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.
Not durable, both of ours broke down soon after the warranty expired

Summary: As usual, by the time people own a product long enough to see if it's reliable, the manufacturer is making a new model. But I don't think I'll buy any more hp printers. Our small office, with very modest print needs, has gone through two of these in under 4 years.
Summary: When I was partners in a small business we had need to do alot of printing we tried an Okidata printer but we were not happy with the cost of the supplies we found out that the HP offered optional higher capacity toner cartridges which we later discovered off brand toner also high capacity for less...
Summary: This printer was purchased to be shared among 4 co-workers. It was great until we "Needed" to replace the black cartridge after two months. A new HP cartridge was purchased and every thing worked fine for two weeks. Then the drum light came on.
Summary: A nice printer marred by a couple of annoying faults: 1. The supplied HP Toolbox software only works on Windows. If you are a MacOS X user you cannot configure most of the settings on this printer without using a PC despite all of the documentation that comes with the printer saying otherwise.
Summary: I have liked HP printers in the past and have been very pleased with my LaserJet 5L which I have owned for ten years. To take advantage of HPs trade in program, I decided to upgrade to a 2550n color laser printer. I read the first review here, on this printer and dismissed the low rating as a fluke.
I agree with the last reviewer... just an "ok" printer.

Summary: I did a bunch of research before buying the HP 2550N, because this was my first color laser printer for my home and home business use. (I've had a LaserJet 6P monochrome laser for years that just keeps on chugging along, trouble-free, and costs very little for toners.
