Good: Quiet operation. Duplex printing. The price. The look.
Bad: Nothing yet.
Comment: Having had Olliveti, Epson (high maintenance) and HP (expensive ink cassettes) printers this is the best by far. The print quality is very good and the paper stack, of which there are two, means that it doesn't need filling so often. It's quiet operation allows it to be used late in the evening without disturbing the family. So far, three months, it seems to be cheap to run on ink. The duplex printing is really neat and avoids having to remove the paper and insert it again after turning it round to print on both sides of ther paper.
Good: Its output; trouble-free feed; quietness; ease of use; appearance.
Bad: Nothing so far.
Comment: I've owned my iP4000 for three months and I continue to be impressed by it, particularly after owning two Lexmarks in a row. I'm just not accustomed to placing paper in a feed slot and having it travel through the printer without having to prod it or pull it out of the works.
Printed text and diagrams are crisp and clear and digital photographs emerge looking just as good as they did on the monitor, without banding or stripes - remarkable. In 35 years of 35mm film photography I never had quality this good.
Paper can be fed from either the auto sheet feeder or the cassette underneath, and you can print on both sides of the paper automatically. There is also a plate into which you can insert a suitable type of CDR or DVDR for printing upon.
The nearest thing to a problem that I've experienced is when 6 x 4" photo paper in the cassette has curled up and blocked the feed, but the flashing LED code alerted me to it before it could jam. If I had to buy another printer right now I'd buy another one of these without hesitation.
Good: Ok printer
Bad: Where do i start?
Comment: Not all that. Bit plastic. Not great quality. Never again!
