Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Seperate Ink cartridges last a long time.Very economical. Lots of control over configuration. Image quality very good.
Bad points:
Sometimes the printer decides to double up on the print run... or duplicate a single sheet of text. sometimes also will deliver a single clear sheet after finishing programmed print.

John, Tavistock Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good looking machine, with good features. Sleep mode is excellent, printing from wi-fi laptop in another room within seconds.
Ink cartridge replacement is simplicity itself and have just photo-copied a complex colour photograph with very good results, whilst alteration of the various settings is child's play.

Bad points:
Quite annoying paper tray, awkward and time consuming to load.

Ted, Telford, UK Occasional home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As I have not used the printer very much recently I have not pushed it to its limits but am very pleased with results so far. Especially like the separate colour cartridges - keeping costs down. Also like the front loading of paper; previous printer was a top loader.
Bad points:
Not found any yet!
