Colin, Burgess Hill Occasional home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up. Black printing very good, Considerable advantage in having separate colour cartridges.
Having three functions in one is very useful.
Bad points:
Cleans itself after each use which, I would have thought, uses ink. Not straight forward to load driver for Windows7. Scanning to Email defaults to Wndows Live Mail. Paper tray seems a bit delicate. Whole product somewhat bulky. No longer produced by Brother.

Andrew, Lapford, Devon Occasional home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A great all rounder - the individual inks mean cost of ownership should be lower than some other models, and it's simplicity itself to set-up, install and operate. I've been very impressed and am very happy with my purchase.
Bad points:
None so far - I suppose the only thing I can find to say at the moment is that it's not a great looking device - very dull, it almost looks as though it was designed 10 years ago, but I'm afraid this is a case of function outperforming form!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact so it fits on the existing shelf of the PC desk. Good scanning and copying.
Bad points:
Instructions for usage difficult to follow because the printed version does not tell you about scan etc. capabilities or operations. You have put the CD in to find that.
Buttons for "copying" not intuitive.
