Pauline, Galashiels Home business users

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
We haven't had the printer for very long and haven't yet put it through its paces. We can only compare it with our previous printer that was an Epson Stylus Photo R1800 (also an A3 printer) and say that it is faster, particularly when printing pages of text. The Epson gave up after 15 months and started going through cartridges, which made printing VERY expensive, but the quality is good. If this one lasts longer than the Epson we'll be very happy.
Bad points:
It won't allow us to do a quick borderless prints on normal paper like the Epson did, so we have to tell it that we're using photo paper, which it takes more time (and probably more ink) to do. As said though, it's early days and we've got other things to try out with it before we decide if we'd buy another one when this one decides it's done enough.

Tegwyn, Eexter Keen grapics user.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very well-made - solid and substantial. Very easy connectivity. Very easy to set up and use. Print quality is superb and print speed remarkably fast. For an A3 printer, its footprint is remarkably small.
Bad points:
I have found none so far!
