Hewlett-Packard Color LaserJet CP3525x


If you need a speedy, accurate printer and are willing to pay a little more for it, the CP3525x is the one that should race into your agency. It earns a Reviewer's Choice for this roundup.

HP Color LaserJet CP3525n


The HP Color LaserJet CP3525n is a laser printer with many benefits. The biggest advantage to using this printer is the excellent printing quality it provides. With a high resolution of 1200 x 600dpi, your images are sharp and clear. The high monthly...

This laser printer can print both black and white and color pages at a rate of 30 pages per minute

This printer has large dimensions and weighs 72.5 lbs

An extensive feature set including high resolution, fast printing speeds and a high monthly duty cycle makes this a tough laser printer to beat.

HP Color LaserJet CP3525dn - Colour Laser Printer


A large office colour laser printer with well designed duplex print, which doesn't slow it down by much.

HP Color LaserJet CP3525dn review


This solid colour laser printer is easy to use and produces good quality business prints, though the colour print cost is a little high.

HP Color LaserJet CP3525dn


Busy small offices or medium-sized workgroups need printers that can produce good quality prints quickly. To justify the extra expense of colour, they need to produce it cheaply, so it can be used to best effect. HP's LaserJet CP3525dn is in some ways,...

Overall, this is a solid, mainstream colour laser printer for offices and workgroups. It's easy to use, produces good quality business print and offers unusually high duplex speeds. Colour page print cost is a little high, but is offset by low...

fantastic workgroup printer


Extremely fast! High quality output, quieter than i expected and the previous printer

smaller capacity tray does not hold legal size. unfortunate since the idea was to have the full ream tray hold letter and the half ream tray hold legal. pretty big design oversight if you ask me

HP Color LaserJet CP3525n Printer


I was a little nervous when I took this out of the package as it was larger than I thought it would be but after a few days of thinking I kept it and I am glad I did. My old printer was a Konica Minolta which was, well taller than this one but about...

Works well.


This unit replaced a 7-year old "high capacity" color printer that had finally worn completely out. The colors are crisp & clear and the printing speed is not noticeably slower than the machine it replaced. All in all it appears to be good value for...

Easy setup right out of the box. Memory upgrade was a snap. Works well in our office setting

Doing good


Will buy again.

I ordered 6 of these for our new dealership and they are working great! No problems so far, toner use is actually pretty good

Of the 6 one was messed up and wouldn't align / work. Had to RMA, but considering I had 6 of them its understandable and newegg was great w/ exchange
