4 out of 5 eggsAwesome printer

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Excellent quality of print, easy setup and it's wireless. Seems to warm up very fast and it doesn't take long to "wake up" when sending documents to the printer. I have an old Samsung printer that makes more noise and takes longer to warm up. :)

Cons: Tends to curl paper when it comes out of the printer. Guess I'll have to iron some of them out if I have important papers. :) Would have given it 5 eggs if this was not an issue.

Other Thoughts: I can't complain about this printer for the price range it is excellent. I was expecting something that may be tricky but was fooled by the quality and simplicity of the whole process of the set up. Very well built, don't see how anyone could go wrong with this. Been a very pleasant experience, except for when the printer wouldn't read the toner cartridge. That was easily fixed by wiping the contacts on the cartridge and then in the printer. Apparently the toner had gotten on the cartridge and in the printer when I pulled the tab. Lesson learned. :)

5 out of 5 eggsvery effective and cost effective.

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: The wifi settings were a little irritating, BUT a few things you should know if you are trying to set this up on a 5ghz N Network.
I will read A, B, G, N networks
only works on 2.4ghz frequency
Directly printing to the printer is the best option for mobile devices.

The user who gave the detailed Wireless Setup instructions was VERY helpfully. Thank you.

Find the IP Address of your printer by going to 192.168.1.1 and logging into your router admin settings.
then view your active devices, and look for an IP like 192.168.1.125

Ok, so google search "direct IP print on Chrome" and look for instructions on adding your IP Printer to your Chrome Browser https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/1069693?hl=en-GB
the catch is, only users signed into that gmail user can print from anywhere! Even if you are away from your home it will print to this printer.

While using the iPad, use "air print" and SEARCH printer while you are within your home network range.

The printer speed is great, and the size is perfect. It is small and kind of perfect.

I just wanted to offer some insights of how i am using the printer.

Cons: the wireless setup was challenging, but only because i was trying to search for a 5GHz network.
If you are running a 5Ghz network, run a dual secondary network for just the printer.

Other Thoughts: The price per page is around 2.1 cents with the $30 toner and total cost of printer with included 700 page toner

5 out of 5 eggsGreat customer service

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: First pro is the pricing, I have a Brother laser printer and the toner cartridge cost more than this printer.
Second pro is the tech support. I had problem installing the wireless part, I tried to do it myself for about an hour and finally decided to call the customer service line. Wonder of wonders they have a separate number for each major country. I called the US number and got an American English speaking person after only a minute wait. He was in the process of helping me when I bumped the end button on the phone. I called back and got on with another gentleman who was just as helpful as the first man. The tech ask if I like to have him control the installation via remote access. I did and he controlled the installation and it went off without a problem. I had not understood a step in the instructions, which he admitted weren't very clear. Total time on the phone was maybe 15 minutes. Note to self: call tech sooner.
Third pro is I can print from my iPhone without having an app, it shows up when you select print and choose it from printer list.

Cons: Installation instructions unclear on the wireless installation steps.

Other Thoughts: I will update after further use if I change my mind.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mac Wireless Printer for the Money!

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: I read other reviewers who complained about setting this up for Mac OS X. I simply downloaded the drivers from the Pantum.com website, connected the provided USB cable to my Mac, installed and configured the software for wireless (I use an Apple Airport Extreme router)... It found the wireless and self-configured. After removing the USB cable, I am able to print directly to the printer by selecting it from the Print menu. Very easy, and the print quality is great.

I didn't see any iOS apps available for my iPhone, so I opened an email on my iPhone, selected Print from the bottom menu. The iPhone recognized the wireless printer, and printed my email out in seconds! I'm excited that I can now print directly from our iPhones and iPads in the house!

Even though the printer doesn't have a PostScript interpreter built in, it printed Adobe Illustrator, Acrobat PDFs, InDesign with Adobe Fonts, and Photoshop files completely and very quickly from the Mac. Not sure how if this is the same for Windows or not.

Overall, I think this is a great value from Newegg, and the toner cartridges are now in stock again and priced right. Great job Newegg and Pantum!

Cons: None that I've found yet!

Other Thoughts: I'll definitely recommend this printer to families that need a simple black and white printer available to all home users (PCs, laptops and mobiles devices). Great for printing out recipes, kids homework, emails... all wirelessly.

4 out of 5 eggswifi hiccup

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Cheap from black Friday purchase. It still is.
print quality is good as my HP laser.
Print speed is acceptable except when its coming out of sleep. Then it takes 15 second delay or so.
Small footprint.
WiFi makes it for less cable mess and able to set printer away from my computer.

For the price I ended up buying two.

Cons: I took off a star because of WiFi setup was not clear.
Auto-detect of available wifi does not work the way I expected. Documentation was not helpful.

4 contacts to the toner cartridge wasn't making a good contact so it gave me an error. Took a rough rag and cleaned the contacts off on the toner cartridge and the four pins on the printer. Error went away.

Other Thoughts: For WIFI setup.

connect USB to the printer and your computer.

start the autoinstall program on the supplied disk. (your printer should have been powered up when you connected the USB)

make sure you have selected the correct printer P2502W.

There should be three radio buttons: one for USB, one for network, and last one for WIFI.

select the WIFI and continue.

next window is where the confusion occurs.

It asks for SSID and down below you can tell it to auto search. IT DOESN'T WORK. You have to manually set your SSID. For those who don't know what that is, its your network name e.g. my_home_network.

hit continue.

It will want to know whether you ave security setup (if you don't shame shame on you!!) Select WEP or WPA then another text entry box appears for the passcode.

type in the pass code and continue.

DO NOT HIT EXIT BUTTON.

Continue and allow the software to be loaded, when it has finished, the program will close itself out.

It will also set your default printer to P2502W and if this is not what you want, you need to fix it by going into the control panel of your windows select printer you want as your default and click on a button to set it as a default.

I should have written it down as I went through but didn't so its from memory. Others have written about it but it was buried in their text.

2 out of 5 eggscann't connect wifi

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: printer ok connect with a cable

Cons: Cann't connect to the printer on wifi from my mac (Yosemite). Maybe is the Yosemite's fault, but I can't get no support from the website.

3 out of 5 eggsOnly ok

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: - cheap

Cons: - user manual isn't clear on how to set up wifi (hint: you have to have your printer plugged into USB of your computer, run the CD driver install but select WiFi option, enter your SSID, etc.)
- faint part in printed pages, user manual says to replace toner -- which I really don't like because this is brand new with stock toner, and extra toner cartridges are out of stock / backordered
- manual doesn't explain how to set up on a Mac, nor does the CD appear to have Mac software on it (I have both Windows and Mac computers that need to print to it)

Other Thoughts: At the Black Friday price of $30, it's a no-brainer. I wouldn't pay more than that, however....
