So far so good, February 15, 2004
By A Customer
Seems to be a great printer, drivers work well, no XP trouble. Prints slow (One page per 50-60 seconds) with long pauses between pages, till the entire print job is spooled, then easily meets the specs of 4 pages per minute. TIP: Since I routinely print 200-300 pages per job, I set the driver to NOT print first copy till the entire job spools; The job spools much more rapidly and then the printer prints continuously. Now I am much more than pleased.
Had it for about 45 days and have done about 2000-3000 bochures so far. Print quality is excellent to my eye.
Spec alert! You cannot upgrade the memory of this printer, in spite of what the specs say on Amazon! 32megs is built in, and that is what you have to live with.



Beautiful Color in Efficient Printing, June 1, 2004
James R. Holtan "Info and more..." (Oakland, CA USA)
     
After multiple trips to Kinko's paying a fortune for color printing, I decided the new generation of personal color lasers made it time to buy.
With an important print job coming up, my research period was short. After leaning towards the HP personal color laser (based simply on HP reputation), I discovered this beauty. My decision was certainly swayed by its much higher print resolution -- after all, anyone willing to pay the price of a personal color laser is someone who's interested in print quality. However, I was also impressed by advertised print speed and cost.
Well, I was not disappointed on any front. The color graphics are incredible. While this is not a 'photo quality' printer (and, in fact, cannot even use special glossy papers), it produces superior printed material that's well suited for any professional business presentation. Even photos print with what I would call very high quality.
As mentioned in previous reviews, start time can be slow if it.


Great deal - and you can upgrade the memory!, May 4, 2004
Mad-Gunner "Mad-Gunner" (Austin, TX USA)
Unlike what somebody said previously in these reviews, you can upgrade the memory for this printer. I purchased a 256MB DIMM and upgraded the stock/onboard 32MB to 288MB. As I print over the network to this printer from multiple PC's, the extra memory should help spooling big documents.
Overall, I love the price for the features. My only gripe is that I do tend to see long pauses between jobs, and warm-up time to start a job after power-saving mode is often a full minute or so.
So, if you're not in a hurry, this is a great printer!
For the price, I can deal with the wait. :)
