Superb - bargain office printer at this price!
on 27 April 2013
Unbelievable, £100 for an office printer packed with this many features? It's an absolute no-brainer! Easy to change carts for a change (use refillables and save yourself a packet) and the dual-250 sheet dual front paper trays are a real bonus, as well as a single-sheet rear feeder.
The whole thing is reassuringly well built and gives the impression it will last well, and although you're not likely to go wandering around with it very much - it's a hefty piece of kit - the neat cut-outs at the sides of the base make handling this printer much easier.
The mains cable with dog-leg plug for the back of the printer is a neat touch too, you can push the printer further back which will save you a couple of inches of desk space. One review I read elsewhere criticised the text quality but I can't tell the difference between this and my mono laser printer! Photos are superb, as good as the £200 canon printer it is replacing which I had nothing but trouble with, and all in all this is an excellent printer, cannot hardly fault it at all.
Just one little glitch - the inexplicable omission of A5 size on the paper sizes menu! There is an A6 size quoted as 105 x 148mm (which is of course actually A5 size), but it prints out A6 size. Setting a user-defined size of 105 x 148mm also printed out the smaller A6 size for some bizarre reason but it's only needed for printing packing slips so I got around it by using 5 x 7 inch which is close enough for the purpose. Strange one though but no big deal, otherwise an excellent all rounder.
