Summary: Prints well in a wired network. Can't get it to work wireless. Came well packed, and was as advertised. Seller said it did not have a page counter or toner use indicator--but it does (had to add toner immediately.) Good little machine that prints B&W at much low cost than inkjets.
Summary: First of all, as with any printer, this one is not perfect. However, if you read the quickstart guide and follow the instructions, it is fairly easy to set up. You have several connection options.. I also appreciate that the drivers work well with terminal services.
Great printer, but DON'T use thier wireless setup disk!

Summary: The reason I bought this particular printer (and, I'm guessing, the biggest reason most other people bought it) is because it was a cheap wireless laser printer. The problem, as anyone can see by reading the reviews, has been the installation of the printer on a home wireless network.
Summary: Had a few issues getting it setup, but love it since I got it working. I should have done this a long time ago and saved a fortune on ink cartridges. I can live in a monochrome world for not having any printer problems.
Summary: I think the printer is good. It will print out about 12,000 copies on a laser cartridge and they are inexpensive. I like the way it prints from the top of the machine rather than from the front. I will really save on ink and that is most important.
Summary: This printer is easy to set up if you connect it to your computer USB port using a cable (not included). However it is more chalenging to set it up as a wireless printer. It took more than two hours to my friend, who is IT computer network specialist to set it up.
Summary: I have printed about 100 pages through the wireless feature and the printer performed flawlessly. I might have given the rating an excellent but i only have the printer a week so i am not sure how long the toner or drum will last but the printed pages look very good.
Power hungry and challenging to configure, but great B&W text quality and cost per page.
