Summary: This is a good printer, regardless of the other posts. If you buy something with moving parts and assum it will work for you WITHOUT DOING ANY LEG WORK, the joke is on you! And now e Who looks like an ass.
Summary: Ok, for the price, this can't be beat for a small office. However, some caveats. First, it is pretty noisy, not "I can't hear myself think" kind of noisy, but if it sits next to someone all day and gets heavily used, they will find it annoying.
Summary: I bought this unit over two years ago (2006) and was very disappointed when HP took until March 2008 to come up with their first (and so far only) driver for Leopard (OS X 10.5). Even now some parts are missing like software for the envelope-printing widget.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Xerox. This is much slower, much louder and doesn't print as well. It has lasted longer than the Xerox did so there is a plus, print costs are a little higher. This machine is ideal for a back room that is not occupied because it is loud.
Summary: We have five people in our office, all run Windows XP, one runs a Vista machine too. On average, once every two weeks we have to reload the software on our PCs to make the Scan To function work. Occasionally we lose the ability to print, and have to reload the software for that too.
Summary: I was very dissapointed with this printer. The performance was not what I expected, I would say it was sub standard. One thing that bothered me the most about this printer was that it was really really LOUD, it woke up my sleeping baby in a different room.
Summary: [...] Installation: (Easy) The first thing you should do is insert the installation CD. It will provide very good (explicit) installation instructions. Use the active guide. You can slide the bar back and forth to help you follow the instructions.
Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2820: This printer has really impressed me. [...]was easy to set up and install, had even better costumer service than I expected and hasn’t had a problem in a 4 months! I’m a heavy duty user and expect a lot out of my printer and scanner.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Print Quality, Reliable
Summary: I don't have lots of experience with this printer, but I am trying to get it to work with a new iMac using OS 10.5.2. What a nightmare. The HP software is rubbish. I can get OS X to print using the built-in printer control, but any other operations, like scanning, are intermittent at best.
Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2820: Honestly, this is a noisy printer, and I'd like one that maybe prints a bit faster on the color graphics pages, but that is about it on the negative side. HP printers always tend to be loud, but they are also durable, dependable and they give a good quality product.
Pros: Durable Construction, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Reliable
