Summary: This printer is great for the home. I found it to be far better than using your typical inkjet printer. Instead of replacing an inkjet printer cartridge for 50+ dollars. Mind you that ink jets produce about 200-250 pages. You can get a toner cartridge for as little as 30 dollars refurbished and you get 3000-6000 pages.
Summary: When my previous HP printer gave up the ghost, I knew I would replace it with another Laser printer from HP. The Laserjet 2300 was lighter than my other printer - great because I have to lift it up into a tight space, and with an added feature of front control buttons instead of on top. There is a menu window in the front that I haven't made use of. The biggest difference is that this printer is much louder.
Great printer for those who want quality black & white work

Summary: Oh my! Whether printing lab reports from a windows XP system or via the USB port on my Windows 98 Toshiba notebook this printer flies. The lab data is simple stuff but I usually print PageMaker & Excel files via PostScript with my notebook. This printer sucks it all down and spits it out with beautiful results. The 2300 represents a big step in print quality and speed up from my old HP 4mp. Big thumbs up.
Summary: I love this printer so much at work, I purchased one just like it for my home. It is a fast and dependable printer. Wish I would have purchased it two years ago instead of the Kodak I wasted $100.00 on.
Summary: I have been in several office environments with HP 2300 printers and those printers have always been very reliable. After a lot of years and an incredible number of pages printed, we finally had paper feed problems (things do wear out at some point). We ordered a refurbished HP2300 and it works good as new for a very low price.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace an old HP Laserjet 2100TN. The 2100TN is five years old and still runs flawlessly. Anyway, this 2300 is great. The noise level doesn't matter to me, but it seems to be about the same noise level as any other black and white laser I've owned - no better no worse. This printer is definitely very fast. I also like the ability to set so many options through the buttons on the front and to see information on the display.
