Summary: I can't believe these are still around. I owned one a few years back. For a hundred bucks, if u get one in good working condition with full toner, you should be pretty happy. From what I remember, it is slow and loud like the trolls mentioned. What sticks out in my mind was image quality.
Summary: OK, I have owned this model of printer for about five years now. I got tired of the slow, messy, cheesy, ink jet printers and decided to go for a quality color laser printer. As an IT Professional and someone who supported business class laser printer, I knew that HP provides quality.
Summary: We use this printer at work. It sucks...makes a ton of noise but nothing ever comes out. It takes literally 10 minutes for the first sheet to come out after a bunch of blinking lights and noise. Have you ever seen the movie Office Space.
Summary: It's slow piece of junk. And I mean SLOW. I've had to use this thing for the last two years at my work. It's been an experience similar to the one they had with the printer on the movie Office Space. The sad part is that I work in a computer support office.
Summary: I just bought this thing from Amazon and all I can say is WOW!!!! This is probably the best purchase I have ever made. This thing is everything I ever expected and more!! It's easy to use as well - even my wife can operate it!
Excerpt: Well, I have just read Richards review and I cannot disagree more! Richard, you said you hadn't had time to fully determine the total effectiveness of the printer, well now it's a couple of months down the line, come back and let us know what you think!

Excerpt: The Hewlett Packard Laserjet 2500n is a colour laserjet printer designed for small and medium sized office applications. After the problems we have had at my office with the slow printing speed of our HP Laserjet 4500, the decision was taken to back up this printer with a second colour laser...
Excerpt: Although the printer is rather expensive to purchase, the quality of the prints are excellent. Full colour pages are printed in seconds - I would never use a deskjet or bubblejet again. The toners and drum need to be replaced fairly frequently if you use it a lot.
Pros: Excellent print quality
Cons: Drum and toners are expensive and need to be replaced after around 1500 prints, takes a long time to warm up and is often noisy and can make the desk shake . Only the feed tray, the base tray is an extra cost (around £100 I believe)
