there is a few reasons not to buy this close companion, a brother is made for adversity but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother, I don't mean the mouse. This is a simple but effective machine it's not quick as it often decides to clean itself while your trying to use it, if it's been standing a while, and you have to be patient while it's in the shower. It's quite easy to use with reasonable quality I would recomend higher grade paper if using the colour print option for any other use than personal family pikky's. If you are wanting to use this for any small buiseness the fax option appears to only send a page at a time per fax if there is another option i can't find it, so as it spend's a lot of time in the shower and doesn't pay the bills very quickly you may get a bit frustrated but general quality if your patient is ok I would recomend a better fax for small buisenesses, but fine for home use. every now and then. my brother say's the copy function is pretty handy my real brother that is. Don't be mistaken the machine don't talk, though it does make some random noises a kind of high pitched squeel not to sure what it's trying to say when that happens but if you press the menu button a few times it stop's singing in the shower many people have tried to find my menu button when they here me singing but it aint been found yet. There are a few thing's you can get around with this machine it works well a a little coppier as my brother said and you can ruduce and inlarge and scan just press the option button on the left hand side and then scroll for size with the arrow buttons next to the menu not bad for a little home office. You can also get your photocopy cartridges refilled rather than buying new this can be a great deal cheaper and it's not hard to find local shop that will refill them for you we get ours done in Cartridge world potters bar, but th
ere is a good company called cartridge family that i think will dispose of unwanted cartridges aswell as refilling or selling you refills, we used to use them in our office at my previous job and they were pretty reliable and deliver quickly to keep your ink flowing and your photocopier going as it cleans itself silly again. The multi function's of this coppier printer fax are variable and many but all about average or low in quality for the end product agian don't get this for a company but good enough for the shower.
