Summary: I love this printer. No problems with installation and the output is sharp and attractive. The footprint is smaller than the average laser printer and the cost was extremely reasonable. It's been months and I've not had to replace the starter toner kit -- I did reset it once and expect to have to change the black soon. I'm very pleased!
Excerpt: Neat compact color laser printer. Had a few initial hickups trying to get the wireless printer recognized, but after manually installing it via the on-board set-up menu, the printer finally 'discovered' my network. Works great now! bright, vibrant colors.

Excerpt: I wanted a multi-function printer with a scanner and fax. But ended up settling on this one because there was a pretty good deal. When I hooked into my computer, the drivers installation was easy. I thought I had to plug in the toners and surprised to see the toners were pre-installed.The printing was pretty smooth but kind of loud. I am yet to test this printer with wireless or with a smartphone.

Excerpt: This printer was a little tedious to set up, since the drive disc didn't read properly. But after downloading the software, installation was smooth. The printer is EXTREMELY quiet and has a very clear images so far. I am very satisfied with this printer, so far. One nice feature is how the printer goes into sleep mode, but is easily awoken easily.
