2 agree

Very sharp plain-paper output for an inkjet (probably sharper than some color lasers, but ever so slightly worse than a competent B&W laser).

Cons

Doesn't include USB cable in box. Must purchase separately

2 agree

No network port

2 agree

Large footprint, and bulky

2 agree

Some people (especially non-nerds) find the fax functionality to be user-hostile

1 agrees

ADF often misfeeds any paper which previously contained any staples

1 agrees

The quality of photos printed on plain paper is really bad. The colors are vastly less accurate on plain paper than on photo paper. For plain paper photos, even ancient HP inkjets will beat it.

1 agrees

On plain paper, blacks are not as deep/dark as on HP inkjets or B&W lasers. (Some people barely notice, others find it to be a showstopper.) Affects received faxes much more severely than printouts or copies.
