What a Printer!


I have my printer hooked up as a home LAN print server. With only needing 6 watts during power save and 10 second power up, I just leave it on all the time. This way it maintains its IP address without having to set up a static address! Cool!

Quiet, fast, quick power up, extremely versatile. USB, network or wireless - put the printer anywhere you want! Printer is a work horse and copies come out laser crisp. I love this printer

Price was a little high, but with the $100 rebate, its worth it
