Summary: I run a design business and got this printer because of two things I was told it supported: duplex printing and heavy stock. I was advised by an HP sales representative to get the 3800dn... After spending about 9 hours in a week and a half on the phone with them trying to figure out why two streaks show on my page (when printing on manual feed with 43lb paper), they tell me that there's nothing they can do about it and that an idea would be to post it in eBay.
Summary: I had constant problems with this printer, and then it died and was unrepairable after less than two years of extremely light home office use. I only changed the black ink cartridge once and never changed the color cartridges - that's how little I used it. Yet I had constant problems with jammed paper and streaky ink smudges, and printing on any size other than 8.5x11 was a gigantic hassle.
Summary: I have a medical office and Labcorp installed this printer in my lab. It is connected to their central lab via phone line and prints color path histology reports and lab chemistry results. I hate this thing and would throw it out the window if I could! It jams constantly, the color rendition is off, it periodically shreds one long edge of paper, and dog-ears the short end.
Summary: My requirements for a color printer were: excellent quality of text, multi media support, custom paper sizes. This only does the last good (I'm able to print 3.5x5 postcards to 8.5x14 legal). Got this printer in Jan 06, and am very disappointed with it. (it's May 06 now). If you want to use cardstock paper (80C/216 g/m2), you need to feed one sheet at a time in the manual tray, otherwise it'll jam. The color registration is off.
Summary: Pros: Excellent print quality. Works reliably except for fuser. Fast. Power savings mode uses only 5 watts. Cons: This printer is not supported for Windows 7, 64 bit. The print cartridges count the number of copies printed and are empty after 6000 copies. Print cartridge prices were raised when new printer models were released. The fuser needed replacement.
Summary: Avevo necessità di scegliere una stampante laser a colori per l'ufficio e la mia scelta è caduta proprio su questo modello di HP. Diciamo innanzitutto che le dimensioni sono importanti e la stampante occupa un sacco di spazio per via dei toner di diversi colori che devono risiedono all'interno della stessa.
Pros: Buona qualità di stampa
Cons: Ingombrante e qualche problema di funzionamento
