Lightweight, compact design is great for smaller home offices and travelling businesspeople - can be easily held with one hand for transportation

Very affordable for the feature set - speed, resolution and tray handling are on-par with many higher-end models from Canon and HP

Print graphic quality is underwhelming - most detailed photos turn out grainy and dull

1 agrees

Control panel is poorly designed - lack of a text screen forces users to rely on a series of LED illuminations that are very difficult to understand

1 agrees

Replacement toner depletes quickly, and is rather expensive - individual cartridges may cost as much as $50 each

1 agrees

Overall construction is rather shoddy - unit feels flimsy/delicate
