      Disadvantages

      Good Printer for the basic necessities

      What I wanted - a basic printer/scanner that's easy to use, easy to set up and easy to forget about when I don't need it.

      What I got - a basic printer/scanner that's easy to use, easy to set up and likes to occasionally make very loud noises if I forget to turn it off!

      Overall, this is a brilliant printer, as it does exactly what it says on the tin - it prints, it scans and it photocopies. That is all I need, and it is great. This probably wouldn't be what you were looking for if you wanted professional printing, but it's ideal for any university students or career focused individuals, that only need a printer to print the bare essentials. For the price, you can't go wrong!

      Set Up
      This was a breeze - I put the CD in and was good to go. It took about 20 minutes in total to set up, but once that was done I was home and dry. I've never had to reinstall anything, and anyone else can plug their laptop in and print without issue.

      Printing
      The speed of the printer is good, if a little loud. The paper does need to be really straight, and it can be easy for the printing paper to slip a bit, so that you end up with wonky essays! Not a good look. It prints pretty quickly, one sheet takes a few seconds. The ink runs out pretty quickly, and though it's not particularly expensive, it's not cheap either!!!

      Scanning
      Works like a dream! Honestly had no problems with this aspect of the printer. Once you've read the handbook, using it is pretty straightforward, but DO MAKE SURE YOU READ THE HANDBOOK! Seriously, don't make my mistake and just try mashing buttons. It doesn't end well.

      Reliability
      Well, it's not broken down on me yet! I've had it for about 6 months, and have had no real problems with it. Installing the ink is easy, and it's a pretty well behaved printer overall.
