Summary: This is a compact and solidly preforming SOHO monochrome printer. Mine has been working in various tasks for several years. It went into temporary retirement after HP was slow to release drivers for Windows 7 (and we had upgraded a college-bound laptop to that operating system). During a recent two-household technology reset, it was a pleasant surprise to find that HP had finally updated drivers for this machine for both Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Summary: I bought this printer ages ago for assignments in college. It never broke and never decreased in performance. It is easily the best low-cost laser printer. The toner lasts for a really long time, like over a year for an average college student. I have consistently seen my colleagues using this model as well.
Summary: This thing is a beast. Prints on average 5,000 pages a year and the only thing it will jam on is my kid's fingers. To save on the cost of toner I've used off brand cartriges and the printer doesn't seem to notice. It's rare that computer hardware, it you could call it so, will last this long despite two young children and a ton of printing.
