Summary: I bought this printer so that i can print about 50 pages at a time. I've had it for almost 2 years now. About 3 months ago this printer stopped printing the "blue" color accurately. I've had consultant technicians come out to look at my machine. We've tried a new sensor chip and new toner cartridges. It has cost me as much as the machine cost to purchase new. Unfortunately, I have had some bad luck with this Xerox printer product. The issue is still not fixed.
Summary: I have had this for a year. Paper: It barely gets jams, if it does they come out fine. vs an hp inkjet i had, one jam messed it up. Toner: none last as long as they say, because they calculate at 5% usage. The xerox toner is crazy expensive. I tried an offbrand from ebay and hand problems with it. I know buy the LD from amazon and haven't ever had a problem. If you buy a 4 set it's only $10.50 a piece.
Summary: EDIT: 4/15/2011 - Xerox sent a technician out from Seattle (an all-day trip) to replace the magenta toner sensor free of charge. I've changed my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a great little printer, BUT the "genuine" toner is very expensive, and the cheaper "compatible" toner doesn't always work.
Summary: This printer is great, compact, and prints great quality. But please be advised that it does NOT come with cords to hook it to your computer or network. You must supply those yourself. It only comes with a power cord and that's it. When I excitedly tore open the box to play with it, I had to use a dinky one foot cord I had laying around the house with my laptop on the floor to test it out. You need to buy a long A/B usb cord separate for this printer.
Summary: I love this printer, but the toner is killing me. This "5%" idea is stupid. No one uses just 5% per sheet. They should just say that you are only going to get 250 pages of color output and not try to pretend that you will get 1000 copies. The sad thing is that they are making a killing off the toner. The cost of a toner cartridge should be about $4.95-$5.95 per color and not these ridiculous numbers of $68.99 per color. I'm using the off brand, but here is the thing.
Summary: With the first print, it was easy to see that the colors were not lined up. Took about an hour to get them close enough. They are still "off" but acceptable. The quality is not great, but you can see the resolution in the description. Graphics get washed out. It takes some time to get the color in the prints to look good. Because I cannot get all the colors to line up exactly, the text does look a little fuzzy.
