Slow, frustrating software

 

Not recommended.

Cheap initial cost. All-in-one

Installation process very painful in Windows 7. I've spent 4 or 5 hours installing and re-installing. Still doesn't work well as a scanner; scanning very slow when it does work. Bundled software annoying, unnecessary, slow. Printer sucks ink and...

Very nice photo printer and MFC/AIO

 

Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase. After losing an outstanding Xerox 8560 in a job change, I wanted a small, quiet printer capable of decent photo prints, quality b&w text with duplex, and scan for my personal use. I also thought I'd like...

Excellent photo printing (at least in my limited, non-professional experience), very fast page printing, very good print quality, excellent paper handling and ADF, can connect via USB or LAN or Wireless LAN or Bluetooth, built-in duplex, silent sleep...

Ink is expensive (I hear printer ink is one of the most expensive liquids on earth), uses ink quickly, uses some colors even when printing black & white text, some functions hidden in depths of menus, open-ended paper tray, small paper tray, PITA...

You Get What You Pay For

Prints fast low quality. All in one and wireless is convenient

8 out of 10 times when I need to print something important it messes it up somehow. Installation was not very easy, wouldn't recommend for someone not tech savvy. Scan to file took many tries to get right and software kept crashing...and I was using an...
