Solid printer for the price

by A customer on 12/26/2010

Printer was a great price, especially with free shipping. The printer arrived in three days. The setup was confusing forcing me to first set-up the printer during its power-up cycle and again when I inserting the CD into the computer to load drivers. This set-up cycle appeared to cancel out the original wireless settings I inputed at printer start-up and would not finish configuration until I plugged the printer into my computer with the USB cable. I was able to finish the configuation via USB by skipping the wireless portion. I then manually re-entered the wireless settings for my wireless router directly on the printer via the wireless set-up menu. Once the printer re-gained an IP address, changing the settings from a wired to wireless connection on the computer was straight forward. Other than the initial configuration sequence, the printer has delivered excellent print jobs and has worked as advertised.
