    Oustanding colour laser printer

    I work in a college and one of these printers was purchased for a department. We have been nothing less than amazed by the quite outstanding print quality and impressive speed. With 1200dpi colour resolution and the most natural and pleasing colour representation we have ever witnessed from a colour laser or photocopier, we don't believe there is a better colour laser for the very reasonable price.
