Summary: Bought this printer for our home business office and also to help with my wife's campaign for office. It isn't speedy but it really gets the job done with high quality duplex printing. Can't ask for more than that.
Summary: The HP 5M Color Laser Printer is definitely an older model printer that is also quite LARGE. The upside to this model is that parts and supplies are still quite plentiful. In addition the fact that it is still capable of use in Windows 7 does make it a relatively inexpensive way to save money over color inkjet for home or small office use.
Summary: I have been using HP's LaserJets for a while and 5M is just one of the excellent products you can ever find. Though it has been considered as a discontinued product, but the ones that I have can still be used and they work great. 5M is also very easy to maintain. Besides replacing toner catridge, I have been replacing fuser unit, fan panel, and clean inside myself. If you are looking for a cheap, durable, reliable laser printer and this is it.
Summary: These are generally very good printers for small offices or personal use. Unless the page count is extremely high, I have found they last & perform well. I purchased this for the office at my church, and expect to get a lot of very good service from it. Third-party toner cartridges can easily be found for about $20, making the cost per page less than half a cent. You will likely need to clean the rollers & paper path, as they often are neglected in that area.
Summary: I bought this HP LaserJet 5 with an extra paper tray, duplexer, and envelope feeder. The only thing I don't like is that the lower left-hand side of the envelopes get a little crinkled. The duplexer has not been used yet. This printer was purchased for the envelope feeder and its features. We do mass mailings and regular feeding of envelopes on our other printers/copier was not working. The envelope feeder feature is fantastic.
Summary: Pros: I have gotten this printer since August 2006 it works greatand looks nice. It's cheap compare to other similiar laser printer of its kind. Cons: Unfortunity, it doesn't come with cable and CD driver but if you have windows XP, it would work fine.
Summary: Der HP LaserJet 5m ist der Drucker, welchen ich bei der Arbeit am häufigsten einsetze. Mal sehen was es über dieses alte Drucker-Monster so zu berichten gibt. ;) Installation / Gebrauch Die Installation ist wohl das beste an dem Gerät. Einfach, schnell und unkompliziert. Bei uns wird der Drucker per Netzwerk angesteuert (d.h. eine voreingebaute, kleine 10MBit Netzwerkkarte steckt hinten drin), wodurch wir ihn mit etwa 10 Personen gleichzeitig nutzen.
Pros: ähm . . . er druckt : )
Cons: miese Grafiken, zerknitterte Blätter, laut, stinkig, lustige Papierstaufunktion wenn Blätter alle sind
