This printer is fine for printing routine office documents

J. Mason, Amazon
15 January 2015
  • Summary: This printer is fine for printing routine office documents; but the quality of detailed graphics and photos is unacceptable. Before buying this printer, I previously owned an entry level HP color Laserjet printer. For printing photos, I'd rate most inkjet printers as 5 stars; but the cost of the consumables is rather high and the print speed is rather slow. By comparison, I'd rate my old HP color Laserjet as 4 stars in the area of graphics and photo print quality.

Too many flaws prevent this printer from being a worthwhile investment

Joseph Toschlog, Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: This was my first home color laser printer and I had very high hopes for it. Unfortunately, after encountering problem after problem, I am ultimately unhappy and dissatisfied with this printer and would gladly return it were it not much too late to do so. The following reasons are why I would not recommend this printer to anyone. 1. RAM: The printer ships with only enough RAM to print documents.

Awesome printer, high quality results, and great cost

Jennifer, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: I don't have a lot to say...it's a printer, and I don't print a ton of stuff. It prints quickly, and there's no ink to dry. I love this printer, simple as it is. You need to upgrade the memory for high-resolution printing, which is only $25 on Amazon. (I have a memory upgrade on the way but have no input on that topic regarding this printer, yet.) I don't know if there's a newer version of this or not, but I'm extremely happy with this one especially for the price.

Customer Support disappointment

S. Lynn W., Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this printer Nov 2012. A year and a half. It's streaking yellow on the precise vertical edge of the page OUTSIDE of the print area. OK, I had just changed the toner color streaking. After all of the FAQ's and troubleshooting guides I was told the unit was out of warranty and any cost would be "on you (me)". I didn't ask for warranty as I knew it was out of protection. I just wanted some help KNOWING what was wrong in my issue not a repair or replacement.

works great

Tammy M., Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had this for about a year now and love it. It works well. My only complaint is that it said it needed new toner and i was able to find a site on utube that explained how to reset the toner from the front panel.

Rock Solid

Images Per Second "futurist", Amazon

  • Summary: If all pieces of technological equipment were designed this way, life would be far less frustrating. This printer just plain works. It prints clear, precise, beautiful color prints and quickly prints black and white documents. Whether you're printing a recipe from the 'net or a snapshot from you smartphone, the results are consistently excellent.

This printer is garbage

Spencer, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: Every time this thing enters sleep mode it completely shuts down. The only way to get it to work again is to uninstall it and re-install it. What a joke! I thought this was a safe purchase because I previously bought a black & white Brother printer and I love it. Just goes to show you, you can't trust company brands. I strongly recommend NOT buying this print.

Quiet operation, quiet from support too!

Justin Buist, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: When an older and very expensive HP inkjet gave up the ghost I put this in its place. Setup was easy. I honestly can't remember if I made this a wired Ethernet printer or if I just put it on the Wifi network. Probably WiFi given the location of it, and lack of ethernet ports there. You know what's awesome about that? I don't even know, because nobody's had a problem with it. I never have to look at the thing.

Using as a wine label printer

Penguin, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: I wanted a good color laser printer. I use this to print out my wine labels. Does a great job and unlike injet printers, my labels don't run when wet. I would buy this product again.

best item for my purposes

scottyrocks "scottp", Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: I looked long and hard before buying a color printer. Inkjets are now out of the question due to the changes made to them in recent years regarding the cartridges. Why should anyone have to change all the cartridges because one ran out? It's a money making scheme for the printer companies and I will not be a part of it. So I looked at a bunch of laser jet printers. Some were out of the question because of the prices, or toner cartridge issues, or bad reviews.
