Summary: I chose this rating, not because of the printer nor the seller, but because the FedEx driver dropped it which bent the frame, broke some internal parts and the machine would not operate as it should. The seller has handled the problem with FedEx and I cannot praise them enough, as they were very helpful with this situation.
Summary: The printer came in and the first one that was sent had a motor issue, however the company Orion was really nice, had great tech support. Sent another printer out the next week. Don't expect your printer problems to be fixed immediatetly always have a backup.
Summary: This uses 5 laser cartridges. When you run out of a color, it stops. You cannot get any more life out of a cartridge by shaking to redistribute the toner. You cannot opt to print anyway. Hence, if you need copies in a hurry for a meeting and you happen to be the one using the printer when it runs out, you have to stop and insert the new cartridge right then and there. These cartridges are expensive.
Summary: The Laserjet 3700 is a tragic example of what is wrong with HP nowadays. The printer itself is fantastic. Fast, clean printing, and looks great. But the problems are fatal. 1. First and foremost, the printer drivers do not support collating documents. So you must do it manually. Even though HP knows about the issue--it is on their support site--they have not updated the printer driver in over a year and a half.

Summary: Great improvement over HP's 2500 and 3500 series. Print quality is excellent. Color output is banding free and vibrant, B & W is as good as it gets. Postscript, expandable memory and not being host based are all good things. Macintosh compatibility is excellent in OS X. Printer is very acceptable in terms of noise. Its fast enough for a single user who needs to get quick copy in under a minute.
Summary: Pros: - Easy to install. Expandable memory. - Print quality is excellent. - Fast and quiet for an economy color laser. - Prints excellent color photos much cheaper than inkjet. Cons: - Be ready for size shock, it's big.
Excerpt: "...the print, the ever faithful HP menu system has got a new look and is still great, you can print out config pages and menu guide pages if you havn't used one before. The 3700 takes the same network card as the 4500 so you dont have to worry about buying a new one, simple plug and play, fuser is situated at the back as usual and it easy to replace, as is the drum unit, again just inside the front door. If your going to buy this printer new i ...
Pros: light, shows how much the toner has left on the L . C . D, compact
