Manufacturer's Description


This printer’s footprint is relatively small, but it expands towards the top to accommodate the flat-bed scanner. Finished mainly in matte black, it’s no great beauty, but multi-function printers never are. At least it’s not totally offensive in terms of its appearance.

The control panel is mounted on a sloping edge at the front and includes a small two-line monochrome display, along with dedicated buttons for the fax, scan and copy functions. There’s also a keypad for dialling fax numbers, a four-way cursor pad, and eight quick-dial buttons for storing frequently used fax numbers. The display is quite small, but the printer’s menus are reasonably easy to find your way around, helped by the fact that the menu structure doesn’t actually run that deep.

When it comes to setting it up, this model really couldn’t be more straightforward. You simply remove a few protective strips, take out the toner cartridge, give it a shake to make sure the toner is evenly distributed, and then load up the drivers on your PC.

The printer covers all the connectivity bases — USB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections are all supported. You’re given the option as to which connection method you want to use when you install the drivers, but you can also set up the printer to work with your Wi-Fi network directly, via its front control panel.
