5-0 out of 5 stars Photo Printing - The Next Generation
Every once in a while we cycle our digital technology at home in a hand-me-down way. Every time we do this, there is an order-of-magnitude improvement in speed and/or quality, and this purchase was no exception.

We logged a departure from HP with this purchase, moving from a DJ 712 to the Canon i960.

I am an anti-banding freak. I select my printer by walking through Best Buy (or whatever store) and examining print samples for banding. IMHO HP used to distinguish itself by not having any. But I've grown tired of visible dots as well.

I have never seen an Epson printer of any kind pass this banding test in the stores I visit. Epson sales reps - take note.

Wanted to go to the 6-tank variety because I was just irritated by the $30 cost when ANY color ran out. This should be more efficient.

I already have a Canon PowerShot S50 and the little CP-300 dye-sub portable. Love 'em.

Was pleasantly surprised to see the i960 print one of my digital photos off the computer on 4x6 Photo Pro paper, and it looked as good as the dye-sub (except, of course, for the lack of protective layer). No visible dots, no banding. Looks like lab quality to me.

I have no technical or ergonomic issues with the i960, love the speed and quality of the output. Had a great OOBE, and am looking forward to years of continued successful and professional results.

It was a good purchase for me.

Cheers,

-- Mike

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantasitc photo printer
We needed a color printer for mug shots at work and this one works great. Our graphics art designer suggested an expensive Epson which the boss didn't what to pay for. The main requirement was for more color cartridges meaning better photos. We purchased the Canon i960 and were blown away by the quality of the photos it printed.

I decided to shop for one for home use and printed a 1 megapixel shot of a child wearing a black shirt in a colorful ball pit on both a Canon i960 and a HP photosmart 9760. These two printers both use a 6 ink system. I was interested in the HP because their 6 ink system is available on a wide range of printers, some of which are half the price of the Canon i960. With the Canon line you need to step up to the i960 or i900d to get their 6 ink color system. In both cases I used the corresponding vendors 4x6 photo paper. To my eye the Canon output had more vivid colors and a crisper image. Very fine details such as strands of hair were somewhat blurred and lost in the background of the HP photo. The ball pit mesh netting was sharper in the canon photo. My wife felt that the ball outlines were sharper on the Canon photo.

The under 60 second output speed of the i960 (for 4x6) photos feels fast. I was not as frustrated with this printers speed as I have been with some others I tested. Also there are no perforated edges to tear off.

The individual ink cartridges seem like a nice idea and are reasonably priced.

The i960 is quieter than most of the cheaper inkjets I've used in the past.

Finding Canon printer supplies in stores is a bit harder than HP supplies.

I've heard a life span of 25 years for the Canon photos which is less than the 75 years claimed by HP for their photo inks.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Printer Head / Ink Cartridge Design
I am very disappointed in the Cannon i960 printer. The printer head is very poorly designed. I had great difficulty getting the print head and ink cartridges to work. I had to reseat the printer head 5 times before it would work. I had to reseat the magenta ink cartridge 5 times before it would work. It took 4 hours of reading the manual to diagnose all the errors I was getting and running tests to get this printer where it would print a color picture. Our last printer was an HP 895cse. The HP was easy to set up and ran great for 3 years. I wish we had bought another HP. I am very disappointed in the quality of this printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Direct, simple & complete.
After delivery, I checked out the directions printed on the sides of the box before opening it. My first opioion was that this was going to be a quick and easy assembly and application software uploaded to Zigzag, the name I've given to my computer. I unloaded the printer, power cable, the ink jet cartridges, & 4X6 photo paper insert. Then I unwrapped all shipping tape stripping from the products, placed the printer on its stand...please excuse my long windedness...attached the power cord, placed the ink cartridges in their appropriate spots, placed the 4X6 paper tray, expanded the the paper outputs trays, pluged in MY OWN USB cable...since one didn't come with the purchase.

There it was, ready to go. My second opinion was that all was easy. I uploaded the software following instructions. All was easy like drinking fine wine.

My first photo print was two 2X3 photos on one sheet of 4X6 glossy paper supplied with the Canon i906. The detailed printing application was a breeze, the color and detail quality were excellent, as good/better than photo lab processing. I'm a Happy Photographer & Happy Photo Printer thanks to my new CANON i960. Enjoy.

1-0 out of 5 stars DOESN'T WORK NO CABLE INCLUDED RUN
I can't believe why no cable was included knowing that it uses only one kind of cable. Now I have to go get a cable somewhere. So basically the price of the printer is $20 more then list price. If there were choices of cable to use I can understand but it only uses USB. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Just when you thought scanning couldn't get any faster, crisper, or sleeker, along comes the new HP Scanjet 4670. This small but mighty scanner will revolutionize the way you think about scanning. Sized to fit in a drawer, briefcase, or even vertically on a bookshelf, yet versatile and durable enough to scan oversized and three-dimensional items, it’s the perfect fit for a home office, family room, or college dorm.

Everyone can find a use for this handy machine. Be more productive by converting memos, blurry faxes, and other text documents into editable text using optical character recognition (OCR) software (no more retyping!). Scan photos and documents and instantly e-mail them to family and friends without a PC. Make a photo inventory of heirlooms or other valuables. Or scan negatives and slides using a transparency adapter to create an archive of your photos.

So how do you actually scan?
For single pages, simply follow these steps:
  1. Pull the top edge of the scanner, rotating the scanner forward in the holder. The scanner can rest against the front edge of the holder.
  2. Position the item face up in the lower left corner of the holder, with the top of the item facing left. Use the media placement tabs on the holder to position the item.
  3. Return the scanner to its original position on the holder. You can see the item face up through the scanner glass.
  4. Press the Scan button.
For books and other thick materials, simply place the scanner flat.

Give mobility a whole new meaning
Now that you telecommute, your family room is more than a family room; it’s your office. Space is a valuable commodity, so the slim HP 4670 scanner is an ideal fit in both form and function. Being able to scan oversized items has been a lifesaver for those drawings you frequently e-mail to the office for approval; especially because it’s as simple as placing your scanner on the easel, scanning the drawing in sections, and letting the ArcSoft Panorama Maker software automatically and seamlessly "stitch" it together. One click of the Instant Share button and you mail the entire list of recipients at once.

When the workday ends, you place your scanner back on the bookshelf, where it’s safe and out of sight. Best of all, if you absolutely must finish those presentation transparencies on a Saturday, the HP 4670 is as mobile as you are. Just grab your scanner, transparent materials adapter, and laptop, and head to your favorite quiet spot. Whether you're sitting on the floor or in an office, the unique Scanjet technologies (high-end color separation; accurate, flattened scanning bed; and lots of other automatic color-balancing, restoration, and enhancement features) give you professional, polished results … no matter where you are.

