    Really pleased with this printer. Amazed at the quality of standard print photos even on decent plain paper, on photo paper they're fantastic! Can't imagine how others are having set-up problems, I'm not exactly brilliant on pc's but I was up & running easily. Really pleased my old printer gave up, the wireless capability is great & it's pretty quiet too.

  • Excellent printer- could be better

    Set up of the printer and associated functions was very easy and the e print functionality works a dream using OSX Yosemite - BUT Occasionally the scanning function drops out meaning that it is impossible to scan. Solved by deleting printer, restarting then reinstalling the printer. Most annoying. Get that right and I'd give it a 5

  • brilliant

    So frustrated with my printer. Don't know how to connect to network even though wireless blue light is on. Can only print with usb so cannot print anything from tabletveven though I get msg that tells me my print has been submitted. Have waited 2 days and still not printed. Worst printer ever bought.Doesn't do what it's supposed to. Very difficult to setup and still can't get the results I need. Where is the information I need to resolve my problems?
