This is an excellent printer – very neat and compact size. The installation software included animated diagrams on how to install and set up the printer. Installation of the networking driver went very smoothly. There is a small delay in printing the first page as the printer warms up; thereafter it has a good print speed. Print quality is excellent, with crisp, clear detail in printed maps. I have also used it for printing gummed address labels, which many other laser printers will not accept. The first printer i received was dead on arrival but it was quickly replaced by xerox and i am now very pleased with the replacement.
Good printing but flawed software. Printing is very good quality though not fast. I had problems with the set up (kept wanting to print double sided) not sure how i changed it, certainly wasn’t simple. When i connected it to the router, installation of the drivers on one computer was fine but when i put the disc in the second computer it changed the settings on the first, totally naff. I’m now using it on usb until i feel strong enough to face trying to network it again. I don’t believe the people who write the software ever test it in real world situations.
Initial view is favourable – now updated. After being exasperated with inkjet printers that continually failed to do the 2 things asked of them, namely feed paper, and print on it, i decided to upgrade to a laser (or in this case what i understand to be a led printer which is somewhere in between a true laser and an inkjet). A useful tip to help you wade through the 1000s of choices in this saturated market. Many printers have the letters c or n or d or all 3 in their model numbers. This means colour, networkable, and duplex. Ideally i wanted all 3 attributes but found that the d came at a price and also meant a much bulkier machine at almost twice the size (but more on that later). . First impressions (i’ve only had it 3 days so can’t comment on long term reliability or economy of the cartridges although the cartridges do look small so i hope they don’t run out too quickly) :-1. Excellent delivery from printerland (next day). Paper trays seem flimsy and prefer to rest on a flat surface (mine overhangs a desk).

Having received this in very quick time, ordered sunday, arrived tuesday. Easily set up, quality of print, even photos on plain paper, far better than expected. Double sided print easy to do. Update feb 2013after over 6 months, still very pleased with this printer. I’ve seen other reviewers complain about the cost of the ink. For me it’s cheaper than the inkjet i owned. I would buy new ink, print a couple of pages, a few weeks later i’d go to print and have to print numerous test pages after cleaning the heads,. This didn’t always work, do would have to buy new cartridges. Hours of frustration, a page print from the inkjet probably worked out at £5 a pagenow i know that when i print a page it will print first time and good quality, saving time and money.
No complaints so far with this printer, we have used this in our design department so they can print visuals off for us and its very good quality.

Print quality looks good, but to be honest, i’ve hardly used it. It was out of action for a while as one of the dogs chewed the usb cable lol. Then it was out of action for longer, i suspected the dog had shorted the usb connection in the printer as the pc just didn’t pick it up. So decided to try a network cable, but i just couldn’t get it in the network port, so decided to pull the printer out for better access. That’s when it hit me, the usb cable was in the network port lol. My excuse was that it was in a tight space and i had to feel round the back for the port, and only realised it was in the wrong one when i couldn’t fit a network cable in to test it, lol. One thing i don’t like is that the paper tray sticks out a bit and collects dust, we have plenty of dust in our house. Can’t complain though at this price.
Great printer for the price. I’ve just paid £79 delivered for a brand new, colour laser network printer, what’s not to like?. I pulled it out of the box, plugged it into my router (it came with a euro and uk cable, but not network or usb cables, just like all other printers),my w7 laptop found it in network folders instantly and installed the drivers, box to printing first page, about 30 seconds. Installing it on my pc with xp on it wasn’t quite as quick (needed the cd or downloaded drivers), and first time i installed it something went wrong and i had to un- and re-install the software, but, unlike many printers i’ve owned, it uninstalled cleanly, and everything went right this time. Btw it comes with mac and linux drivers, so i’m going to give my old ubuntu-driven lappie a tickle later. Print quality is as expected, it wouldn’t threaten a £1000 mono laser, but it’s better than an inkjet for text and graphics(everything has an appealingly professional look to it), not quite up there with the best inkies for a photo, but still perfectly acceptable, pics coming out a touch dark by default, but a little fiddling fixes that. Ok it’s not all plain sailing, if i’m being picky i do have one or two criticisms: firstly the cover for the paper tray actually is the paper tray when opened, this is a pretty flimsy affair, and when open adds about 10-12cm to the overall dimensions; then there’s the design, it’s kind of white, with transparent blue bits, fine in your office, but you wouldn’t exactly want it pride of place in your living room (where mine is – damn). Oh, yeah, and there’s the small(?) matter of toner cartridge replacement cost: i think the best word to describe this is – ouch. – it’s about forty quid for an original cartridge, £30 for a compatible, and just to add insult to injury, the cartidges that come with the printer are only half full ‘starter’ carts. However, if you do a lot of printing, it is possible to refill these cartridges to ‘high yield’ for about £17 without too much trouble.
