume is even better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad,...for the price.
I was suspect after reading all the reviews about the tech support and bad drivers. Despite common sense telling me 'don't buy this scanner,' I went ahead because of the rebate. I figure for under $200, I can't go wrong. I consider myself fairly tech saavy, so I'd tinker with it if any problems came up. No regrets. The drivers installed without a hitch on my PC running XP. The software really isn't the greatest, but generally easy to use. The important thing for me is that it scans very well. I'm pleased with the output. The downside is that it's noisier than a freight train! And it seems really flimsy, like one could crack the lid if one wasn't careful. The design is just big and ugly like a 10 year old PC. Too bad it doesn't look like the nice slim Canon flatbed scanners. Ooops! I guess I could have considered a Canon, huh?

5-0 out of 5 stars great quality scans
Bought for scanning several family photo albums onto CDs for members of the family. 800+ pictures later, the 1650-Photo is still buzzing along without any gliches.
Installation was easy, done with clear printed directions (onto a Mac G4 running OS 9.2)
The scanner does a quick pre-scan to produce an image you can see to make whatever adjustments for framing, color, contrast, shadow & highlight levels you desire. If you use the Auto mode instead, the software is so "smart" that it will usually produce results as good as you can do using the adjustments mode.
Once you are satisfied with the pre-scan image, you click on "scan", which the 1650 does in about 4 seconds. Thumbnail images of each scanned photo are displayed, along with the option to type in a name for each.
The picture files can be saved into several file types. If you chose .jpg you can adjust the file size, going small for e-mail use, to large for making paper prints.
I have not yet made any scans of photo negatives, but have of jewelry and maps and they turn out great! An excellent product at a very reasonable price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Compatible with Mac OS X
I purchased the Epson 1650 Photo Flatbed Scanner 6 months ago. The primary reason I was attracted to this particular model was it's ability to scan 35mm slides. NOT.... Although Epson claims it is Mac compatible, Epson neglects to inform the consumer that the scanner IS NOT COMPATIBLE with the Mac OS X operating system.

Epson has been promising me delivery of the necessary drivers (at an additional cost, accompanied by a sales receipt, UPC bar code, and required application form) for 6 months now. In my latest contact with Epson (Oct. 3,2002) I am told they "do not know when the driver will be available".

So in conclusion, you owners of Mac computers - don't consider buying this product if you expect to use it as a scanner ... for anything else? ... it's up to you! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amateur Digital Photographers Rejoice!
I bought my sister a Kodak Easyshare CX4230 digital camera for the holidays, so mom thought a good photo printer to accompany it was a good idea. Since my mom isn't that computer literate, she relied on my judgement over which to buy. After LOTS of research, I decided to recommend this printer for several reasons:

Being on a budget, the price of this printer was very attractive. I had planned to recommend the more advanced S830, but it was out of range. Also, this printer, like the 830, has the ability to accept mutiple memory card types with the included Dazzle! 4 in 1 card adapter, giving you the ability to print photos straight from through the printer on the LCD screen, without having to even touch the PC. Another thing I liked was the multiple ink tanks. Since this printer would also function as a replacement to an older inkjet, I felt that was a key feature since the old printer had just one cartridge for the colors, while this printer has 3 separate color cartridges. Did I also mention this printer is FAST? It managed to print 2 full color 4x6 photos on 8.5x11 paper in less than 2 minutes, and can print web pages and full color charts in less than 15 seconds.

As for the photo printing, the pictures came out looking absolutely beautiful, as far as I was concerned. The qaulity may not be up to par if you're a serious photo enthusiast, but for as far as my family's needs are concerned, they looked just great.

Setup was a bit more complicated than any other printer I've had to install, but was problem free. Be warned, though. There's no USB cable included to connect it to the PC. Overall, this is a fabulous printer and I highly recommend it to anyone who's just plunged into digital photography.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good quality for the price
I purchased this printer with the intent to use it for both photo printing and regular text printing. Photos look great and print relatively quickly, but I had a problem with white streaks when printing text. I ended up calling Canon support and they sent me a new printer head for free since the printer is still under warranty. I've had no problems since. I give the printer a high rating mainly because I was very satisified with their tech support.

3-0 out of 5 stars uses too much ink!!
I have to agree w/ the other reviewer that said this printer is an ink eater. It's absolutely ridiculous how often I have to replace the ink cartridges. I rarely print in color & try to use the 'gray scale' option as much as possible, but it still doesn't help. Although the cartridges are cheaper (you can get all 4 for about $50) than most, they run out much faster so you end up spending just as much on them. The print quality is good & once the printer gets started it prints very fast, but having to go to the store & replace the cartridges all the time is a big hassle!

3-0 out of 5 stars Ink eater!
I've had this printer for about three months now and have printed about 20 pages total (not full color, not photographs). I am on my third set of cartridges already! In other words, after printing about ten pages (remember, not full color), I have to replace all the cartridges. I find the print quality to be quite good actually, but have never seen a printer eat through ink so quickly. Before buying a printer, I seriously suggest you look at the page output per cartridge.

