Summary: I recently bought a Dell printer which was so crap, it fell apart when I tried to change the ink cartridge for the first time. My boyfriend and I also spent an entire Saturday night on the phone with Dell support trying to set up the remote print functions-- never happened. Anyway, this printer is awesome in comparison. never jams,, prints intelligently, is soooooo much better than the Dell.
Summary: A miracle device! You put paper in it, and it magically prints 35ppm! It's like I woke up in the future! I upgraded from my HP 3si after a million or so pages, I don't know why I waited so long! I want all that time back I wasted waiting on pages to print! And so cheap! Know what a LaserJet 3si cost back in the day? Yep, could have bought a car practically! Don't hesitate, don't walk, run out and get one of these! And the 500 sheet feeder. Found one for $79 on ebay.
Summary: We replaced our heavy duty copy Xerox Machine $400 dollars rent a month, for this inexpensive equipment and it has worked for six months without problems. I recommend you buy the HP maintenance service, which includes the toner for about $80 dollars a month. If something happens they will come and fix it and also they send the toners. They will charge you per printed sheet but it is ridicoulessly lower that the XEROX. we pay about a $100 dollars per month in total vs.
Summary: We have several of these at work that we use for group printers. So far, they have shown to be well built and work well. This is our go-to model now when we need to replace a printer here at the office. We like the scan to email options which work directly from the printer without requiring a software install or connection to a computer. And we've recently started using the scan to network folder feature with our new document management system.
Summary: Overall a good all in one. The on;y drawback is the touch pad. It is cumbersome to use especially when used for high volume faxing. I have this printer in my office and mostly use it for faxing. Dialing is not as easy since it ends up missing a number if you don't pres the screen hard enough. HP could have opted for the old fashion keypads or make a touch pad that is as user friendly as the iphone. Hey HP, time to rethink to maybe base future design on apple efficiency.
