Yes, from my experience the pictures have turned out great. The printer software isn't the best for editing photos so I'd recommend getting some sort of photo software. For the price you can't go wrong!

Yes. It should be. Just load the CD driver disc and it should detect Vista and load the appropriate drivers. Since it is USB interfaced, it will work with almost any operating system that supports USB.

It does not have a port for a printer cable, it only has USB B (that's the square hole, not like the rectangular slot of a traditional USB port). Perhaps you can find a converter.

It will work with the USB cable which comes with the printer, however if you have no available USB you can get a USB hub to increase the number of USB ports available, usually well under $10 or get a USB to pin connector adapter [even cheaper]

This printer only requires an usb cord. Not sure about how yours came boxed, but mine came with the usb cord so I didn't need to purchase anything extra to start using it. It also comes with both ink cartridges that you need.
