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?

  • Summary: I use this printer for a small business and it can handle everything I throw at it. It prints pages very fast, is easy to setup, and the network confirguration only takes a few clicks to install.

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.

Most of our printing is text so we're not too picky but the print quality looks good and the printer is quiet and relatively...