Get the whole picture
One of the most fun and unique things you can do with your HP 4670 is create gorgeous panoramic photos (even 360° panoramas). Simply scan your image in sections and the Automatic Stitching feature in ArcSoft Panorama Maker software (included) will automatically reassemble oversized images for printing. You can combine horizontal, vertical, or tiled sets of images.

Save space
The HP 4670 is so slim it fits on a bookshelf or in a briefcase. You can store it vertically, like a book, so it’s perfect for a college dorm or a combined family room/office area. But don't let the ultra-thin design fool you: It’s made to move around and take with you. We even drop-tested the scanner from three feet! So if a sibling riot erupts, triggering an accidental fall from the table, the HP 4670 will survive unscathed.

The windowpane is tough polycarbonate plastic and tempered glass to resist chipping, scratching, and breaking.(That’s the same stuff used in many safety hardhats, motorcycle helmets, and riot shields.) The frame is secured with 12 screws (twice as many as most other scanners), and trimmed in rubber to absorb shocks. The carriage has a special mechanical design that protects the sensors and their wire bonds.

More features:

  • One-touch operation.
    Four-button design makes it easy to perform common tasks:
    1. Scan
    2. Copy
    3. Instant Share
    4. Power Save
  • Six-second-preview scan
    Get speedy confirmation of a successful scan! Precise image placement. Look through the see-through scanning window to "frame" and place items just where you want them.
  • Cross-platform adaptable
    The HP 4670 is Windows 98-, 2000-, Me-, XP-, and Mac-compatible.
  • Complete high-speed connectivity.
    Compatibility with USB 2.0 specifications allows plug-and-play installation of peripheral devices. Exclusive HP technology. Charge coupled device (CCD) scanning brings together an innovative combination of a new, thin optical system and CCD scanner technologies. CCD captures light more efficiently than other methods, and produces a grain-free print.
  • Sharpen up
    Resolution is a measurement in dots per inch (dpi) of the sharpness and clarity of an image. The HP 4670 has 2400-dpi optical resolution, producing crisp, clear, vibrant images. With 48-bit color, you'll also see clear photos with brighter yellows, richer reds, and cooler blues.
  • Scan anything
    The versatile HP 4670 can scan anything from books and photos to oversized items.
  • Variable orientation
    An easel comes with the scanner, so you can use it vertically, horizontally, face-up or face-down, for large format or hard-to-capture items. Slides and negatives. Attach the transparent materials adapter (TMA) to capture images from slides and negatives. Use the HP Memories Disc Creator and HP Instant Share software to create and send fun--digital photo albums -- to family and friends. (The software is included.)

Included Software
The HP 4670 comes equipped with cool photo software already in place:

  • HP Photo & Imaging Software with HP Memories Disc Creator and HP Instant Share feature
  • HP Scanjet copy utility
  • Suite of electronic help tools
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • ArcSoft Panorama Maker

2-0 out of 5 stars Great design. Unsatisfactory execution.
I am a long-time HP printer and scanner user, and I really liked the design of this scanner. Besides having a knock-out appearance, I loved that you could fold it up and put it on a shelf. However, this scanner did not meet my needs and I ended up returning it.

I bought it for two applications: scanning documents and converting them to text with OCR, and scanning old family slides. This is NOT the scanner to buy for either application. The cheap OCR software included with the scanner is virtually useless. My typewritten documents came out hopelessly garbled - it would have taken more time to correct the mistakes that it would have to re-type them from scratch. If you plan to use this scanner for documents, plan to buy a better OCR program to go with it.

As for scanning slides, the first unit I bought had a loose connection from the scanner to the slide attachment, and I had to exchange it. The second unit worked, but the scan quality was just not what I was hoping for.

I returned the HP and bought an Epson 3170 instead. It comes with a far superior OCR program, and Photoshop Elements to boot. I'm not sure the slide scanning is much, if any better. Could be I'm just asking too much from a flatbed scanner...

1-0 out of 5 stars Great human interface, awful scanner
The mission: archive old family photos before my lil' daughter tears them up.
The obstacle: very little desk space
The solution: not this.

First, the USB interface is far sub-par. Check HP's troubleshooting on their web site; their solutions to communication problems range from "use a powered USB hub" to "never use a USB hub." Very helpful. As I'm writing right now I'm hearing the USB interface bob up and down as it tries to connect with the scanner. Not working. Plus not only can you not use a hub (I tried a D-Link USB2.0 4 port), you can't connect even to the same USB bus. So unless you've got a spare USB header free from your motherboard, you probably can't connect at all (Amendment: After several hours I discovered the problem - for me, the scanner had to be on a powered hub but my Logitech USB mouse could not coexist on the same hub. Now things appear to be working since the scanner is on the hub all by itself and the mouse has been plugged directly into the workstation. Still a bad USB implementation, tho).

Image quality is so-so. Not the greatest... flesh tones are too warm. I used Photoshop, WinXP's Scanner Wizard and HP's prepackaged software - the best results being the TWAIN driver in Photoshop.

Speaking of which, the bundled software was harsh to use. For some reason it decided I wanted to scan my text documents as embedded objects in RTF's. Wha? The HP software was not good at all. The actual TWAIN Photo & Imaging Directory scanning interface was fine however - just the actually document management software was clunky.

Beautiful looking and a real space saver, but if it doesn't work well then it's just an expensive window.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice looking CRUMMY scanner
Every photo we tried had speckles/dust all over them. I had no problems with the setup or banding (as others here did) but am returning the scanner because of pure quality issues

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice to look at, poor scan quality
I have an HP Scanjet 4C that has been a workhorse for the past 4-5 years (It still works, but my new Macintosh doesn't support SCSI devices). So, in deciding on a purchase I chose HP again out of loyalty. Set-up on the 4670 was easy, the software acceptable (typical of HPs), and the scanner itself was beautiful. Unfortunately all images that I scanned were plagued with 1/2" tall bands of light and dark areas. I found no way to remedy this and was forced to return the scanner for a refund.

3-0 out of 5 stars HP 4670 Scanner
I purchased this scanner for the flexability that the form factor offered, but I was frustrated by several aspects of the design, documentation and software. 1. The scanner has a long USB cable that pulls laterally from the USB prt on your PC. If you leave it connected for any length of time or accidenty pull on the cable the port is sure to be damaged. 2. the software is junk. It's hard to figure out, crashes and gives less than perfect results. To save a scan you have to click several times and rename the file completly (it does not remember the last file name and allow to you append a number to it, you have to reenter the name completly every time.) So doing lots of scans quickly becomes a chore. The dark areas of scans have scan lines through them. 3. There is no manual. Well, there is a manual, but it's worthless. Nothing explains how to use settings and how to change them. The Arcsoft panoramic software crashes when trying to save and takes a huge amount of time to stitch high res large files. ... Read more

I was worried about spending 500.00 for a printer, which I knew nothing about, but after reading reviews on Google.com I felt comfortable about doing it. The quality comes out great. You can't go wrong with getting this printer. One thing I did notice, it left a scratch on my prints, when I printed 4X6 images. I have not had a chance to see if it was a one time fluke or what.

