Summary: Whilst I have no complaints about the print quality for color and black and white prints (although photos are a bit washed out), this is a noisy printer making it less than desirable in a small home office envnironment. The frequent "calibrating" I find really annoying because it is so loud.
Summary: Does it's job. I'm not impressed with it's picture quality, but it's ok for presentations when pictures are not the focal point of the presentation. After repeated failure with family pictures, I've headed back to Costco for that job. The ink was always drying out on my inkjet anyhow, so it's just as well this way. At least I don't have to keep pouring ink into this one...
Summary: I guess I just don't understand printers. For some reason this printer takes about 3 minutes to print a single page basic document. It makes unpleasant noises for several minutes any time you turn it on to print something - even if it just printed something a minute or two ago. For me, the waiting and the noise are big negatives. Otherwise, the printer does a decent job printing in both color and black and white.
Summary: The only problem I have with this laser printer is that replacing the toner costs almost as much as the printer itself. Depending on the current price, it may be cheaper to just buy a new printer that comes with toner than to replace the toner cartridges.
Summary: The printer is rather slow, and is often busy doing things like "cleaning" or "calibrating", the result being I need something from it and I have to wait and wait. Also, the front-loading envelope pickup mechanism is unreliable, often picking basic A4 list instead of the envelope, the result being wasted time, ink and paper. It's a passable product, at best.
Summary: Be wary of the "low toner" warnings. I continued to print for six months after the warning came on! In total I printed approximately 1200 pages on the initial (small) black toner. I'm very stingy with color use (everything is printed in B&W unless there's a true need for color) and I'm still on the initial color cartridges a year (and 120 color prints) later. This printer does not feed envelopes well at all.
Summary: Yes, this printer prints like a laser jet printer should. Yes, it looks better than an ink jet. But unless you only plan only printing 8.5x11" jobs, it is a waste of money. If you print ANY custom sized envelope, the printer will clean itself after every one. It takes a minute and a half to print the second envelope, and you have to push OK to have it recognize the envelope size. The printer is not worth having for only printing regular sized jobs.
Summary: While this is a solid printer with full control over printing options when used with a PC, the lack of control when printing from an iPhone or iPad make it prohibitively expensive for AirPrint. Because you cannot preview or select the particular page you wish to print from Safari, or any other app that I've tried, you must print the whole document. To make things worse, you cannot select B&W when you do not need color.
Summary: I've been using it for a month now. The print quality, especially the colors 'snapping' off the page compared to my ink jet, is very nice. My dissatisfactions: 1) slow print speed, especially for b&w. 2) the printer suddenly finding a need to calibrate or clean itself, even when it hasn't been in use for awhile, which makes some quiet level of noise 3) the munchkin sized print tray, which runs out of paper very quickly even for my 1-person office 4) the cost of toner,...
