I still haven't changed my opinion on All-In-One devices. They're great if you're tight for space, or you only do casual photo printing. For the best quality prints, a dedicated printer is still going to give you better results. This latest generation of devices is very close though. The photo print quality of the Canon Pixma MP980 exceeds anything you could have gotten from a dedicated photo printer a couple of years ago. I use an AIO for general printing tasks, the quick photo print or two, and the occasional scan. For $299, you're getting a heck of a lot of quality. For many people, the Canon Pixma MP980 will be all that you need for photo printing or scanning. Print costs are on average with a small desktop printer - you'll be spending about $0.25 for a 4x6 print.
