Summary: My printer of the same make died and i loved it. All I needed was the outside case to make it work and that is what I got!!!!! It arrived promptly and packaged great. I was back in commission very quickly.
Summary: I have had a 2550L for several years and it has been fabulous, the best printer I ever purchased. However, HP in their latest printer updates, made it so this product will NOT work. As of 11/1/2012 HP has stated...they are aware of this problem and will be releasing a solution "in the near future" As of today HP has not done it. Check HP website in the forum for updates.
Summary: I have had this printer HP 2550L for about 10 years now, when this model came out it cost $1200 wish was pricey for me, but I wanted use it for a home business, and I was able to get a floor model for $700 during the holiday season. I am still surprise to see them selling used versions and supplies online. As far a cost it is very affordable as far as performance it is very slow and a bit noisy but it gets the work done.
Cons: Burns through very expensive toner cartridges at an incredible rate. The browser-based Toolbox control panel has now stopped functioning and I have been unable to revive it by doing a clean uninstall/reinstall. Contacted HP support and their only sugges
Pros: Like most HP products, the 2550L is attractive, well built, and well supported by HP.
Cons: The price per page is about 16 times that of a Lexmark C544N (30,000 pages per toner vs. 4,000), which can be bought online for as little as $275, as of this writing. The Lexmark offers 1200 dpi, versus 600 dpi for the HP, and 25 ppm!
Summary: I had a printer just like it and it broke so I wanted one the same. they are great printers but HP does not make them any more. I am sure they have ones just as good but I had these cartridges that I needed to use up and they are not cheap.
Cons: Noisy, all the time performs unprovoked exercises without warning. All the time reports paper jams. All the time flashes red light. When you press green, it starts printing. Paper tray always puts paper askew. EVERY page a nuisance.
Summary: Great printing quality but slugish when printing a large file...wanted to print a picture of my son and when clicked to print, it took just about 1 minute to process and start printing. You will definately need to upgrade the printer's memory if you want it to print faster...I have done that and it now takes roughly 15-20 seconds to print my 8MP pictures. Other than that, it is a good entry level printer.
