Summary: About a year ago I purchased the HP3005dn (refurbished) from Amazon.Com. When I received the printer there wasn't a power cord in the box. I contacted them via email and one was promptly sent out. However, I was never able to get the printer to work.
Summary: I didn't buy my P3005dn from Amazon, but was just looking at this old listing and wanted to share. As others have mentioned, these printers have had problem after problem. While this was a more expensive 'business class' printer, I bought mine for light use at home.
Excerpt: Today, I am going to talk about HP 3005, it is a black and white laser printer that is convincing in the price and the performance, at least as far as for my small business . The printer is square, held very bulky and in a typical light gray …
Summary: This printer worked great for a year, then began having one problem after another. All were expensive fixes too. As of today, it is on the blink (yet) again. Will not buy another, and will not buy from HP again. A lemon if ever there were one.
Summary: Before I bought this printer, I had a similar one (an HP2420) that began to mal-function after using it for about a year. I thought it was just a "bad egg among a bunch", so I bought another one: this is a HP P3005.
Summary: I have used HP printers at home and at my workplaces for 20 years or more. Always found them to be rock-solid, consistent performers, even under very heavy use and rough conditions. I bought the P3005 about a year ago.
