Great Little MFC Machine

by Robert Hakes on 11/3/2010

Easy to Install and Use. The installation was flawless on both my Compaq desktop, running XP Pro and my Dell laptop, running Win 7 Pro. This little machine is quite speedy on print-jobs and FAX receiving, and its flat-bed scanner works well. Its only shortcoming is the lack of a document feeder for the flat-bed scanner, but that's understandable, given the small size and footprint. The individual C-M-Y-K ink cartridges make for accurate color and ink economy. All-in-all; a fantastic MFC machine.