5-0 out of 5 stars compatibility issue
I previously left a warning that this scanner was incompatible with Mac OS X Panther (10.3.x). However, HP has just released a driver for this scanner, and all compatibilty issues seem to be resolved. If you purchase this scanner within the next couple months (before the newer models with the driver included reach the outlets), you may find that you need to download the driver from www.hp.com. When I downloaded the driver, my computer mistook it as an Adobe Go Live file. If this happens, single click on the downloaded file and open it with Stuffit Expander (or similar program). This should work and give you a folder with several options. Rather than just the Mac OS 10.3 plug-in, select the icon for the general scanjet installer. If you have any other trouble, HP service should be able to help. Now that I finally got this contraption to work, I'm amazed at the quality and speed. You'll be very happy with this scanner.

5-0 out of 5 stars This scanner rocks!
I have thousands and thousands of family pictures and letters to
sort through and scan in, and my old scanner just wasn't up to
the task. I've been looking around for a faster scanner and this
one is defeinitely it. My old scanner took 80 seconds to scan a
color image at 300 dpi. This scanner takes maybe 8 seconds to do
the same, and the quality is better. I scan directly from Paint
Shop Pro using WIA, because I don't care much for the HP software
that comes with the scanner. I am in love with my new scanner
and have no doubt it was worth the extra money. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Fooled Twice, Shame on Me!
I went through two scanners and about 10 hours before I realized it wasn't me, my computer or the "energy" of my office that was a problem. This scanner has a serious defect in its ability to scan anything that isn't very white or COMPLETELY flat against the glass. Vertical banding of dark and light stripes appeared in every scan I undertook with both 4600's.

I was given the runnaround by the HP tech(?) and am going to have to wait until HP or some other company revamps the technical issues of what is otherwise an elegant and smart design.

As a point of comparison I did identical scans with my Epson Stylus CX5400 all in one and when I could get a scan that wasn't plagued with the vertical banding I found the Epsons color and clarity superior at identical resolutions. (sarcasm here) Mind you, the Epson is a slightly more expensive ($50) printer copier scanner while the HP is only a scanner. This HP does not do what it is advertised to do.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unknown device for my computer
This scanner does'nt work on an ASUS P4P800 motherboard. It is not recognized by Windows XP SP1. On other systems it works.
It is smart but only for the look, not for working.
It seems to be the same problem with HP 4700. I'm disapointed. don't stay in confidence with the nice look and the HP brand. This is not a good HP product, read the reviews on commerce sites.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great design, BUT... also, questionable marketing
Granted, this is a great scanner and an inventive design. For me, however, the design screams to be used in a mobile fashion. After all, the unit is touted as a great scanner for large or unwieldy items (as opposed to a strictly desktop scanner, for instance). In my case, I was looking to use it for copying from books for use in research. If you have tried copying from a book on a flatbed scanner, even one with an expandable lid, you'll know the difficulty involved. With the 4600, one can effectively crop the book in realtime, eliminating the guesswork. BUT, imagine my surprise to learn that the scanner comes with a wall wart AC transformer! The addition of a power adapter significantly undercuts the 4600's utility as a mobile scanner (e.g.--books in a library). As an owner of a usb-powered Canon flatbed scanner, it didn't even occur to me that the 4600 would be different. Note that the marketing materials leave the impression that the 4600 is usb-powered. It touts a "combination usb/AC cable", a phrase that is certainly open to interpretation. In this case, it isn't even true: at some point, the "combination cable" _must_ split into a piece leading to the pc and a piece leading to the AC adapter. What is the advantage in this??? Also, the marketing materials cryptically list among the contents this line: AC adapter (where applicable). What does this even mean? A big thumbs down to HP for crippling a potentially great scanner, and attempting to hide its true identity. It's great as a desktop scanner, but there are loads of competitors that are cheaper in that class.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT when scanning 3D documents
As an avid scrapbooker and scrapbook business owner, scanning images that are "lumpy and bumpy" is next to impossible and believe me, I've tried every possible scanner out there. One of HP's ScanJet's did the trick for a while but it took up a majority of my desk. NOW I have a scanner that allows me to scan all my "lumpy and bumpy" objects with ease. Having a tough time finding something to scan something larger than 8x10? That's alright! This scanner comes with stitching software that gives PERFECT, SEAMLESS stitching. Awesome, awesome scanner. The best part is that I can stand it upright and store it beside my monitor so that I have more room for .... well .... more junk on my desk! :) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Scanner For The Amateur Photographer
I just purchased this scanner to replace a slow, unwieldy HP 5300C. After 1 week, here's what I think.
===============================================================
PROs:

1. Slim form factor.
2. Good quality photograph scans. Maybe not for a professional, but for us amateurs, it rocks!
3. Very quick scanning
4. Negative scannning possible with included adapter.
5. Canoscan software definitely a cut above the norm
6. Windows XP installation is fast and simple.
-->a. Install Canoscan Drivers and software, reboot THEN
-->b. plug scanner into nearest HighSpeed USB (USB 2.0) port
-->c. You're good to go!
7. Full Photoshop Elements 2.0 included
================================================================
CONs:

1. A bit noisy
2. Some software supplied as "SE" or limited versions
3. Scanning Kodak APS film pictures can be tricky due to the
nonstandard print sizes.
================================================================
A final piece of advice - make sure you acquire the latest Canon software from the Canon, USA website.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fast and Convenient
The Canoscan LiDE 80 is easy to use for a variety of applications and the USB Hi-Speed (no longer USB2) interface is super fast and convenient since it not only is the data link, but supplies power to the scanner. If your power hub is as congested as mine, you'll appreciate this bonus. The LiDE 80 comes standard with a film adapter unit so you can scan 35 mm film or unmounted slide film. although the literature claims the film scanner runs at 2400 x 4800 DPI, I don't buy it. My Nikon fim scanner is 2900 DPI and gives MUCH better scans of 35 mm film. No contest. Then again, it was quite a bit more (4X)expensive than the LiDE 80 and only scans film...

The LiDE 80 includes software for automatic retouching of scratches and dust - and it also now has grain and fading correction. I tried these features on color photos taken over 50 years ago and was pleasantly surprised with the results. Overall, this is a nice package that goes well beyond the typical bargain scanner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great and Easy to use.
Old scanner(4yrs. and it died) was a general HP not for pic's or slides. Decided I want to copy my pic's & slides onto CD. This scanner works great with a great price. And it has a nice software package. Cannot compare to a high price scanner but I am very pleased the the results that I am getting from my pic's, old negatives and slides. I am using the software with W98SE and I have the scanner plugged into a Belkin hup. I also have the Canon printer i860 which does very nice pic's.

