Bought as an alternative to the default inkjet option as we print infrequently, and had always felt like we were paying for a lot of ink that got used up in priming the inkjet each time it was needed. So far the Epson seems to be doing a great job on that, proving economical to run. Networking is great, the power saving mode is worthwhile without being a major inconvenience, and it's relatively small for a laser printer.
The one downside is the quality of photos. I didn't expect inkjet levels of quality (or I'd have bought an inkjet!), but it's really not suited for photo printing at all - images are muddy and dull even on good paper. I haven't yet messed with colour profiles and other settings, so it may be possible for it do much better, but 'out of the box' it's disappointing.
