Conclusion: The HP Color LaserJet 2600n ties for the title of lowest-price color laser to date. But it ups the ante by including an Ethernet connection. Even better, it offers reasonably good performance and output quality, making it a strong contender as the low-cost color laser of choice.
Pros: Good performance for the price. Excellent text and good or better graphics and photo quality. Includes Ethernet connector.
Cons: The ratings of good for photos and the high end of good for graphics are below the best available for color lasers.
