Well built, but goes through an imaging unit faster than a set of toner! It does take a while for the first page to come out too. Hopefully replacing this one soon!

Prints rapidly and correctly. No problems with paper jams yet. Runs smoothly on our network.

Absolutely Fantastic. When trying to print color printouts with Windows 7 you must use the Postscript (v5.4) Version of the universal print driver though.

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

Purchased 2 of these for heavy duty printing. Work brilliantly, very impressed by the toner usage/cost.

Guter Drucker für Privat bzw. Kleine und Mittelständige Unternehmen zu teuer

Ran into this printer at a customer site last night. 7+ years old, 200000 pages printed. and still chugging.
