      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      It was great for 1 year but after that I gave up on it

      I bought this printer about 2 years ago. WHY? because of it's £40 price tag in my local retail park, that's very cheap, especially for that kind of price 2 years ago(start of 2008).
      The unique thing about this product is that it has Print,Copy, Scan, photo printing and the extra Fax option.

      It prints, copies, and scans very good, just like any other printer on the market. To be honest a few times i've printed about 100 pages ago, nothing went wrong.
      The other thing I like about this printer, is that the printer paper is stored at the front of this printer also the printed copy comes out of the bottom layer of the front side as well. Unlike other printers the paper is stored at the back which feeds the paper in and comes out the front but which needs that little extra storage space.


      The downsides are that if you want to print a photo, on A4 photo paper, then with my experiance is that the paper gets stuck, it is unable to bring the harder stiffer paper around and up from the back of the printer, so if you want to print photo's then I do not recommend you buying this product. The other downside is that the full set of ink cartridges are about £50 for the original inks made my brother. Yes you can get compatible inks which are cheaper. But I mastered another way which would save you alot of money, you can buy bottles of printer ink from local supermarkets. I bought a pack of colour inks which included the Magenta (pink), Yellow and Cyan (blue) bottles which cost about £7. Ialso bought a pack of black ink bottles which come in a pck of 3 for £7. Basically they provide a little screw which you use to make a hole at the top of the ink cartridge which you already have. And then just with a syringe which is provided you can suck up the ink from the bottle and inject it into the cartridge. You can fill your cartridges about 2 times atleast with each bottle of ink. Warning if you do get the ink on any textile it won't come off so watch it, and also wear gloves otherwise your hands will be stained for a couple of days.

      The last and final thing about this printer is that after a year this message came up that it's time to clean it, so i looked in the manual and checked what the precedure is, it said you need to clean the insides with a solvent, which i did but still the message keeps on appearing, and since then I have been unable to print. The only thing you can do now is is scan and fax only. So I gave up on it and bought another printer.
