Summary: I was very happy when I first got it, but performance took a nose dive and hasn't been able to recover. If it's something where I don't care what the printout looks like, it's a great printer. :/

Cons: Horrible "ghosting" after a short time, despite cleaning drum, etc. Pretty much unusable now.

Pros: Good price, works fine with regular paper.
Cons: YOU CANNOT USE RESUME PAPER OR ENVELOPES WITH THIS PRINTER.
