Summary: This is one of the greatest deals on a laser printer. I had an original HP 100 that finally died after 15 years. I fully expect this one to last just as long. Wireless setup went well (just follow HP's recommendation and use nothing longer than a 6' cable for the initial setup) I am very pleased with it.
Summary: Though I don't have the ability to do color copies with this unit, I don't really care. I only printed mostly black and white with the color copier anyway!
Pros: This printer replaced an Epson inkjet that sucked ink like no tomorrow. The replacement cartridge for this laser printer prints 5000 pages where as $$ more for four ink cartridges that lasted maybe a month before drying up from not alot of use made it cost effective. I finally reached my limit and ordered this little gem. Great price, crisp copies, wireless so the whole family can use it. It's perfect.
Summary: I have deployed three of these in small office environments. One works perfectly, but the other two loose connection to the wireless network after printing (not every time), and have to be powered down and back up numerous times each day. I've tested them on several different networks which are stable for all other devices but loose contact with this printer. Seems to be a fairly common problem. HP is of no help at all, preferring to blame the network.
Pros: A nice compact package for personal or light duty office use.
Cons: The setup is clumsy. (Does everybody really want the "Shop at HP" program on their desktop?). The wireless connection is unreliable (see below).
Cons: WIFI is a joke. I have a top of the line Linksys WIFI router wit DD WRT FW. I couls not get the WIFI to work. I have over 15 WIFI devices connected to my router. It never gets an address. HP support site will charge you only to tell you it is your router. Without the WIFI you never get an address. Without an address you cannot configure the printer. Mine shuts off and I need to turn it on everytime I need to print. Not worth paying the shipping to return it.
Summary: Never fails. I had one in Japan. Never failed. Now I have one in the US, and it too never fails. Be sure to shake your toner cartridge many times even after it starts running out of ink. You will get many more copies out of it.
Summary: so far, so good... what I don't like about this product (and others I've recently gotten from HP): is that the user manuals (if there even are any that come w/ the product) are in so many different languages that they are NOT user-friendly... you have to jump all over the manual just to figure out how to get it installed, or how to get it to work...
