GeneralSo ... the new colour laser printer Pin

Works really well, with a caveat.
It's small, quick, and produces lovely output on "regular" paper - it's also quieter and doesn't attract the cat who always wanted to go "fishing" down the paper slot when the inkjet was printing. He's not interested in this one, not even slightly.

It even does really nice photo prints, now the photo paper has arrived (you can't use inkjet paper at all, it gums up the machine if you try, so I donated my stock of paper, card, and labels to next door).
Only hassle is heavy weight photo paper doesn't feed well - the spec and the driver both say "up to 220gsm" and I'm using 200 - look like I have to offset the image by one cm from the leading edge in order to get it all on the print rather than starting on the roller and transferring onto the rear... And the card does "curl" somewhat, which is annoying, but fixable.

But that said, my old inkjet had problems feeding photocard as well, and often needed a helping hand to get going! As a replacement for an inkjet, this shows signs of being well useful.
