Advantages: Toner cartridges seem to last forever
Disadvantages: Paper can get jammed if it is not of a good enough quality
I bought this printer to replace the endless supply of cheap colour Lexmark that I would go through as it was cheaper to buy a new printer than new ink, and I have been pleasantly surprised with how good it has been! It gets used about 2 or 3 times a week and then more when assignments are due in and lots of printing is needed. I've had it for over 2 years now and put in its second ever cartridge about 3 months ago - so they do last for a fair amount of time.
The printer is a very small size and fits very nicely on my desk above my computer. It is very easy to set up and you don't need to use the included CD drivers for both Windows 7 and OSX. Im pretty sure as well that it should be plug and play for Vista and XP SP2+ as well. The printer doesn't come with a USB cable, but this is easily got from somewhere online like amazon (don't buy them on the high street - you'll end up paying a minimum of 5x more)
It is relatively quiet and is very quick for printing, the only trouble that I would say exists with it is that it has a tendency of getting blocked with the paper, although this may only be down to using recycled paper and it not being as firm as others.
As with any laser printer, when you think the toner is running out, take out the cartridge and give it a light shake from side to side - this will move about all of the toner and you should be able to get another 50+ sheets of printing done until you can order another one (although the cartridges are relatively cheap and widely available on both amazon and ebuyer).
Overall, I would say that this is a really good buy for a laser printer, its very cheap for what you are getting and setup for it is extremely easy - defiantly worth buying if you are looking for a replacement to your current system
Summary: A nice printer that has consistently proved itself as good value for money
