The quality of the print is excellent, in terms of crispness, clarity, and color intensity, as well as front-to-back registration when printing two-sided, as I just mentioned to nolabert. And yes, the ink lasts a really long time. Since I learned how to perfect-bind books, I've printed and bound many game books from PDFs, so I've printed a few thousand color pages already, so I can totally back you up on how long a tank of ink can last, and I've looked at the price of refills, and it's amazingly low. I really am enjoying being able to use name-brand ink without having to worry about the high cost per page when printing with ink cartridges.
Now that my frustration has subsided, and I've invested some time in somewhat more careful experimentation, I've found that if I load a single sheet of 110 lb. cardstock into the paper tray, the printer feeds it properly about 70-80% of the time. That's worse than I wish it was, but way better than what I was running into trying to load several sheets into the tray. So...I'll take the good with the bad, since the money's already spent. It prints really well, very cheaply, and takes a little babying when I want to print for paper craft. Down the road--hopefully at least a few years from now--I'll be looking for an Eco-Tank printer that explicitly does handle cardstock, because apart from that one shortcoming, I'm really happy with this printer.
