Summary: The fact that it can't get through a few pages without stopping to clean itself can be infuriating. Granted, when it works it produces crisp text and decent color. Not as good color as an inkjet with good paper, but it's not supposed to.
Summary: I took my machine out of the box, plugged it in and all was well - it managed to print, copy and scan 1 or 2 page documents. But the moment I started using the Automatic Document Feeder, nothing worked as advertised.
Summary: This printer is OK. I use it every day at work. My main gripe is that it calibrates itself at the most inopportune moments: it calibrates itself before, during, and in-between print jobs. Calibration takes anywhere from 1-5 minutes and cannot be interrupted.
Great laser value & performance, but inkjet a better choice

Summary: Let me address the whiners. First of all, this machine only goes through a calibration cycle approximately 10 minutes after being powered on. Admittedly, this is a bit of a pain, as the procedure lasts 4 minutes.
Summary: We have an IMac that runs both OSX and Vista. We use the machine for both personal and small business use. The Good: This machine prints excellent color quality. Scan quality is OK for standard 8 1/2 x 11 sheets. We use the fax sporadically and it works well.
Summary: I purchased this printer instead of the 2840 due to bad driver reviews associated with the 2840. Unfortunately, the drivers for this device are bad too. Beginning with the minimum install size of 400 MB. Yes, the driver automatically installs all sorts of maintenance and other applications.
Excerpt: So I have just finished my travelling trip and have ended up at my Girlfriends family for a while and as an IT support person I have been tasked with sorting out the entire IT equipment in the house.
Pros: Superb quality, ease of installation, Web based support info
Cons: A bit slow, Network install of printer doesnt always work
Summary: Ich benutze das Gerät inzwischen seit 2010. Die Druckqualität empfinde ich als sehr gut. Das Gerät initialisiert und kalibriert sich häufig schon nach ein paar gedruckten Seiten mit nervig lauten Geräuschen und ist in der Zeit auch nicht benutzbar.
