Great printer except short ink life

 

Ink show 40% life left, and we are already shaking it to get more out of it. Shortest ink life I have ever seen, and ussally OEM HP ink lasts nearly twice as long

Printer itself is fast and works well

Ink life is a joke, and not worth it due to that

HP M401dne

 

It would have been a great printer for a small workgroup had it played nicely with the network. As it is, it is useless.

Small footprint, fast, easy setup in Linux

The printer keeps changing its IP address (appears to happen when it wakes up from sleep). The only solution according to HP tech support is to use static IP address. Considering that previous HP models in this price range did not have this problem...

Buy at your own risk.

Worked well when it worked

Lasted 10 months then stopped working with intermittent errors. Quick check on the HP site for warranty status: warranty expired. Evidently the HP warranty is not from date of purchase

Pleased

 

Overall, having been using another brand for a long time, I am impressed with HP being as good as advertised. I may have been converted

Fast, sharp prints, lots of connectivity options, super solid printer

The energy saver doesn't seem to be able to be overridden, despite the settings. Once on standby, it requires being at the printer physically to get it to start. Cost-one egg

HP M401dne

 

Using mainly with my inventory and sales software (runs on SUSE Linux) Using the HP wizard from the Linux package made network printing with dynamic IP address work out of the box I have never had a simpler install. Also installed on with Windows 7...

Compact ; Toner available everywhere they sell ink ; Two side printing ; Really fast ; Network prints

Printer is great I just wish the optional second tray was under a hundred

Good selection

 

This replaces a 15 year-old Laserjet 2100. Made selection of HP as a replacement a no-brainer. Downloaded drivers from Web - didn't bother with "easy" setup on included disc.

Well built. Fast. Big selection of inexpensive after-market toner cartridges. Quick warmup from energy-saving state. Paper-sensing works correctly with optional 3rd tray

Auto-duplexer negates straight-thru paper path. (Envelopes have to be delivered to top output tray which isn't good.) Can connect to wired network or wireless network, not both at same time. Quirky software and drivers, as typical of the entire HP line

Great balance

 

This printer is one of the fastest out there--I bought it primarily for speed. However, I did not realize just how much better quality of a print it is in comparison to other "fast" printers of the same caliber. Look for reviews comparing this model to...

I have had some problems with it "waking" from sleep mode. I have fiddled with the settings with some success, but there is still some problems. I will have to take more time with the printer to figure that one out; however, I would recommend the...

Great printer

 

one star off for the software glitch to start, it's working great now.

The printer is very reasonably priced, it's fast and it's HP quality

The only issue I had was it wouldn't wake up after it went into standby mode. I chatted with HP support and they were pretty much useless. They told me to sent the printer back. I ended up fixing it by changing the EcoMode settings hitting apply and...
