I didn't rush and it took me about 45 to 50 minutes to set up following the directions (which to be fair I found to be clearly laid out). There is an element of lifting the cover and putting the printer head and cartridges in, which although at first looks daunting, turned out to be fairly straight forward. The display and controls on the front are clear. At the back are sockets for USB, Ethernet (RJ45) and also fax/phone ports. I went for the wireless option - although the Ethernet port is a useful feature. The printer quickly found the router (several mtrs away through two walls). The disc automatically directed the PC to download the latest software for the pc and perhaps just as / more importantly the latest firmware for the printer (from memory it jumped from 2.x to 4.x). The latest firmware is available on the Kodak support page for those who have missed out on upgrades (http://support.en.kodak.co.uk/app/answers/detail/a_id/28106/selected/true). I printed a calibration sheet and all was working. Paper feeds from a generous 200-sheet paper tray at the front. I havent used the duplex dual sided option, but am happy with the print speed (note: certainly not fast but adequate for me over wireless) and quality. The print cartridges are lasting and they are relatively 'cheap' to replace compared to my previous printers. The printer came with full size cartridges. The fax (yes people still use them) works well - with the option to stop incoming pick up of faxes being useful (we have only one phone line and occasionally only need to send an outgoing fax). The printer Scans and Copies well. The printer doesnt take camera memory cards - however I never used these on my previous HP. The Kodak app for my Ipod Touch has worked well too allowing me to print photo's using wireless. However, I would suggest that anyone wishing to use wireless to print text rather than photo's from a device like an Ipad (rather than a PC / laptop) checks (as would be wise with all printers) whether the printer and the device support each other. I dont have such a device capable of printing text, so cant comment.
