Great Print, Lousy Fax / Networked function
on 10 June 2013
The printer is compact, good quality and I especially like the separate paper trays for paper / photo. So you can print photos without changing paper or cartridges. AirPrint is also convenient.
However, as a WiFi only printer, I find that you have to regularly reboot the printer.
I tried to use auto-off, and turn on only when needed, but then it disables web services (like eFax). So you have to compromise.
On eFax, this is a total waste of time. Quicker to jump in your car and drive to local copy center. The setup is mind bogglingly over complicated (turn on here, register thewre, put this code in here, email somewhere, register again, put in more codes, add printer, etc etc), it rarely works, and you will be prompted to upgrade to a pay service at every step along the way (which will never be worth it for home users who probably send 1 or 2 a year).
Pity, as with WiFi and eFax, you could put the printer away from your network and phone sockets, but this does not work well at all in this printer.
Also the scan to computer is a bit flaky, but that is more of a wifi issue if you printer has a less than perfect signal.
Great printer, but not for those who don't like constant tinkering to get it to work.
