    I selected this printer based of print quality and total running cost over the long term. Its prints look good. Connectivity suits my needs - ethernet connection into a wireless router. It includes a number of "features" I don't need and don't want - like printing via the web, but they can be turned off. What I really do not like at all is the poor state of the drivers and partly supported OSes - e.g. check the driver downloads for Win 8.1 - it has native drivers but there are only Universal Print Drivers for Win 8.1 Pro and Enterprise. Finally there are odd mismatches between the installed software and the information on the web. The "Help and Learn Center" has a useful looking list of common problems - some show helpful animations on how to clear paper jams, others always open the same User Guide document from the web regardless of what problem you are trying to solve. But this is not as bad a the Internet Services included in Printing Preferences that just open a web browser, don't even try load any web page, and leave you to work it out yourself.

    well,I suppose the driver has a problem.because i have installed the driver on two operating systems.one of them is windows 8.1 and the other one is windows xp.as far as i know,a cd driver is compatible with windows 7 and 8.1.but when i use dobule printing for an english documents, it creates some unusual characters.
