Summary: I've used this printer for more than 5 years now. I use it mainly to print articles that i want to preserve, annotate or proof. About 5-10, 20-30 page articles per week, many of which have fairly complex graphics. By rough estimates i have taken more than 25000 prints so far. The output is fairly fast, the operation is hassle free and intuitive, and the print quality is excellent.
Summary: This was possibly the best electronics purchase I ever made. After years of wasting money buying ink cartridges, I was fed up and bought this cheap laser printer. 7 years later, I'm still printing odds and ends without ever replacing the toner. Tax Return 2011 just printed with clear dark crisp numbers and letters.
Good deal! Can't go wrong with this seller and their products!!!

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've had this printer for at least 7 years now. Only now am I considering that the toner cartridge finally needs to be replaced (I've taped up the optical holes to trick it into lasting longer and fake out the sensor). I'm reluctant to replace it because it's been so awesome. Slow and ugly, but reliable and a real serious value. I'll be looking for a new toner cart soon.
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: I bought this printer before university, knowing that I would be printing articles, essay, drafts, etc. I wanted something reliable and more economic than the 10 cents a page cost at the library printer. Well, I didn't expect that it would see me through undergrad and halfway through grad school, and it's still going. I purchased it five years ago and it's still awesome. Print quality is professional.
Summary: This printer is simply A FRICKEN MIRACLE! I've had this thing well over 5 years, still have it today, it is still going strong with the ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER TONER! I've went through several thousand pages at least. I NEVER replaced the toner!
Summary: I got this printer in early 2007 and it's still working almost 5 years later. I have never changed the toner. I think I paid around $80 for it on Amazon. I don't print every day but I have printed enough where I"m rather surprised that this baby just keeps on printing with no ink-free streaks. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable laser printer who doesn't want to spend a whole lot of money.
Summary: I've owned this printer for years, and it has never once failed me. It's a workhorse. I've printed ridiculous amounts of stuff on it. I'm looking at it right now and feeling a surge of gratitude. In an era when most technology is designed to fail after a few months, this just keeps on printin', year after year...
