Advantages: Very easy to use and high quality prints!
I bought this printer from Wilkinsons just over two years ago when I started university. I needed something which was easy to use and would be long lasting, with replacement ink that wasn't overly expensive.
The all in one printer is an excellent size, much smaller than any of the all in one's I'd previously seen which was great. It is simple in design; grey and black in colour with the simple to use control buttons to the side of the scanner.
It is very easy to print using this all in one. To do so, you simply plug the usb cable into your laptop or computer and click print on your computer. It could not be more simple! The printing quality is brilliant, and the speed at which is prints is fairly quick. I find that it prints even my favourite photographs perfectly with very accurate colours. The ink in the cartridges for this printer also last quite a long time, I printed enough photos to fill a 2m x 1.5m board on my wall as well as some for a friend, along with around 20 essays. (and probably more that I'm forgetting!) Another bonus is that the printer isn't really noise like many others can be - it does make noise, but nowhere near as loud as my last printer!!
The scanner is also very easy to operate through the controls on your computer. It picks up every detail of the pages that I have scanned and show them on my screen at a high quality. I was very impressed with both the quality, how easy it was to do and the little time that it took to do.
To copy, all you have to do is place the item you want to copy in the scanner and press either the black button or the colour button; ta da! a copied printed image of the item in the scanner.
This is by far the best all in one printer that I have ever used; it's so simple to use and gives such high quality images in both copying and printing from a computer. It is an excellent printer for a very reasonable price. I would recommend it to everyone!!
Tips - The ink cartridges you buy for this printer can actually be refilled. I bought a set of ink refils on ebay and now simply refill my original cartridges to save money (because I'm a poor student, don't judge me!). This is very easy to do if you find that you struggle to pay for new ink cartridges, but the quality does become affected by this a little.
Summary: An excellent all in one printer for a great price, would recommend!!
