Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet P2055DN: Been using HP4000 printers for about the past 5 years. Starting having reliability problems and selected the HP2055dn as a replacement based on cost, duty cycle and functionality.
Summary: Overall this is a great little HP printer. I use it to do 8-1/2x11" 2up shipping labels mostly. It handles the second pass 1/2 sheets (after the first label is removed the release backing paper gets pretty curly) without a hitch... even stacked up a bit in the bottom tray.
Pros: Quick to print. Does get duplex work. Get an Extended cartridge along with the printer and it should last a very long time.
Cons: A bit noisy (1 egg ding). As usual the cartridge that ships with printer is just to get you up and running for a while. Don't plan on it lasting too long.
It's an HP Laser printer -- But not as it used to be

I ran the CD on a Win XP machine with no hiccups. (The CD may not be compatible with Win 7). Then I log onto a...
Cons: My decision to go with HP was based on my prior experience with their printers. I have had an HP LaserJet 2100 for years; it still works perfectly in its 11th year of ownership. With my new LaserJet P2055dn I did notice that the plastic housing is no longer as sturdy as in the past. In general, P...
Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet P2055DN: Purchased this to replace a HP4050 and after entering the same network settings as the old one people were printing to it before I could even look at installing drivers. Saved me half a days work changing printer drivers.
Cons: Did some odd things before I downloaded the newest driver and updated the firmware. Does not handle envelopes very well, but I have personally not used any that did so I will not hold that against it.