5-0 out of 5 stars easy for computer dummies like me
Short and sweet I'm just a guy with a computer no fancy computer job no fancy education in computers. I read the manuals but they are not my cup of tea. This scanner took me about 2 days to really get the hang of it. Which was a short time compared to what most of this stuff takes for me. If your like me just go to cannon on your menu open canno scan tool box, click save and start there.

4-0 out of 5 stars Re:- Using 4-hub USB adaptor
I plugged my LiDE 80 into a cheap 4-hub USB adaptor and it is producing excellent quality scans.
My only reservation is that scanning via the single-touch button produces a reddish tinge, whereas scans to the computer seldom needs adjustment, but if they do, the desired result is easily obtained via Adobe 2.0 (supplied with the scanner).
Hope this helps! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars HP ScanJet 8250 - Document feeder jams too much
Don't buy this product if you really need the document scanner to scan photos. It consistantly jams and misaligns photos. The software included and other scanning functions work great, but the document loader is not good for photos.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid like the plague
The main problem with this scanner is its below average scanning software. The scanning area of the preview is a mere 15% of the screen (and if you'd like a close up, prepare for a rescan of the document!). And forget about using a third party scanning applications, nobody but HP will be able to use this piece of junk.

Contrast in the scans are by default bad, making the content of the document difficult to read. You can adjust the contrast in the first page (although it is a time consuming process, and since the document scan is a mere 15% of the total screen area, you are left second guessing the optimal settings). But believe it or not, by the time you scan your second page, the settings will go back to default, forcing you to readjust them.

If you think you can scan a document to a third party application and manipulate it with it via TWAIN (such as Windows Imaging), and save yourself the pain of having to deal with HP Scan, think again. You will end up with a beautiful picture of THE LAST PAGE ("oh yes, this is by design" - HP Technician).

The ADF is prone to paperjams, and they are tough and time consuming to clear. Only the smoothest paper will allow pass through without problems.

I open a case with HP support (case no. 7161364157). They told me a technician would call back (this was a month ago). Still waiting for the call.

HP really dropped the ball with this twinky. If you are planning to buy a document scanner, this is not the way to go. If you are planning to buy a photograph scanner, I suggest one of Epson's Perfection scanners, and save yourself 500 dolars worth of junk.

5-0 out of 5 stars Previous Reviewer Needs Correction
After reading the review "correction and complaint" I was trying to figure out where this person was coming from. He/she is incorrect on all their points.

1) The color rendition is incredible and looks nearly identical to the item scanned.

2) You do not have to choose the image size. When I scan a letter document, the scanner knows it. And when I scan a legal document, it knows that too. I don't even know how to trick the thing.

3) As for the grayscale having to be chosen every time: Under "scan settings" you can choose your default settings. You can tell it to default to 1 bit or 8 bit grayscale, or many different color options. This will be the default setting if you elect not to change them every time you scan.

I wonderered if this reviewer had just opened the box and didn't bother to read the manual or play with the software settings before posting. Or maybe he's a Canon person.

Oh well. Just thought I'd dispell some untruths on the scanjet 8250. In my opinion and use, it has been a great, full featured scanner!

2-0 out of 5 stars correction and complaint
The technical data is wrong. The scanning area is 8 1/2 by 14. The auto document feeder scans both sides.
The color scans are below average. It's amazing how distorted and super saturated the colors are, considering the price. It took me hours to fiddle with all the slide bars and dials to come up with an image that more closely represents that actual colors of the image. It took 5 seconds for my $80 Canon flatbed to come up with an almost perfect image. You would think at this price, HP would have spent a little more time fine tuning the software. When scanning on the HP, you have to choose the size of the image every time you use the auto feeder otherwise everything comes out legal size. The default choice is true color, it is necessary to choose grayscale for every scan if black and white documents are going to be scanned. Now let me figure this out, this scanner is aimed at offices primarily for document scans and grayscale has to be chosen every time? The color scanning is so poor, why is it the default if that is not what this scanner is made for. I have to pick grayscale every time I scan. That is a hassle. You can make a custom profile that can be programmed to the buttons on the front of the scanner, but the buttons don't work for Paperport which comes with the scanner. The auto feeder only reads one side at a time. It flips the pages over and reads the other side. It is cool to watch, but I wonder how long the intricate workings of this mechanism will last... The pages have to be reasonably sturdy and thick otherwise the papers jam and everything has to be rescanned. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use!
I'm very impressed by the straight forward design and navigation of the HP PhotoSmart 7960. Very easy to use and figure out, even if you're a technophobe like myself. Out of the box it was easy to set up with the step-by-step poster that they provided. Right away I was printing vacation photos straight from my compact flash (with the printer's default settings, without being hooked up to a computer) and I got really good printouts.

Pros: The LCD display is bigger than most digital cameras and is very clear, navagation is straight forward and easy to figure out, the color range is good (considering there's "8 colors"), very easy to use.

Cons: It comes with color cartridges that combine colors (CMY, Light-CMY, Grey or Black) so if you run out of one color you have to replace the whole thing. On glossy photo paper the overall color tends to be a bit darker. And at the moment it's a bit pricy compared with it's competition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everyone should have one!
Combine this printer with the new HP Premium Plus photo paper and you would swear that your prints were from film! I recieved this printer as a gift this weekend and spent today in heaven playing with it. First off, it is the easiest printer I have ever dealt with! You don't even need to have a computer hooked up! The panel is intuitive; but, gives you a lot of control including print size, # of copies, zoom, and rotate. And everything you do to the photo is shown on the screen which adjusts to whatever angle is easiest for you to view. I was printing using the low-end black ink instead of the higher quality grayscale ink and I am still amazed at the quality of the prints! If you are looking for an amazing printer which is easy to operate, this is the one you want!

4-0 out of 5 stars I love my HP Photosmart 7960
I was looking for an 8 1/2 by 11 inch borderless printer for producing high quality double sided product brochures. I bought an Epson Stylus Photo R800. WRONG thing to buy. It does 8 1/2 by 11 and it does borderless printing, but NOT on 8 1/2 by 11 media. The largest borderless print media is 8 by 10, and no one makes that in two sided print surfaces. I returned the Epson and got the HP. What a relief, it does exactly what I want and is not finicky, lots of options for acceptable paper. I did have some trouble installing software however. I had to shut down and remove all other USB devices and then load the printer before it would install properly. Otherwise 5 stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer
One thing a lot of people do not realize is that the reason why the ink cartridges are so expensive is b/c the manufacturers sell the printers usually at lower than cost and then they recoup their sales through the accessories such as paper and ink cartridges. Yes, it may seem to be unscrupulous, but HP and all the others are in the business of making money. As for the person who had problems printing envelopes, remove all the paper and use the paper guides and resize them to the envelope. I've had no trouble printing envelopes with my 7960.
One feature that people have also failed to mention is even though the memory card slots are there so you don't need the computer to print your photos, they also save you the trouble of attaching your camera to the computer since you can move your pictures from your memory card to your hard drive since the printer also acts as a removable drive.
everyone has been blown away when I tell them that I printed these pictures at home, and i find that the pictures that it prints are better than when I took my memory card to wal mart. Plus, it was quicker. It was no problem using my Sony digital camera with my HP printer.
One more thing, buy the printer at Sam's or Wal-Mart as it is only $187.

