Summary: Great printer for home or school use only. This model is very durable / long life components is very different new HP models not long life components. Also this model, I recommend HP laserjet 5p, and The big laserjet 5 or laserjet 4000.... Very good and durable models as 6P.
$3 and won't be burned again! By the pundits deriding this printer...

Summary: A miracle printer. A $150 HP LaserJet 4200n with $150 cartridge failed in multiple ways and wouldn't return from the dead. Got a 6P for $3, and even after replacing 2 or 3 plastic pieces won't cost near $300. I tried it the pundits way, and got burned on many occassions-the 4200n being the applicable one here. Bought a 4000N and this 6P, and am thrilled as punch. A miracle in a cute as a button case. Who cares if it doesn't have USB?
Summary: It's an old but reliable printer. I have several of these installed on my shop floor. It's a very dusty environment (autobody shop) and these printers keep working when others usually fail after about 6 months.
Great printer for making LOTS of B&W prints on a budget

Summary: This is my 3rd used 6p. They are fast and ultra reliable for printing proofs and making print adjustments to documents. The toner lasts forever and is very economical. The default connection is the old style printer cable but I have been using a USB adapter with much success.
