I read alot of reviews before buying this printer. While the "Expert reviewers" seemed to all hate this pinter, the user review were by and large all positive. This was the cheapest A3 pinter i could find on the net normally a3 printers do only just that, print. however all the extra features on this printer are amazing for a machine in this price bracket. i rarely print photographs but i printed one or two just to see what the quality was like on normal a4 paper, and to be honest it was beter than i had expected considering the expert reviews. i couldnt really find any fault with them.

So far i have used the a4,a3 printing, the copier and the scanner( i dont have a fax line so cant comment on that) and all work perfectly. i occassionally print cad drawings and had previously used an epson 1290 always with oem ink which cost nearly four times the price of this printer and none of the added features of this printer, the print head broke for no reason so i decided to go for the chapest a3 printer and use cheap compatible ink cartridges. cheap cartridges are readily available for this pinter and also the use of individual colour tanks mean you only replace the empty colour not the whole colour cartridge like the epson 1290. this printer picks up the diferent line weights of the cad drawings perfectly and the print quality is equal to if not better than my old priner. Speed of printing is not a major consideration for me but it again is faster than my old epson prnter.

BOTTOM LINE it is a great a3 prnter for the money, packed with features and cheap cartridgs are readily available for it.

I bought this printer because I wanted to print my photographs in A3 size. I am really pleased with the results I have got so far. Apart from that I am also pleased with the versatile way it will allow me to copy and scan. I like the option to print up to 4 pages on one side of paper and the ADF makes copying multiple sheets much easier than my previous all in one.The small display screen shows caller ID when someone rings, and the different screens in the menus are easy to navigate. The comprehensive user's guide that comes with it in paper form means it is easy to quickly look up and find out how to use the different functions, but most of it is fairly easy to work out. I think it is good value for them money - especially as I had seen it much more expensive elsewhere.

I've had this printer for a few months now, and I'm still waiting to see what the downside is. It's very cheap, it prints great, up to A3 size. It faxes, it scans and it photocopies. The ink carts are separate colours, and are loaded and replaced individually. They're also really cheap. Very easy to use. Brilliant!

I think I have used most makes of printer for my small business but I can't believe the great value this printer is. Its even prints A3!! fast, easy to set up and load inks. Great value on the high capacity inks and nice quiet printing. Fax is by button not touch screen which I refer. all in all can't fault it.

As the editor of a local magazine I need A3 printers. This Machine is a doddle to setup and use. Pin sharp on the page including photos. To the person who says this machine is slow - may I suggest he either re-installs it or send it back. This should not happen. Excellent price and quick delivery

Great Printer. Easy to set up. Cartridges inexpensive. Good quality copies. Good price. Even better it also operates as a fax. Drawback: Does not copy A3 only prints A3. However, I understand that for an extra £50 or so I could have got the wireless one that also copies. Doh!

This has got to be the best value A3 printer on the market. I was a little sceptical initially, as the price differences between this printer and it's competitors was quite significant, and thoughts of 'too good to be true' did cross my mind. However, on reading the many positive User reviews, there seemed to be very few down sides.

The printer was very easy to set up, and having used it for daily business for the past month or so, there is very little that I can find to fault it. The only comprimises appear to be that the scanner for this model will only accomodate A4 size documents, which wasn't a major issue for me, and that there is a single paper tray (the tray needs to be extended for A3 which was a little fiddly and has a slightly flimsly tray cover), and consequently you will need to manually change paper sizes.

On the many plus sides, the A3/A4 printing is very quick (once document buffering complete)and the Standard print quality is excellent. I've not yet tested the High quality print output @ 1200x6000 dpi, but judging by the results of A3 prints on Standard settings, I don't think I will be disappointed. The multiple sheet feeder on top of the unit works equally well, for Scanning direct to the computer to create image files and PDF's, or for photocopying direct to printer.

The main thing that really sets this printer apart as an excellent value purchase, is the cost of the generic ink cartridges that came as part of the 'frequently bought together' deal. A multi-pack of 10 cartridges cost less than £1.50 per cartridge, and that includes the postage & packaging. At these sort of prices for consumables, any future worries of overuse of ink and wastage are completely eliminated
