Lesley, Wokingham Frequent home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Compact; easy to use. Have had a cannon before, which helps. Good online manual.
Bad points:
A problem with colour quality from the outset.The colour cartridge appeared to have dried out, despite the indicator implying it was full I had to change the colour cartridge after very little use.
A repacement refill would be appreciated.
