At A Glance

Expensive toner and the lack of automatic duplexing make this small-office printer less appealing than it could be.

Tuned for speed and attractive output, this small-office printer sings--but it hits a sour note with high-priced toner and absurdly expensive memory.

For the price, you get solid overall performance--but a somewhat less solid-feeling package.
