Summary: Don't hesitate on this printer. We bought it at a very high price in 1999, and have never regretted it. It's still our house's main printing workhorse, serving Macs and PCs without problem and with high quality.
Summary: We have been using the 1200, 2100, 4000 and 4050 series printers in our office for years. Overall, we are very happy with them b/c they are work horses. The 4050 series which are now about 15 years old are more solid than the 500 series printers HP is pushing now. Our 2100 broke (our fault, not the printers) and the cost to get it fixed was slightly more than getting this refurbished one.
A venerable workhorse that keeps my printing costs low

Summary: You can't beat this one for high volume, black ink printing. I have used this printer model for over six years as an auxiliary to handle all of my non-color work. This most recently purchased replacement is reconditioned, but looks and performs like new.
Summary: I already have two Laser Jet 2100M and was having trouble with one so I just bought another because I had the cartridges already. If I would not have had the supplies I would have bought a faster printer. Overall I have had the 2100 for years and never had any trouble. They are very good and reliable printers.
