It's a Big, Slow Workhorse

Summary: I got sick of replacing ink cartridges and decided to give this machine a try. I have had it now for about 9 months. The thing is big, but I have the space and don't care about that. It is noisy when in use and even sitting still. Every so often, even when not being used, it goes through some sort of cycle and whirls and moans for about a minute, eventually stopping. Sometimes when I'm working with my back to the machine, it startles me when it starts its odd noises.
Summary: I use this in my small office setting. We enjoy the quality of the prints and scans. Two problems: 1. The printer is pretty slow- I thought laser printers were supposed to be fast 2. It runs out of ink VERY quickly. In this case less than a month and the printer is already telling me to replace the black cartridge. (We average about 10 pages a day). Update- 2 months later and we are still on our original ink cartridges.
Summary: The driver settings of this computer need to be adjusted if you use MS Office 2013. See the MS Office blogs to obtain the workaround for the issue of only being able to print one MS Office document before the program freezes. The printer itself, seems to be as good as or nicer than our previous HP. Print quality is fine for my needs; labels, certificates & envelopes.
Summary: First off let me say, I've own probably about a dozen printers over the years, first Epson, then Canon, then back and forth between HP and Brother. All work for a time and then die. MOst of them that I've had were Inkjet and the trouble with Inkjet printers is that if you don't use it quite often the ink hardens in the jets and ruins the printer; something they neglect to tell you in ANY review I've ever seen online.
Summary: Bought this for a small office. With multiple people using it, the lid was easily damaged opening and closing while copying items on the glass. Would not be a problem if only the person who buys it uses it. However, individuals who are not vested in the cost of the printer are not likely to take the same care. Good for home office...printing quality awesome and wireless worked out of the box. I recommend keeping it in a home office.
Summary: This is a great small office printer. We use it sparingly, so the fact that it prints so slowly isn't too much of an issue. The print quality is wonderful and we've already printed some beautiful brochures with it. It jams from time to time, and it's a bit difficult to set up to a network. I've had to contact HP support twice now to connect a few different computers, but they always solve the issue.
Summary: Reason I gave three stars is: First printer I bought had problem - it did not print from beginning, just displayed...Printing document. Then I bought another one and it prints everything I need with excellent quality.
Summary: I bought this printer for my home about 6 months ago. For $299 it was a bargain - color laser printing, scanning, copier, eprint, etc... We have 3 laptops and a bunch of phones in the house, had already been through several HP and Epson all-in-ones in the past few years, and i was sick of ink jet. The Good: works well, prints wirelessly from Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, scans to Windows/Mac, etc. Quality is good. Setup was easy.
