Fifteen years old and still kicking. STRONGLY.. BUILT LIKE A TANK!

Summary: These printers are built like tanks.. Lemme tell you why. I got this from a government contractor that was trying to make space in their office for bigger better models for their entire company back in 2006, FOR FREE. It was already 6 years old when i got it and a few bazillion pages thru it at that point. I went and got a new toner cartridge, a parallel to usb adapter as this was from before the USB heyday.
A real workhorse of a high speed BW printer good for hundreds of thousands of copies!

Summary: I own two 4050's and both are over ten years old and have in excess of 250,000 copies on each. Maintenance has consisted of replacing the rollers in the paper tray, now for the second time in ten years I was advised by my IT team to extend the life of these printers by using only OEM original toner cartridges by HP and I have done so religiously.
Summary: I've had nothing but problems with this printer purchased from this reseller. I have 3 other printers of the same model. Never had a problem with them so this company's refurbishing leaves much to be desired.
Summary: It's good. Only thing I got surprised, there was no toner cartdridge inside. I just opened up the box, tried little bit, it should be okay for this kind of price. I like the brand any way, i have been using another one for ten years. I would not say anything bad.
The HP 1050TN is one of the best printers for the money you can buy

Summary: I will only buy hp printers. They're dependable and inexpensive to operate. The 1050 is a workhorse. Not the fastest on the block but drop dead dependable and runs forever. I print mortgage loan documents which number 100-150 pages each, so the large duty cycle is essential. Toner cost is very reasonable. Replacement parts are easy to find. I don't think there is any other printer in its class.
