Summary: I picked this printer up at Costco right when it was being discontinued for $50 (which is cheaper than the replacement toner cartridges). It's been a great little printer for my home office use. If you can snag one for under $100 you're getting a solid printer for the price. If you have to spend more, I'd take a look at other offerings.
Perfect for Grad School. Affordable, small, and reliable.

Summary: I've had this printer for four years now. I love it. It is quick, I can manually duplex easily, the toner is affordable (especially compared to the ink jet hogs!), and it is very very reliable. Others have said that when it hangs (such as when it runs out of paper), you have to turn it off or reboot your computer. Not true! I have installed all the drivers that came with it, and I get a message on the screen that says that it has run out of paper or whatever.
Cons: This printer stops to print for no reason at all! I used to uninstall and reinstall the driver to make work and this was successful. But now even on uninstalling and reinstalling it does not print. It gives me the error message (roughly)sometimes "The pr
Summary: Inexpensive...toner is much cheaper than inkjet printers...prints very fast and very clean copies....i purchased it as i needed a carbon based toner for my thermofax printing....works perfectly with thermofax machine.
Pros: Most things print pretty well. I can't remember any jams.
Cons: I agree with most comments on this site. I have to reboot my computer any time something happens (eg. forget to load paper...reboot; cancel a job...reboot; forget to load an envelop vs paper...reboot;). I've tried updating drivers, but no luck.
Summary: I have owned this printer for four months. I gave it two stars (don't like it) instead of one (hate it) because if I hated it, I would have dumped it instead of figuring out a way for it to work. When using Vista, I discovered it would not work when used as a shared printer. So I only used it as a direct printer, opening all documents in the computer it is attached to. Not too bad. Then I migrated to Windows 7. And, ... oh, my gosh!
