The incredibley priced printer was a great buy with fabulous results!

Summary: This printer has gotten a bad rap, which is not deserved in my never humble opinion. This purchase was my 2nd one. The first wore out after about 10 years. The people who service this model don't like it (probably because it lasts too long). It works great and has incredible speed. My only complaint is a typical one for HP. Clearing printer jams is a huge pita!!
Summary: After my 2nd one that failed within 3 months All I will say is avoid this piece . The first one would have to be rebooted after evry print job ( found to be a craked circuit board ) the replacement is no better, Memory failed. Will not buy another HP printer.
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. I sent the printer to the shop and was told (after a $60 diagnosis charge) that the formatting board was bad.
Summary: it is no working. i did try to used it howsoever it is not working. it is not working with my software ...........................................................................................................
The best printer I've ever owned, and I've owned many.

Summary: The bad reviews on this printer baffle me. I am an I.T. professional of over 20 years. Over the years I have installed and maintained hundreds of printers for our clients so I have real hands-on experience with printers from all makers. I chose this one for our small office with two network users. This printer has been running flawlessly for the last five years. The print quality remains outstanding.
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. It still came down with the dreaded formatter board problems. After 9 months of light use it wouldn't boot up.
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. It seemed more cheaply constructed than my old HP printer (which I had to toss because it didn't have a USB port, that's how old it was... it still worked fine). I just figured the plastic is how printers are made these days.
