KX-MB271 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
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.
