Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed printer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

That is correct. You do not need a transformer for this printer; you just need a power plug adapter.

Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you

You're welcome. I checked the full descriptions for this printer model; it supports both 110v and 220v:
