HP CE658A P1102w 8MB 18ppm A4 LaserJet Printer by HP
Just bought a second one for home.

It's easy to set up (if you have problems, type the model in to YouTube for a simple video), the wireless infrastructure setup just works, AirPrint for iPad & iPhone just works, the drivers just install and work.

Once had a problem when I bought a cheap, fake toner. Advice: don't buy a cheap, fake toner.

A rare simplicity, I've had to faff around endlessly with printers in the past getting printer rage, but this one is just great.

2. Every tackle ends at opponent's feet, often magically clear through on goal. You can tackle… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken Record, 15 Sep 2013
For me this was an extremely dull broken record. I only finished it because I have OCD.

"Got in a fight", "drank lots of alcohol", "had sex".
Repeat that primitive cycle approximately 15 times and at last it ends, leaving you with nothing interesting to contemplate.
"Is that it?" and "did I miss something?" were my only afterthoughts.

Greed and over-indulgence are described (again, and again, and again............... and again), yet nothing intelligent or profound ever comes of it.

A series-link on "Boozed Up Brits Abroad" probably provides similar content and stimulation.

However, this book is in an All Time 100 Novels List published by… Read more
