Prints okay BUTThis Pantum M6500mw printer is good value and prints well enough but it can be quite difficult to keep set up on a network and even then it drops the "connection" a lot as I spent hours trying to get it to stay setup on my home network but after much frustration and many google searches finally found that I had to go into the printer itself and manually set up the network .... though this helps it still drops the internal settings and hence the connection so I have to revisit the printers config via the browser to reset it more often than I sho...

Absolutely fabulousMy first printer was a dot matrix back in the early 90's. Since then, the printer industry has morphed into something monstrous. Cheap crappy printers, with exorbitantly priced ink/ toners, or expensive goliaths, leased with tax plans the accountants love. Then, after years of Canon, HP, Lexmark, Brother, Epson etc., I came across this. I wondered, what do they do in China? Surely the public would not put up with the shenanigans of these OEM printer manufacturers overseas.....and they don't. I quick search for the Pantum laser printer brand, re... Read morevealed thousands of happy users...4.8/5 stars, and over 16k reviews. Toner Station on eBay was my resultant retailer. 4 days later (Including a weekend), the printer was at my door. Installation was a breeze with Win 10 handling everything automatically. A quick check of the toner cartridge, and paper and away I went. The prints were clean and crisp, and far quicker and quieter than any inkjet. The scanner worked perfectly also, with high detail apparent from a colored magazine cover.....I'm impressed. For just under $200 delivered, includes a full-sized toner, good for 1600 pages ... I couldn't ask for more. A couple of months later, and everything is working as it should. I connected to the home WiFi network, and ditched the USB cable. Scan, copy and print as normal.....even from my old Huawei Y7 phone! Happy as a pig in sh.....!
