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. We've changed it to make tray 2 (the smaller one) hold the 11 * 17 and tray 3 (the large one on the bottom) hold the letter size stock. Maybe you'll want to keep in mind that you can do this.
Summary: Very surprised to set it up and discover that it ships without a toner cartridge. Not the end of the world, but it would have been nice to know... Don't know how well it works since there's no print cartridge.
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? Well, to my chagrin, the printer performed admirably considering that I went through 6 toner cartridges without aa hitch and 4 of those cartridges were of the non-OEM type which the printer accepted as legitimate HP cartridges.
Summary: Received printer, set up the unit, installed HP toner cartridge and printer drivers. All features worked with the exception of the #3 paper tray paper pick-up assembl,y when loaded with 11" X 17" paper. Every attempt to print 11 x 17 copies resulted in a "Paper Jam" message and the unit would shut down. I e-mailed PFC (seller) regarding the problem and they forwarded the e-mail to their tech support.
Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 5200 Printer: It is slower than I thought, but the quality is really good. I'm pleased with all that it does for the money we spent. I am happy to say that we had no trouble with set up and there is no jamming. It is worth the money we spent.
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. HP's offered solution was to send out a refurbished unit to replace my new unit with me paying half the cost of shipping.
