Reviews and Problems with HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401N
Showing 1-10 of 29
Find a different model number like a p2035n for robust troublefree printing. This unit is KNOWN to be a failure.

Summary: As an HP authorized reseller I suggest that nobody purchase this unit. It fails in large numbers with power supply failures, and is certainly known to be an issue by HP. Invest in a different model that comes with a 1 year on-sit warranty, or get burned..... the carry in warranty is a joke.
Summary: The printer prints great when it prints, but either the printer cable that came with the printer is defective or the wiring in the printer is defective, but the printer loses connection with the computer several times a day, which makes the printer stop printing documents.
First Time an HP Printer Didn't Work on One of Our Computers: Disappointing and Doesn't Include USB Cable!

Summary: For decades, HP printers, like the HP Laserjet 1000/1200 series and the P20xx series have set the standard for good solid home-office and small office monochrome laser printing. I still have the Laserjet P2050 which works wonderfully and is compatible with high capacity cartridges.
Summary: I purchased this printer to replace my trusty HP LaserJet 1320. I checked the specs to make sure that it would do what I wanted - in particular duplex (two sided) printing. The 400 series information say yes.
Summary: Right out of the box there is a memory error 10.0000. It relates to the inability of the printer to read the memory chip on the toner cartridge - something added most likely only to protect the ridiculous profit margins on toner cartridges.
Summary: I've been using hp printers for about 30 years. Have recommended them to all my clients, felt they were a work horse machine. Unfortunately, this machine is a nightmare. Cannot seem to find info on printing a simple envelope and jams up. I am so disappointed that I purchased this.
Summary: This printer is NOT a wireless printer, and I'm not just talking about the power cord. I have been using HP 2035dn's for quite some time now, which are an older, comparable model that were advertised as 'network' printers (but not wireless).
Summary: Just another piece of junk from HP. Stopped working all together after one year. I cant scan nor print. After FIVE HOURS trying to get this thing to work, I give up. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no help. HP has a few links to customer support...they go to pages that do not exist.
Avoid this thing unless you want major headaches down the road

Summary: Our school purchased 30 of the HP M401n printers, and for the first year and a half they worked fine. Then they all began to fail with an error "Jam In Cartridge Area," although there was no jam.