3-0 out of 5 stars tested 3 of them
I purchased a 7960 about a week ago. It did a great job right up to the point of ejecting the photo from the printer. The last inch of the photo was marked/scratched like a roller was stuck on the paper feed. I took it back and was given another printer, same thing. This time I went to another location, thinking maybe they got a bad batch of them but......same thing.
I traded up to a Canon I9900, best move i've made in a long time. The Canon is the smart purchase without a doubt. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

If you love to play with your digital camera but also need a serious printer that can get your office reports looking great, consider this Epson all-in-one. Based on the engines of the popular Epson Stylus Photo R300 printer and the Epson Perfection 2400 scanner, the Stylus Photo RX500 adds standalone copying (no PC required) and saves valuable desk space compared to separate components. It is both versatile and reliable, enabling you to scan photos, text, or negatives; to make copies; and to print anything from borderless 4-by-6-inch photos to business envelopes.

The flatbed scanner offers 2,400 dpi optical (9,600 dpi interpolated) resolution and 48-bit color to bring your scanned images rich detail and crisply defined color separation. Archive your family photos, save your favorite articles on your hard drive, or assemble a slide show. You can also save your scans directly to a compatible memory card, even without a PC.

Instant copies can be created in four different resolutions--top speed for black copies is 10 copies per minute. When printing from your system, the RX500 produces black documents in draft mode up to 17 ppm, 16 ppm for color. Take your time and seek perfection with the optimized 5,760 x 1,440 dpi mode, for beautifully sharp photos. In a faster mode, borderless 4-by-6-inch prints appear in as little as 37 seconds. Insert your digital camera'scompatible memory card and print your evening's shots while bypassing your system. Just use the photo proof sheet mode to select only images you need.

Consumable costs are low, thanks to six separate high-yield ink tanks--you can expect up to 630 pages from the black cartridge and 430 pages from the color cartridges, based on 5% page coverage. The modern silver and black casing adds a sleek touch to your office space, while the included USB cable couldn't be more convenient. Epson provides a one-year warranty covering parts and service; Epson Exchange service is included.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5-month Review: 99.9% Perfection
My original review is further down, written a few days after setting up the printer. I'll now relate my 5-month experience.

The machine has been flawless. It's one of the best experiences I've ever had with an electronics device, and I am a gadget freak. I've printed approx. 30 greeting cards and 200 photos, from 4x6 through 8x10. Photos copy extremely well with the flatbed scanner, and I use it to make accurate copies of originals. For even better results, tweak your original photo on the computer and print it using your favorite image editing software.

You may rarely use the negative-adapter, but if you only have a negative and need a print, it is a godsend. High quality scans, for sure.

One ink cartridge just fell under 20% full (light Cyan), so the ink lasts a long time. You can find great deals on original Epson ink on the web (try Amazon first). I bought a whole set of refills on the cheap.

I mainly use it to print digital photos (4x6 mostly) from my Canon S400 Digital Elph, and to print greeting cards. I make remarkable cards for pennies compared to $2 - $5 at the greeting card racks.

Paper: Extremely high quality prints on Epson, HP, Kodak and Ilford Galerie photo papers. I love Ilford paper. You can find great deals online for photo paper. 200 sheets of high gloss for under $20. Don't penalize yourself on quality - get the high gloss.

I have a minolta 11x17 b/w laser printer, so I don't use the RX500 for most document printing. Toner is cheaper than ink, and laser is faster than inkjet, especially for long documents.

The Epson RX600 recently came out. Same as RX500, but has an LCD preview window. Handy if you print right from the digital card reader. You can get an external Epson LCD for as low as $18, so the extra $100 for the RX600 is a bit tough to swallow. Deals are popping up on the RX500. It's still the best value of any multi-function device.

*** Original Review ***

I was looking for a color printer, as I only had a b/w laser printer. Since I have owned digital cameras since 1999, it was time to get a photo quality printer. I Decided I wanted it to scan and copy as well. The multi-function device (MFD) was much better than in previous-generation products. It had to have separate ink cartridges (better value on ink), which ruled out HP, and almost everything but Canon and Epson devices.

After exhaustive research and showroom testing at a local retailer, I bought the Epson CX6400. Great value. It was a 4-ink system (not 6), but the DuraBright inks were getting pretty good reviews. I stayed up until 1am playing with my new toy. On premium glossy paper, the prints were very good. However, they had a matte, or maybe a semi-gloss cast to them, even on the best glossy paper. Other photo printers (Epson R300) delivered a glossier, crisper photo-processing feel to them. I could live with that for the price and features the CX6400 had. The 6-ink system was not in the cards for me if I wanted a MFD flatbed device.

The next morning, while reading the Sunday paper, I saw an ad for a brand new MFD by Epson. Just came out. It was the RX500. Here's the bottom line. It has the same 6-ink system and print engine as the beautiful-printing R300/M, and it is a flatbed MFD. Nirvana!

I exchanged the unit the next morning. Wow! The printouts are just like a photo lab with my 4 megapixel shots. Even my older 2 megapixel shots looked great.

You can do almost everything on the device without a computer, as it has card slots for almost every media type. When you print from the computer, the software lets you tweak the quality even higher.

Liked the Epson CX6400. Love the RX500. The RX500 is the best of both worlds...

The 4x6 prints look incredible on premium glossy paper, and very nice on plain, bright paper. 8x10 and 8.5x11 also look great - just like a photo lab. And you can print borderless prints, without perforated paper. Ideal!

Speed is pretty good. Larger prints, and highest quality obviously take longer to print, but it's well worth it. Surf the web while you are waiting.

The bundled imaging software (PhotoImpression) is easy to use and does a great job. You can go from a digital photo to a beautiful print in minutes. The amount of control is overwhelming, but fortunately the standard setting doa great job. Go with the default settings unless you have a special need. Just set the paper type and size, and you are off to the races.

It's faster start-to-finish when you plug your memory card directly into the device. If you have a few minutes to boot up your computer, you'll have more control and you can bump the quality up a bit. Honestly, it was hard to tell the difference, though. Tech specs say there is a difference in resolution, but if I'm in a hurry, I print without the computer.

The Rx500 also scans and prints existing photos very well, as well as a magazine cover I used as a test. New on this device (and an exclusive) is a transparency and slide scanner. I scanned and printed from a 35mm positive, and a film negative. The quality is outstanding. Now I can zip out a print from any old negative or slide I have stored away in boxes. Way cool.

