Good solid reliable printer
on 23 October 2014
Firstly, I should say that I'm writing this review after using the printer for the past year, as this is the only way to properly review an item.
I used to have an HP then switched to a fancy Epson when it needed replacing, which had top reviews on Amazon (probably from people who had not long used the thing!). After finding that I was constantly having to change the colour cartridges (whether or not you use colour, colour ink is injected each time anyway), I was completely fed up and thanks to the Amazon returns policy, was able to return the Epson printer and get this one instead. Before buying this, I did a lot of research on Which. This one was in the top 10 and seemed to best meet my needs. When I got this, it was like a breath of fesh air after my Epson ordeal. It's very fast being a laserjet but also much more economical to run than the old Epson one (which was however cheaper to buy). In summary, I would say beware of buying a fancy cheaper printer that turns out to be much more expensive to run- I found that to be a false economy (especially as they are designed to reject non-original branded cartridges). This may not do colour, but it is a solid, fast and reliable printer and scanner.
