Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Not compatible with adobe software. thinks it is printing from 'letter' format from InDesign CS3 when document set to 'A4' format. Borderless from InDesign impossible to print. Have to print with borders. Maybe does not like Windows Vista. Or maybe does not like the latest updates on Adobe. In any case, paper size a real problem.
