This is an ideal printer for an office situation, however, due to it's bulk, I wouldn't recommend this for a home printer.
Pretty good, it prints well both in black and white and in colour. The printer prints in A4 which is the size of paper most people prefere to use. It is also capable of printing envelopes of sizes International B5 (176 x 250 mm), International C5 (162 x 229 mm) and International DL (110 x 220 mm) .
Pretty fast, capable of 25 black and white pages per minute and 20 colour pages per minute. This speed was essential in my workplace, where arguments over printing rights are very prone to occour. This printer has certainly made the office a quieter place to be. It is also capable of holding 400 sheets so reloads are not required too often.
Where I work, this printer has definatly been put through its paces, printing almost non-stop and roughed about by in a rush office workers, each of whom believes their report is more important than everybody elses, and it hasn't broken down yet or even shown any sign of complaint.
Ease of use
This printer wasn't too dificult to install (I didn't have to sink as low as reading the instructions). And once installed it doesn't require any consious thought at all. And I haven't had any annoying calls from office staff who cant tell their keyboard from their mouse (I'm the tech guy BTW) about this printer.
It fits in well with an office environment but is far to bulky to be a home PC, with a height of 47.7cm, a depth of 57.7 cm and a width of 40.8 cm as well as weighing in at 28 kg.
Value for money
There is a huge price range on this printer so make sure you shop around. If you can get it for some of the lower prices it's well worth buying.
