Pantum P2050

 

The Pantum P2050 is a respectable budget monochrome laser from a company trying to carve a space in the laser printer market.

Low price. Compact. Easy to set up and use. Solid text quality.

Subpar graphics quality. Slightly subpar photos. Sparse feature set.

We never know quite what to expect when testing a new brand of printer. Although the Pantum P2050 may not have hit it out of the park, it's a respectable effort for a company, previously unknown in America, trying to carve a space in the laser printer...

Pantum P2050 review

Completely died in 7 months

 

I would not recommend this printer. It is cheaply made and unreliable, but I guess you get what you pay for.

It printed and worked for a few months.

After 7 months of light use, the USB communication completely failed. I did try other computers and cables but the problem appears to be the printers USB communication.

does the job

 

Cheap, effective, managed to actually get ahold of customer service through email and got them to send me a Linux driver that I couldn't find on the website

No linux driver came on the CD, had to download it by requesting from customer service

Good enough-watch out on OSX

 

I bought this because it was cheap any my wife is in school so she prints a lot of papers.I keep hoping they will update the OSX driver and that will fix the issue. I haven't tried printing from my Windows partition but i may resort to that. I would be...

I have had this for a couple of months and the print quality is fine for our home use. It prints one page quickly

I am using it on OSX Yosemite both the beta and final release. I have not been able to print more than one page at a time. Printing one page will give an error, but it prints
