Low-capacity toner cartridges ; High cost per page

HP Color LaserJet CP2025n

 

The Hewlett-Packard Color LaserJet CP2025n is a pricey color laser printer built with the small business owner or work group in mind. At $450, the CP2025n can connect to multiple computers of a wired network, and the printer produces high-quality...

Impressive print quality; fast output for color documents; high monthly duty cycle; comprehensive driver features and warranty; easy networking setup.

Slow black printing; no auto-duplexing; can't print directly from USB thumbdrive or digital camera; lacks wireless connectivity.

Although the HP CP2025n is rather slow to print black documents and is missing supplementary features such as USB-direct printing and wireless, the color laser shines in output quality, and the software holds your hand through a somewhat daunting...

HP Color LaserJet CP2025n Color Laser Printer

 

For the price, you get solid overall printing performance--albeit in a somewhat less solid-feeling package.

Inexpensive ; very good print quality ; Competent speeds

No weekend support ; Some pieces rattle and feel cheap

If your budget restricts you to a lower-cost color laser, HP's Color LaserJet CP2025n is one of the best choices currently available. While you lose some robustness, you get plenty of good print quality

Review: HP Color LaserJet CP2025dn

 

The HP Color LaserJet CP2025dn is a reasonably priced, compact color laser printer that prints high-quality documents at a fast clip, then the HP CP2025dn deserves to be on your short list.

The CP2025dn was easy to set up, though it weighs nearly 53 pounds—you may need some help lifting it. The four small printer cartridges come preinstalled. You simply remove some protective tape from each cartridge before plugging in the printer. The...

HP Color LaserJet CP2025dn

 

This veritable desktop printing press provides versatile, high-quality output (in low volumes) for small businesses.

Graphic-arts capability; automatic duplexing; superior design and build; exceptional text quality

High cost-per-page for color; no scanning capability; no Wi-Fi interface; relatively low monthly duty cycle

The CP2025dn is an excellent machine for producing or publishing a variety of presentation-quality documents that any business would be proud of. However, its relatively limited duty cycle (750 to 2,000 pages per month) and pricey color-output costs...

The HP Color LaserJet CP2025dn is a basic laser printer. It offers a few exceptional features such as the automatic duplexing feature, and it consumes only 445 watts of energy during use. We were disappointed with the size of the device and the low...

The HP Color LaserJet CP2025dn offers automatic duplexing capabilities

This laser printer lacks wireless printing features

This is a basic laser printer that lacks several advanced features that would make it a top printing device.

The HP Color LaserJet CP2025n is a laser printer that will fit nicely in any home environment. It features 600 x 600 dpi resolution, a 40,000-page monthly duty cycle and a paper tray that stores up to 250 sheets of paper. It is a little larger than...

This laser printer offers 600 x 600 dpi resolution, 128MB of installed memory and a 250-sheet paper tray

The HP Color LaserJet CP2025n lacks duplex printing features and wireless printing capabilities

Despite its large size and lack of features, it is a basic printer that's ideal for a home environment.

"Does the job. Reliable."

 

Thinking about replacing mine with the same model.

Results look good. Not prone to paper jams or other nuisance problems.

If the paper slips through the wrong way....trouble. There's a plastic panel that hand-fed paper is supposed to go on top of...if it doesn't, you can break your paper feed.

"Great Reliable Workhorse Printer for Small Business!"

 

This is a great, reliable printer for a small office, where most of the prinnting is text and not graphics.

This printer is extremely reliable. I have used it for two tax seasons, and it has printed hundreds of tax returns (many 20 pages or more) without jamming or otherwise messing up. The print is clear and clean.

It sometimes goes through a cleaning cycle in the middle of printing, which can slow you down. The color is good, but not brilliant.
