I give it two stars since it did produce decent printouts in color at a pretty fast pace when I needed it

Summary: Bought one of these in late 2011, it's junk now. Only saw light use and now it won't feed sheets. Just clicks and gives an error that means it needs parts replaced. I never even used up the original toner it came with and now I'm stuck with a whole set of NEW cartridges that I'll have to trash as...
Summary: When I first got this printer it worked great. I had a HP black and white laser and it worked flawlessly for many years. When the color toner cartridges where about out on the CP1525 the printer started to print blue pages when it was set to color. I have installed new color cartridges.
Summary: I have had my CP1525nw Color Printer for just over 2 years. It printed hundreds of sheets with just the toner cartridges that came with it. That was all good. The quality of the prints was picture perfect. I printed photos of the family and they looked better than photos from the shop.
color printing is slow - it cannot print an envelop without jamming

Summary: It's stunning and disappointing that a company with as many great laser printers as HP has designed released a color laser printer that absolutely cannot print a business envelop without jamming. This is completely unprofessional. However, in its favor, the color printing is good..
Summary: Print quality is good, but how much is that worth when the printer only prints 10% of the time. The other 90% the printer goes offline. Takes forever to get him online again, after multiple restarts and changing settings, after an hour of fiddling you may get lucky and get the printer going again.
Bad Label/Envelope Printing, Slow, Finicky With Macs
A. Peltzer, Amazon
16 August 2013
Summary: I was hoping to use this printer as an all 'rounder - all purpose printing, printing letters on letterhead, printing envelopes and labels, air printing from an iPad, etc. I use it on a mixed network of Macs and PCs, but the most complex printing is from a Mac.
Summary: This printer is constantly either re-calibrating or it claims to be jammed when it's not. If you use this printer for the occasional print job it might be o.k. If you want it to work when you need it to, don't buy this printer.
Toner Refills Cost More Than the Printer (and it comes with a minimal amount of "starter" toner)

Summary: This printer is a fine printer. Works great on my network with macs iPhones, ipads all printing to it. What is not fine is the paltry amount of toner they include in the printer and the ridiculous cost of replacement cartridges.
good printer for the price, but ink toner will end up costing you

Summary: I bought this to use as a workhorse for black and white printing. The printing is great. The printer is very slow. It does "self clean" constantly, which is good, i guess, but it only slows down the process.
