Looking for a new printer for the parents,
This will be a Home printer for occassional documents and photos.

Narrowed down to two models, which one is superior? I know that the latter is newer but the former is a higher end model? How else do these differ? Which is faster or the "better" buy?

Thanks SDers!

In a thread like this links are always useful. No one wants to copy your model number, do a search find what it is etc. Make it easy for us!

It looks like the newer one has Google Cloud Print. If that might be important its the clear winner. Looks like we are talking about the $70-90 inkjet range here. I would suspect the quality to be similar. Not a ton of money to pour into big hardware features.

If it was me I would go for a B&W Laser printer (Probably one of the brothers that goes on sale frequently) and get your photos printed at Walmart, drug store, or online. Get better quality, prints that last longer, for less money than buying 1 ink refill. Also you don't have to go through the trials of calibrating a printer, ink drying out, etc.

And less time providing support for their printer problems.

I would get whatever printer has the cheapest refillable ink.
