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.
Pros: This is my second HP 2600N. I bought my first one years ago when the price came down to hit $300. Quiet. Reliable. Also I bought cartridges on eeebay - 4 of them for a total of $200 and they worked well.
Cons: It is not environmentally friendly to have cartridge replacement cost to be nearly as much as a brand new printer with cartridges.
Summary: You can find genuine HP carts for about sixty bucks (x4). Even if you only get 2,400 pages from a set (& you'll likely get way more than that) = 10 cents/page. Compare inkjets at roughly sixty for 2 (1x color, 1x B&W). You're lucky to get 400 pages, so per-page = about 15 cents.
Pros: Replaced my old Lexmark inkjet with this printer, and for the price, I'm very pleased with it. I researched heavily before buying, and it came down to a choice between this model and the Brother HL-4040CN. What tipped the scales for me is that the HP comes with a set of FULL-CAPACITY toner cartri...
Cons: A bit on the bulky side, and at 8 ppm it's not the zippiest machine on the block. But for home use and small workgroups it's more than enough. If you routinely print 100-page jobs, though, you might want something faster. Some folks seem to be concerned about the high cost of the toner, but read ...
