Summary: As luck would have it. I purchased this printer and was only able to get 40 prints from it before the internal cpu for the printer died. The repair and return policies from HP were not a satisfactory solution for the dollar amount of this purchase.
Summary: We own a silk screen printing business and demand quality and accuracy. This printer (HP LJ 5200) fits the bill. The 5200 is one fast puppy! Toner displacement is good (heavy and very black) which is great for printing both positives and negatives.
Summary: I received my HP 5200 yesterday, and with a bit of labor (It is a very heavy printer) placed it into my home office area. The printed documentation is sparse, so you'll need to browse the PDF manual located on the CD.
Summary: We've had this printer about ten weeks now in the QC department of a custom machining shop, and could not be happier with it. No problems. It arrived in a timely fashion in good shape. It's only now and again that we need to print 11 * 17.
Summary: Admittedly, I was a bit concerned about buying a refurbished large format printer for $1,000, but a new one for more than twice the cost was out of my budget. What if it couldn't take the large print job that I was about to inflict on it?
Summary: So far everything looks and works as expected. The power switch is a bit worn out, as it has no resistance when I push it to turn it 'on' or 'off' postion. The packing was very good as delivered. No damage or scratches.
