Quality piece of kit..... make sure you read the good not just the bad
on 4 September 2015
There are a lot of mixed reviews on here but all you want to hear is 'is it a good printer?'
Yes it is - and at less than £100 for a laser (well LED) it is fantastic value.
I think a lot of the poorer marks come from people who had difficulty setting it up for wireless operation.
So a quick precis: Took it out of the box, took all the sticky tapes off - removed the cartridges and took their safety plastic bits off.
Put them back and turned it on.
'setup wizard' showed on the screen, I pressed ok and it searched for the wireless router.
It found it and asked for the password (found on the back of the router) A bit of 'up -down' with the keys and it was in and connected.
Put DVD in and installed the wireless drivers. It now shows in 'printers' on windows (no trouble at all)
Printed a few pages, it was fast and excellent print quality. Printed a photo and it wasn't so good until I realised I was in standard print mode.
Changed this to high quality and a great photo came out.
If you want to use card or glossy photo paper, there is a front and back flap to pull down. This then goes through the printer without bending at all.
The paper carrier is excellent taking 250 pages - pull it out put a ream in there and close the lid.
A very compact extremely high quality text printer and photos are of a high enough quality to frame.
And when I say high enough - you have to look really close to see 'sometimes' slight banding of the black colours.
I highly recommend this printer - you will be delighted with it.
