HP Color LaserJet CM3530


Hewlett-Packard's Color LaserJet CM3530 is an extremely speedy multi-function printer in the midprice range. Graphically, it's the best printer in our roundup.

HP Colour LaserJet CM3530fs


Decent print quality, some design flaws.

ImageRET3600 half-toning quality, touch-panel controls, integrated Gigabit print server, comprehensive remote administration

Inadequate paper input capacity, touch controls can be unresponsive, direct configuration is awkward

The CM3530fs is a decent candidate for small to medium offices, offering good remote administration options and an integrated print server.

HP Color LaserJet CM3530fs Multifunction Printer


I love this printer. The overall setup was not too bad. The only two reasons why I did not rate this 5 stars across the board is that I have had recurring issues with the scanning function. I often get an error message that the network folder is...
