Scott, Bognor Regis Occasional home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Coming from an ink jet printer we found this to be a fast high quality printer. We used it to print our wedding stationary and were more than happy with the results. Comparing it in general terms to our old ink jet, as an occasional user I like that we no longer need to worry about blocked print heads.
Bad points:
None so far and we've had it 5 months.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Reasonably efficient and nice looking bit of kit for the home office. Print quality is good.
Bad points:
Old gripe - the cost of replacement consumables is horrendous. When are we going to get to grips with this ?Ridiculously it is sometimes cheaper to buy a new printer - not very good for the environment.
Inexplicably mine came without a cover for the paper tray which was included with my previous, similar model. It was clear from the manual that this is available but there was a note to say that it was excluded in 'some countries'. This means that paper left in the tray for more than a few days can become very dusty.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast to start up. Only takes a few seconds before you can print the first page - my previous laser took 30-60 secs!
Windows 7 found and set the printer up quickly and without a problem.
Bad points:
Personally think the power and USB connectors are on the wrong sides of the printer.

Easy to set up & use. Good value for money.
