Summary: ....and now its useless brick. Paper loader stopped feeding paper. No jams, no broken parts, it's just stopped working suddenly. Now it's too late to exchange or return this garbage. I DON'T recommend this printer.
I have now recieved not ONE but TWO of these Printers Damaged

Summary: What a mess! I just set up my Amazon Prime account, that didn't work. They cancelled this order 3 or 4 times and then I ended up with 2 printers (customer service could not help me-would not??) Two day shipping--what a joke! That was another laugh,4 days. When the printers finally arrived I opened the first one and it just made horrible noised and flashed an error message, it could not go through set up with the computer. So I opened the second box.
Summary: I purchased this printer 2 weeks ago for printing some color flyers to hand out at an event. I have been in the market for a home laser printer for my art and event distributions to avoid costly printing expenses elsewhere. I thought it would be perfect for my small scale needs. The packaging was good. Nothing was damaged when the printer arrived.
Excerpt: How to install the inl cartridges is very complicated. Then the print outs are very dull lacking contrast. Tried to return it but merchant does not allow returns. It is now sitting unused as I bought another one.
Summary: It worked well for a short time. Now it is stuck in error mode and will not work. All LED lights across all cartridge, ready, and error will not clear. It's disappointing because trouble shooting says the device is working properly.
If it works, it's very good. If it doesn't, you are in for a load of trouble.

Summary: The printer is fantastic: it is quite fast and print quality is mindblowing, at a very low cost! Remanufactured toners are fairly cheap, if you look for deals, although they run out kind of fast--but that is to be expected, I think, for a color laser--you shouldn't be using this for everyday bw prints if you could help it. Having been using this for a couple of months, though, I found a couple of very annoying quirks. First, it is quite noisy.
Excerpt: This printer continues to disappoint. I've had it for six months and after two months the roller had a melted spot that left marks on all prints. It has since been replaced but now the fuser doesn't fuse the toner to the page. We'll see how this repair goes...
Excerpt: Out of the box it worked, but the print quality is less than desirable, especially for any prints with graphics or pictures. Within 1 week the page prints had streaks; blue & yellow. Spent $200 on new print cartridges and the problem almost went away, but not entirely. Within 2 months, the fuser roller began depositing black streaks down the middle of the page. [...
Summary: I love a great deal & I thought I had gotten one on this <$150 color laser. I purchased this to print brochures & other color graphic advertising material. I have not overtaxed the printer as I may only print 50-100 items every so often. First off the printer seemed OK although it had a few ghost images or smudges that it would sometimes print on the next sheet. then after about the first 100 print jobs all the toner ran out.
