does the job

Kyle G., Newegg
29 October 2014
  • Pros: Cheap, effective, managed to actually get ahold of customer service through email and got them to send me a Linux driver that I couldn't find on the website.
  • Cons: No linux driver came on the CD, had to download it by requesting from customer service

Good enough-watch out on OSX

ROBERT M., Newegg
21 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this because it was cheap any my wife is in school so she prints a lot of papers.I keep hoping they will update the OSX driver and that will fix the issue. I haven't tried printing from my Windows partition but i may resort to that. I would be more upset if I paid more for it.
  • Pros: I have had this for a couple of months and the print quality is fine for our home use. It prints one page quickly.
  • Cons: I am using it on OSX Yosemite both the beta and final release. I have not been able to print more than one page at a time. Printing one page will give an error, but it prints.

Printer good; cartridges terrible

Study C., Newegg
19 October 2014
  • Pros: The printer does the job fine and works great for what it is, especially given the price point,. The cartridges that they sell are terrible. They will abruptly go from 72% to 0% after a few hundred pages of printing. Hit or miss with the cartridges. .
  • Cons: Toner cartridges suck. You'll average a few hundred pages at most, never close to a thousand. Not worth the printer if the toner cartridges are this bad.

Good for the money

mark z., Newegg
18 October 2014
  • Summary: We used this printer to replace our LAN ink jet attached to the USB port on a wireless router. We found you cannot install the drivers on the PC without the printer connected and you cannot connect to the printer without the drivers. Simple solution: connect the printer to the PC first and then install the drivers.
  • Pros: price quality of printer print quality - looks good on text, fine lines in a grid as in a spread sheet or graph a bit dim for my taste, but I have not tried to adjust that
  • Cons: none for our application

  • Pros: Came free with my samsung monitor so can't really complain. Needed a new printer, this thing is quick. Easy too setup.
  • Cons: The only downside i noticed with this is the intstructions were not even in english but not worth taking a egg off.

Clean Cheap Fast Quiet Prints

BRIAN W., Newegg
29 August 2014
  • Summary: Im buying a second one before the price jumps or they're gone; for the price and free shipping it can't be beat unless you found one locally with a special coupon deal at a back-to-school or holiday advertised period with a trade in on your older printer.
  • Pros: $32 Shipped! Nothing more can be a bigger Pro. When considering the cost of a replacement laser cartridge, low yield or high yield, the cost for printing are unbeatable. It prints equal to both my Brother and Canon lasers. i found the 600 dpi setting printed cleaner and darker with greater detail than the 1200 setting. It prints flawlessly. It sounds little quieter than my Brother but prints just as fast and wakes up at the same rate of any laser i've owned previously...
  • Cons: No cons for me.

Printer + cartridge is half price of the ink set I use for other printer

Vicky K., Newegg
23 August 2014
  • Pros: It print, that's all I need. I only print on the tax season for the most, but every time when I need to print, the inkjet printer always out of ink (just 1 ink out, can't make print), when I saw the price on this printer just bought it for a backup. It's not the greatest print out but is decent if only printing text, I set it on 600dpi 0 density with toner save mode to print just text, and have to set it to the highest density to print page with color for it to show. ...
  • Cons: none to me
