Bad for office

Strengths: Easy to install. USB and Parallel port available. Come with usb cable. Fast print.

Weakness: Bad response for big/moderate amount of impressions. Problems with drums, toners and taking paper.

We buy 20 and in one month most of the printers fails.
Now we are buying new ones to replace all the Brother HL-2040 printers. Very bad experience.
Maybe for home users the printer works fine.

Fast but only good for simple jobs

Strengths: Cheap. Efficient. Regular printing is a snap.

Weakness: Feed tray / manual feed has a weird design and feels cheap. Must manually feed envelopes and cardstock one at a time. Double sided / cardstock printing will often produce a ghost (double) image.

For the money, this machine gets the job done and does a fine job printing for most print jobs. However, the design is really strange when it comes to the way it feeds paper. You have to have paper in there permanently. The tray feels cheap, doesn't always grab the paper right, and it swirls the paper around like crazy through the machine before coming out. The paper comes out too curved and hot...

Worth every penny!

Strengths: Cheap & easy to use, good print quality, small.

Easy to set up. Printed the first page within 5 minutes of opening the box. Fast and quiet compaired to the last laser I owned. I would buy this printer again for home use.

Fantastic Printer For A Little Money

Strengths: Great Value and great design and great quality output. The manual paper feeder makes it easy to print envelopes and business cards in limited quantities for home users and very small offices.

Weakness: Does curl paper a little, and though the manual paper feeder works well, it can print a little askew on envelopes (but not too terribly bad)

I bought this unit as most users rated it well on various Net sites, and I really liked the design--it looks like a miniaturized laser printer, and not a hybrid laser/inkjet with the feed paper jetting out (and getting exposed to dirt and dust). The integrated paper drawer was a big plus for me! Besides looking great, this printer is sooo SMALL... I've found the text output fabulous--as good as...

Best quality/price value

Strengths: Fast and excellent print quality

Weakness: NOISY

If you don't have a lot of money to spend on a printer, get this one. It does an excellent printing job (similar to the HP) but the noise is disturbing.
