I recently purchased the printer, and found it somewhat disapointing. I used it inconjunction with the Koala Pad. The major problems I had were with the quality of the print and the color graphics (what else is there?). 

The printing was almost unreadable if I tried to use anything but the paper that was supplied with the printer. As a matter of fact I eventually had to send away to California for their paper. We still weren't satisfied and after 6 weeks returned it to F
ed Meyers and purchased a Blue chip printer.

If you are considering using the color printer as an addition to your system not the main printer, you wouldn't feel too ripped off, but if this was your main man forget it.

But how was the color quality?  Is it anywhere near what the adds look like?
