Funny, bought a HP7610 a few months ago after the old Epson died. The main feature for me is a 12" LP, 10" jacket and even some 12" Euro jackets lay flat on the scanner bed. Downside, I don't think Stephen Hawking could figure out the two-sided, mutli-page printer driver. Photo quality is above average, a lot depends on what software you're printing from. Everything I use has a save-template function. I find it less frustrating to just roll my own.
All-in-all, not too bad once you figure out how to silence all the gong noises.
