For most printing, the fast daft option works very effectively. It also prints at the fastest speed shooting the paper out with decent quality. This function works for word processing documents or for quick data print outs or notes. However, if you're working with pictures and the like, you should consider raising the quality to high with the star rating of 3. This will obviously slow down your printing speed but will increase the quality dramatically. The scanning is a little slow, especially if you're doing it at a high resolution, but is very effective and captures a lot of detail. The paper tray could be larger as when you're doing large products you end up burning through a lot of paper. The jams are quite annoying also as it's difficult to clear.
