Lawrence, Crowborough over 60

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. Fast. Photocopying extremely useful for those odd copies you need once in a while - saves a trip to the shops. Bulk copying is still best done by specialists.
The proper paper makes a big difference to photos - even against cheap glossy.
Bad points:
All inkjets are expensive to run but this is cheaper than a lot. No point having a card reader unless you don't have a computer. Simple colour filter needed - as with all digital stuff. (remember the Type A/Daylight filters from film days?)

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
All good except below . Also a lot better print and quality of machine than the dreaded Lexmark [see below] and approx the same price
Bad points:
Instruction for changing between colour and black and white print [ could be that I don't understand it all as I am a
"silver surfer" ] [teaching herself] Seems slow to react to instructions for 1st copy and then obviously has gathered information and is quicker on 2nd , very quick at actually printing page, hope it lasts longer than my first 2 printers, Lexmarks, which both fed in paper at an angle, therefore chewing it up and lasted less than a year between them, one being a replacement from Lexmark. !!
