Great printer however it comes with such almost no ink ...
4 weeks ago
Summary: Great printer however it comes with such almost no ink in it. The black ink lasted 2weeks and we didn't even print much. Also the new ink cost WAY too much to get almost none with the printer.
Summary: I love this printer so far, the output quality is 10 times better than the old basic Samsung color laser that it replaced. It seems to fee paper really well, no issues so far. What I really like about this printer is that it comes with 6000 page ink cartridges out of the box. When you compare this to buying a cheaper printer that only has half as much ink, and then buying a full set of cartridges, you pay just as much and in the end this probably has way better hardware...
Printer was rather easy to set up and operate with my Windows8 PC

Summary: Printer has been meeting expectations based on commentary of other reviewers. It has the features I need for a very reasonable price. Those features I value most are laser-jet technology, color or B&W, and one- or two-sided printing flipped either way. Printer was rather easy to set up and operate with my Windows8 PC. My only complaint is that the kit did not include a USB cable.
Summary: GREAT but annoyingly difficult paper handling - There seems to be no way within the included software to get it switch automatically to the non-manual feed tray. Not an issue on my Macs (simple work around by creating different settings) - more complex but doable on my PC. But Total blowout in situations like ePrint which don't provide tray selections, It'll sit in "HUH" mode if no (or improper?) paper available in manual tray.
Outstanding printer, great value and NO JAMS ever!

Summary: Like many people, in the home office I started out on the cheap with simpler inkjet printers, then small LASER printers. While those others generally work, they always seemed "cheap". This printer, even though it is not that expensive, feels like a real printer. That make seem subjective, but allow me to explain. I work from home 100% of the time. I was "raised" in a corporate environment though where LASER printers were big, beefy and just worked.
Summary: This is the first enterprise printer I have ever purchased. Customer Service was really easy to use, the product selection process is well outlined online pricing was great and the product shipped immediately. The print quality is excellent and we will be using this printer hopefully for a good 10 years. I would highly recommend this printer to anyone who had high volume printing needs and didn't want to go outside to a printer.
I've owned many printer brands -- I find HP Laserjets give me the best quality prints and best bang-for-the-buck

Summary: This is a large color printer - more suitable for an office than a "home office" (due to size). It is quiet when it is not printing (but a tad on the loud side while printing). I've owned many printer brands -- I find HP Laserjets give me the best quality prints and best bang-for-the-buck.
