Summary: Just want to let you know that the product we received was not the reference we bought online We did not return this item because of the emergency and the need at the office..... Sorry but you should have more care regarding our request.
Summary: Somehow my husband managed to rig this for OS X, but when we upgraded to Snow Leopard we could not get the iMac and this printer to talk to each other. When it was working it was great. Only buy this printer if you run a PC. Yes, HP has an alleged Mac driver on its website but it is completely worthless.
Summary: It woorks very well. But when I cancel it because of error, it took forever to cancel. So I can't wait anymore an I turn off and turn on gain. Sometimes I use next printer in other to finish it quickly. This is not convenient compare to other printer.
Better than Inkjet, but DOES it have the features U may WANT?

Summary: I got this printer for ninety dollars and free shipping from NewEgg. Quite a deal, so I added 2 $42 aftermarket cartridges (still free S&H). I remember when tiny personal HP Laser printers were $1000 and guess I was overwhelmed that I could have one now at an economical price. Anyway, using a solder gun to make a hole in empty cartridges they can be refilled for a few dollars now, it seems.
Don't buy if you want to network this! Decent laser quality.

Summary: Found out too late that this printer is host based. That means it has to be connected to a computer to print. You cannot use a network print server (wired or wireless). This is from HP's tech support web site.
Summary: Very severely curls papers that are heavy/thick/quality. If you use thick paper this printer will not do, as I have learned the hard way. A review in pcmag or pcworld also states this. very huge drawback. Even if you're just printing it for personal use, sheets get so curled that I have to take time to roll them up the opposite and try to get them flat.
Summary: Linux users beware. This is not a standard HP laserjet. Cups drivers aren't yet available in most distributions which means no plug and play. If you are daring (or cheap) and you get this machine, I was able to use the information on this page to get it working in Ubuntu (which should match for all Debian based distributions): [...] Update: as of 2009, this printer works out of the box with Ubuntu without driver issues for me.
