    I just got a Lexmark X6570 for Christmas. After some research I've found that the reviews are horrible.

    I want a printer that prints great photo quality. Maybe a multifunction with wireless as long as it does good photos. I also like how some Epson's have CD printing function.

    Any recommendations?

    i use the freebie that came with my mac :dunno:
    good enough for school stuff and the occasional photo print.

    if i need to print anything really big or nice i just go to wolf camera and print it, its much cheaper than the ink :o

    I have a Canon MP510. Works great using the Intel mini as a print server over the network.

    i bought my dad this canon pixma

    amazing borderless prints, as good as ones at the photo machine...but it has the usual problems of having expensive ink cartridges (could go with after market cartridges if you are crafty enough to pull off the chips on each cartridge)
    + shipping was like $25

    I've got an HP Photosmart all-in-one which is really handy and a Epson b/w laser printer.

    I'd love to still have my old Apple LaserWriter and Color LaserWriter but they broke down and it just wasn't cost effective to fix them.

    I'm looking at the HP Photosmart C5280, mainly for the CD/DVD printing. Only issue is you can only print on CDs from a Windows PC. I have a Windows laptop, so it's no big deal, but still a little disappointing.

    Anyone using a CD/DVD printer on a Mac?
