Summary: For the price, it should be better than bearable. HP seems to be riding on name recognition at this point. I've had the 1600 for 3 years and had no major breaks and can live with the toner cost due to our low volume. However, the negatives are outweighing the positives: CON: 1) Red is under printing. We do mostly documents & presentations (school & personal), so we don't notice until we try to do a photo. We revert to gray scale because of the greenish skin tones.
Summary: The printer has nice colors and prints beautifully if it's on regular paper. However, if you scrapbook and need to print on cardstock, do NOT buy! As a previous reviewer stated it starts to get messy after one copy. I returned mine. Also, it is quite a beast (tall and with a large footprint), so make sure you've got a large space for it to live.

Pros: Reasonable cost cartridges available . Good quality
Summary: Obwohl die Anschaffungskosten für diesen Drucker relativ gering sind, machen sich die KOsten dann beim Auswechseln der Patronen bemerkbar. Im Internet kann man aber kostengünstiger Patronen von Alternativanbietern bekommen, man muss nicht die von HP verwenden. Ansonsten ist der Laserdrucker sehr praktisch, druckt superschnell, hat eien gute Druckqualität und ein großes Papierfach. Ich nutze ihn zuhause für mein Home Office Bereich- hier erfüllt er komplett seinen Zweck.
