Excerpt: This printer was easy to set up and use. It is compact and smaller than the others tested. We liked the handset. The screen is a good size. This printer was slower than the other in most tests. Fax and scan speeds were average. The colours in the photos we printed were generally fairly soft and not as vivid as some of the other printers’. The black was not as black as we felt it should be.