2-0 out of 5 stars Canon S530D Review
This printer prints fast but the quality is poor. Consumer reports rates it a best buy but I disagree. Pictures come out very graney and its almost worthless to have a 2 megapixel or higher camera because the quality will not be seen with this printer. I do not recommend this printer to anyone. I bought the Cannon to replace a Hewlett Packard deskjet 932C and it was slow but the picture quality was superior to the Cannon. This purchase was a real dissapointment. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Photos
If you are looking for an affordable photoprinter, not a fast text printer, this is the one.

I have a 2 year old printer at home printing digital photos at 2400x1200 dpi. I printed the same photo on both my old printer and the hp 7660 at max resolution and wow the colors in the hp printer are more vivid and accurate. The photo felt more life like, similar to film prints.

The draw backs are you can not refill the ink cartridges, and you have to switch between black and the photo cartridges. It is slow printing text pages compared to a dual roll printer like a deskjet.

In summary if you want a great photo printer at a reasonable price this one is it, if you want to print say 24 page documents all the time buy another printer. This was designed to be a photo printer, not a document printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars great performance
When I fist installed the printer, I couldn`t get it to work. Then I disconnected my USB devices, then I downloaded the driver update, and reinstalled it. After reinstalling, I re-connected my USB devices to the computer and I`ve had no problems since then. It prints out fantastic photos and with great detail. I`ve got my scanner, monitor and printer all calibrated together. I print what I see on my screen. I`ve used the photo cartridge and can`t believe the print. I`ve had Epson and Canon`s and this printer exceeds them. This is my 2nd HP printer. I work in the Printing industry and have compared this with our commercial printers and the results are much better. It shows greater detail in the highlights and the shadows. Other than the USB snafu at installation, I`d recommend this printer over all the printers I`ve seen and used. And the price can`t be beat. I slide the ink saturation tab all the way over to the left and I think it helps conserve ink with no loss of quality. Don`t let `picoliter` and `ink nozzle` talk from the others sway you into making an expensive mistake. If all you want is the best picture quality and a great price, go with the HP 7660.

4-0 out of 5 stars MAC Users - Get the Latest Driver from HP Support
If you have a Mac G4, if your OS X version is 3.3.4, HP would have you believe that the printer will work out of the box, with later versions of OS X. After some 4 hours of trying to work this out on a G4 PowerBook, here are the results of trying to use the CD provided "with the printer".
1. It set up fine and showed the printer in the OSX printers window.
2. It tested itself fine in the Test and WOW! mode, printing its specimen pictures using the Powerbook
3. Trying to print a picture from Photoshop CS, caused the Adobe program to ABORT.
4, Trying to print a picture from Preview, caused the Apple program to ABORT.
5. Trying to print a picture from iPhoto caused the Apple program to ABORT.

I returned the printer the next day to Circuit City, even though it cost me a 15% restocking fee. They were selling old stock, with out-dated drivers.
I then went to Cosco, and bought the (High-End) $299 HP Printsmart 7960 Printer on sale for $179. It has the latest CD with the correct driver. This printer works as it should.
In talking with the HP Support person, I found a day later, that I could have downloaded the new driver from their site, but the store people had no clue that this would be a problem for Macintosh. They speak PC, not Mac.
And with the way it uses ink, I estimate that I will equal the price of the printer in 4 sets of ink cartridges, in about a month. They should sell the printers for free, and make their money on the ink cartridges.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Time with Other Printers...
This is the photo printer to get! I bought mine last week from Sam's Club for under $100 (and it came with a USB cable). I researched printers for quite some time...and the HP Photsmart 7660 had just the features I was looking for. GREAT print quality, VERY quiet operation, easy to use, and it worked right out of the box. Follow the simple steps on the setup guide and you're in business. There are other HP's I looked at but most had bells & whistles I didn't need or was never going to use.

I printed color photo's, back & white photo's, and documents and I'm pleased with every print so far. I purchased the black & white print cartridge and the photo's look clean, crisp and equal to the quality from a photo lab. If you do any black & white work get the catridge, you'll be happy you did. I bought both HP photo paper and Kodak premium photo paper and I'm happy with both although the HP photo paper seemed to have a higher luster and is a bit heavier. I like the seperate 4x6 paper tray on the printer - easy to use. As a photographer I like the convenience of this printer. I can view and edit my photo's in Adobe Photoshop 7 and have great quality prints up to 8.5x11 in almost an instant.

Not sure how long the printer cartidges last yet. I bought several just in case they run out fast. I'm keeping close track of my usage so I can figure out the cost per print. I'll try to post some info on that subject at a later date. In the mean time I know I made a wise choice selecting an HP Photosmart printer.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it for the quality and cost
This was the least expensive of the HP printers that I was considering. When I brought it home and started using it I definitely made the right decision. The boderless prints are great and the quality is fantastic. I also like that this printer is not as loud as my deskjet HP, a big plus. Some things to consider though it doesen't come with a usb cord, so purchase one also if you plan on buying this printer (note: be sure to get the right one) I have a usb cord but the one I have didn't fit into the slot, so I had to borrow the usb cord from my scanner instead. Also, I wanted to point out that the print cartridges, seem to run out fairly quick (they are pretty small though, so it makes sense), have a supply on hand if you plan on printing an album out like I am. Overall I like this printer for it's cost and the quality prints. ... Read more
