HP LaserJet 5550DN review

 

HP has a long history of producing workgroup laser printers, so we were looking forward to assessing the HP LaserJet 5550DN. Like most HP laser printers the 5550DN can be added to in a modular fashion after purchase, so if your needs change you can add...

Macworld takes a look at six of the best A3 colour laser printers. Discover which one offers the best quality for your cash.

Nice Printers. We purchased one of these new, and now it turns out to be the most economical color printer we have, and also the one with the best quality. HP has simplified the paper path making these printers easy to clean and maintain.

No complaints at all with this printer, it's such a solid worker. We got two of these printers second hand and both had done over 70,000 prints each and they're still performing flawlessly. Love them
