Solid, fast printing, very expensive consumables I bought this printer thinking that I was picking up a bargain and on the whole, I really like it – it’s fast, the print quality is good and for a shade under £[] you can’t complain.My experience has been marred, however, by a couple of issues, which is why I give it 3 stars, not 5.Firstly, I was led to believe that the printer shipped with toner cartridges that were 50% capacity, yet the Black one ran out after about 700 pages.

No memory problems were encountered when producing prints on this setting although some reviews recommended a memory upgrade if using this setting for batch printing.Installation and setup were easy with a seperate CD supplied for Windows 7 installation.The toner replacement…
