Summary: We've deployed several of these printers around my department for use by various workgroups. So far, we've had good luck with them...so much so that a few of us have bought them for home use as well. For the price, they're hard to beat. Are they heavy-duty printers that can handle large volumes of print jobs? Nope. Will you get 250K prints out of it? I seriously doubt it.
Summary: I can see this printer can be worn out if too much printing is done on a regular basis so pay attention to the usage recommendations if considering for a small office. This is a laser printer with a robust (and therefore complex) set of menu choices and driver types. It greatly helps if you are a techie type of person or have ready access to one if you are using this at home.
Pros: Have had this over 1 year now and I can say my best home printer ever. I work from home and have 3 kids in HS and College printing to this. Ink Jet printers always dry out when unused for a week or so and always when you need them most. Never once have I failed to be able to print with this HP. I have used at least 1 cartridge of generic toner from a major printer supplier website for each color without any issues. * I do perform regular maintenance*. Laser printers g...
Cons: A Built-in WIFI should have only added $20 to the cost to build so why not include it? I wish the duplex option was available from places like Newegg. Direct from Xerox it's insanely expensive (almost as much as the printer was).
Summary: Very good quality. Not the fasted or the cheapest. I had a previous model and it worked well for several years. I haven't been able to try every many color printers like these so it's very hard to compare, but it's good enough for what we use it for which is to proof print adds.
Summary: I purchased this color laser printer based on other reviewer's input and that I was fortunate enough to find it on sale ($206 out the door). :) I had difficult time setting this printer for network. For some unknown reason the printer failed to detect my network IP address. I was lucky enough to have engineer friend to help me and even so took several hours (with him doing most of diagnostic) before the printer was finally hooked to network up and running.
Pros: Prints very nice and quiet quickly even from standby or sleep. Clean bright printing. Software install quickly and doesn't seem excessive. Works with Xerox Printback app on my Android phone, I can print a pdf, pic, doc... without having to be at home.
Cons: Manual slot does suck and will not feed straight.
Summary: It is a pretty good quality printer, especially for the price. The problems with the generic toner cartridges I have never had before on other printers. I do not recommend this for office use unless it is a periodic use as the cost of the toner far out weighs the pros of this printer.
Pros: Fast, great colors, not too noisy. Great for Home printer use!
Cons: Toner goes fast in this machine. As well the generic cartridges available cause a problem with the fuser and causes the toner to not stick which does not go away easily. Ruined 2 printers with this. Not a great office color laser printer
