This printer can print photos directly from an SD card. That's nothing new and printers have been doing that for years. But this one does it well. Its display shows a bright clear image of what you are going to print and makes it easy to crop them. It also gives you a number of adjustments, but not as many as if you use the drivers or utilities on a PC.
You can also print from a PC. The printer comes with a driver disk, and unlike other similar disks that often contain out of date software, this disk downloads the latest drivers directly making the process very smooth.
You can hook this to a computer with a USB 2.0 cable (not included) or have a number of choices using WiFi.
Another feature this offers is WiFi Direct. That allows you to print from your computer using WiFi even when you don't have a network. There are reasons you might want to print from a computer, phone or other device without using a network.
If that's not enough ways to print, you can send a document to an email address that's set up just for your printer. So printing from anywhere with that or Google are real options. There's also a remote print driver for the PC that essentially uses that email address behind the scenes, but you merely see the printer on your list of devices as with any other printer. But you can use it anywhere there is Internet connectivity. The only problem with the email address itself is that it has fourteen seemingly random characters before the "at" sign and isn't something practical to remember. So the driver is the best way to use it.
There's also an app for iPad/iPhone or Android that lets you print or scan, and send any scanned files to a printer, save them on your local device, save them in Google Drive, and more. The apps look very similar on both platforms and work about the same.
Scanning from a smartphone or iPad was a different story. It was relatively easy, and a non-intutive movable bracket in a lower corner let me select the area of the scan I wished to keep.
BOTTOM LINE: All in all, a good value for a small business printer, with good print quality and if you want to be able to print from almost anywhere. Still, you'll want to manage for the best value on your ink cartridges.
