bad choice for linux users
13 January 2013
Summary: Universal print driver works fine on Win7, but the ppd file for linux is incompatible with all versions of cups greater than 1.5.3. so you cannot run any of the latest distros such as cinnamon, mate or kde 14 or greater. Works well with linuxmint kde 13 64bit (maya) running cups 1.5.2 or 1.5.3. You can get it to work with newer cups, but only if you choose a generic postscript ppd which severely limits your options. Did not buy from amazon.
Summary: I have had Magicolor laser printers before and they have been real work horses and dead reliable and I purchased this one to replace an ageing laser Magicolor. I have had this a year and it's been totally unreliable, in fact unuseable. It doesn't seem to be able to communicate with the pc and churns out reams (literally!) of gobbleygook even when you trying to print off a one-page Word document.