The only "negative" or tradeoff, is that the ink will smudge if it gets wet. That's the price you pay for the 6-ink system. As long as you get your prints into a photo album, or under glass in a frame, it is a non-issue. I'll take the tradeoff rather than settle for lesser quality in a smudge-resistant ink.

Buy the RX500. You truly get the best of all worlds. A superior photo printer, with the convenience and ultimate flexibility of a an excellent scanner/copier...

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Ink Thrify, but Superb Photos
I wanted the best affordable multifunction photo printer I could buy, and I believe that I got it. Using epson borderless photo paper most people can not tell the photos were printed at home, or even from a digital camera, even with 5x7's, (I have not been printing 8x10's). USE EPSON PHOTO PAPER, DO NOT USE KODAK! The photo's I have been printing were taken with a Pentax Optio330, 3.34 megapixel. I can only imagine how good they would be with a better camera.

The photocopy functions work very well, just make sure you select the right setting, (photo, text, ect.). You can also scan negitives and slides. They come out great. It can scan at a resolution higher that my computer can handle, and I have a fairly good computer. Don't worry, you set the resolution and can get a very good scan with most computers.

It does go through a lot of ink, and the ink is on the expensive side. I have kept my old printer for text and everyday use. All in all, I love this printer!

*The photos on the much more expensive Kodak Premium Picture Paper looked like digital prints. It did not even look like I used the same printer. Plus the paper is not as glossy, much thinner, does not print borderless, and everybodys skin looked rather blue. Use Epson premium photo paper, it is much better, at least with this printer. Also Epson paper has the same look and feel as quality glossy prints from a photo lab.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for photos, decent for text.
I bought this printer after doing a thoroug search on the net. I rate is as quite good, but there are things that could be improved.

Software installed great; it was fast, and not too big.

Copying photos as a stand alone is excellent, but I noticed some greenish overcast. But I intent to scan everything into photoshop first, so I can live with that.

OCR software is quite effective and user friendly. I already like this one.

Cartridges are quite expensive, and it seems to be going through them rather quickly, but still acceptable.

The scanner is perfect. It has more resoulution than I can use.

The software works quite good, and it's user friendly, but there could be some more explanation in the manunal - for example I could not turn on the "dust and scratches option" in the scanner software, but I have to try higher resolution and see if the function becomes enabled.

The only major drawback I noticed was the text quality - I compared it to the printout from my HP cp 1700 at work, and Epson does not even come close.... mind you, the HP is a pricey unit able to print 13X17 pages. Having said that, the print quality is decent enough, but I feel a bit dissappointed.

I am using a USB 2.0, but the time it takes to start printing is not too impressive (on the other hand, some files are huge)

the unit is compact, appears to be well made and mechanically works very well.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it so far! I couldn't wait for the newer model.
The newer model of this item I couldn't find anywhere or was priced too high. I was also going to go for the R800 but that was pricey or out of stock. I couldn't wait any longer to get a color printer to compliment my high res camera so I figured I get this one for now since it was pretty cheap. Well I love it so far! Pictures are better than photo quality with the photo and I am totally satified so far. I love it and it doesn't take up alot of space with the built in scanner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super All-In-One!
This Epson all-in-one is great! It replaces an older scanner and separate printer. I do "low budget" digital photography and digital art. This machine will do my artwork as well as text documents. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Reasonable price, GREAT scans!
This is the big brother/newer model of the PrimeFilm 3600; please see my review of PrimeFilm 3600 for starters -- same included software, same physical housing.
The incorporation of Digital ICE3 into a basically very good scanner has turned this into a spectacular film and slide scanner!
Speed: With all Digital ICE3 turned off, the 3650 is somewhat faster than the 3600 (which I think of as "slow") -- making the 3650 "average" in speed (subjectively).With DICE3 turned on, it is about the same speed as the 3600 due to the increased processing required.
Scan Quality: Outstanding!Using the DICE3 has made scanning my 30 year old negatives painless, and my newer negatives effortless.Most discount photofinishers these days use machines that tend to scratch negatives; what used to be a painstaking process to remove the scratches and dust is now done by the scanner -- very effectively!Only complaint: the settings for Digital ROC (color correction) and GEM (grain removal) are a subjective 1-100 with no hint at what the numbers mean other than the default settings.Experimentation is necessary, although defaults seem to work well.
This scanner has NONE of the power and startup "eccentricities" of my 3600, making it a pleasure to use at all times.
I'd still like to see SilverFast Ai bundled, but that would boost the cost significantly.Cyberview X, the included software, is nice, but doesn't allow RAW saves - which is a prerequisite for archiving negative scans, especially with an infrared channel that can boost the file to 64-bit (16-bit each for RGB and infrared).It does, however, make the scanning of a 36-frame negative roll very easy and almost fully automated.I recommend VUESCAN (www.hamrick.com) for a full-featured, extremely customizable scanning program at a reasonable price.
Overall, you won't do better on a film scanner than the 3650 - even the most uninformed novice can use it to scan scores of negatives and slides without any technical knowledge, and come out with fantastic scans! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent all-around printer
I bought this for my wife to supplement our P-400 (8x10). We went digital almost 3 years ago with the Olympus C4040 and P-400 and I was looking for something to do 4x6s w/o having to cut 8x10s down all the time. I've always been partial to Olympus, having worked extensively with the OM-1 as a photographer in the early 90s. We were very happy with the results we received from the P-400 and I have to say the prints from the P-10 are stunning, if not better. The cost per print is about 39ยข, which is a bit more than taking it to some of the local pharmacies (though we live in the middle of nowhere, we'd more than make up for it in time and gas). Plus there's something to be said for the convenience of printing at home. Print time is reasonable, what you'd expect from a dye sub. The greatest benefit to me is that you don't get the diffusion dot patterns you find with the ink-jet "photo" printers. If you want "photos", dye sub is the only way to go -- and the bottom line is the P-10 gives the quality I want at a reasonable price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little printer!!
I've had this printer for a couple months now and would recommend it highly for anyone with occasional, low volume printing needs. The prints are indistinguishable from lab prints when printing high resolution shots and have a high quality gloss finish. Because it's a dye-sub printer, there's no pixelation as with many dot-matrix printers. Set-up and use is easy. In fact, I keep mine disconnected and stowed most of the time. It only takes 1 minute to plug it in and connect it. My only complaints are that there's no integrated imaging software to simplify printing (I use Powerpoint with good results) and the paper and dye-sub pack are a bit expensive (equates to 65 cents per print if you order the 4x6 kit for 100 prints). But if you only need a few good prints on an occasional basis, this printer is tops.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cost per print
I searched around and found the least expensive place to purchase cartridges for my Olympus P10. I bought enough for 200 4x6 prints.The price per 4x6 turned out to be app. 42 cents per print. I can go down to my local Walgeens and get prints for 29 cents. I'm not certain about quality yet, but at 42 cents, one has to be careful, or the whole thing can cease being fun.

