Summary: Replaced a dinosaur, 100+ lb, old laser/toner copier with this unit. It impressed everybody with the quality, connectivity as a computer scanner/printer, 2-sided everything easily, and the guy who installed it loved its 42 lb. package.
Summary: We use this printer every day for anywhere from 200-2000 pages a day, and we have nothing but problems. Paper jams occur all the time everywhere inside the printer all day. Its awful!! The other functions work great ( fax, scan, etc.) but don't print anything!
Summary: WE HATE THIS PRINTER. Two of us share it. Every single time something is put into the MP tray a message pops up asking if we want to use something beside the default. We always hit "no", but it takes several tries before the screen accepts our answer and then will print. But it doesn't matter what you feed - the default option is irrelevant. It only exists to have a pop-up screen that makes you want to punch the printer.
Paper jam galore... and don't even think about duplex.

Summary: The scanning feature works great, but the biggest downside is the paper feed mechanism for the printer. It loves grabbing multiple sheets at a time. Because the sheets are generally staggered, it constantly misaligns the printed page to be far off-center or even split across two pages. If you want to do duplex, when it picks up two pages, you will randomly be given a few single-sided pages with your print.
Summary: Used this printer moderately for 2 years, no more than 2,000-6,000 pages/month, given it's rating at 80,000 ppm figured it would last longer. The good: The scanner worked very good for what I needed it for, pretty quick at 300dpi into a pdf, the automatic document feeder worked well and rarely pulled more than one page through at a time, perfect for what I needed it for... I used this function a lot. Printed fine till the end.
