"Great features for the price - Excellent for home office network"4.5 starson by Doncrescas
Pros: Very Low Price, Crisp Fast Output, Duplexing, Networking, Postscript
Cons: Initial network setup not seamless
Summary: If you can get this printer at the lower end of the price spectrum (I paid ~$160) it is an amazing value.
The printer is compact, has great looking text output, and duplexes. Face it, if you are not printing double sided you are wasting paper. Plus, the built in networking allows you to configure the printer via a local TCP/IP port. This means that if you have a wireless router, you get wireless printing right away.
Another important feature is that it has native postscript emulation. If you print a lot of PDF files you will see noticeably more accurate printing.
One small downside is that if you know absolutely nothing about how your home network is configured you may need to read some manuals. Particularly, you need to install the setIP application first and configure the printer to use the correct network settings before installing the drivers. Once you have, the installation software is very easy to use.
It also does not include usb or Ethernet cables, but at this price who can complain.
I can't find another printer that comes close to these features at this price.
