Easy to install and so far very reliable. Having experienced ink jets drying up due to long periods without use this seemed the only way to go and I would recommend it. Even good for photos. Installation was simple and it was easy to network all the home pcs to use it via windows 7.
Having now printed on a variety of different materials I have found it is important to set the correct type of paper, card etc via printer properties - more so than qith an inkjet.
