Doesn't work for me

Paul Leddy, Office Depot
9 August 2014
  • Excerpt: My intention was to purchase a simple wireless printer that would print from my smartphone. I misunderstood the product details. A modem is required. I'm on leave of absence / sabbatical and do not have access to the internet except through my smartphone acting as a hot spot. I'm shipping the printer back for a refund.
  • Pros: Good Value

  • Excerpt: I chose this all in one because it had all the options and was wireless to boot! We'll wireless...not so much. Once the test page printed only the copy function was useful. I've reloaded the software 2-3 times and no luck. My home office isn't compatible with a tethered printer. Unfortunate situation but still hopeful for a positive outcome.
