Printer model: Rio Pro

Same day reply and gave all the information I could need to fix the issue I had and it worked first time

Printer model: Rio Pro 360

4 stars were given because the printer was literally bought a month and a half ago and instead of just swapping it out with a new one, we had to go through the manufacturers warranty process. I will say, from the time I shipped it out to the time I got it back was great. Hardly any time passed.

It was strange what my problem was but support was quick to isolate it with a few pics sent to them. Very happy with the support.
