Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 78reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 stars All went smooth on the install but had to call the company to figure out how to scan. And I have yet to figure out how to get the scans to the file I want to store them in. Also, we re-use paper (print on the other side for office stuff) and it would be nice to be able to slip in a page i want to use without pulling the paper tray out. October 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice printer This printer is a perfect size for small spaces. Wish the paper trays would not have to be manually swtiched from letter size to photo size. When printing remotely doesn't help when you have to go to the printer to swtich trays. . Envelope printing difficult if only one envelop is in tray. Customer service techs have been very responsive. October 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Print quality needs work I've only had it a couple of weeks. Functionally it is very solid and runs well so far... but, there are a few things that I should warn others about. To hook it up via wire, both the network port and USB port are located in the center of the middle of the unit - you need to lift the entire scanner portion up to plug it in, then run the cables along a guide inside the machine leading out the back - very odd design. Every other printer I have used across the decades has ports on the outside. The quality of the print is pretty mediocre and the finished print is not very dark at all. Perhaps this is how the 'inkvestment' tech works to save you ink? Still, I've had cheap throwaway printers with better print quality to be honest. The printer tray has to be completely pulled out of the machine entirely and put on your desk in order to load paper, which is also odd in my opinion. I have not tried the fax portion but scanning is a breeze with one exception: in the scanner software (Control Center 4,) it uses a 'retry' or 'reload' icon to represent cropping instead of the typical frame corner icon you would expect, which is also on the help documentation. Once I figured out this error it runs great. October 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by except for scan software, very good printer This is a very good printer which replaces my older Canon printer that could not be fixed after 2 years.. The only problem i have with it is the scanning software which takes forever to do a page and creates a doc to large. I have use the scan commands in my PDF software (Fox it) instead. I have to scan a lot of multipage docs which is why i got this model with a doc feeder. October 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not impressed Color printing is not very good, true red prints orange October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Multi function printer Very fast printer. Photos are excellent. One of the best features is that the Fax portion works very well with ATT Uverse VOIP phone line. Multi sided pages are printed flawlessly and very fast. October 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just plain happy with it and all the features I am very pleased with my new printer and features October 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by good printer with small footprint Wireless drivers are not totally compatible with iMac using El Capitan so I connected via USB and no problem. I can't use phone app, but not really necessary so I'm good.Printer is fairly quiet and quick. Touch screen is very intuitive.Wireless connectivity problem aside, I am pleased with the purchase.
