Summary: We do our 2side newsletters on these. You can't imagine 1 page per second. I can get done with a ream of 500 sheets in less than 10 minutes. Even the Professional mid-quality takes only 3 seconds or so. 32 lb paper on Professional with these inks are a real treat and look super pro to your clients. I have pushed more envelopes and heavy card stock through this unit than I ever though would be possible.
Excerpt: This printer is amazingly fast! The quality of the print is great as well. It also seems like we are spending a lot less money on ink now that we've switched all of our printers in the office to this one. I would highly recommend this printer to anyone. It is definitely worth the price.
Summary: very disappointed with this printer for printing photos, quality really sucks when compared to laser jet prints. laser prints are about 100% better. the only thing this printer has going for it is speed, but then again who really wants speed over quality. felt my money has been wasted, great for black and white prints but not for photos, etc. guess i have to go back to a costly laser.
Summary: I purchased this unit to handle my color printing needs and I chose this unit over the HP Color Laserjet units because of the higher print volume the high capacity ink cartridges offer at the same cost as the laser toner. Before you purchase the Pro X451 or a color Laserjet, take a strong look at your actual need to print color because the ink and toner cartridges for these units cost approximately $120 each and they require 4 different cartridges (Black.Cyan, Magenta &...
Summary: HP have decided that they want to kill the laser printer by improving inkjet technology and, for the most part, they've succeeded with the HP Pro X451dn Color Printer. This printer's few minor annoyances can easily be forgiven in light of the significant cost savings it brings to the table. The X451dn takes a while to set up, and you may need two people if you're not into dead-lifting 38 pounds, but the process is not complicated.
Summary: Incredibly fast printer. I have bought many printers for my office, both laser and ink jet. This is the fastest printer I have ever seen. It prints up to 70 pages a min and does a great job printing 2 sides but not at high speed. When printing 2 sides you need to slow it down or you will end up with many pages only printed 1 side. If you want to let your employees or family print color pages until their heart is content then this is the printer for you.
Excerpt: Strike 1 - The printer we got was a lemon, got an error code after not even a day of use and when calling HP support they told us that a new printer should not get that error code and that we needed to send it back. Strike 2 - The small amount of time we could use it, it was a pain to try and use tray 1 for special paper or envelopes, way too many steps to get that to work, even after confirming it with HP support that it wasn't because of the error code and just that it...
Excerpt: I am a longtime color laser user (HP 3600 12+ years). What attracted this printer to me was the claim by HP of a 50% savings over color laser. I was skeptical. My old HP3600 started acting up so when I saw the x451dn on sale and I decided to try it out figuring the if I wasn't happy I'd bring it home for the kids. Its fast, much quieter, holds more paper than my old color laser. Colors seem to be more muted but its not a deal breaker.
Pros: Clean Replacement, Dries Quickly, Easy to Replace, Long Cartridge Life
Excerpt: This printer has been a wonderful purchase. Features that we are very happy with include its speed, quality of print, non-drying ink (the color cartridges in our other printer would dry out and be useless in no time unless used regularly), convenient separate envelope or small document insert door, and software that is highly compatible with all our printing needs.
Heavy duty, fast and reliable SOHO printer, but no WiFi on DN model

Summary: We are using this printer in a home office (law practice - used for letters, briefs, pleadings, accounting records, etc). As such, it sees less intense use than it would in a larger business setting, but at the same time it sees far more demanding use than a normal "home office" printer. On the whole, we are very happy with its performance.
