Colin, Falkirk, Scotland.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A great networking printer. I'm able to connect very quickly from anywhere in the house with immediate feedback if there's a problem.
Bad points:
The initial setup was a bit 'involved' for a 'beginner', I'd say, but the software 'holds your hand' through the whole process and I got ther in the end.
