The small ink cartridges limit the iP1500 to light-duty use, but the combination of speed, quality, and price makes it a good choice as either a light duty all-purpose printer, or a secondary printer specifically for printing occasional photos.
Output quality is another strong point. The rating for photos is just short of excellent, with most photos in our test qualifying as true photo quality, but with a minor tint on our monochrome test photo. Text printing rates as good, with more than half the test fonts easily readable at 4 points, but some stylized fonts needing 12 points for easy readability. Graphics were marred by slight banding in default mode, but still rank as just short of very good.
