Good points:
Clear print. Cost effective supplies. Quality build.
From out of the box to printing was just a few minutes.

Built in duplex facility works fast and handles paper cleanly and effeciently.

Unit looks good and is simple to operate - almost straight out of the box.

Excellent otional equipment (Paper tray) Laser cabinet

Choice of normal yeald (1500 pages @ 5% cover) and high yeald (5000 pages at 5% cover) toner cartridges.
