I've had this printer now for several months and I like it very much. It replaced my older HP970cse Professional printer which was my workhorse for many years. The quality of print is excellent and so is the speed. This printer is fast. If however, you use the duplex printing option, be aware that it waits for a good 10-12 seconds before it pulls the page back in to print side 2. Not a big deal for me. The price was deal sealer. This printer lists on many sites for 149.00, but I got in on buy.com for about 83.00.
All the instructions in the booklet are about installing it on a network, and there's nothing on how to use the thing. A lot of my printing is simple letters and envelopes, and I am finding the unit to be deficient for printing envelopes. The accessory tray would be fairly expensive, and it looks like the printer will insist on cutting off my return address anyway. I'll keep working with it, and we'll see. On the plus side, duplexing is a great feature and consumables seem relatively affordable. It's a great printer for somebody. However, I suspect this one will wind up donated to charity and I'll go back to my simple inkjet.
