Summary: For some time now I've needed a color laser (with duplex of course!!) but couldn't justify the cost of it. However with my previous Epson 3540 although it was good it still didn't meet my printing needs plus with inkjet cartridges being as expensive as they are!!
Summary: Well despite the fact that once the unit arrived in town, it bounced around in the back of a FedEx truck for almost a week before they actually delivered it and the box looked like it had been through a war, the product was undamaged. (to my surprise) The unit works well on all functions.
Excerpt: Not 100% compatible with Mac OS 10.8.2. Couldn't do firmware update with my current OS but other wise it works great!Easy setupDrivers were avaible on the webHas iPhone print utilityFast and quiet.Barley draws power when in deep sleep.The front cover is a little flimsy but not bad.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality, Quiet, The Sleep Mode Is Great
Summary: I bought this unit to serve my needs at home. I use my computer for all my personal finance and needed a laser for printing checks that won't run in the rain. I also have two young sons, so I wanted to upgrade to color for printing photos and for their school and scout projects.
Excerpt: we bought this for our office to replace our ink jet multi-purpose printer. Original concerns of purchasing a refurbished model quickly vanished when we saw 1)the box was brand new 2) the machine appeared brand new 3) manufacturer warranty is for one year
Pros: Auto duplexing is great, Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality printing
Excerpt: Getting $300 off brand new one and still getting one year warranty is a good deal. I gave it 4 stars because the front lid does not fully close (something is wrong with a latch) but the machine is working just as expected.
Excerpt: Network setup was noobie friendly. Can allow DHCP or static setup. I assigned a static IP and software for network found it faster than windows finds devices. Toner is pricey from Brother, but aftermarket provides great toners.
Pros: Easy software setup, Efficient, Fast, Great standard features, Network Scanning, Sharp Detail
