I have it and the 1200 and the differences are very subtle. Also, it will use the same 3rd party cartridges as the 1520, so no waiting for availability. Caveat - one would most certainly want some sort of profiling software to use with it. Happy New Year, bob snow - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
