HP Photosmart B109n

 

Print quality is average although I havent used it extensively.

I purchased the printer for occasional home/business use and because (surprisingly) it was highly rated by Which magazine but due to the fact I have to manually feed individual paper into the machine I always try to wait to print when I am in the main...

I have been very happy with the results received. Good speed, very clear copy and colour excellent.

My one criticism is the cartridges. They do not last very long and it works out expensive to replace them every few weeks.

HP Photosmart B109n

 

Looks good, easy to set up and prints well and at a good speed.

the only negative I would say is the plastic bit which swings out from the front and sticks a little to far, however I would buy another one in the future.
