Paul, Livingston

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
I've had no opportunity to find any good points.
Bad points:
I'm a Mac user and although the spec. says it's compatible with Mac the installation instructions are totally inadequate. Unlike a windows install, where a nice easy piece of install software is included, there is nothing for a Mac install. Misleading packaging and the print server is still sitting unused on my desk.
