Excerpt: This might be an excellent machine; we're not sure yet. Set it up, loaded paper - didn't send a print job - but got a paper jam error that we couldn't clear. Got on the phone directly with Dell and went through 50 steps to try and clear the message, but no luck. Dell shipped a replacement printer right away, but we have not set the machine up yet.
Summary: I bought this to use in my one man business. I have given this one star because I found it impossible to use ( no doubt someone with high grade printer knowledge would not agree) However , if you are not tech savvy don't buy this ; the instructions are impenetrable, I never did find the print button, or how to cancel a printing job once it had started. I grew to hate it with a deep and vitriolic passion.
Summary: Ultra compact considering it takes an entire ream of paper. Very solidly constructed as a result. Operates relatively quiet: when the pages start streaming out fast, each with a satisfying "click", you know you're dealing with a quality piece of kit. And the text is beautiful, well above average. Bargain of the year so far.
