Summary: Yes, this printer does have manual duplex printing and one printing tray. However, it's a very sleek printer with affordable laser toner versus Xerox Phaser. In addition, easy to maintain. The scanning and copying features are also a plus. For example, top tray will scan 35 docs at a time and load them into PDF, Word, etc. Really best value on market and I understand the model that comes with duplexing is always sold out per my Staples rep.
Summary: I normally don't write reviews, but in this case I will make an exception. This printer is expensive, but I knew that going in. It comes in a BIG box, about 3 feet cubed. Unboxing is easy and removing the protective film was a snap. It takes up a pretty good piece of cabinet space. I have NO patience for tech things that are a pain to install and deploy. I have even LESS patience for expensive tech things that are a pain to install and deploy.
Summary: I've had this unit for about 3 months now. I purchased it from OfficeMax during the holiday specials for somewhere in the lower-$300's. I got this to replace an HP inkjet that we used every few months but the ink would go dry in between uses. The inkjet would do double sided printing automatically, which was nice, but the ink was always dry. We got the 1415fnw because I wanted built in wireless with color that I could refill at home.
