People are always on the look-out to find an all-in-one printer, scanner, copier that has an 11x17 paper option. This printer fits the bill. But for me there were many cons: No double sided printing, tedious to switch paper sizes, I couldn't get it to print on most anything but standard paper, below-par photo quality, weak customer support, slow, noisy, sucks through ink quickly.

The ink cartridges were empty before I knew it, or at least they claimed to be empty. They say ink is where the real money is spent for the printer business.

The scan quality is excellent. The printer offers full network capabilities, though it is hard to set up correctly. It has a fax. But all in all, I found it to be a weak product. I don't recommend it.
