Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast & Easy Very easy to set up. Simple to use and very fast to scan. Easily takes 20 sheets at a time. Had this now for a few weeks have yet to find anything I dislike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little printer I bought this printer as I spend quite a bit of time travelling around and needed something I could fit in the car and also take to hotels - this does the job perfectly. It is quiet and very efficient and the print quality is very good. My only criticism, is that if I were to believe what I was being told by the management software I would have changed the laser cartridge sometime ago and been miffed with the number of prints per cartridge, but I ignored it and have carried on printing with no loss of quality for quite some time.
