Summary: We needed a high quality laser color printer for our double home office. The quality is superb, producing sharp, crisp publishable documents that make our business look as professional as the "big boys." I have no idea where this one was made, as it doesn't say, but I truly hope this printer works as long and hard as my USA made, 1998 model 4000TN (B&W), which is STILL running strong.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews and this one seemed to meet my needs for my business. Color is great, and speed is really good. Only have had for about a month, and I can't think of any issues I've had.
Summary: Very impressive printer. Setup to network was smooth. Printing speed and quality is excellent. We upgraded from HP Laser 2055dn to get color for larger jobs. Make sure you plan ahead for location and space requirements. Printer is heavy and alternative paper slot opens out to the side. Also, know that paper goes in face down. So if you're ordering checks or preprinted forms that are numbered, get them in reverse order.
Summary: This is the second 500-series LaserJet I've owned. I loved the first one, and I bought this model thinking that it had wireless networking capability. (Amazon is advertising this as having wireless connectivity.) However, this is NOT the case. Your only two options to get this printer working as it comes out of the box are direct connect with a USB cable, or a networking connection with a CAT5 cable into your wired router.
Summary: Product worked as expected for 47 days. Product Fuser has failed (error 50.02), printer is now sitting useless waiting on HP service to determine action. Completely negates the additional money spent for an enterprise level machine in a home office environment. Failure after 47 days of ownership, with under 200 pages printed, well below the rated duty cycle.
Product performs extremely well, great features, e

Summary: I am impressed with the performance of the printer and quality of construction. The printer is very user friendly, easy setup, cartridge access, paper usage and display panel information. No difficulty in installing the printer in my 1ghz network. Another important feature is the standby mode with quick print recovery. Flexibility in paper type selection was an important feature as well as double sided printing.
Summary: We've been using this printer in our home office for 6 months and it has operated perfectly flawless printing from both Mac and PC. Very happy with our purchase which replaced a Dell 3100cn that was a continuous pain to keep working properly.
Summary: This was my third HP laser and my second HP color laser. I was amazed at the increased speed and absolutely love the front paper tray that not only holds an entire ream protected from dust, but lets me know at a glance how low the paper supply is. The duplex offers options for greater flexibility and produces fast output. The side pop-out paper tray is easy to use for specialty papers.
Summary: A nice color laser printer that we use daily. Easy setup: unpack, peel off tabs, plug in and turn on, it runs a self test, I set a set a static IP and we were printing. Our daily work load would be viewed by most as moderate to light. The duplex option was a nice option. We have not had a need to change Toner cartridges yet or refilled them. The paper tray holds a full ream of paper. The print quality is very good. Would buy again.
