A multifunction printer that does its job, I was afraid of the resolution of the scan, but the quality of the scan and printing is very acceptable for office use. Otherwise: 1) The paper tray is open on the outside (paper is dusty), which is dumb because there is an interstellar vacuum behind the printer that could have been used to embed the paper completely in the printer . 2) Too bad the scanner lid does not have a lot of vertical compliance in order to scan thick documents like books keeping the lid flat. 3) Installation on windows with the CD is easy if you choose the fast mode. It's not very clear when to installed programs (driver + utilities while on my old Epson it ' was rather pilot + software scan + useless utilities lol), in short it works. 4) The USB cable is not in the box like the majority of printers. 5) It is necessary to have a wifi point type box or router to operate the wifi, it does not connect to the printer directly with his computer wifi. // I'll let you know for the toner life.
In 15 years I bought 7 inkjet printers, which had to clean change the print head, have to buy color cartridges to be able to print in black... In short, all this, and this model perfectly fulfilled his job ! I use it wired on a workstation, wifi on a laptop and tablet android. No worries, the scan and print are ok, a little quieter than my previous Pixma inkjet. If you do not need color, this printer is for you, more expensive to buy but will already be profitable in the medium term!
