The Dell Photo 926 is a decent, affordable, multi-use printer. I'll start off with the print speed. A page of text takes 5-10 seconds to print and pictures, although taking considerably longer, still print at decent speeds. The quality is fine for text, there's rarely any lines or smudges while printing. Of course, this will vary based on how much ink you have left, if you're running low the quality won't be as good. That being said, it guzzles ink pretty fast. A single cartridge (using Dell's "extra capacity" ink) will last around 130 pages of text. Add this to the insanely high price of ink and you'll be cringing when somebody asks if they can use your printer. The connectivity is fin for the most part, but I found myself having to restart it and take the plug out to get it to read, which might be because of Windows Vista, not the printer itself. Finally, the overall look. It'll fit in with almost any surroundings and looks like something Apple might have designed, but bulkier and a little more sluttered as far as the interface goes. The scanner is hidden nicely and opens easily. Overall, this is a good printer for general home use, but I wouldn't recommend it for printing photos or large amounts of documents.
