This is a small printer - with its trays shut, its footprint is only slightly larger than an A4 sheet, so it will fit easily on a table or desk. Before printing can start, though, you have to fold down the front panel, which then becomes the paper feed tray, and fold out a two-stage output tray from the top. These trays increase the overall space the printer occupies by about a quarter.
The paper tray takes up to 150 sheets, but has no cover to protect it from dust or spills. Other manufacturers have included a clip-on cover for their entry-level laser printers and Canon even incorporated one which folded down from inside the case; a very neat solution. Not having a cover means you need to fold the front and top panels closed between uses.
The control panel, if the two, pinhead LEDs and power button warrant this term, show when the machine is active and when an error condition such as a paper jam has happened.
