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.
Summary: The HP 2300n is a discontinued, yet widely used "office" printer. The "n" is for network. I wired it to my wireless router and am now able to print from just about anywhere in the house. I'm still learning to set it up. The original printing was a bit light, yet from some programs, the print is clear and bold. Probably the font or driver. I just have some playing to do to get working right. The printing speed is way cool 3-4 seconds a page.
Summary: When it comes to Laserjet printers, I have always used hp because of the straight thu paper path. Got the 2300 series with duplex and 48MB of memory and what a differance coming from the 2100M which was very slow because of the 8MB memory. I saw much faster prints but the gray scale was not as sharp as the 2100 series, maybe it's the toner's fault with the so called PrintSmart technology build into the cartridge by which I'm not impressed to date.
