Not quite as good......
6 February 2015
Excerpt: This printer replaced an older model Color Laser Jet CP2025. Timing of output and print quality in black is about the same. The bad news...the newer model does not match the older in color print quality......lacking color depth and 'richness'.
Summary: PROS: The print quality is very good. CONS: When I purchased this printer it seemed like a good deal. Now that I have used for over a year, it becomes clear that this printer suffers from a few problems. 1. Toner cartridges don't last but also are not cheap. 2.
Summary: This printer has been installed for about 9 months and works fine. Except. About 3 months ago an alert came up that black ink was low and to order a replacement cartridge. Then a few weeks later said it was very low, less than 50 copies left.
Cons: Toner cartridge capacity pretty low. Doesn’t know, when the toner is really out, like me previous HP printer. Doesn’t play so well with OS X. Illustrator and Acrobat can’t print from the multi-purpose tray.
This is not an Enterprise 400 printer! It is a Pro 400 printer & the list prices for these HP printers are ficticious.

Summary: If you hover over the lower right hand corner of the picture you will see that is what the picture is labeled. It does not list for $637 but $499 at the HP site reduced to $350 with free shipping.
Excerpt: Great easy setup on a wired network. Just played it into my router followed the instructions had it working on 2 computers in a few minutes. Saved time set them both up at the same time.A little slow in printing but overall not a bad printer.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Great Easy Setup Working, Sharp tones & colors
Cons: Can't Set For Black Only, Default Settings Lousy, Slow Print Time
Summary: I bought this printer a week ago, and so far I think highly of it, especially the duplex printing feature. However, I am very disappointed with HPs invasive software for detecting authentic cartridges. Google "HP print cartridge authentication" to learn more.
