Feedback from other users:
“A great buy, the best printer I’ve used in a long time. Works well on different systems and operating systems like PC, Mac, Android devices, IOS and ePrint”.
“I’m surprised at how quiet this printer is”.
“A delightful printer to use. I like that it can print double- sided and prints very fast”.
“Produces excellent quality prints for double sided monochrome output. Very useful network port and it was easy to set up. I was able to use the printer from my Ipad by using the “Airprint” app. I’d imagine that it is very cost effect to run compared to a coloured laser jet printer. We’ll find out sooner or later”.
