This is a great home-office machine. It handles the kind of volume I occasionally have to crank, like thirty-plus copies of material for my college classes. It works fairly quietly, with consistent quality. It holds enough paper that I don't have to check it constantly, and I like the bottom-feed paper system. I got a very good tip on this machine from a friend who is a computer instructor, and in fact used to work for HP in Europe. He was right, this is a great machine for the money. Take this one over any of the home machines, even if you have to pay a nickel more. Forget the multiple function types that fax, scan, make coffee and sometimes don't print so well...this is a workhorse.
