I would give it 5 stars if it did not require that I reboot it between prints. Help!

Summary: It worked great for over 6 months. I used replacement toner for a while then went back to HP because it would not clean properly (left ghosting). Now it will print only if I load a print cue (but not start it), reboot the printer, and release the cue just after it starts booting up. It scans and prints great on XP (USB), but it will not scan with the LAN and Win 7 (from the first day). It never printed or scanned from the USB on Win 7. Any help would be appreciated.
Summary: We went to a laser printer for our home office business we have owned and operated for over 20 yrs. The laser cartridges is by far superior to ink jet, but the attributes of this particular printer leave a lot to be desired. The speed of simple documents is pitiful. If you want to print off envelopes, plan on spending time baby sitting your printer. You MAY get 10 envelopes before it goes into paper jam or cleaning mode.
Summary: Its slow to print the first page due to warm up time but the ink is really expensive and it runs out quickly. I estimated that per page cost for full color page is $0.45/per copy. You can get color copies cheaper at local print shop.
Summary: Terribly disappointed. This printer cost over $500. Bought it for light office use. After the warranty expires (1 year) the printer starts malfunctioning terribly. Basically after every three pages, it'll give a "Misprint" error. Considering I often have to print 8-10 pages at a time, this has created a huge time burden in my business. I've resorted to using my old $28 color printer from Epson that takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.
Summary: Terrible product. I didn't buy one from amazon but i own one. Always crashing and freezing. Getting device busy errors all the time making me have to power rest it by unplugging it. paper jams a lot sometimes. sometimes if there is a problem receiving a fax, it would be stuck saying "connecting" and if you try to cancel it, it would be stuck saying "canceling". Too much trouble. I even updated the firmware and nothing has changed except for a fancy new interface.
Summary: I scan a lot of documents and was reasonably happy with the unit for awhile; however, it has begun giving me an error when scanning at least half the time. This takes too much time to keep redoing the scans so it looks like I will be replacing it. The toner is expensive as well and it seems like I am always replacing them. I like the prints and overall it is a good machine, but if you scan a lot, leave this one alone. Not a good value.
Only good in small quantities if you have LOTS of time

Summary: Every little thing causes it to "Initialize" which at the very least is 15 minutes and has taken 30+ minutes. Very annoying when all you did was add paper and have a copy kob to get completed.
Summary: Bought this unit at Staples a few years ago, thank goodness I bought the 3 year extended warranty, because about 1.5 years into it, this unit started giving me problems. I use it at home, almost on a daily basis; I am in sales, therefore, quality looking presentations are important for me. I used high quality 28# laser paper and everything, but about 18 months into using this product, certain graphics and text started becoming more and more distorted on paper.
