I have owned one of these for 3 months and it has been a nightmare. It constantly loses the wireless signal and login. I have to re-set up the wireless and codes 4-5 times a day although my multiple laptops happily work over my home wireless network without fault. Please do not buy one of these.

This has to be the worse printer I have ever owned, why did I not stick with HP. The worse thing is it uses ink without printing anything, it is constantly cleaning and takes so long to do so, where does the ink go? I have only managed to print 3 colour items before it informed that one of the inks had run out. Awful machine DO NOT BUY IT.
