Summary: I received this printer as a Christmas gift a few years ago. It was working well until a few months ago. Color output and web printing works fine, but when I try to print a document in just black and white, there are gaps and text is missing. I'm going to try and leave the printer off for a few days to see if the hardened ink softens. If anyone has any tips or assistance, please feel free to contact me.
Summary: I've read AWSOME reviews on this printer. For the price bracket it is in, I've heard it is a great printer that does the job well! After many months of research and reviews and articles, I desided to purchase this printer. I got it from officemax.com for about $60 after rebate. It was delivered for free 2 days later. I tore open that box like a kid on Christmas morning! Only to discover, after hours of trying, it would not install. First I was getting driver errors.
Summary: I got this for $40 at Staples after rebates. My HP just died, and I needed something quick. For that money, it's a bargain. But you get what you pay for. PROS - Inexpensive AIO CONS - Stand-alone copier is disappointing, printing is a bit slow Printer - Works fine, but quite slow Scanner - Works fine Photo printer - No experience Ink - Uses 4 catridges, a plus. The cartridges are easy to load, and the software monitors ink level, that's nice.
Summary: you pretty much get what you pay for with this cx3810. software is great because you can choose to only install the printer's drivers, and not all the bloated propietary software that comes on the disc. easy to set up, easy to use. but it does print SLOW. so if speed if a necessity, dont buy this printer. and the copy function is only 1 copy a time, meaning u have to press the button each time you want to make 1 copy.
