Pros: Prints duplex nice and fast. Quiet. Doesn't appear to be any warm-up time for the first print or copy. Copying is fast and the feeder works as expected. Scanning is as fast as copying and the files just show up on your computer. Size-wise, for an all-in-one, it doesn't take up a lot of room on the desk/table.
Update almost a year after purchase: On our third or fourth generic cartridge, still works great. My wife's a teacher and she uses it very often to make two-sided, multi-page handouts. Prints duplex (both sides), copies and scans very fast. Now that I'm thinking about it, we've never had a paper jam, even when she used really flimsy paper for a while.
Cons: I went for a custom setup which ended up a little convoluted. Once it had an IP address the computer setup went smoothly. Update: what I meant to say here is that I should have just done the express setup. I ended up setting a static IP address via the control panel on the printer.
Overall Review: I rarely write reviews, but am impressed by this printer. BTW, our network is wifi. We're Windows users. I recommended this to a non-techie Mac user and he says it's the best printer he's ever had.
Pedro G, how to switch from 600dpi to 1200dpi: Don't know about a Mac, but on a Windows machine, the resolution is in Printing Preferences. then the Quality tab, then the Advanced Settings button.
Pros: Tried it out on several WinXP laptops and a Zotac book-sized Win7 machine. Install was flawless and the adapter worked glitch-free in every case. The built-in wireless in the Zotac was pathetic and this adapter became the permanent Internet connection. Excellent speed through several walls to the AP about 40' away.
Overall Review: I was very surprised that an adapter this small could work so well. And it's inexpensive to boot!
Pros: Quiet, fast and capable. Installed XP Pro from a USB CD and upgraded to Win7 Pro. All the hardware was discovered and drivers were installed. Didn't have to search for any.
Added a 23" Acer monitor with DVI using the HDMI port and an adapter cable. Just worked. An old HP LCD is plugged into the VGA as a second screen. The Zotac is mounted on the Acer monitor using the VESA mounting holes, so it doesn't take up any desk space. USB keyboard, mouse, CD/DVD burner, external HDD, and scanner all work great. MS Office 2007 and Quickbooks 2010 run nicely.
