"Very good for students"3.5 starson by ClaraG68
Pros: It does everything you need for student life. Good value for money, with replacement ink reasonably cheap, compared to some. Wireless network easy to set up and works like a dream. Printing quality is superb in black and white text documents.
Cons: Slow printing speed - don't print out lecture notes just before you are due for class, because you'll be marked absent! Diagrams and charts look great in black and white, but text on a colour background looks a bit less sharp.
Summary: I would recommend this product purely for its multi functional capabilities AND its wireless function. It does everything but make tea, without having to be in the same room - a major plus if you are flat sharing. Its a very recent purchase for me so have yet to explore it deeply, for example, fiddling about with the settings and sizing. Its also only the second printer I have bought - my last one was a Canon and lasted 3 years, so perhaps I'm a bit of a newbie with multi functionals! Very easy to set up so long as you follow the instructions and go slowly - trying to install quickly makes it crash! A great all rounder.Actually, having used it a few times, its quite rubbish. The paper jams constantly, and you have to stand by it while it prints to ensure that nothing bad happens! As I said before, printing is incredibly slow - even more so when you have to stand an watch and wait. Removing the paper jam is very fiddly, and today I somehow came away with not only torn paper, but a couple of screws as well! I'm taking mine back and going with another product.
