everything that can go wrong, has!!!


This has to be one of the worst purchases I have made. First, the original cartridges were either empty or very shortly emptied. (I only print very rarely). New cartridges were ordered and installed. The price of the cartridge was nearly the cost of...

Nuance Software Is non-Performer


I have been unable to open the Nuance software. I get a runtime error. Their tech support does not understand runtime error. I am very disappointed. I have a printer and that is it.

Best Printer Ever


Easy to install it took me about ten minutes to set up the rest of my home network such as: desktop, and laptops. No problems, so far working great. I would recomend to anyone, great price for a all in one wireless printer.

So far no complaints from me.


I probably should wait on this review. I have only used the printer but I really like the output. The printer was super easy to set up and even get on my wireless network. I have not used the scanner or fax yet and probably will not use the fax as I...
