    Just what it says on the box.

    Did a lot of research before replacing our long-serving inkjet printer when it suddenly died. This one ticked the boxes we needed to tick. In the flesh it was smart, surprisingly compact, and had been very effectively packaged. Setting up was straightforward, though the manual is probably too concise for users who are not at ease with technology. Downloading the driver for Mac El Capitan was simple. And - the crucial feature - it does what it claims to do efficiently and well. I'm already happy. If it lasts anywhere near as long as my last printer I shall be very happy indeed.
