Bought this as a replacement for a faulty epson printer, not his model, and so far cannot complain. A bit slow at printing but that apart easy to use, set up really easy and overall quite happy.

Worth the purchase price for basic printing needs, not very good when coping photos though, but otherwise great.

Good Purchase


Excellent printer, quality of photographs very good, for the price you will not do better, The only noise is when the paper feeds in to start printing and that is not a major problem, during printing ok.

good machine


This printer was bought to replace a very old but loyal Epson printer. As a 'silver surfer' I found it very easy to set up, easy to use and good to look at, it has all the funtions I require to use at home or light office work.
