Summary: I bought this because I needed to print a lot of PDFs and didn't want to use my slower color inkjet printer. I had some trouble getting this to recognize my home wireless network, but once I reset it to factory defaults it worked beautifully. I like the speed, compact size, ease of use, and think it's a great addition to my home office. Only thing I wish it did was automatically duplex.
Summary: I bought this printer almost a year and a half ago (March 2011) for about half of the current Amazon price, so this was a real deal. It has served its purpose well -- fast and excellent quality B/W laser printing. I have docked the printer one star because of the quirks with the wireless setup. First, the printer does not stay connected wirelessly to your (Windows 7) PC if you switch between user accounts on your PC or if you reboot your PC.
Pros: — Lives up to 24PPM test rate (Yes, I tested) — Quick and quiet — Toner save is efficient — Mac/PC/Hacked AirPrint friendly
Cons: — Heats up QUICKLY — Prints pages curved (sometimes eats 2 pages) — Goes into "unwakeable sleep mode" after period of time, requiring a restart — Flickers the lights on the same circuit
Excellent quality printer - good experience with Mac OS 10.6

Summary: I purchased this printer a couple of weeks ago and, after having to spend 30 minutes setting it up with my wireless network, am now successfully enjoying using with Mac OS Lion. I read quite a lot of negative reviews on the net about the usability of the product with Mac's but can only say that I cannot share the pessimism....everything is working well. It's fast, cheap and ideal for a home office printer for all the family..
Good printer, installation instructions lacking the needed info

Summary: Once I managed to install the printer correctly, it works very nicely. The wireless installation instructions using a router are missing one crucial step, which you only discover after searching long and hard: first, plug the printer into your router via ETHERNET AND USB, then configure the printer for your wireless network by accessing it through your browser via its IP address.
