Summary: I ordered the HP LaserJet 4 from Sum Computers after reading some positive reviews about the printer. However, Sum Computers sent me a printer that does not work AT ALL. It has a paper jam problem, and after hours of research, I've concluded that the only way to fix it will be to order replacement parts and install them myself, IF I can find the correct parts for sale somewhere else. I am extremely frustrated with SUM Computers.
Great machine if you get it from a reliable vendor

Summary: I've found these machines to be workhorses. Of course they're no longer in production and you have to purchase refurbished ones now. Do NOT order from Beatronics unless you intend to throw the money away. They promise a 90 day guarantee but DO NOT RESPOND if you have a problem. Avoid Beatronics if you value service.
Summary: I have used this kind of printer for 20 years in my office. I am still using one. I thought I was getting a good buy. However, this was my only disappointing purchase so far in e-Bay. The printer does not work. It keeps on having paper jam. I lost $55.99. I will have to bring the printer to the dump. It just upset me to think about it. Will be more careful next time. Celso S.

Summary: I cannot evaluate the HP printer since it was inoperable. I have not been able to use it and thus discarded it. It was advertised as "reconditioned" but arrived in very poor condition, dirty, and with cracks in the case.I had chosen to purchase this printer, although an old model, since it has proven to be very reliable and is currently in wide use. When reconditioned it can be expected to provide at least several years of good, inexpensive service.
