Summary: Although I have only had the printer for a half day, I'm very happy with it. Seriously not difficult to connect or get it up and running. I was very surprised at how quick it prints, seems faster than 35ppm, I was even more impressed with the duplex printing, it was quick and seemed effortless. I would not rate the printer as a top not quality product, I say this as this item has the word "Pro" in its product name.
This printer is super fast and I love that it duplexes
17 July 2014
Summary: This printer is super fast and I love that it duplexes. It is only black and white but that is all I need for 95 percent of what I print. It isn't super quiet but that is ok. It is fast and starts up quickly. I would buy it again. A great workhorse for the money.
Summary: I wanted a good quality printer for home use that didn't have other features so I could rely on it for just good printing and be fairly long-lasting. My last printer was a $100 ink jet that only lasted a year, plus it had expensive color toner that I've gotten used to living without. Have owned this over six months and am pleased with it.
Summary: Good machine, duplexer works great so far, although I am not a heavy printer user any more. I purchased to replace older much bigger laser jet pro office type machine which used the old parallel interface which became a real pain. I can put this printer on the end of my desk. Time to step up in time. Lot's plastic, but they're all like that now. Fast efficient printer for me.
Summary: Got this as a replacement for a lower price HP laser printer; that lasted only a year. You get what you pay for. This is sturdy enough for a small workgroup (family) and the built-in wired networking makes it easy for everyone to connect to the printer. My wife and I are using the optional PostScript printer drivers and this printer is FAST, even when doing some graphics intensive printing. The duplex feature is very useful for us and the output is very sharp.
Pros: duplux printing network printing fast printing high print quality robust construction
Summary: You can buy a lower-end HP Laserjet with similar features for about $150. You'll spend much more money over the course of a year, however, because the cheaper Laserjets use cartridges (85A) that hold a TINY amount of toner. After going through about a cartridge a month with my cheap Laserjet, I bit the bullet and replaced it with the Pro 400 that use larger 80A or 80X cartridges. According to HP, the 85A is rated at 1,600 pages, but I never got more than about 400 pages.
