This is the perfect printer for my needs. One of my hobbies is stamp collecting, and I create specialized album pages for myself and others, and I often use pages up to 11" x 17". This machines handles them very nicely, especially since the straight-through paper path does not choke on heavy stock. The PrintCD feature is almost essential to me for many purposes, and is superior to any alternative, since many CD drives jam on paper labels. The icing on the cake is the wireless feature, since the unit is too large to fit on my desk with other equipment. I really like the high resolution of the images at large sizes. Another plus for me is that it uses the same ink cartridges my other large format printer uses, saving money on spares. The set-up was fast and simple, too. I love it.
I have an HP printer and have bought only HP toner for it. I've heard good and bad from people who've bought off-brand toners instead, and I use mine for business, so I don't want to take any chances. I'm not sure I really get 1500 pages from a cartridge (who actually counts?)--I might--, but I do always take it out of the machine near the end of its life when I see the print getting too light and rock it back and forth a number of times to more evenly redistribute the contents. That simple action easily buys me another 100 to 150+ copies. The cartridges are rather expensive (and the price varies considerably depending on where you purchase them), so I buy them online in two-packs to save money. All in all, the toner is a good product, and I know I have the real HP behind them should there ever be a concern or a problem.
I bought this scanner because I wanted something that was in my price range and that could scan larger things, in particular I wanted 12x12 pages that I've scrapbooked to be able to scanned and printed so I have a smaller version. This allows me to get most of the page. I scanned 2x, getting most both sides. I've not tried to put them together yet, but working on the scanning part seems easy enough.
My old scanner could only do one page at a time. This new one is so easy to set up and use and scans multiple pages and en scans duplex (front and back of a page). Very cool!
