Seemed like a good printer except it didn't match

on 6/1/2012

This printer seemed fine--in fact, color laser printing for that price? The problem, and the reason I gave it such low reviews, is that the page says that it is wireless, and it certainly is not! I had to send it back; got my money back, but I was really disappointed. NOT WIRELESS

Lots of features and decent quality for the money

on 7/4/2012

This is a multifunction printer but be aware it only scans, copies, and prints. This model has no fax or wireless capability. That was a good trade-off for me. The printer is nicely built and has easy to access cartridges. The prices for the cartridges seems pretty good for the rated output so this seems like a good value for the occasional color print user. Unlike an inkjet printer the color laser doesn't mind going a long time without use. Black and white text printing is outstanding. Color printing is good and is of consumer grade. To save energy, and this printer is 850 watts when warmed up, there are built-in energy saving features like auto stand-by after 15 minutes. I leave it off and turn it on when needed. There is a about a 45 second warm up period. B/W printing is fast after the first print, color is slower but meets my needs.