3-0 out of 5 stars WARNING: Not Macintosh compatible
You have to read the fine print on the Olympus web site very carefully to discover that this printer is not compatible with the Macintosh OS. According to their Technical Support, there are no plans to develop a driver for the Mac.

I am able to use mine as a PictBridge printer, printing directly from the camera. Its prints are fair to good, but not excellent. But since I cannot print my stored images from my computer, I will sell the P-10 and buy something else, and it probably will not be manufactured by Olympus.

4-0 out of 5 stars Olympus P-10 first impressions
Today I got to play with an Olympus P-10 printer I just received. It comes with a starter pack of ribbon and paper good for 5 4x6 pictures.

The printer uses Dye-Sublimation technology. It prints Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and a special overcoat layer that makes prints fade resistant. You can connect the printer to your PC with a USB cable, or, if your camera supports PictBridge technology, you can connect the camera to the printer directly, and print without PC.

There are two paper sizes supported by the printer 4" x 6" and 3.5" x 5". You have to buy special paper, which comes with ribbon. What I like the most about this printer, is that it produces borderless pictures without the need to tear off perforation or anything like that. When it spits out a picture it's just like from your local drug store - glossy, and ready to use. Or, if you prefer, you can specify to print the images with white border.

The printer is very easy to use, fast, and looks superb. I welcome the fact that it doesn't require any nozzle cleaning, head adjusting, or much preparation at all.

But now is the most important question. How good can it print? I run through the supplied pack very quickly, printing 5 pictures from my collection. Two of the pictures I printed before, using Epson Stylus Photo 820 Printer, Epson Inks, and Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper. The ink-jet clearly had an advantage rendering light tones, seeing as it was a 6-color printer. The Olympus, unfortunately, really struggles with rendering light blue. The lighter shades of sky don't look all well to me. Another area where I wouldn't mind to see improvement is shadow detail. Perhaps we are ready for 6 or 7 color Dye-Sub printers, 3 colors may be not adequate.

Off course just 5 pictures is not enough to get familiar with the printer, I am sure, as I gain experience with it and learn to play with settings, I should be able to foresee difficult to print areas of images, and perhaps correct them in order to get better prints.

Overall the printer produces very nice results. And I can see that it will be much easier to maintain and use than an ink-jet. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Rather Impressive Machine . . .
This is another fine product from Hewlett Packard. It is a scaled down version of the older "d" series and the current 7100 series all-in-ones. While it is a quality machine for home office/home business applications, it is also a 3rd generation HP photo printer, like that in the current line of HP Photosmart printers.

The 6110 caters to quite a large audience. It has most of the features of the HP 2210 (it is lacking the 6-in-one memory card reader), but it has several things that its comparably priced little brother does not. It has a form feeder, which really makes faxing and copying easier. It has speed dialing capabilities, and has an 80 page fax memory.

The 6110 has the ability to scan at 1200 x 2400 d.p.i., which is on par with their top-of-the-line stand alone scanners. It can print 4X6 borderless photos, black & white at 19 p.p.m, and color at an impressive 14 p.p.m.

The only drawbacks for this machine are that it uses the #56, #57, and #58 cartridges that require swapping between the #56 & #58 for photo printing, and that the capacities of these cartridges are less than the ones used in the 7100.

5-0 out of 5 stars great for a small business.
We bought this printer/copier/fax/scanner as an addition to our business. I didn't expect much, as my experience with computers and peripherals is in the "throw the [thing] out the window" category.

This machine is fast, intuitive, set up is a breeze (on xp). The color printer is pretty good, actually. You get nice photos on the right paper with the right (ok price) cartridge. We now only use our other photo printer for demanding very high quality images. Otherwise this one does the job on a daily basis. We also threw out our headache fax machine and for regular day to day scans, we don't need the peripheral quickie scanner at this point. And the photocopier is good, remembering its an inkjet output, not laser. Does most work-related thing ok.

Immediate noticable minuses:
Limited size of scanner (only 8-1/2x11)
Color printing is a bit slow on hi-res.

I would definitely recommend it for the smaller business or that convenient extra printer/copier/fax/scanner within a larger office or a home-working type.
This is not a top-quality anything. Quality on all the sections doesnt match other top peripherals, as one should expect, but this machine is really a matter of convenience and at a good price..., and it's not to bulky. Good inexpensive product, I'd say.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality Design and Customer Support
I have owned the HP 6110 All-In-One for over a year now and have experienced numerous problems with the product. First the machine has a propensity to "disconnect" from the PC for no reason, forcing a reboot of the PC to reconnect. The HP "Customer Service" people and I use that term loosely indicated that they had never had anyone report this problem. I told the Customer Service Manager that this was an obvious software issue, which he denied was the case. Yet, a few months later there was a software patch on their website to fix this problem. (The patch cut the frequency of this problem somewhat, but did not fix the problem.) Second, the paper handler picks up two pieces of paper frequently when performing double sided printing (which was the primary reason I bought the product in the first place), resulting in pages for a two sided document. Third, the ink cartridges are of small capacity and have to refilled or changed often, which is expensive. The scan and copy functions work satisfactorily, but the printer function is of very poor reliability.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another Reason to Use a Mac!
Good things for smart people! This machine is a compromise, of course, but, all things considered, It's great.I would give it 5 stars, but, it doesn't do all things as well as stand alones. All of you complaining, I see, are using windows. I know the pain... Also, about HP's having "carriage" troubles, that's very simply a cleaning job. The clear tape that runs the length of the carriage, Keep it clean!
Other than that, HP has it all over Epson (stupid dirt and dust collecting paper feed), it's a good professional quality machine, and you can't beat that duplex (print on both sides) option. A no brainer!
I've owned them all, and needed an all around, I'm happy I stuck to HP.

4-0 out of 5 stars You can't go wrong with HP
Don't be mistaken... this is a "low end" printer. But if you're on a budget this is a great deal for less than $100. I am very satisfied with all printing applications. The only real negative aspect for me is it's kind of noisy when feeding the paper through, but is worth it for the speed and quality (and price). Be aware that this printer connects to your computer strictly through USB connection (no parallel). Expect to pay an additional $25-30 for the USB cable if you don't already have one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer for a Great Price!
As a poor college student needing a printer I was looking for quality for the best price possible. I knew that HP was a reputable brand as far as quality goes, so that's what swayed me in that area. For photo printing I was immensely impressed with the quality and detail. With the right resolution they look as though done by a professional photographer. The only downside is the consumption and price of the ink and the fact that you need to buy the connecting cable separate, but considering the price of the printer I'm not too miffed. It also doesn't require a lot of space. Score is 4 out of 5 stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great basic printer for the money
I bought the HP 5150 as a replacement for a 7+-year old, broken HP ink jet, and I'm very happy with it. I use it to print a lot of envelopes and haven't had any problems with the alignment getting messed up like I did with my old printer. The guides adjust smoothly (unlike my old printer) and it prints quickly enough for my own personal use - faster than my old printer since the 5150 uses a USB cable (I saved $15 on that and bought it at Target). It was really simple to set up, too, and I only have a basic knowledge of computers.

