Picture and graphics printing is excellent when compared to other printers in same price range.

Control Panel- If you are a new user or a little technologically challenged you are going to have little problems navigating through the controls and LCD menu. The control panel is plain and the screen is easy to read. Be wary, if changes are not proper locked into the system menu, default setting will be reverted to.
