Call it a throw a way printer

Paul Feller "family guy 1", Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Figure its good for a year or so, total copy count under 5000 before you want to throw it against the wall. Driver software is constantly required to be reinstalled. Stops working with no notice.

Solid, standard small-business unit

Cowboy Bill "cowboybill", Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: This Panasonic, like most multi-function printers, is aimed at small businesses and home offices. It does a good job providing most of the print/scan/fax services a small business needs with one unit. The black-and-white prints are good and the scanning is decent for the price. I don't use faxes anymore, so I can't talk about that feature. Basically, like many laser printers at this pricepoint, it does a suitable job.

Great IF you could get toner!!!

garthwaite oil, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: Very solid printer and very easy to use (although installation may try your patience).There is a HUGE issue! There are no toner cartridges available (except for the starter cartridge that comes with the unit). According to Panasonic, they had not anticipated selling as many units so therefore did not manufacture enough toner cartridges. So, if you don't have time to fight with Panasonic for toner, there are plenty of comparible printers out there!

Beware of low ball price!

PGM, Amazon
9 July 2011
  • Summary: Ships with starter toner and you get about 50 or so pages before you need to buy real one at about $45 bucks. So suggested retail is not "real" price.

Good for basic stuff

Rob T "robtish", Amazon
26 April 2011
  • Summary: I have to confess, I have one big problem with this printer, and it may just be my own ignorance: It goes into sleep mode after a while and the only way I can reawaken it is to turn it off and back on. I've checked the manual and don't see any other way. The other problem is that the sheet feed for the scanner doesn't align the page on the tray properly. It's always a bit crooked. On the other hand, it prints very, very fast, and I love that.

Fine printer, installation is painful

M. Hyman "Artist at large", Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: Installation To begin, let me state I'm a very technical user, so I am used to installing software and hardware. The hardware setup is easy,although the pictorial guide to what to do drives me crazy, in that the first steps are often on the right, heading to the left, heading to the middle, and some of the pictures really make no sense.

Good Hardware Suffers from Poor Software

IlPrimitivo, Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: As other have mentioned, this is a well built printer with good speed and nice print quality. The build quality appears good with nice finishes and sturdy parts. The separate toner and drum cartridges are lightweight and easy to handle/install but this model does not yet have the 3rd party support for its consumables. In other words, the toner cartridges are somewhat pricey.

Durchschnittliches Gerät

Heinrich "Edi", Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: Als Drucker noch ganz passabel. Als Fax eine Karastrophe. Jedes 3 Fax kommt mit der Fehlemeldung - Kommunikationsfehler!! Wenn ich mein altes Brother Fax anschliesse, geht alles absolut fehlerfrei durch. Trotz Kommunikationsfehler kommen 50% der Faxe an, der Rest nicht. Oft hat es dann de Empfänger dopplet. Großer Zeitaufwand!!! Auch sind die praktischen Nutzungsmöglichkeiten nicht vergleichbar mit meinem alten Brother Fax.

User Review

Тимофей, citilink.ru
31 March 2011
  • Summary: Если эксплуатация без проблем возможна только в течение года, а затем обязательный ремонт (пусть и гарантийный в течение первых трех лет) — это неудобно.
  • Pros: Стоимость, легкость в работе и настройке, простота работы в сети. Отлично проявил себя как сетевой сканер — простейшая инициация сканирования прямо с панели на компьютер без необходимости бегать к компьютеру нажимать на кнопки, безоказный автоподатчик — очень удобно. У Brother, например, все это сложнее.
  • Cons: Куплено 3 принтера, все работают с разной нагрузкой. Но у абсолютно всех принтеров через 12 месяцев эксплуатации на отпечатках появились полосы, которые не лечатся заменой фотобарабана. Явно вылетает печка. Причем у того, который работал больше всех — и полоса шире всех :-) Конечно, 3 года гарантии, но все же...
