Summary: Dependable, reliable, econonical, fast. I have 6 of these printers throughout the office. It is nice that there are 4 separate color ink cartridges so if one color runs out, you are not buying all colors
Summary: I recently purchased this printer because as a grad student I have been printing lots of papers and images. This printer has worked flawlessly and is very fast on draft mode. The duplexing feature is convenient, but is very slow.
Summary: I needed a parallel port printer that could still perform decently at a moderate demand level, and I got exactly that. I had none of the dreaded HP installation software problems nor did I have the page cut-off problem mentioned by another reviewer. I am very pleased by the speed and quality of the output and the ink usage seems quite reasonable. Also, the printer machinery seems very solid.
Summary: I bought the HP Business Inkjet 1200d out of frustration with dealing with my girlfriend's Lexmark. She doesn't do much printing, so the Lexmark cartridges died quickly with a full inkload. But at $70 per set of Lexmarks, the HP seemed more promising with it's separate printheads at $33 apiece, and ink tanks at similar costs.
Summary: I've had the 1200D for about 6 months, about 4,000 pages. So far it is FANTASTIC for my needs. Ink cost about 2 cents per page instead of 10 cents, I'd estimate. Perfect duplexing, very FAST, and NO quality issues or paper handling issues. Software is working well on older Win 2000 pro system. Easy installation on one computer. Software seems perfect. I did have a one time setup issue getting it to network perfectly with 4 other computers on the home microsoft network.
Summary: I decided to upgrade from my Deskjet 990cse workhorse when I got tired of how long high quality page prints took and how expensive the ink became. I've had this printer for a few months now and really saw it's benefit while putting together a mass mailing to 300 people (some color, 2 pages, mail merge items). It has sailed through this job and seems to "sip" the ink rather than gobble it like my old one.
