Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Wireless connectivity is good, and setup is very easy. Scanner is good quality, and the printer unit looks good in my house.
Bad points:
Uses an awful lot of ink when photo printing. Generally slow and noisy. Often prints photos a little bit darker than on screen displays.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Incredibly easy to set up.
Bad points:
Can't get the ink cartridges in your local store at present. You'll have to order some new ones as soon as you get the printer, as the supplied ones don't last long.
