Performance

If you are looking for a good laser multifunction this one is serving me well. I have it networked into a wireless home network and it works great. Printing on both sides automatically is a nice paper saving feature. The standard sheet tray is a bit small for a machine this large at ~50 sheets. It would be nice if it held a standard ream. The additional tray is very expensive. I have printed/copied about 1200 sheets and it has jammed twice. It was fairly easy to clear. The fax and copier functions work great but the network scanning is a bit tricky. I am sure if you used the USB port it would be straight forward. All in all worth the money.

-Dave quote

This thing is amazing. Very high quality prints, scans, and faxes. Fax transmission is kinda slow, but more than acceptable. It is truely a step up from other models in the same price range, and can be confidently used in a small or medium sized office, even with high volume. The features of the software are amazing. Setup is the easiest i've seen for any network printer, and works reliably, 100% of the time. Be sure to install the advanced network manager so you can set up all of the settings without having to use the front panel interface. Just makes things a bit easier.
