Rated 4 out of 5 by from kx-mb271 Once you buy the unit and have to disconnect the unit from your tower or have a bad virus and need to wipe the hard drive clean it is impossible to download the driver, It use to be available now it is not and you might as well through it it out because you can't get the driver.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from got what I paid for (not so good) Price was very good. Quality initially was great. Actually bought two of these units. But, problems/cons outweighed. Pros: Cheap initial quality good. Able to refill toner easily with aftermarket toners. (open toner cartridge, pour, insert!) Cons: Difficult to install more than one of same model on one computer (ie., my laptop, using same model in two locations) Very poor drivers. not very good options on print quality, etc etc. no built in double-sided print support (ie., manually duplex) quality of printing deteriorated over time. OEM drums, toner cartridges are EXPENSIVE, with little to no other options available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is indeed an great printer at an excellent price. Unfortunately it will only run on a windows machine. I have one computer that runs windows but several that run other OSes. It is too bad that at least the print funtions cannot be shared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Christmas Present Got the unit for Christmas. Works Great in all areas. Fast printing, clear readable scanning and PDF and OCR functions are easy to use and print. Would recommend. I usually print from 500-1000 pages per month and the life of the toner beats the pants off of inkjet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow not much toner used this printer is way worth the money i do a lot of copying and print (approximately 200-500 pages a month iv had the printer since October 2008 and i found out it uses every last bit of toner is its cartage and its last page of the toner cartage was perfect not one spec of toner missing

  • How do I remove a document/paper jammed?
    Note: Unplug the unit from the outlet.

    To remove a jammed document/paper, you will need to open the front cover and pull the paper towards you. You may also clean the feed roller with a lint free cloth that is dampened with alcohol.

    For specific information please consult your operating manual.
  • Why is the fax machine not recording the incoming message?
    If the answering part of the unit wont receive messages, first be sure that the auto answer is set to tam/fax mode and the red light button should be lit up. If it still doesn't work, you may try unplugging the unit from the power for initial reset. If it doesn't work, call Panasonic technical support hotline for further instruction.
  • Will there be a fax driver software that will work on my latest Mac Operating System?
    For Mac OS X 10.5 / 10.6 / 10.7
    Panasonic supports following functions:
    • Printer Driver
    • Scanner Driver (Pull Scan)
    • Push Scan
    • PC fax driver (sending only, fax supported models only)

    For Mac OS X 10.3 / 10.4
    Panasonic supports following function:

    • Printer Driver

    More detail, just go to

  • What does it mean by "fax in memory" on the display?
    If the display shows "FAX MEMORY FULL" it's possible the document received exceeds the fax machine's memory capacity. The memory will need to be cleared and you will lose any received documents in memory. To clear the memory, remove the power cord for five seconds and reconnect it. Receiving large pictures or colored graphics can consume the memory.
