so far,so good....this printer seems to work great on computer printing, i have not yet worked with any photo printing but will keep you up to date when available...
I bought the V600 start digital conversion and restoration project of Family photos and film. I have not started this project in earnest. The scanning app that I am using is Nuance Paperport 14. Before I start with photos and film I wanted to make sure to get accustomed to using it as a document scanner first. Note: I also have a HP Photosmart multi-use printer, scanner, copier. Getting back to the V600, the document scanning (Office Mode) is somewhat cumbersome. I didn't know I first needed to close out Preview (if you use Preview) first which erases preview image. It does not erase "the image", you then Scan. This just does not seem intuitive. HP allows to see a preview and while on the same window you select scan and you're done! In addition, once you Scan you need to close the Scan window and you'll see your scanned image populate the Paperport 14 desktop. It does not automatically close and populate when the scan completes. I believe this is part of the learning curve and the benefits of the V600 for my photo/film project will override the shortcomings as a document scanner.
I set my printer up a few weeks ago. I am printing mostly 13" x 19" prints from a recent safari and a lot of underwater fish and coral prints. So far it has been amazing.
We have been very pleased with this printer. We use it for our screenprinting business which requires a heavy amount of black ink to print our artwork. This is a specialized printer which allows us to replace the color cartridges with black ones and all 6 cartridges are used to lay down a thick black layer that will not allow light to pass through. It has worked very well. We have not yet tried to print color on larger white paper, but are excited to have printer that prints pages bigger than standard letter or legal.
