    • Terrible choice in printer

      from Calgary, AB on September 17, 2018

      Cant say a whole lot of good about this printer. If its not connection issues every time you go to use its any other number of errors like jamming brand new paper and saying load paper while there is paper in with the casette closed and engaged as it should be or any other thing that could go wrong. If youre thinking about buying this i would keep looking. i cant recall a time ive used this thing in the last year since buying that it hasnt taken atleast 30 minutes of F'ing around with it for a simple print. Garbage just an awful product.

    • Worst printer in existence

      from Toronto, ON on September 12, 2018

      I never break stuff, but I got so frustrated with this printer I actually physically destroyed it!! Never buy one! Over complicated. User interface completely not user-friendly. You would save more time and money going to the library and printing there. Even that will be faster than using this printer!! Please, don't buy it!

    • It is so bad

      from Calgary, AB on July 14, 2018
