Ease of Use


by Kenneth A. on 3/6/2012

I beg you to avoid this awful thing. Purchased in September. Rarely does anything it is supposed to do without some problem. Have owned at least 10 printers or more in my life- rarely had anything but most minor issues easy to resolve myself. I have had to contact support several times, had 1 defective part replaced. Difficult setup. Often does not connect by W-Fi. Prints decently ( and devours ink) about 10% of time- major quality issues most of time. Scanning is fast, but quality is mediocre at best & software sucks (Mac). Too stupid to realize soon enough what a lemon this is. Gonna have to eat the cost. Its still under warranty, but I really don't want another one- its just a REALLY bad model.