I don't plan on using it to print photos, but I understand the cartridges switch out and you can print quality color photos. The cartridges were a bit tricky to snap in.

I am comfortable with HP quality, so I didn't consider any other brands. The price seemed reasonable.

Overall, I'm very happy with this printer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ours just died one day
We had our 5150 for three months and it conked out one day in the middle of a job. We called HP and were told, "Maybe it's the power cord. We'll send you a new one." That was wishful thinking, and we ended up having to send the printer back to HP in exchange for a brand-new one. It was a hassle, though, dealing with HP's computer system (ironic).

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Compact Printer
I recently bought my HP DeskJet 5150 as a replacement for an elderly HP inkjet printer that gave up the ghost. In general I have been very pleased with the 5150. It had flawless installation (I was ready to print ten minutes after I opened the box) and setup, and has excellent print characteristics in both B&W and color. It is very capable, starts up fast, has a quick throughput rate, and superior graphics resolution.

I have framed a couple of color prints printed on the 5150 (on HP photo paper), as they are equal to conventional photographic printing to the naked eye. My only caveat on the photo printing is that I can't vouch for the life of the prints, so far so good, but I know that some inkjet prints fade badly over time.

I am pretty hard on the 5150. Because I am in in the throes of researching and writing my Master's thesis right now, I am printing copious amounts, and running at least 500 pages a week through the 5150, and thus far have had no problems with it.

The one minor and completely unanticipated, annoyance I have with the 5150 is the shelf that holds the printed sheets is too short. HP provides a rickety pull out/fold over contraption to help hold printed work, but in my experience it is inconvenient at best (it almost doubles the frontal area of the printer), and is a real space hog on my desk.

Aside from that one small critique (which is the reason I gave it four instead of five stars) I think the HP 5150 is an excellent little printer at a bargain basement price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Get this printer!
Get this printer if you're in the market for a printer that will handle text documents efficiently as well as print top quality photographs,(...).

I printed out a borderless photo on the supplied sample of 4 x 6 paper and the quality is unbelievable. Just simply stunning.

And even web pages and text documents on plain paper at the "standard" setting look good enough to eat.

I bought this to replace a two year old Epson C80 whose black ink nozzle had become irreparably clogged. The eventual clogging of these Epson inkjets is a widely reported problem. Whether using generic inks (I used Carrot Ink cartridges) contributes to this or not, I don't know, but it's moot anyway, since Epson ink cartridges were so outrageously expensive, I couldn't have used the printer without using cheaper generic inks.

The Canon is one of the most satisfying hardware purchases I've made.

Other advantages:

It handles text quickly and beautifully.

It has a 5 cartridge ink system with separate blacks for text and photo and the Canon cartridges are affordable.

It's unbelievably quiet, especially in--yes--"quiet mode" (which does reduce printing speed a little (not noticeably to me).

The photo paper tray for 4 x 6 sheets works great.

The print head can be replaced.

Additional advantages if you're a Mac user:

It will work wirelessly with an Airport Extreme Base Station and it works beautifully with OS 10.3 (Panther).

Disadvantages:

Yes, there is no USB cable. I guess I can understand this, since most inkjet printers can't be repaired, and have to be disposed of, so I guess Canon figures you'll have a USB cable sitting around.

Yes, you have to install the print head, and I was a little fearful snapping it in but I had no problems.

And yes, you have to align the print head, but you can do an automatic alignment using the printer utility software.

For Mac users, at least, don't waste time installing the printer driver from the CD, as it is out of date. Download the latest driver from the Canon website. And be sure to repair permissions after installing the driver, as many of them were out of whack after the driver installation.

All in all, this is one of the most satisfying hardware purchases I've made.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a deal !!!
This is my first photo printer. I purchased at AMAZON.com for $ 123.00. ( that included free shipping - thanks, AMAZON)

I am so delighted with the print quality and speed. I did my homework online reading many product reviews of the various photo printers available. I wanted the best quality without all the bells and whistles i.e. displays, card readers etc.
This printer does a fantastic job ! Just be aware that all paper is not created equal. The sample pack of CANON paper made extraordinary photos. I did my own tests with other brands of 8 1/2 X 11 glossy photo brand papers. I shopped at BJs and COSTCO and ended up buying over $100 of 7 brands of paper. Among those were : KODAK, HP, POLAROID and other lesser known brands. The best performance was by the POLAROID brand supergloss from COSTCO at 19.99 for 120 sheets. The POLAROID paper was equal to, maybe even a little better than the CANON sample pack.
One other recommendation - buy your replacement ink from inkgrabber.com. Very inexpensive and good quality ink.

You will be happy with this CANON i860 printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional looking pics!!!!!
I am absolutely amazed and impressed with the i860. Canon includes all the ink and a few sheets of their photo paper pro so that you can print out photos from the get go. I gave it a whirl and not only was it simple, the photos came out looking like processed film photos! I was so excited I showed them to my husband and he agreed, even on the lowest setting for standard photo prints, the prints looked awesome!

The camera I am currently using is the Fuji Finepix S3000. Excellent camera, that takes excellent photos. The end result used in conjuction with this printer is professional looking photos.

Beyond photo printing, regular printing is awesome too. I used cheap paper from Walmart to print out everyday stuff and it looks great. I haven't had it long enough to know how quickly the ink will go, but the ink cartridges for this are very cheap in comparison to others, plus with individual tanks, you only replace the color that is empty. Plus, there are also many different remanufactured cartridges out there for this printer, so you can get ink very cheaply.

I would recommend this printer to ANYONE I know. I really am enjoying it and am always looking for things to print!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A very nice printer but....
A very nice printer but it's already obsolete. Canon is replacing this model (i860) with the soon to be released PIXMA iP4000 Photo Printer. The iP4000 will be even faster and feature automatic duplex printing. The iP4000 will have the same street price $149 USD. Hopefully, the quality of the iP4000 will exceed that of the i860 but its anyone's guess at this point. If you're considering the i860 I'd suggest that you wait a month until the iP4000 is released especially now since the $30 rebate on the i860 has expired (July 17). The other option is buying the i960 instead. Decisions, decisions...

5-0 out of 5 stars Impressive Printer
I purchased this printer based on the top Consumers Reports rating it received plus the excellent reviews I've read of Amazon's customers reviews. Believe me, all the good comments about this printer are right on. It has worked perfectly and prints outstanding documents. I have not yet ventured into printing photo prints, but with the recent purchase of a digital camera, I am confident it will produce the excellent results I expect. Without hestitation, I endorse all the 5 star ratings this printer has received. Purchase with confidence. ... Read more
