Good points:
Excellent printer.Quality and speed is as good as you could expect for the money. I particularly like the front paper load arrangement, and the fact that photo paper and A4 copy paper can be loaded at the same time. I am very pleased with this purchase

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to set up. Good print quality. Lots of options that I haven't had a chance to try yet.
Bad points:
A minor point: my previous printer switched on automatically when a document was sent for printing. Unless I've missed something in the setup process this one has to be switched on manually. It's also more bulky than my last printer but has the multifunction so well worth the extra space it takes.
