    Great little machine, set it and forget it.

    I have to agree. When my wife asked me for a small MFP for her business that was reliable and easy to use this was my only recommendation to her. I love these machines...

    good basic, low volume machine, no bells and whistles. copy/print/scan/fax all possible.

    I like them. We have many of them in the field. Only one CAVEAT.

    Don't ever lean on them, put pressure on them from the top or pick them up improperly.


    I've got two in my shop with broken scanner support arms and scanner frames. They are basically useless now and only good as printers.

    Also surprised none of you mentioned the issue with the ADF Double Feeding? We've replaced the spring plate per the bulletin along with motors, 1 way bearings, clutches etc and some still are iffy. We eventually superglue plastic wedges to make the spring plate firmer. It varies per unit. We try and try and test and test till it works right.

    Sorry but I donīt agree, great little beast. Well tell your customers to eat less burgers and not to sleep on the machine, hehehe

    Its a good machine but make sure your office wont print A3 size.

    Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.

    Good point! That one's surprised a few people already.

    One cool feature, though, the little beast is a color scanner.

    So, just when is this "old enough to know better" thing supposed to kick in?
