Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great value for money printer for home/small office use.
At home I leave the printer switched on & connected to a network all the time, so the kids can use for homework etc.
Bad points:
Print quality is not as vibrant as some printers, however this can be adjusted in the setup.
When replacing toner carts, it was more cost effective to purchase a new printer and claim the cashback. This can't be the best poilcy for the environment.....
