To print to A3 sheets, this model’s chassis was always going to be large, so it’s no surprise that this is a monster of a machine, measuring 514mm wide, 461mm deep and standing 260mm tall. Suffice to say, it’s not the type of printer you can casually hide away in the corner of a home office. It’s not pretty either, and the all-over dull matte black plastic gives it a harsh, industrial look.
The control panel is nicely lad out with large dedicated buttons for the fax, scan, copy and photo printing features positioned on the left-hand side, along with a numerical keypad for dialling fax numbers on the right. In between these two is a flip-up colour screen. This isn’t a touchscreen but it has a section on the right-hand side with touch buttons for controlling the on-screen menus.
