"Terrific light-use home printer, wireless works perfect"
3 January 2012
Pros: Wireless allows us to place it in the middle of our house and forget about it (we honestly use it maybe 5-6 times a month total). Toner lasts forever, quality always perfect. We use draft quality to save toner, high for pictures, which all look great
Cons: It's a bit bulky. There are complaints about time to warm up, but since we either print from downstairs or upstairs, by the time we walk to the printer, it's not an issue. It's also a bit noisy, but again, low use = no problem.
Summary: We got this unit as a Christmas present for ourselves. Installed the software and away it went working as advertised. One must make sure you have a unique address for each computer by changing the last number to one different than the others. The pictures are clear, much better than ink jet. I use a coated paper for laser printers, not the ink jet photo paper as it will not work. The unit works well on lighter multi color pictures but not well on dark photos.
Summary: I got my refurbished printer about a week ago. Set it up with a wired connection and have printed around 200 pages so far with no issues. I assume that the quality for photo printing is marginal based on previous reviews, but for basic office use it's been great so far! This replaced a color inkjet that I used for similar documents. As expected, text is much sharper with the laser.
"Ignore the OLD review from CNET - great printer!"

Pros: Very easy setup for network printing: wireless or ethernet. Quiet. Great print quality. Small footprint. Works with Windows 7. Incredible value compared to other options IMHO!
Cons: Paper tray sticks out of footprint 3 inches, so while small, the printer footprint is not as advertised. Minimal documentation. Auto duplex option would be nice. Less expensive print cartridges would be nice: costs similar to other laser copiers.
Summary: I have complete confidence in this product brand and have the same printer still working but it did not have WiFi. Had the chance do upgrade to a wireless environment and sought to get my same printer with this additional capability.
