Good: Good quality prints, cheap printer
Bad: Toner cost
Comment: I've rated this printer as a general use printer. It is not a photo printer, if you try to print photos you will be disappointed. For printing documents that look crisp and professional this printer is great. For general day to day usage it's also great. It's not particularly fast, it takes a little while to 'spin up'. The noise is acceptable. The best thing about having a colour laser printer is that it doesn't dry out or need the printer heads cleaning. I don't use the printer very much and so I've owned it for over a year without having to change any of the toner cartridges. The software drivers do contain a toner display so you can see how much is left in each cartridge. The cartridges do seem very expensive but they do last a very long time for light usage and so save tonnes of money against sparsely used Inkjet cartridges. For daily business usage you can probably find a printer with more prints to the buck, but the actual printer will be a lot more expensive. The unit itself is larger than Inkject printers but I think it's smaller than most laser printers I have seen. The paper tray is fine, relatively easy to get the paper straight and it takes quite a decent amount of paper at once, though not as much as larger office printers. Regarding reliability I haven't had any problems so far, it seems good quality.
I'd say this unit is perfect for home office / small business use.
Good: price I paid £68 on amazon and £40 for high capacity toners which really work
Bad: for this price nothing !
Comment: really good as general day to day printer, I use epson 700 for photographs if I require them. Very pleased.
