Conclusion: Reliable experts -- and hundreds of owners -- highly recommend the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn as a great black-and-white laser printer for personal or small-office use. It's fast and sharp, with an Ethernet connection and a duplexer. However, durability and operating costs are question marks.
Excerpt: Although this monochrome laser printer offers speedy, quality printing for small or home offices, buyers will want to weigh these features against its expensive toner and lack of Wi-Fi interface.
Conclusion: The 1606dn takes about 15 by 16 inches of desk space and stands 10 inches tall. The plastic lid that covers its 250-sheet main paper tray serves as a tray for a 10-sheet input slot for envelopes or other special media. Pages exit face down atop the printer.
Excerpt: This compact mono laser is aimed at small businesses, but home users will also find it has a reasonable set of features for the money. There's an automatic duplexer for two-sided printing, and an Ethernet port.
