14:20 – Final Thoughts
One of the things I liked about this printer is that the user on-boarding is a lot simpler: connect to Wifi and that’s it. No drivers to install or tiny screens to navigate.
That said this is a very basic spartan device that relies a lot on your smartphone. Print quality isn’t all that better than their lower cost versions so it’s really a matter of aesthetics and whether or not these cloud features make a difference for you.
