This is a low end printer with a lot of nice features. It's lightweight but doesn't feel particularly flimsy. The software and printer drives are easy to install. The print quality is very good. Our photos look vibrant, and the cropping software is a nice feature. It accepts XD cards, which works well for me because I have a Fuji Finepix camera.
There is even a button to switch from black and white to color, so hopefully that will save on ink. I haven't had to replace the cartridges yet, but our previous Epson was too expensive to keep using. I bought this one as an extra printer to use with a laptop, and it doesn't get heavy use. Each color has a separate cartridge, so hopefully just replacing the color I need will work out better.
The only real complaint I have is the location of the USB port. It's very awkward and difficult to access.
For the price I paid, after rebate, I'm very happy so far.
