Love this printer

Bookworm2, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I know it's time to get another printer, a newer one, but this is a workhorse that I like so much that when my first one died, and I couldn't find this same model, new, I bought a used one. Glad I did. It's fast, does the job of making nice copies and is very dependable.

This has been an absolute workhorse for our organization

Scott D. Walters, Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: We used up the toner that came with it, replaced that, and then mowed through most of that to the tune of hundreds of thousands of pages. Our non-profit prints sign up sheets, count sheets for field volunteers, petitions, fliers, and other things on this. It's been a workhorse.

  • Summary: This printer jams all the time. Tech support advised using 24 lb paper, and this worked! So: Tech support knows about the jam. They know the problem can be fixed with heaver paper...but why won't they provide a fix that works with 20lb paper?

nice printer

lisa haney, Amazon
29 March 2006
  • Summary: i got this printer 'cause my old HP was jamming, and this one works just fine... though I wish the cardstock didn't shoot out the back! Also, duplex printing on cardstock is a no-go, 'cause the duplex printing mechanism is at the top of the printer, where only regular papers can go.
