Not great on OS X, toner doesn’t last

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. Many features like printing to other than standard media don’t work in Photoshop or Illustrator on OS X Mavericks. Printing to a label has required me to save the document to a PDF file and print it from Preview.
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. I bought a replacement cartridge but decided to just see how long until it ran dry. 2 months later and it hasn't yet. With hundreds of pages of b/w printed since then. Now the Magenta is giving same warning.
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. HP says that Enterprise printers have a higher number of duty cycles but I could not find a Enterprise 400 M451dn at their site. Come on Amazon, you can do better than this.
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. Software is a bit intrusive, asking you if it can monitor that you are using genuine hp toner, let them mind their own business.
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. They do a good job of selling the benefits, but after some additional searching, it's easy to see that a number of people have had unintended consequences--nothing earth shattering, but annoying time wasters...
Great quality, not very fast, fake low toner panic

Summary: Print quality is superb even on pretty cheap copying paper, but if you run off 50 copies of something, you'll be drinking a lot of coffee, so if high speed is important, a different HP printer may be best. My first use of the fold-out special tray was for OHP transparencies and these printed beautifully. It has the usual exaggeration about how soon your toner will run out - I've now deducted a star for this aspect.
Summary: Cette imprimante est exactement ce que je recherchais en terme de qualité d'impression. elle semble assez economique, les cartouches sont assez pleines après 2 mois d'utilisation professionnelle. elle est équipée du RJ45 pour la connexion réseau. Ma note est seulement de 3 etoiles à cause du vendeur. Car ça fait 3 fois que je relance le vendeur Maxi-Cheap, pour qu'il me fasse une facture avec la TVA.
Summary: mais un peu bruyante comme celle que nous avons remplacé (HP 3600) notamment lorsqu'elle se remet en marche. cartouches de remplacement chères, il y en a pour plus cher que le prix de l'imprimante.
