John, Dereham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It suits my needs as a small office publishing literature on a regular basis. Easy to load inks and papers. Useful to have two trays for different papers.
Other functions fine
Bad points:
A bit bulky, but then there are the two trays, one of which adds to the height of the machine. The obly other snag is that if you want to print two sides of one sheet of paper, you have to pull the tray out and at the moment that is a little stiff.
