Wireless - NOT
Bought this printer as I needed to do some printing and scanning. Purchased at Big W and the price was reasonable. All sorts of problems setting it up wirelessly and the instructions are inadequate. Did manage to get it to print intermittently but would not scan at all. Tried multiple times with the same result. Note, that it does have the option to set up with a USB cable but that cable is not supplied. Hunted around my house and I happened to find a USB cable to fit and now it is finally working.
This printer is a decent purchase if you can get in on sale and don't need to do a huge amount of printing quickly. It prints at a relatively slow speed but the quality is overall pretty good. Connecting it to wifi is easy and the scanner mobile app works well making it easy to digitise documents (one page at a time albeit). As with all printers, the ink is more expensive than buying the actual printer but if you need a decent wireless printer this is a good option for the price.
Would not recommend it.
It works on the slow side - especially when scanning. The ink cartridges seem to last hardly any time and are expensive to replace - $50 for ink when the printer costs $89. I don't like the software that comes with the printer. I now use it only for scanning and print on my laser printer.

Bad set up
Have just installed this printer for a client so he could print from his PC and Ipad. Tried to connect the printer to the router with no joy. Eventually figured out it had to be connected to the router from the mobile app and only then could it use the router. It can now print wirelessly from his desktop PC and his Ipad but can only scan from his Ipad, if you try to scan from the PC it says that it isn't connected and requires the cable. What a joke, there was nothing in the set up guide that I could see that explains to connect the printer in ...this fashion. The fact it would require the cable to scan from his PC is just dumb, we have had wireless printers for a long time that had this basic functionality so I don't understand how it is this difficult to do with the tech we have now.
