Andrew, Chelmsford Frequent home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
After using products from another company (HP) we have found that this Multifunction device is so much superior in every way. It is easy and quick to use. And there does not appear to be software that reports back in the same way that HP equipment does.
Bad points:
Paper loading tray appears to be on the weak and flimsy side and has to be removed and reinstalled every time paper is required.

Good points:
Overall printing is good, a is copying which shows no difference to the original copy being used..
Bad points:
Rather fragile appearance and feel of the paper tray, giving the impression that it could have a relative short life.
Wating time before printing begins after telig the computer to print.

Separate ink cartridges for each colour. Nice aesthetics. Good print quality.
Prints as fast as I need - ie to me indistinguishable from 'instantaneous'... :)
Good scan quality.
Setup to PC as easy as it can get.

excellent little thing, printed nearly a reams worth and not even 1 paper jam!
Bad points:

Good points:
great print quality.
Bad points:
The position of the USB connection was a pain, needs to be redesigned . Having the power input on the side causes the printer having to be placed on a wider shelf, input at rear please..
