Excellent value for money
on 10 June 2011
This has been an excellent purchase. For what it is, a low cost black and white printer and scanner, it is superb. I would like a colour printer, and a sheet feeder for the scanner, but I would expect that to cost more, of course.
Start up time, and speed of printing, are very good. The wireless works well.
So why did I knock off one star? For two reasons:
1) My wireless network has MAC address filtering, so to connect the printer I first needed to know its MAC address. There is no sticker on the printer, or in the manual, to say what that is. There is a function on the printer to print out the information using some button pushes, but that requires it to be connected to the network first. This made the "simple" set up complicated.
2) All the images of the printer are misleading as the footprint is increased by the fact that the sheet feeder is not integrated into the printer itself, but sticks out the front when paper is actually loaded. This was not a problem for me, but the images and information on the printer I felt did misrepresent it.
For me though, I am very pleased with this purchase.
