Be warned this is a large printer, that is to be expected when you see that it can print large format paper but it was still a bit surprising to get it out of the box and see how big it really is.
22 x 16.3 x 10.4 inches ; 27.1 pounds
Installation on my network through Ethernet went well. My only caution on that is that the first screen that identifies the printer shows the printer greyed out. I discovered that you just push through, hitting next and finally it all installs and lets you print a test page. The first test page took several minutes. After that the test pages from the other two computers were quite prompt.
I installed the software on an Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP machines. All worked fine, saw the printer and printed out beautifully. I printed out some photos on glossy paper and they were also beautiful. I know from past experience that Epson printers actually do print out better on Epson brand paper but I was more than happy with the results from the Canon brand paper I already have.
I have had the Epson multi-cartridge printers before and it is cheaper to use. When you run out of magenta, you replace the magenta cartridge rather than an entire multi-colored cartridge. The cost of operation is definitely better with this printer.
Overall it is a nice printer, the two trays and network ability mean it would function quite well in an office setting. The price and the operating costs mean it is a good value for the money.
I recommend it.
