Scan technology that was $30,000 a decade ago. Great for scanning, not for printing
UPDATED October 8th 2011 - Rating dropped by one star and pending potential further reduction. Summary: Works great. If it works. Initial unit began to fail. Warranty replacement was DOA. See the end of the review for more information.

UPDATED February 25th, 2012 - See Mid-Term Update at the bottom.

==========
Exceptional scanning; Sub-par printing.

The praise (good stuff)...
- Narrower than average operational footprint
- Exceptionally fast scan speeds
- Excellent scan color reproduction
- Absolutely no chromatic aberration on scans - This is huge
- Wired USB and/or Ethernet/Wireless B/G/N (2.4GHz)
- True square-pixel PPI scanning

The raze (not-so-good stuff)...
- Loud printing
- Paper tray access is limited
- Single paper tray without manual bypass feed

The haze (things to keep in mind and clarify)...
- Near-vertical scanning surface may require some...

AMAZING AND CRAZY FAST SCAN
After 2 days of thinking, I finally gave in and bought this printer thru one of the sellers on Amazon (because it can arrive to my house in 1 day with Amazon Prime). There is only 1 seller qualified for prime shipping and sell at $200s. It is not a bad deal as I can use Prime shipping + extra fee for 1 day delivery. And now I have the printer seating next to me!!!

Experience:

*** AFTER I USED THIS PRINTER, I HAVE JUST INCREASED THIS FROM a 4 stars to a 5 stars !! ***

SETUP - VERY EASY! Insert the setup disc > set up Wifi > disconnect USB cable > you are good to GO!

PRINT - have no problem printing from my network computers. However, I learned that you have to put it in the same room with your network computer. I have tried to put my printer in other room, and its Wifi connection was being blocked by the wall.

SCAN - I am telling you. This scanning is the FASTEST I have EVER EXPERIENCED!! First time I have enjoyed scanning so...

Mixed bag--Misadvertised for Mobile Printing
Update September 2011:

After replacing the print head and ink (see Auguest below)Magenta failed to print after 39 pages. Cleaning seems to fix it, at the expense of a good 10% of the ink of ALL cartridges per cleaning. Untenable.

Update August 2011:

The printing just failed (streaks with the XL carts 2/3 full). They sent me a new print head and cartridges.

Streaks continued until I replaced BOTH the carts and the print head. All after 220 pages printed.

I conclude that the cartridges themselves can become clogged and fail.

The cleaning cycle drinks 10% of the ink.

This is the WORST experience I have ever had with a printer.

============================================================

There is a lot to like here:

Pros

Setup is super easy for all the things this can do.
Nice applets
Fast for an ink jet
Easy paper handling
Wireless is...
