very effective and cost effective.

Joseph S., Newegg
12 December 2014
  • Summary: The price per page is around 2.1 cents with the $30 toner and total cost of printer with included 700 page toner
  • Pros: The wifi settings were a little irritating, BUT a few things you should know if you are trying to set this up on a 5ghz N Network. I will read A, B, G, N networks only works on 2.4ghz frequency Directly printing to the printer is the best option for mobile devices. The user who gave the detailed ...
  • Cons: the wireless setup was challenging, but only because i was trying to search for a 5GHz network. If you are running a 5Ghz network, run a dual secondary network for just the printer.

Great customer service

Lynn F., Newegg
11 December 2014
  • Summary: I will update after further use if I change my mind.
  • Pros: First pro is the pricing, I have a Brother laser printer and the toner cartridge cost more than this printer. Second pro is the tech support. I had problem installing the wireless part, I tried to do it myself for about an hour and finally decided to call the customer service line. Wonder of wond...
  • Cons: Installation instructions unclear on the wireless installation steps.

Great Mac Wireless Printer for the Money!

Gregory L., Newegg
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I'll definitely recommend this printer to families that need a simple black and white printer available to all home users (PCs, laptops and mobiles devices). Great for printing out recipes, kids homework, emails... all wirelessly.
  • Pros: I read other reviewers who complained about setting this up for Mac OS X. I simply downloaded the drivers from the Pantum.com website, connected the provided USB cable to my Mac, installed and configured the software for wireless (I use an Apple Airport Extreme router)... It found the wireless an...
  • Cons: None that I've found yet!

wifi hiccup

shawn u., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Summary: For WIFI setup. connect USB to the printer and your computer. start the autoinstall program on the supplied disk. (your printer should have been powered up when you connected the USB) make sure you have selected the correct printer P2502W.
  • Pros: Cheap from black Friday purchase. It still is. print quality is good as my HP laser. Print speed is acceptable except when its coming out of sleep. Then it takes 15 second delay or so. Small footprint. WiFi makes it for less cable mess and able to set printer away from my computer. For the price ...
  • Cons: I took off a star because of WiFi setup was not clear. Auto-detect of available wifi does not work the way I expected. Documentation was not helpful. 4 contacts to the toner cartridge wasn't making a good contact so it gave me an error. Took a rough rag and cleaned the contacts off on the toner c...

  • Pros: printer ok connect with a cable
  • Cons: Cann't connect to the printer on wifi from my mac (Yosemite). Maybe is the Yosemite's fault, but I can't get no support from the website.

Only ok

Brett L., Newegg
5 December 2014
  • Summary: At the Black Friday price of $30, it's a no-brainer. I wouldn't pay more than that, however....
  • Pros: - cheap
  • Cons: - user manual isn't clear on how to set up wifi (hint: you have to have your printer plugged into USB of your computer, run the CD driver install but select WiFi option, enter your SSID, etc.) - faint part in printed pages, user manual says to replace toner -- which I really don't like because th...

Cartridge expired...

Nathaniel H., Newegg
4 December 2014
  • Summary: I am tempted to see if the error is hackable.
  • Pros: Small, Compact. Only takes a minute or two to setup if you can connect to PC. Cheap.
  • Cons: Took about three pages in my first 30 minutes before it came up with cartridge expired error and will not print anymore. Manual says should print about 1600 pages. I guess I really hit the bottom of the bell curve on that average... Shipping it back for refund or replacement is pretty close to th...
