A lot of color LASER printer for the money!

the-diamondgrader, Ebay
2 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this printer to print Jewelry Appraisals and it is just fine for that job. Replacement toner cartridges are quite reasonable in price on eBay for it. The only downside to this printer is SIZE. It is huge and I need to find a printer stand with wheels for it. The dimensions are 19" wide x 18" deep x 18" tall. I do wish it had an ethernet port, but the USB port works easily with just about all computers.

"Excellent color prints"

CNET
27 January 2005
  • Pros: Easy to install. Excellent color prints. Takes 200 g paper. Single-pass technology. Most wearing parts easily accesible. HP's ImageRET works very well, th eprinter can be used as a photo printer. Telephone support (I live in Sweden) is good. Seems to be p
  • Cons: Would have been nice to be able to upgrade the memory. Find the default color settings far too rich, especially for magenta. Am experimenting with various minus-settings. Even though ImageRET works well, a proper desiciption of what it really is can't be

"Love the output"

CNET
17 February 2004
  • Pros: Speed is not an issue with me and all the output has been beautiful. Couldn't ask for a better laser printer. When you subtract the $519.00 for the included toner cartridges, you are only paying $280.00 for the printer.....a great deal!
  • Cons: It's big! I keep it on the floor underneath my desk, so it's not an issue.

Colourful Printer

  • Excerpt: "...that I had to phone HP technical support. I had to pay for the call and the warranty had just expired (what are the odds) but the patient support technician explained each step of the way how to take parts out find the piece of torn paper that had jammed and how to put it together again. The whole phone call took around 15-20 minutes. I was very impressed with the level of support, especially as the warranty had expired. My only gripe is finding ...
