Perfect for our use, inexpensive and works very well
Nov 20, 2010
This printer is perfect for us. We don't print pictures or in color at all. We print black in white and probably only 25 pages a week at the max. We have had several inkjet printers before and the ink will clog up if you don't use it often. With a laser printer we have eliminated this problem. These toner cartridges will last for thousands of pages instead of a couple hundred pages which are what the typical inkjet cartridge will last.
This printer can print up to 23 pages per minute which is plenty fast enough for us. The paper tray only holds half a ream of paper but that is because this laser printer is so compact compared to most.
This printer installed and was working within minutes and has worked flawlessly so far. It prints very crisp and clear even on the economy setting in order to conserve toner. Some laser printers will take a while to warm up but it doesn't take long at all with this printer.
I like that this printer is energy star certified because energy savings is very important to me. There is also a power switch on the side so it can be turned off while not in use.
This is a very good printer for the cost. You can certainly purchase printers with many more options but I doubt you will find a better deal for the price than this printer. I would caution you to make sure you have room for the printer on your desk before purchasing. Some smaller desks might not have enough room on it.
