Specifications / Scope of Supply
On the technical data I would like at this point once more, they can be found here in these accounts. The printer is very well packaged and padded with foam. Apart from the actual printer is supplied with the power cord, black and color toner (but only two thirds of the usual amount), an installation guide, driver CD's included for all major operating systems (including Mac OS and Vista) and the warranty card. A USB cable is missing as usual today.
Thanks to the very well-illustrated Quick Start Guide is the construction and connection very quickly. What is noticeable is already comfortable here, the good from the front door accessibility of toner cartridges. These are mixed up said that it should also have the non-technical users have no problems.
Not so good I was not particularly sturdy-looking paper tray, which was also initially a bit stubborn and wanted to be taken out not so well. Once the printer is connected for the first time to the power grid, it begins to operate and distribute the toner, which he informs with a reference sheet which is printed out. It should be noted at this point that the printer is actually another one, on / off switch 'has, with the unit can be disconnected from the mains.
The installation of the driver software by means of the attached driver CD. According to the installation sheet, the printer is recognized as the new software, but should this process be stopped and the installation of the included driver CD. This process takes several minutes depending on computer performance. On the top of the printer, four lamps are with the respective color in addition to the stop button. Here's the current status is displayed on the printer, ie whether data is being received, or whether it is printing new toner. It is also possible, as with many printers, on pressing the 'Stop' button to make a test page (press about two seconds) or a 'status report' (hold about five seconds) the device settings are printed.
The footprint is 39 x 35 for a color laser printer is quite small and similar to an inkjet printer and the medium quality. With nearly 14 kg of a color laser printer is very easy, however, much heavier than a comparable inkjet printers. It is operated via the corresponding menu of the computer after installing the driver. The corresponding icon sets in the status bar of your computer. It can be accessed through a double, so that appropriate settings for the printer or drivers can be made and also the respective toner can be queried. A call is also available through the context menu.
As already mentioned, access to the toner cartridge on the front cover is quite easily possible, which makes changing the cartridge clear. Also on the front door, access to the waste toner container, which lies at 8.00 EUR in the ordinary course. It extends for approximately 5000 pages black and white or 1200 color print page.
Even cleaning the refrigerator by removing the pressure unit is on the way, which facilitates handling but in my opinion clearly. The imaging unit of the printer to about 20,000 sheets b / w and 50 000 sheet designed in color and can be changed by the user, but this is making at a price of 150 EUR up no users, since this was more, at least for me, as I for the units have paid for. In that regard, so you can find something heretical, that the printer has a life expectancy of more than 20,000 sheets. The internal memory is 32 MB RAM, and this also extends fully out of household or single-user operating normally.
The printer does not have a separate single sheet feeder, which means either that you insert the paper to be printed separately to Top, or just this one sheet in the feeder. It is quite possible, envelopes, transparencies, labels, etc. to print, only requires the removal of the paper stock. Once and for me personally to get over fact, I once used window envelopes or has access to a large black and white laser. The printer has a duplex unit, as expected in this price range otherwise, do not they could be upgraded either. Modern practice, the manual is only as PDF file on the CD Rom at, on which there is also the driver.
