Pros: It just works.
A full duplex color laser printer for the price of a non-duplex.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I've had this for 4 months so far, in a home office environment with very light usage, only a few pages per week. I've had no problems or complaints with it so far.
I chose it mainly because it offered duplex printing for about the same price as other brand's non-duplex (or manual duplex) color lasers. It's a nice convenience and saves paper.
Before buying, I searched online and found that generic replacement toner cartridges seemed to be available for a reasonable price, although I'm sure the total life cycle costs per page are not the absolute minimum for a color laser.
It's solidly built and heavy to lift. You may need two people to get it out of the box and set up without any risk of back strain.
Pros: Size; Resolution; Price; 3-year warranty
Cons: Brightness control doesn't really work - details below.
Other Thoughts: (writing this 2 days after it arrived.)
Out-of-the-box, the display was way too bright. The OSD brightness control has a range from 0 = too bright to 100 = much, much too bright. Even when set at zero, the colors all washed out and really hard to read fine text on a white background. Eventually got the monitor adjusted so I can use it without eyestrain, by tweaking the color balance controls to very low settings (10/100)
Bought this to replace a "bargain" 24" monitor that only lasted 23 months. The extra screen space is a dramatic improvement.
IMHO, 1080 is ok for a TV, but inadequate for computer monitor. The 1600-resolution is much better
Pros: low price
Cons: Bought a pair of these for a RAID array. One failed after only a couple of weeks of use.
It passes the "short" tests, but fails the long/extended tests (using either WD's Data Lifequard diagnostic or Seagate's SeaTools diagnostics). I didn't run the extended tests until my RAID controller failed the drive, so it might have been bad right out-of-the-box without my realizing it.
