Score 10.0/10
Good points:
prints very well in colour and black I am very satisfied with the printer would certainly recommend I thought the price was reasonable too
Bad points:
the only bad point I have found and it doesn't affect the print quality is there is a pause before actually printing when you're not sure if the message has got through or not and you're just about to click again when off it goes not really a fault at all just that I'm impatient I guess

Bad points:
Tthe colours are incredibly faded, I have not had time to go to curries for a refund or replacement yet. Print quality appauling, hugely upset and dissappointed, have tried everything I can think of to fix it. Also the user guide was completely useless.
