  • Very Good Printer

    09.13.2014 by pursegurl


    this a very good air printer. it works great at home. it was easy to setup not to many problems. it does get tired, a student I print a lot of papers. my papers can be 13 or more pages one sided as the evening wears on it gets tired. I rest it about 15 mins then it is good to go. the only problem I have had is: out of town for the summer it would not connect to my hotspot, library WI-FI, or someone's home WI-FI. so for 3 months I was not able to use it. It is not so small as to be a mobile printer but I need my own printer (less family conflicts), I was not a happy camper. I get home plug in, WI-FI on and it prints just like it had been printing everyday. it works well with my hotspot at home too, weird dude it is. So it loves having a home not traveling around the US. so I call it homeboy.

  • Wonderful Printer (Print, Scan, Copy and Photo)

    PRO: You can't find a better wireless duplex printing machine at this price. It is resonably fast and produces excellent color photos. When setup for Wireless (WiFi) it can support all your printers on your home network. Within minutes of setup my daughter sent 15 pages that she wanted printed duplex (duplex color printing both sides). To prevent any smearing on the flip side of the page, this printer automatically pauses for a few seconds to allow the ink on side one to dry. As it pauses, it will send an onscreen message to the requestor that it is paused for drying (about 5 seconds). CON: The black ink cartridge supplied with this printer is extremely small in capacity. This is not a problem as larger ink cartridges are available at retail (low cost.) If you want to avoid changing them just buy the XL (Hi Yield). The unit did not have a printed manual to describe operation of the printer/paper handling but an online version is available. Comment: some people report paper jamming but I have none. I have seen this complaint on many printers and the cause is usually paper weight and quality. I always use 24 lb Bright White and among all printers including this one - have not experienced jamming. I would avoid using 20 lb low cost paper as it is low in fabric content and tends to be slick.
