Summary: As a semi-retired attorney, I cringed every time I used my very nice home/small business printer to print out 100 pages at a time...(which happens every now and then). So I took a chance and bought this (approximately)10 year old refurbished heavy-duty printer. I had to buy a $35.00 printer/computer cable from radio shack to make it go. But the set-up is just a 'plug and use' and it is wonderful...
Took them months and they sent parallel port for my Apple, gave it away.

Summary: I phoned and phoned the seller as months went by. Specified apple in initial order and phone calls. It arrived before I moved. Kept it in the box till I moved to Hawaii. It was parallel port IBM, the oldest model that would not work on my Apple computer. I gave it away, then walked to Office Max and got a brand new Brother Laserwriter that was under a hundred dollars, fast and very high resolution, blowing away what these people sent me. Do not use them...
Summary: I bought this printer for $151 (after S&H) used. The only problem was that I thought it would have an Ethernet port like the 4250 but apparently the 4200 model is parallel only. Not really a problem though when you consider the printer comes with 2 additional connection slots for upgraded connectivity.
Summary: Printer was delivered quickly and looks almost new. Working great and would buy another. First page jammed because I did not see some tape on a roller that I should have removed. After that works great.
Summary: After used the printer for 3 months, I am happy to say that the print quality is no different than a NEW printer. At first I did encounter the grinding noisy, after change the Swing Plate Gear, the noisy did stop. When I open the printer I notice that the inside of the printer was very clean so I assuming that the seller might not aware the problem when shipped. After all, I believe I got a good product.
Summary: We needed to replace a similar laser printer we've had for years that finally quit working correctly. We decided to get the exact same model (no longer being manufactured) because our Unix server and software is configured for it already. This printer looks like new, even though it was refurbished! Arrived very clean, although they could have used something less messy to pack it in. It was well-packed, but they used lots of Styrofoam popcorn to fill the box.
