Advantages: This printer is cheap, small, fast, quiet, and reliable
Disadvantages: No color printing, no special features, toner can be expensive and hard to find.
This is a great printer for anyone that wants no-frills, straightforward, black-and-white printing. I've been using it in college for about six months now. It is small for a printer, and will fit comfortably on a medium-sized desk. It is also lightweight and easy to pack up, which is useful if you are going to be moving around. It comes with a AC Cable but not a USB cable which you should make sure to purchase at the same time to avoid disappointment. The software is simple to set up and I haven't had any issues running it. The only other useful feature this printer has besides the actual printing is a one-push button option to print the screen you're currently looking at - I haven't found any real use for this.
As for the printing itself - this is the good stuff. Though the printer takes a little while to warm up, once it does printing is very fast. It is also extremely quiet, definitely the quietest printer I've used. The quality of the printing is great - no pixilation or grayness. I've also rarely had a huge jamming problem. I have had the paper stick a couple of times, and this was usually when I filled up the paper tray a little too high or ran a page through again. However, compared to the sheer volume of material I print, these jams were rare, and easily fixable : the stuck paper was easy to get out, and the printer would start again promptly.
Here's the bad news: toner is hard to find, and it's going to cost you. Look for deals online. Luckily, however, I have not had to replace the toner yet. The printer comes with one cartridge.
Summary: This is a great printer as long as you just want to print quickly in black-and-white.
