Too expensive!

Jack Jones, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • 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.

If trying to print wireless, it is a real pain

Nomas "Tomas", Amazon

  • 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.

It Prints - but that is it

Paul Shenenberger, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • 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.

Not as advertised

Christopher Duby "cduby15", Amazon
15 October 2013
  • Summary: Two central complaints: I bought it for duplex printing. It does NOT work with Mac OS. I've spend hours trying to figure it out. No luck. Online support is inaccurate. Second, it goes into power saving mode within minutes, so you need to constantly turns it on. Doesn't sound like much, but if you print something and then get stuck on another task, you can forget you printed something.

fair

Ken Muse "muse344", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for the HP name, meaning great engineering and reliability, and so forth. The set-up was amazingly easy. But, one of the features most important to me, duplex printing (prints on both sides of the paper), didn't work after a few days. Every time I try it, the paper jams in the machine.

Great printer crippled by terrible software.

doubled822, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • Summary: My organization ordered about 6 of these printers for loan officers. First, let it be known that these are NOT corporate-friendly printers. It was a huge task to get around HP's "dumbed down" driver installation process to get these printers to work with a server. It is difficult to get the option to just install the driver, and not the other junk that HP insists you install. Also, these printers EAT through ink.

Giving Up on HP

Fast Writer, Staples
28 February 2013
  • Excerpt: This printer has been a headache from the beginning. Most of the time it thinks it's disconnected. It may work better with a non-Mac.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Durable construction, Fast Print Time, Sharp detail
  • Cons: Hard Setup, Hard To use, Unreliable

Cheaply made

Q, Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: The one I bought made a loud clunking noise each time it drew a new sheet of paper, so I sent it back during the first week, taking advantage of Amazon's generous return policy. In general, this printer appears to be cheaply made.

Great product and simple to use.

Tiff92, Hewlett-Packard
16 November 2012
  • Summary: Choosing a printer these days with all the options and features is difficult enough and throw in the fact that I have trouble making a decision and you have major stress. However, once I looked at what I needed it to do, price, features, reliability and brand. The HP Laserjet Pro P1606dn Printer was a no brainer. I received it promptly, set-up was a snap, it is quiet to operate and the quality of the print is amazing.

Great printer; funky drivers

tamtam, Hewlett-Packard
8 November 2012
  • Summary: Based on very little actual use, seems like a fine printer. However, there seem to be serious issues with either the HP drivers or their interaction with Windows XP -- issues which are not well documented on HP's website. I tried for two days to get printer to work on direct USB connection. Printer recognized, but pages would sit in queue and report 'error' -- no output (though sometimes 1 page made it through). In the end I surrendered and hooked up printer via network.
