I should have had all the facts
9 May 2013
Summary: after I bought the printer I discovered that my mobile phone can print photos with downloaded apps and software but not this model and would i have this information prior to purchasing this printer which is a fantastic printer I would have bought the next model up which is the workforce series and...
Summary: Without a doubt this printer is an ink guzzler! It will not print easily on anything other than A4 paper, including card or vellum , I have found it quite frustrating. Do NOT try compatible ink, it will mess up the printer and be a big waste of time and cash.
Summary: It is a practical and as good as described, but it is really noisy and not recommended to be used at home if you have sleeping children! I tried to use non OEM inks. Unfortunately, it was not functioning very well especially when trying to print photos.
Summary: I was not sure which 'all in one' printer to buy, comparisons tend to be confusing. Having a top-end Cannon for photograph printing, I only needed reliability , a reasonable scanning and copying ability and low ink consumption.
Summary: Heres a few things you should know before you buy this printer. Firstly it does not come with a printer USB cable. If you want to connect to it via WiFi you will need to have a router! The printer does not connect directly to the laptop/computer and requires a router as a middle man.
Summary: I can't fault the printer, the scanner is excellent and the print quality is good as is the build quality; it does everything it should at a very good price. Although in truth it's a little bit too big for home use, but I guess it's not pretending to be with 'Office' in the name.
Summary: Just bought this product to replace my old Photo RX 560. Printing photographs is a secondary use for me, but according to the technical details shown by Amazon, a 10 x 15cm photograph takes "approx 54 seconds" which was just about OK for my putpose. BUT BEWARE.
Summary: Printer is slow, quality when set on economy could be better. Have to make most decisions through PC, i.e., cannot resume two sided printing at printer when you turn over pages, have to go back to PC to resume - bit if a pain.
Summary: My old Canon pixma gave up the ghost after 5 yrs so I decided to get an all in one printer and get rid of the very old scanner to make more space. That makes sense and these printers are very cheap and Epson seems cheap to run re the ink.
