Very pleased with this printer. Economical to run with very good colour output (quite adequate for photographs, though not in the same league as a good inkjet photo-printer).

Grumbles: it's quite large front to back (512mm)---the arrangement of the built in duplexer contributes to this; it's heavy!---you shouldn't be needing to move it often; and duplexing is on the slow side---but then this is the base model.

For a home/small office colour laser printer producing good quality, economical output, where speed is not an absolute priority, it does an excellent job.

UPDATE: April 2010 -- no problems whatsoever, and even with the whole family using it (GCSEs and A levels, plus...), very economical.

UPDATE: 25 Feb. 2011 -- have no regrets about buying this printer; it's well made and frugal on toner.

NOTE: [what follows does not apply to later versions of Ubuntu, but is left in for the record] if you're running Linux (especially Ubuntu 9.10), you may find the 'ppd' (driver) needs modifying. Remove the section concerning 'trapping' which begins at line 105. I find this is conflicting with something in 9.10---all you'll get is a few typed lines of Postscript data (it worked perfectly in 9.04). The ppd is on the CD, or can be downloaded from Kyocera. It should be installed in /usr/share/cups/model/Kyocera/ (add the required directories if they are not already present).

I bought this as an office use printer and purchased it because it was the only one in the price range that could have additional paper cassettes added. I bought two of the pf-500 cassettes.

The overall build is flimsy especially the MP tray. I would not open or close it too much or put too much heavy paper on it. The ink does not last long either so be prepared to change refills about every two months even with light running. But I think that is normal for all colour printers.

Main problem we have is the paper cassettes which are supposed to handle up to 120gsm paper really can't handle that. Thicker paper often slides up the printer at an angle and then will jam. I believe this has to do with the paper cassette. If you intend on using 120gsm paper buy the more expensive pf-510 cassettes or you will have problems. Even configuring the printer for the thicker paper doesn't help as the problem is with the mechanism itself.

That said it is an excellent small group printer and has an excellent price point. if you keep yourself to 80gsm or even 100gsm paper you will be fine. Above that look to the high level models and paper cassettes.

Verified Purchase
Did not find the included instructions great but had no real problem setting up this printer.

I liked the price which includes a built in duplexer as standard and the good amount of pre installed memory.

Found no problems running with windows 7 [64 bit].

Would be even better if it came with a better price on toner kits for this machine.

happy overall with this buy.
