Easy to set up

I have read a number of reviews here suggesting how difficult this printer is to set up. Sorry to contradict but I found it the easiest ever, including WiFi and cartridge alignment. And I have owned more printers than I have had hot dinners. The quick guide was perfectly sufficient and allowed me to complete the task from opening the box to printing in 15 minutes. I find printing quality and speed very good. If I have any slight gripes they would be that the cartridges need to be pushed quite hard into position and that the front panel allowing access to the carriage is a little "flimsy". Otherwise good value for money. One final point would be to shop around for the cartridges as prices can vary considerably.

do you want to print 6"x4" photos don't buy this !

I bought this printer to be able to do a basic range of printing tasks, one being printing photos to put in small frameless frames. this printer doesn't allow to print full 6"x4" prints it leaves a 1/2" white strip down the edge or along the bottom depends on layout. it's a basic printer i appreciate that but come on i had printers 20 years ago better than this....
