    I bought this for the A3 scanning and printing features.

    There appear to be two scanning units, one for the sheet feeder and one for the flat bed. The sheet fed scanner developed an intermittent fault, leaving a line down the middle of the scans, not long after I bought the unit in July 09. The flat bed scanner still works fine.

    A major problem on the flat bed scanner is aligning the document: The margins are huge with the scanner missing large swathes around the edge of document if it is too close to the edge of the platen.

    Another major issue is the scanning software which has a preview window too small for making fine adjustments to the scan area. Also, you cannot rotate the image from the preview.

    All in all this makes it difficult to scan documents of unusual shape or those of ordinary shape with detail close to the edge of the document.

    The quality of the scans is good, and the two issues which are major for me would not be an issue if you were scanning documents of a standard size, say A4, with reliably large margins.

    Print quality is good and printing is reasonably quick. The duplex print feature works well and you can print booklets with the software automatically ordering the page numbers correctly. Consumables are relatively cheap.

    After one month's use I have used most features on this unit.

    The A3 scanning capability (or Ledger size for american publications) is great for scanning and archiving articles in journals. I use Acrobat in combination with the native TWAIN interface for custom scans with preview, as the free Paperport software provided either produced a simple image or an OCR text file, whereas Acrobat provides the best of both. It is easy to control the resolution for each scan and I have not had any problems with 'cropped' edges or finding the preview window too small - if you only want to scan a small item, place it in the corner and select a smaller paper size for the preview scan, there is no point in previewing the whole A3/Ledger area for an A5 item.

    The same scanner is used for auto-fed paper, this has also worked well. Only once have two sheets been fed through together so I had to start again, this was because they had been stuck together for years previously so it is important to loosen up pages before placing them in the auto-feeder. Even with a mistake, because it is an auto-feeder it saves a lot of effort when scanning standard sized documents e.g. A3, A4. Maximum resolution on auto-feeder is supposedly 600×600 which has not been a limiting factor, I have found a 300×300 setting quite sufficient for my archiving requirements including OCR to make documents machine searchable.

    This MFC is finally making my dreams come true of reducing paper file mountains so my home office can become tidier!

    The size of the machine is unavoidably greater than an A4 MF unit, but I can't see how it could be made any more compact; tucked into a corner within chair swivelling reach of my desk it does not feel bulky at all.

    First of all, apart from lightness of print (which previous reviewer had commented on), no issues at all with set up and printing, wireless first go, all works fine. Windows 7, installed driver only... no problems, Vista installed full software, no problems.

    My only gripe (and the only thing I've found so far that lets this printer down) is it's hidden feature.

    I bought this as I wanted a printer, capable of colour A3 and A4 duplex, which if it was wireless would be a bonus. On delivery it became apparent that only the top tray is capable of duplex (ok, so I have a massive capacity bottom tray that can only print A4 and only simplex)... top tray takes A4 and does duplex... so far so good. However, want to print A3? You have to change the settings on the top tray to take A3... so I find if I want to save the planet AND print A3 I have to keep getting up and changing paper in tray... or I could stay other side of office and print A3 from top and A4 from bottom (but no duplex).

    :-(

    Had I known this up front I would NOT have bought this printer.

    This has to be the best duplex printer we have had at work since. It works at great speed, concise and quality outcomes. There is no hassle of wires, doesn't take up that much room and works at a reasonable speed and fairly low noise. Delivered on time and in perfect condition.

    I bought this because I needed an A3 printer and scanner and this one was vastly cheaper than most. The cheapness shows in some of the build quality, which is a bit plasticy. Having said that, the print quality is surprisingly good - much better than expected. It tends to print light, so it's necessary to boost the printer's own settings and, preferably, darken the original image too. That done, the results are very good indeed. The scanner works fine, once you've figured out the settings through trial and error. The provided information is not brilliant. The one big flaw I found is that I was unable, after four hours of trying, to get the printer to work wirelessly. Eventually I gave up and ran a wire into it. I'm pretty sure the lack of wireless connectivity is not down to the printer, though some clearer set-up instructions would have been nice. Haven't tried the helpline yet. I'll get back to you an that one. All-in-all though, a very good product for the price.
