Nice Printer for MAC / PC 02/23/2014
Windows and Mac support
USB connectivity option
Energy saving printer but instant wake up and print.
ePrint remote print support
Must install the install package to setup printer on your target machine. It isn't a 'regular' IP printer.
The Mac driver / utility is HORRIBLE on Max OS X. Once installed it's fine but the install file is malformed and poorly rendered. i got installed by dumb luck.
i'm happy with the purchase of this printer. I am used to enterprise class printers and this definitely is a notch or two below those.
The trick to this printer is to install it on one PC with the USB cable connected when prompted. It will walk you through the configuration and have you un-plug the cable once wireless is configured. Once you get through all this it just works.
For the Windows clients you can browse to the printer's web interface to install the driver / utility.
The ePrint isn't as elegant as I expect Airprint is but it works. Basically you e-mail whatever file you want to print to a custom e-mail address and your printer will get the print job from the internet all on it's own. This allows you to print from any device that can send an e-mail attachment. It also means you can print a form to home from work etc. Pretty cool.
The other big plus is there is virtually ZERO warm-up time with this printer. It starts printing almost immediately from when you hit print, even if it is in a sleep state. No more waiting while the printer warms the fuser.
This is a great choice for a small Office / Home Office environment, especially if you need the wireless connectivity.
The only feature I disabled is direct print and this is just because I didn't feel the need to have an open AP running from the printer for people to directly connect and print to the printer. This might work out in a hotel or library or something but aside from that use case you'e better off to disable direct print.
