Excerpt: I bought this printer for home use. It was very easy to setup and install to my computer. It makes very nice copies and prints out from computer nicely. It is a little noisy when it is running, but I set the sleep mode to 3 minutes so it quiets down real fast. The active hum is not very loud at all but the printing action is louder. No noise at all once it goes into sleep mode. It is very responsive and does not take very long to warm up before printing.
