Summary: This is the second one of these printers I have had. The first one lasted 13 years and probably could have been fixed; however, I found a good deal on Ebay and thought I would get this one. They are a hard-working, inexpensive to use printer for a moderate to large office. They still have parallel capabilities which I needed at one time. We use this in a network without any problems. Easy to set-up, and holds alot of paper. Very good product for the money.
Summary: Got this replacement printer for my Accountant, she is used to a particular one and figured it would be simpler for her to just replace it with the exact model. Just a word of caution, if you buy a used one, best to reset all defaults then go through each menu matching the settings with your old one, it will take out a lot of headaches when installing it...
Summary: I purchased this as a replacement for the exact same printer I'd owned for 8 years and printed over 164,000 pages on before it broke.... Its and excellent printer and remanufactured cartridges are very economical. Most places state it isn't Windows 7 compaible but Windows 7 immediately installed generic drivers when it was connected via the USB.
Summary: The printer is a very nice printer and gets the job done. Simple jobs such as printing reports or making copies is done with a breeze with this machine. I've owned and used this same printer in the past and that particular printer lasted a good number of years before it started showing major wear and tear. It worked so well that I purchased the same printer used and have not had any major problems.
Summary: HP 2300 Printer These printers are the work horses we depend on daily they just keep printing, We have had 3 units they will print all day, just like timex they keep on ticking, I bought some spare printers on e-bay just incase but have not had to use them yet. The toner is very in-expensive about $20 most of the time. We get an avrage of 6,500 pages out of a cartridge. All said and done we can print for 1 cent a page concerding we are all solar in the middle of Maine.
Summary: This is an excellent printer. I have found most HP printers to be excellent. I came her to Ebay for a doublesided printer. I find this one easy to use and it performs excellently. I currently have a 120 page job in the works, I hope to send over later.
