    The printer can definitely be used to print on both sides with a little manipulation.

    From the Manual :

    You can print your document on both sides of the paper, instead of just one
    side. Click on the Advanced button on the Paper/Quality or Layout tab. From the
    Pages to Print drop-down menu select Print Odd Pages Only. Click OK to print.
    After the odd numbered pages of the document have been printed, remove the
    document from the output tray. Reload the paper in the input tray with the blank side
    facing up. Return to the Pages to Print drop-down menu and then select Print Even
    Pages Only. Click OK to print.

    So, RTFM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
