  • Beverley Wells 05 May 2012 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Customer feed back

    This is my first order with your company I found the young lady Mariann very helpful as I an an old aged pensioner I found her product knowledge spot on and I am very happy with the product -I found the set up easy to understand and went ahead with the instructions I am proud I did it myself. I have printed out my first photograph and the quality is great for the price of the machine . Thank you B Wells

  • William Patrick 21 April 2012 4.75 / 5 Value 4 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Whats to Say?

    Whats to Say? By following the instructions it was easy to set up. Not plug and play but this is a fairly complex machine. Once set up it seeems to do all that it should and do it well. Early days yet but I hope it performs as well as my previous Canon machine.

  • Denis Sturman 26 January 2012 4.5 / 5 Value 4 Features 4 Quality 5 Performance 5 Photo Wonderland

    Originally I had done lots of research on the specific printer I needed, Printerland persuade me that the MG8150 might fit my needs, over unavailable MG8250, has it got a CCD scanner, check, it's got a smaller display, no problem, card reader, check, cost is higher than MG8250, check?!?, Airprint, forgot to check, in stock now, check. Set up of the MG8120 to my Windows Vista PC was painless except time to do it. At least a couple of hours needed to go through the manual and ensure you have not missed extra details, like, you can only use the printer in wired to a network mode or wireless, not both at the same time. Set up with a USB Cable, did the Head alignment printed some photo's. WOW excellent results using Easy Photoprint, Monitor to printer was a very decent match. Then wanted to to print from the Wife's Ipad, no such luck. Hold out for the MG8250 if you want Airprint.
