Don't build them like they use to

Swim Dad, Officemax
7 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I needed to buy a buy a new printer when I purchased a new computer as my work horse Laser Jet 5 didn't have drivers for Windows 7. Easy to install and operate. Prints high quality pages quickly. However, only after having it for 15 months, its in the repair shop and the techs are having troubles fixing it. Unlike my previous printer, this one is built rather cheaply and not built to last.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, prints quick quality pages
  • Cons: Does Not Meet Expectations, pricey toner that doesn't last long

Good HP machine.

BillyJoeEb, Hewlett-Packard
10 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my ancient Laserjet 1200 which gave out a year or two after I thought it was going to last forever. This one appears to be just as good; time will tell. It certainly prints much, much better. I like the one page at a time feed. My only complaints are 1) after you punch print on the screen you also have to punch the print button on the printer (this may be a setting; if so, I couldn't find a way to change it.

Good But Sensitive

6 March 2014
  • Summary: Good printer for the price. Easy to set up. Tends to jam more than I'm used to but not to the point that I'm ready to trash it.

Not Really a Duplexing Printer

Screwylewy, Bestbuy
10 November 2013
  • Summary: It is a manual duplexer which does not work in all office environments. I upgraded to a "DN" model to get full duplexing.
  • Pros: Print quality
  • Cons: Not a true automatic duplexing printer

Special Cable Required

F. Rose, Amazon
5 November 2013
  • Summary: **Please Note: This printer can not be properly installed, and will not work as designed, without a unique USB cable attached (permanently) to the printer. One end is standard USB but the other has a small square end. Also, the description implies the printer might be wireless. It's not. It will not operate without a cable attached to it.

HP Laserjet Pro 400 M401n

Ronald A. Geoffroy, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: The instructions to install and make a wireless Laptop connection are not included with this printer. It took me three days to get it working using four different people in tech support to make it work by email printing. It does not print by wifi, contrary to what their description infers.

Be careful with setup, or you will be sorry!!

John P, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: I have a very simple office environment and have used HP laserjet printers, or equivalent, for over 25 years. When this new printer arrived, the installation was pretty straightforward. THEN, I was asked whether I wanted a Basic setup, or the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED setup that would give me higher levels of functionality, etc., that required the accompanying disc to be inserted and installed.

LCD screen improved

DbqLuthier, Hewlett-Packard
6 December 2012
  • Summary: Since we use the Ethernet connection I like the fact that the LCD screen shows the address in ready mode. This a great aid when doing setup. I setup and maintain the printers with the browser interface. We use several of these for printing A5 card stock on the factory floor. They do the job OK, but we do find the paper pickup assembly wears out twice a year. I think we ask a lot from such a small printer. Also loading the driver is easier that it used to be.

Good printer for the money

SOSICC1885, Hewlett-Packard
5 December 2012
  • Summary: Good option if you don't want to spend a lot of money. Construction is not as heavy duty as I am used to, plastic feels cheap; however, this printer was considerably cheaper!
