Summary: This printer warms up more slowly than my old Laserjet 5000 but, having warmed up, prints more than twice as fast--and much, much faster when duplexing. The duplexing technology is far superior to the old added-tray system, which jammed too often (after several thousand copies, I've had no jams in the P3005d duplexer). The image quality is excellent (better for graphics than my $9,000. Toshiba), and it has various fuser settings for different kinds of media.
Summary: This is an awesome printer! Have had it for years and it has been flawless in its performance. I had HP printers prior to this that also worked perfectly for years, some for more than a decade. This is big, and heavy. I like that because it means it has some meat to it, unlike the majority of printers today that are so light they just seem to have nothing inside.
Summary: After several attempts at purchasing less expensive home printers that were absurdly slow, loud and/or shaky, ineffective, or just didn't work at all, I finally gave in and bought this printer, which is the same HP model used at my office. I have to print 60+ page documents on a regular basis and the P3005D does so very quickly and reliably. It prints quietly, holds a large supply of blank paper, and is compact enough not to require a desk of its own.
Summary: After a year and a half of medium use this thing will power on but not boot up. After extensive searching around the internet it seems like there are problems with the formatter boards on these printers. I called HP to see if anything is being done and we were told if we want a new board it will cost $199 for the board plus installation. I've used tons of HP printers and they usually hold up but this thing is a lemon & a pile of JUNK.
Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet P3005d: I used to use this printer in the office until we replaced it. It isn't that great. It is too slow, loud, and is really flimsy... I wouldn't recommend buying this - even if price is an issue.
