Summary: We currently have this printer, but it was at the end of its life. We decided to buy this on Amazon after reading many ads. We decided on this vendor and everything was perfect. It arrived as expected and in mint condition. It was better than I expected considering it was used.
Pros: First printer my client actually liked. Sometimes you can get a great deal on it. Network printer means it needn't be tethered to a computer... works with Macs (unlike the 1600).
Cons: The cost of toner is about 75$ a toner.... so for four toners (not that they all go out at once) we're talking 300$ ... my client is on her second 2600N because she got a better deal on getting a brand-new printer with 4 toners included than she would have on the toner alone.
Summary: It is pretty large when compared against a inkjet so make sure you have desk space for it.
Pros: Easy network setup and good print quality. It is no slower than my old inkjet printer so no issue there. The cartriges are only somewhat spendy at ~$80 each through Newegg and with as seldom as I print stuff off I'll save a ton of money.
Summary: I upgrade from a 10 year old HP (Laserjet6L) print for printing speed and color. Plus my old printer was operating on borrowed time. I print about 250-300 pages per month without any problems. This is a great printer for what I need without all the fancy bells ans whistles.
Pros: Excellent B&W and color printing, efficient speed
Cons: Minor problem with networking on windows with my current set-up, but used an alternate route that works the same way.
Summary: Overall we have been very satisfied with this printer. We initially bought this printer to avoid leaving an auxiliary computer turned on to host a usb laser printer to keep energy costs down. We decided that we wanted another laser and one that would let us occasionally print in color.
Pros: Text quality, Color prints, and Network capability.
Cons: Little bit slow, somewhat large, and somewhat high toner refill costs.
Summary: great for the price, if only it came with the printer cable and i didn't have to look for one, i'd have been more happy. i turned a little red in the face when i seen there wasn't one in the box. great deal GOOD GAME NEWEGG!! as always ;)
Pros: prints great, comes with toners, YES COMES WITH TONERS!, easy to install. just follow the easy instructions, tells you how to take off all those stickers\tapes it comes attached with. it's a great price as long as it doesn't break down within the time period of rma, or manufacturer exchanges/repa...
Cons: DOESN'T COME WITH THE USB\PRINTER CABLE. i was quite amused that it didn't, luckily there were extras in my place of residence. A LITTLE BIT loud when turning on, when in idle it's silent as can be. same with when printing, little loud. NO PRINTER CABLE!! (tisk tisk :)) (once again) A LITTLE HEAVY
Summary: How can you beat a commercial grade Color Laser Jet in the home!Can't be beat imho
Pros: I am so done with Inkjet printers! I have been without a home printer for quite a while, as I'm not a "hardcopy" person, however, 2 highschool aged kids = need a printer. Saw this 299 deal again on the 2600, just a steal. Set it up straight on network; DHCP reserved IP, created TCP/IP ports on th...
Cons: Toners look like they will hurt some, but reviews and usage so far suggest they last a long time. It is LARGE; had to get a strong place to park it.
