Good so far, but it's expensive if you don't copy or print a lot
by jonjoey on August 20, 2005
Pros: Autofeed tray can handle lots of pages, duplex printing is fast
Cons: It's noisey/loud when operating, the software for scanning sucks, expensive
Summary: I bought this machine about 1 month ago for my home office. I print contracts, send/recieve many FAXes, require legal size paper handling and needed a good copier that ...
Summary: I bought this machine about 1 month ago for my home office. I print contracts, send/recieve many FAXes, require legal size paper handling and needed a good copier that can handle 40-60 pages in the auto-feed tray. I also wanted two paper trays that could hold a lot of paper. I tried one of the lower end HP (7100?something) and it was .. lets just say a bad experience.
In a nutshell, this multi feature product seems to work well for what I need. If you run a home business, put it away from you because it's warm until it goes into energy-save mode. You can program the time-out period, so that's cool. It's also loud when printing, so make sure you aren't bothering anyomne when working from home at night or in the morning.
The scanning software isn't very good. it comes with the PaperPort program as well as OmniPage - both programs I haven't used before. The scanning requires that you place the document in the autofeeder tray aand not on the glass itself. I don't like that because it can scan "crooked" if it doesn't feed perfectly. Also, note the following:
1. The output tray deposits docs to the left, but loads to the right.
2. The cords (USB, power, printer-cable, phone jack) are on the left side of the machine and NOT on the back - more convenient from my perspective.
3. This machine is expensive - $2,200+ when adding the optional second paper tray and a toner cartridge to replace the half-life one it comes with.
4. I don't require network printing, but it does support that feature (M20i unit only). I connect via the USB port. It saw it immediately when I hooked up out of the BOX on my XP-based computer.
This machine is large and also heavy - 50+ pounds. it's much larger than a typical HP/Brother FAX/Print/Copy machine that you'd buy at COMPUSA. I purchased this from an authorized dealer WHO I KNEW. Also, I had to buy a printer cart because this machine isn't made to sit on your desk - or even under it. If you have the two trays installed, you should know that it's very tall when sitting on a normal size SoHo desk, so keep that in mind.
Bottom line - it does what it was made for. It's a heavy duty, small business copier that also sends/receives FAXes and scans.

Very Poor Choice if You Are Networked
by LarryL on June 15, 2005
Pros: The copy function works OK
Cons: The Only Function that Works over a Network is Printing

Summary: While this machine might seem like a very good buy for a small office network, it really is not. What they fail to tell you up front is that the only function that works over ethernet is printing. To use any of the other functions this machine must be connected directly to a workstation via USB completly defeating any network usefullness. It does have decent printing features, but you can get better in a much smaller package for a lot less money, The same with plain old copying. The only thing to come close to justifying the price is network connectivity, but, except for simple printing, it DOESN'T WORK OVER A NETWORK. This is just NOT a networkable multifunction device. It's like having a seperate printer, copier, scanner, and FAX. The only one of those likely to work on a network is the printer. Same with the M20i and you can buy the 4 seperate machines for less that the M20i.

Loaded with Features

Pros: Feature Rich
Cons: Printer function is only available function from the network

Summary: We have purchased one of these and have set to buy 10 more this year. We have 10 people using it as a printer, copier, fax machine and email. So far it has been very reliable. The only complaint I have is that the lock for the scanner is not in a good place. The lock is located underneath the scanner which is where you put your hand in to grab your print jobs and so on. Every once in a while, the switch gets halfway locked or fully locked on accident and makes it so the copier/fax does not work or sends partial copies/faxes. This is the only thing I can see that is not good about this machine.
