Small, light, quietif there had been a version in black and a dust tray for the paper it would have merited 5 stars.
Very cheap considering the quality, but not perfect. . I am actually very pleased with this printer, the resolution/quality is truly excellent. But there are two small issues:turning it / your router off will stop it working wirelessly (i suspect i could fix this by assigning a fixed ip address, but i’ve not figured this out yet). Second, it struggles with transparencies unless they have a paper backing sheet. Neither of these are huge issues to me, but i thought i’d share them. Absolutely, for the price it is an amazing printer, and, it looks like you get a pretty full ‘starter’ toner cartridge (i’m still using my first one).
I helped a friend set this up, and it works very well. Like some other reviewers, my friend had trouble with the wi-fi connection, but i updated the printer’s firmware and it has been fine since. Note that this is not the driver that you install on your computer, but software that is uploaded and installed on the printer itself. (click on the link that says “how do i update my printer’s firmware?”, or “see all” if it isn’t on the list). The original firmware was version 3. 14, and the settings menu showed a wi-fi signal quality of “poor”. After updating the firmware to version v3. 15 (october 28 2013), the signal quality changed to “good” and my friend had no more problems with it. One way of finding out the printer’s current firmware version is to press and hold the wps button for about 10 seconds until the green led blinks slowly, then release the button. ]
- A minimal-footprint printer
- A stunning little printer that is excellent value for money
- Good little printer but
It starts quickly, prints fast with almost no delay, dead easy to use, good quality printouts, using the cable is easier than the wireless setup but the wireless does work if you persevere.
Delivered in two days, switched on set it up for wi-fi and off it went good as gold, doesn’t tell jokes.
