Summary: Bought this all-in-one a year ago. It malfunctioned after 3 months, and the replacement unit now produces splotchy copies, caused by the toner leaking from the drum (less than 3,000 total copies). Replacement toner drums cost about $80; I'm unwilling to spend more money on the unit, not knowing if a new drum will solve the problem. Panasonic used to be top-of-the-line but no longer offers telephone support.
Summary: Had a problem replacing cartidge - unit would not close. Attempted to contact Panasonic without success (phone calls, E-mail). Contacted repair service listed on Panasonic website, but told that they do not service this unit. Also cartridges expensive and do not last as expected. Now stuck with this useless equipment. Would like Amazon to intercede with Panasonic.
Summary: The printer itself works ok...prints fine, fax works great, scans are mediocre-even from the glass because they turn out lopsided, printing envelopes or labels always turn out crooked as well and after having the machine for about 5 months I started having a line down the center of ADF scans and faxes but that was gone after I opened the lid and vacuumed.
Summary: This product was easy to take out of the box and set up. The paper tray and the lid feel a little loose and junky. It requires additional cables to connect to a computer or network -- either ethernet or a USB cable with a specific end type to plug into the printer. It was advertised as Mac friendly. The software disk that came with it was Windows only. Usually with printers, that's okay, because you can either use a built in Mac driver or find one online.
Good all-in-one black and white laser printer; bad manual feed
26 September 2010
Summary: I did not find the Amazon product page clear about what type of printer this was when they offered it for review; so let me clarify that this is a BLACK-AND-WHITE LASER multi-function printer that copies, scans (in color), and faxes. The printer setup instruction sheet (see my customer image above) contains the standard small and hard-to-decipher graphics, but the setup is fairly easy to figure out.
Pros: 1. Максимальная универсальность (быстрый принтер, цветной сканер с автоподатчиком, копир, факс) 2. Аппарат сетевой (подключается прямо в локальную сеть) 3. Недорогой для такого набора функций.
Cons: 1. Дорогие расходники (картридж никто не заправляет) 2. Некачественный копир и сканер - оставляет серый фон. Особенно при копировании книг, когда крышка закрывается неплотно. 3. Слишком маленький экранчик и без подсветки (слова сокращенные до неузнаваемости) 4. Драйвер для Windows 7 только на английском (и то еще поискать надо) 5. Неудобная утилита сканирования
