Summary: Unable to use this printer. Print quality was the worst. Needs cleaning & repairs - far more than a new one would cost. Long black lines on print jobs - Definately disappointed in Sellers that state their product is in great condition. - Beware.
Summary: Our office has utilized 2 of these in the 12 years we've been in business and although they print a little dark, they do pretty well. After an identical model started producing unacceptable quality, I purchased this used machine thinking I would be able to use all the unopened ink cartridges still in stock.
Summary: I bought three of these printers and had the same problem with all three. After about 6 months to a year the color went bad. Since I had all these expensive toner cartridges I bought another printer- same model. And the color went bad. So I did the same thing again- and again the color went bad. I now have 3 network printers that will print in black and white- but not in color. These printers are horrible. If I could make it less than 1 star I would.
Summary: To be honest, this printer sucks. First of all, if you run out of colour ink, you can't print black. Besides that colour ink seems to disappear out of thin air very, very fast. Another problem I encountered was the bad alignment. Lots of time colours aren't aligned. At the start I could fix it very easily with just rebooting the printer or resetting it. But after sometimes it just doesn't come back, specially the magenta colour.
Pros: Works well as a typical color laser printer.
Cons: Cartridges are very expensive at $125 each. Since there are four cartridges, you will be shelling out more than what you paid for the printer itself to replace them. And if you try buying cartridges from a toner-replacing service, you risk getting a crack
Summary: I bought this printer to use for my business printers flyers. Color is great, however, shortly after purchase I started getting a line in the prints. Turns out the cyan cartridge was bad. Took a printer repair person to figure this out at a serious cost and then they wanted to charge me a full price for a used cartridge. When I needed to replace the cartridges, it turns out they can't be refilled and the cost of a new set is about a 1/3 of the price of the printer.
Summary: I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS MACHINE!!! I just can't believe 36 people gave 5 stars. They must be associated with HP! I started having a problem with line on a copy and talk to technician which cost me $36 even my problem is not solved. Also you have to have all inks in order to print black copy. I realized this after I bought 2 color inks replaced, knowing this line not going to be removed I don't want to invest another $90.00 for one more color ink.
Summary: The printer leaves gray banding on glossy paper. even HP brand laser paper. The resolution and color are ok but this printer falls way short of the 2550 printer before it. Do not buy if you will be printing photos or brochures.
Cons: Came dirty, prints dirty and for every clean page it prints, I throw away 15 pages that didn't print cleanly. Nothing works to clean it and this is the second time an HP product has proven to be a white elephant and cost me too much money.
