  • Stuart Elliott 31 March 2014 2.25 / 5 Value 2 Features 3 Quality 2 Performance 2 OK(i)... but.

    I purchased this as a replacement for a ML380 that we used for continuously-fed labels. This is the first DMP I've used in 20-odd years that didn't have movable tractor feeds, for different sized paper, this model is fixed at continuous A4 only, so I thought 'ah well, I'll use the single sheet mode where the rollers grip the paper to the platen', but there wasn't enough grip to keep the paper from slipping. All in all, not suitable for the job I got it for. :(
