My primary requirement was for quality photo printing and since I will be on low volumes I was not too concerned with costs per print or speed. No further comment on that. I rate this printer on :- build quality (sturdy and all mechanisms appear solid and it operates smoothly and reasonably quite, colour reproduction (excellent with selectable profiles), paper handling (excellent with a tray feed for A4 and top feed photo paper will select source automatically, can print duplex without manual change, adjustable paper guides), software (great software and driver, easy to use with lots of options including multi page layout, duplex and booklet), online service (access to online templates - not my thing but quality images), setup (first time use needs a bit of setting up READ THE MANUAL and follow instructions. Note the A4 tray extends to fit A4 so it sticks out a front not an issue for me), Prints on CDs/DVDs (appears a solid mechanism but not tried it). ALL parts that sick up/out can fold flat/in for transporting reducing risk of damage. Read online full spec for more.
