Do not buy

Chris W, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: This printer is a disaster. No matter how many times I install new drivers or try to update the software it fails to connect after a single use. The scan function routine gives a "fail to connect to scanner" error message. Luckily I received this for free from work. I am a cheapo but I have run out of patience for this machine.

My second HP printer is yet another disappointment

K.D. in California, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: Print quality was fine. Scanning was awkward, but it worked. But I got constant, cryptic error messages, so I would just keep hitting "OK" and it would eventually work. That was annoying, but I could live with it. But of course, just like my previous HP printer, it broke after 16 months of very light use. I never even got through a full toner cartridge before the mechanical parts of the printer just stopped working.

Works OK, but

lhagan, Amazon

  • Summary: Decent quality laser printer and scanner, but the ADF (automatic document feeder) is a weak point. After about a year and a half, it would stop scanning and indicate an ADF jam for no reason. No amount of troubleshooting tips from the user guide had any effect. Since the ADF is not replaceable and it was out of warranty, I just got whole new printer. Just days after the warranty expired on the new one, the exact same thing happened. Time to try a different model.

This printer is absolutely terrible.

Anonymous, Newegg
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Surprisingly, I bought several M1536DNF's for the company I work for and they all work amazingly. I don't understand what happened here, but the poor design and quality of this unit made it pure hell to use from the moment I bought it to the moment I chucked it.
  • Pros: It looks pretty nice for the price.
  • Cons: The scanner was a terror. It took approximately forever to scan anything through the Automatic Document Feeder and it would fail roughly half of the time. Of course, the scanning software would destroy your work and force you to start over. It once took me close to 45 minutes to scan 10 or 15 sheets this way. Completely unacceptable.

Bought to replace an HP1200

Pat, Staples
27 June 2013
  • Excerpt: We had some software issues getting the printer hooked up and it took quite a while. Biggest surprise for me is how much toner it uses. With my last printer, the toner lasted over a year. It's been five months and my second toner is already running out. For me, I like an actual printed manual and this doesn't come with one. So I emailed HP to see if I could get one, the response was a bit snotty, giving me a link to print my own or look things up online.
  • Pros: Seems To Work Well
  • Cons: Hard Setup, Too much toner used

Not Office quality

Doc Hawk, Staples
8 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this printer in lieu of a replacement toner cartridge for an existing printer. The printer cost me $17 more than the existing printer cartridge. I consider this printer to be a throw away. I do like the reduced footprint and the LAN capability. Although the software was loaded in the primary hard wired computer, I needed to install the printer software on the other computers using the router to access the printer.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Fast Print Time, Lan Capable
  • Cons: Exposed Supply Tray, Fax Capture Of Phone, No Custom Reduction

Driver nightmare

Steve O, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: I've purchased a few of these for our workplace and what I've found is that sometimes they work fine and sometimes they don't work at all. You can't install just the driver for them, either. They will not respond unless you install all the junkware from HP, nor does HP provide a standalone driver. The printer will randomly cut off large chunks of print jobs that, when sent to other printers, would not get cut off.

ADF problems

wally H., Newegg
4 May 2012
  • Pros: Fast print even when not used for days.
  • Cons: Noisy adf. Scanner gives many document feed errors. Hard to complain for a $100 printer (on sale) but I bought it for the ADF feature. If that doesn't work properly (i.e. jam, jam, jam) then it's not much good to me.
