Summary: Not a bad printer, but it is extremely slow. It took a minute from the moment I pushed print till it actually started printing. I've owned it now for about a year or a little longer and I have to replace the fuser and transfer belts on it. The scanner is nice, but it doesn't duplex. Buy something else at this price point and get something better.
Do not waste your money unless you want a new one in 6 months

Summary: I bought this printer at another website and was SO SO excited to find a color laster printer with copy function for as cheap as it was. It worked well for the first few weeks but as time went on it started getting paper jams ALL THE TIME. It got to the point that I KNEW when it was going to jam. If I hadn't printed anything in a while (maybe half a day) it would jam the first sheet.
Summary: I installed this printer easy enough, but after a beautiful test print, it would not print any color files. My first print was smeared (maybe it didn't like photo paper?) but upon printing 20# printer paper, it jammed. The worst part is, I couldn't clear the jam. Levers which should have produced more clearance did not work properly. I called customer service but the person was no help. I returned the unit for a refund.
Summary: Like previous reviewers I too have found this printer to be ok - but only when it's working!! I have often found (4 -5 times) I have to reinstall it as the PC and printer just stop interacting and even using printer cable PC does not always see printer and needs several attempts to get them recognising each other. Never had this problem before.
Summary: The reason we bought a laser printer was to reduce printing costs for our nursery. After replacing the original ink it came with the print quality was not good - we tried new ink cartridges but quality was never a good as the first run.
Summary: 1. Costly toner: average £35 per colour, 4 colours. 2. Printed pages counting: often remind you to change toner if has printed some fixed amount pages. 3. Costly Parts: unlike inkjet printer only change the inks, laser printer not only change toners, it also has to change some other parts.
Summary: July 8th, 2011 Since December 2010 I've installed 4 sets of cartridges at a cost of around £600. The toner cost is outrageous. The toner cartridges that came with the machine needed replacing in under a month and at £150+ for a set, the cost of consumables is out of control. Now the info screen tells me that it requires a new imaging unit (another £110 IF I choose to go ahead).
Excerpt: На редкость отвратительная машина. Долго разогревается и медленно печатает, но это ещё полбеды. Один из существенных недостатков - принтер так и норовит захватить вместо одного листа целую пачку. Из-за этого сложно печатать документы большого объёма и практически невозможна двусторонняя печать - за принтером во время процесса печатания необходим постоянный присмотр.
Pros: много функций
Cons: медленная печать, захватывает бумагу по несколько листов сразу, сложная система кнопок
