Summary: Been using this printer for more than 2 years. Simple operation. Great yield. Cartridge and drum are reasonably priced if replacement is needed. I am really pleased with the performance. Great for home office.
Very fast, easy to set up with Mac OS X, and cheap

Summary: I had considered purchasing a laser printer in the past, but my little inkjet seemed more cost-efficient. Now that I'm into my dissertation and need to print 20+-page articles every few days - sometimes 9 or 10 at a time - the inkjet is no longer useful for my purposes. I saw this printer for very cheap at Staples and decided to go for it. I am unsure about real-life cost-effectiveness, since I've only had the printer for a few days.
Summary: I have had this printer for over a year now and am very happy with the ease of use and quality of prints. But I can't say this strongly enough--as other reviewers have pointed out, DO NOT CHANGE the toner when the alert lights comes on! I put electrical tape over the sensor eyes like others have recommended OVER 8 MONTHS ago and I am still get quality prints!! I use it several times a week and it's still going strong.
Summary: I picked this printer up for $69.00 with free 2-day shipping from Amazon shortly after realizing how much it was costing me to print B&W pages on my HP all-in-one printer. This printer is remarkable in it's simplicity. Plug it in, and it works. There's only one button (which doubles as a status light) that can be used to bring the printer out of stand-by or to print a test page.
50,000+ pages and still going... 'nuff said. The little printer that could...

Summary: I bought this thing to print out flyers. And I print out 10,000 a time. Granted I'm just printing addresses, no graphics but it just keeps going and going and going and going.... Toner is expensive as it is with any printer, which is why I buy locally rebuilt toner cartridges from a little shop here. If you do that, it reduces the cost greatly and makes it very affordable.
Summary: I prefer laser printers over ink jets. This one is a great small laser printer. Fast, reliable and compact. The one I got is in great shape. If you are not looking for those all in one machines, this one is a great choice.
