Pantum P2502W Duplex 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi wireless/USB mono Laser Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs I liked it so much I bought a second one. 01/08/2015

This review is from: Pantum P2502W Duplex 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi wireless/USB mono Laser Printer

Pros: As mentioned in my last review, this is a great printer for text and other documents.

Cons: It does not support RPM based linux distros out of the box but i found a work around (See the other thoughts for steps)

Other Thoughts: As mentioned this has support for ubuntu and other Debian base distros but to make it work for an RPM.

WARNING: If you do not know what your doing do not try the following or you may potientialy render your system unsuable. Only do the following if you are comfortable making changes as root to your print folders. If you do not stray from these steps you should not mess anything up but you have been warned.

First need to extract the debian archives and then as Root copy the cups fileter to your /usr/lib/cups/filter/ folder (note the folder structure is in place in the archive just follow that. Then transfer the printer definition files located /usr/share/cups/model/Pantum from the archive to a folder named Pantum in the /usr/share/cups/model/ folder

Lastly make the following permissions changes
chmod 755 /usr/share/cups/model/Pantum
chmod 755 /usr/share/cups/model/Pantum/*
chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups/filter/pt2500Filter
chown root /usr/share/cups/model/Pantum
chown root /usr/share/cups/model/Pantum/*
chown root /usr/lib/cups/filter/pt2500Filter
chgrp root /usr/share/cups/model/Pantum
chgrp root /usr/share/cups/model/Pantum/*
chgrp root /usr/lib/cups/filter/pt2500Filter

also makesure the filter is executable. then just ad a printer as you would normaly and it will work.

Pros: I recieved this as a gift and it prints very well when doing text and other documents.

Cons: Its not ment for photos and as some other reviewers have said it does do images rather poorly, however i have found that you can print shipping labels and things of that nature reasonably well.

Other Thoughts: I read a review on here by Anthony K. mentioning it did not have a color toner cartridge, I would just like to point out for anyone basising their decision off this that this is a Monochrome printer and by definition does not support color printing, if you managed to find a color toner cartridge it would likely print horribly in color as this is ment to be a black and white printer.

Pros: Works well with most games and can display the max graphics for just about any game I try to play

Cons: Not so much a con as it is a inconvience, it does not interface with the Asus AI suite of software I guess you need an ROG branded one for that but not ASUS fault.

Other Thoughts: Due to this card being a year or so old you will find some of the newer games running at max settings could potientialy be sluggish if you have this installed in an PCI Express 2.1 slot like myself instead of a 3.0 slot
