Good points:
Smart appearance, compact to some printers I've had.easy to slot-in inks, scanner is great, copy I quick. I love the fact that you get to pick speed of printing. If I want a fast ok print out, pick fast print, for better but not best, pick normal fast, then normal is better again and you also get top quality print. Each section you use uses proportion of ink according to the quality, less quality, less ink and so on. If you don't use wireless, you get to insert your printer lead under the scanner plate, inside the machine. This is great in stopping the leads becoming disconected or loose at the back. Great item for home use, would recommend.
Bad points:
Haven't come accross any yet. I don't turn mine off just in case it takes a while to warm up again. I leave it in sleep mode, which doesn't appear to use much power.
