Summary: The paper is the right thickness and the black ink shows up nicely on the printouts. Was leery buying thermal paper over the internet when I couldn't see the quality first hand - will definitely buy this again.
Summary: I nearly sent this printer back thinking the internal LAN function was defective. While most network printers are simply plugged into you router, the router assigns them an IP, and you're off. This printer has a static IP that forces you to change your router's LAN IP to make it work.
