Summary: I had leftover toner and drum for this machine from a similar printer that died so I decided to buy this used unit. This machine works better than my defunct one so I'm glad I took the chance. I've been using it for over a month with no hiccups.
Summary: I bought this unit as most users rated it well on various Net sites, and I really liked the design--it looks like a miniaturized laser printer, and not a hybrid laser/inkjet with the feed paper jetting out (and getting exposed to dirt and dust). The integrated paper drawer was a big plus for me! Besides looking great, this printer is sooo SMALL... I've found the text output fabulous--as good as any laser I've seen.
Summary: For my home business needs, this printer is absolutely perfect! For the price, I get good quality black and white printing, faster and more cost efficient than an inkjet printer. Definitely worth the investment.
Summary: I bought this for under $150 on sale. Mine came with a rebate so it was even lower. The speed at which pages come out of the printer make it well worth the price paid. If this thing dies in six months I would have gotten my money's worth and I wouldn't even object to getting another one! I do get some of the curling mentioned but I'm also using a $2 ream of paper. I'm sure with better paper it will be fine. The pages are far from unusable though.
Works great for the price! Under $120 for 20 ppm printer!

Summary: This machine has worked great for our family's basic black and white printing needs. It's been fast, small, and puts out quality just as nice as $500 laser printers. I have been using it regularly and just replaced my first cartridge, very economical compared to others I've had. This machine is already saving me $$. The USB 2.0 works just fine for me.
Works well for the price--but it is NOT a hi-speed USB 2.0 printer (and it's noisy)

Summary: The printer is a good value, and has worked without problem for the two weeks I've had it. It is much noisier during printing than the other desktop laser printers I've owned--sounds a bit like a jet aircraft revving up. The noise only occurs during the printing process (when not in the act of printing, the printer is dead silent), so the noisiness is quite brief unless you are printing for long stretches of time (in which case you'd want a more durable printer anyway).
Summary: I got this printer yesterday, and will update this review if I encounter any problems, but so far everything has been absolutely beautiful. I had a painless install/setup, and it printed quality work immediately. There was no curling of any pages, and no break-down while printing well over than 100 pages back-to-back. I do not use heavy weight paper (I use the 20 lb stuff), and I saw no curling at all.
