  • Excerpt: I bought this printer as it was on offer with my PC at the Bargain Price of £150 (RRP £349) including a ream of paper & 20 sheets of 1 A4 photo paper. When you use the printer, the first screen you will see is the Printing Shortcuts tab.

  • Cons: Large Footprint, costly Ink cartridges, only a 4x6 size option
