Summary: I purchased a used M1522nf and it failed shortly out of the box. First the formatter board died. I was able resurrect it by removing it and baking it at 350 for 10 minutes in the oven. Then the scanner stepper motor failed. Again, i was able to fix it by purchasing another motor for $35. It seemed to work good for a few months, then started locking up or shutting down sporadically. The last straw was when the replacement stepper motor failed again.
HP Laserjet M1522nf: Good printer, but with one major drawback.
6 January 2009
Summary: The HP Laserjet M1522nf is a multifunction printing / scanning machine. The main use of this machine in our office is as a photocopier. It was chosen as it was one of the only laser printers capable of photocopying that we found that only has black capability. It is networkable, and I have used it over the network as a printer and a scanner. You can also use it as a fax but I haven't had an opportunity to try faxing yet.
