HP has "some" real work-horse printers - buy one if you can find one.

11wirt, Ebay

  • Summary: In general a very good printer (one would consider it a work-horse of the office as it does the printing of many with little too no upkeep). Try to stick with OEM toner and you'll increase the life of the printer and get better results. Firms doing re-fills have always impacted the quality of an HP printer. Toner costs more than a used printer, but that seems to be the norm anymore (buy the printer for $10 and spend thousands on toner or ink cartridges.....

  • Summary: Printer installed perfectly on my Win7 machine. However, my XP machines did not recognize it and I had a lot of trouble getting the drivers to work. It is adequate for my needs.

Pretty good workgroup printer. Good supply of maint parts available.

  • Summary: I support six of these units. Overall, they perform pretty well. Depending on how intense your usage is, you might require some add on parts such as: - more RAM - external hard drive to help with job storage and collating - IF you THINK you might need the duplexing capability, purchase the printer that INCLUDES it.

Heavy Duty Color Laser

Nuknuk, Amazon

  • Summary: We have been using this at our office as a netwrok printer for a year and a half. Mostly for documents, charts and company resumes. Pros: -The color laser printout of images is very good even on a regular copy paper. You get better results using bright white photo paper. We have not to try it on a glossy paper yet but it can. But just don't compare it with an inkjet yet. -Printing color images even for a full page is amazingly fast.

Pretty solid printer; shame about the cartidges though.

  • Summary: I've had this printer for the best part of 2 years now. It's only ever jammed on me once, and that's when I tried to put too much paper into the feeder. The only real gripe I have about this printer is the way it eats cartridges like there's no tomorrow. Cartridge prices have recently come down though, but they're still incredibly high for what's supposed to be a medium-scale printer. I usually use my brother's LaserJet upstairs if I need to print something quickly.

  • Summary: I've had this printer for a lot of time. It's really cool and really econimal because no matter the cartriges are almost empty it will print like if the cartriges were new.

Great Mac OS X printer--margins different from Win, though

ARC, Amazon

  • Summary: HP is one of the best printer manufacturers and has been for many years. Almost everything about this printer is superior to the one that came with my Mac, a Lexmark Z53. Installation was a breeze and took only about 5 minutes, including software and hardware installation. I just followed the huge, well-illustrated diagrams included in the box and had no trouble understanding what should be plugged in where. Likewise, installing the driver was simple and quick.

Super cool printer!

  • Summary: Nicely priced and very easy to install the HP deskjet 5550 is a great printer. I like that the ink cartridges are for regular color, black and a extra space for you to get really good photo quality color ink. You can pop them in and out without any hassle unlike an Espon. Also, the powersave feature allows you to keep your printer off. When you press print it automatically turns itself on! Also, after a while it turns itself off if you aren't using it. How thoughtful!
