I moved to a CP-M1A printer after repeated headaches with a competitor's printer, specifically a certain dreaded IC Chip Error. I'm very satisfied so far. The cost per print is higher than some options, but the print quality is better, with deeper blacks and greater clarity and detail. The printer, though still pretty heavy, is lighter than comparable options on the market. It has handholds for easy carrying. It does take some finagling with the printer settings to get the best prints, and there was limited guidance on how to do it. Changing out the printer media is super quick and easy.
It's a great printer, and while not perfect my options are 4 or 5 stars here, so I rounded to 5.

Advantages: Great print quality - better colors, better detail, fast prints
Reliably worked through several hundred prints so far.
Somewhat lighter weight than comparable printers
Hand holds to carry it!
Fast, easy change of printer media

Disadvantages: Higher cost per print than some competitors
Learning curve with the printer driver with limited instructions as far as I've seen
Still a pretty heavy machine
