Summary: This is my 4th or 5th home HP laser printer over the last 15 years. Great printers. This printer got very high reviews from a tech magazine. However, I have yet to get HP printers to work on a home LAN as a non-IT admin type. All I want to do is to be able to hook up my desktop and laptop to one printer, period. I have never been able to do that with any of the HP printers that support LAN connections.
Excerpt: The reason I bought the printer for work and the price was right. The other aspect was: I was looking for a laser - not an ink jet printer.The reason for the low rating is - I could not get it to work. The printer had a bad sensor for registering the paper. Initially, I thought my computer was bad - so I connected it to a second computer.I was able to get the unit to print a test page.
Summary: Duplex printing does not work properly. Second page prints upside down. I went online and found that others were having the same problem. Advice given is complicated and does not seem to solve the problem. If you want duplex printing, don't select this mode.

Summary: The only reason this was purchased was the ability to print via email. However, this printer has a "sleep" function that cannot be turned off. It has 5 setting from "1 minute" to "1 hour". Once the printer goes to sleep, and emailed print job does not ever print, it just disappears into the ether. Now everyone, I know it also has an "Auto-off" feature and I've already set that to "Never". The Sleep option is separate from the Auto-off.
Summary: I bought this printer as a replacement for my HP 1320dn which finally started giving me trouble. This printer is way to expensive to be used in a small office such as mine. I buy cartridges at $30 a cartridge for this machine and each cartridge will print approx 2100 sheets. My 1320 would print approx 5000 per cartridge. This printer is fast and produces good quality prints but very noisy.
Summary: Previously had an hp printer attached to my network via apple airport express. Had no problems with old printer. This printer has some auto off feature that results in not being able to print unless I unplug and replug both the airport express and the printer. A real annoyance that basically makes it a real pain every time I want to print beyond the auto off period (4 hours I think) I am no computer ignoramus, but have not found a solution.
Summary: So I have been a faithful HP printer buyer for many years. I am an IT professional who buys a large number of printers every year for my organization. For my home I wanted a small laser printer for black and white and I thought this printer was going to be the perfect fit. Boy was I wrong - first of all it ONLY ships with a mini cartridge, you are not getting a full toner cartridge on a new printer.
