Within two weeks we have had the top paper feeder only pull sheets in halfway. We are looking into a replacement unit, but at this point we are not too impressed. The bottom feeder has also triggered a paper jam red flag although we have been unable to find any such jam either of the two times. The printer otherwise functions properly. Very low yield starter toners (1500 prints) and fairly pricey replacements.
