Wirelessly Set Up in NO time
It literally only took me 15 minutes to set up this printer via WiFi and 12 of that was for the CD to install the software. I was worried about this due to the reviews I had read, but was pleasantly surprised, especially considering that the WiFi I was using is notoriously bad. Such a good experience, I am buying another for myself (this one was a gift). The onscreen menu is a little confusing but I am sure I can figure it out if I spend a little time with it.

Easy To Use + Cheap
Very good printer for the price. Although printing speed does lack somewhat compared to its competition, it makes up for its ease of setup and use. I needed a printer urgently to print some of my portfolio pieces and what came out was more than sufficient color quality and consistency. I recommend this surely for anyone who is looking for a bang for your buck.

The instructions are not complicated. They give a CD you put in your laptop and you follow the directions. For the initial set up, get a USB cable for printers.
It's not included but once you do the initial set up via USB cable your good to go. No more cable needed. I connected my Iphone 5s to printer via Air print.
If you choose not to the USB cable initial set up , you will be frustrated because it won't connect via wifi at first. I think that what most people are upset about. Once you connect it once via USB cable it pick up your wifi and your done, no need for the cable

Easy Setup for Mac
Although not a 'Techie' I had absolutely no problems setting up this printer to my desktop Mac via USB and to my Macbook Pro via wiFi. Just followed instructions.
Price is extremely good for the range of features offered and initial test printings look good.
