Screwing up paper, 3 separate makes of paper tried +labels, so not usable. Still waiting for repair.

Tim, Worcester Frequent home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This printer is quick to warm up, quick to print and print quality is excellent. Highly recommended.
Bad points:
After an idle period the printer goes to sleep and all the lights go off, it's very easy to leave it switched on, this is however, a very small criticism of an otherwise very good printer.
