Summary: I bought this printer because the all singing all dancing Cannon isn't compatible with Windows 8, as my requirements are less than they used to be this simpler printer is adequate. Siutable for a small office, you get what you payed for.
Ideal second printer - starter cartridge is useless
16 November 2013
Summary: Bought this as a second printer for my wife to use whilst studying for an MA. Printer is easy to set up with a windows PC including wifi (it works out of the box with an iMAC but wireless set up not easy) Only complaint is that the starter cartridge supplied did not work other than to provide a few smudges - this was a problem as wifi set up requires you to print a test page if you are trying to set up a secure connection - it is not clear from the blurb that you do not...
Summary: Use it at home with my HP laptop running XP pro- easy to set up, works like a charm wirelessly from any where in the house - is just like my old HP laser printer but this one doesn't need to have a computer left on and attached or a print server. 85A cartridges will cost more per copy but I can accept the trade off for the convenience.
Summary: This is a black and white laser printer only but it fits me already! It prints in a fast speed and the quality is good. HP also provide the apps for printing from the mobile phone. So, if you use a smart phone, you could install the app and print it from your phone directly. Moreover, the installation is not complicated and the guidance is clear.
Summary: I am not technically minded but even I, with a little telephone help from my son, was able to get this up and running. I am very pleased with it, especially the speed at which it works. I would not hesitate to recommend it to any one else, particularly those who struggle with the new technology like myself.
