I would buy this again


We are very happy with this printer. Fast, reliable, it's our "work-horse" printer. Toner is a bit pricey and we go through a lot, but that seems to be pretty typical these days. I'm thinking of buying another to have as our next printer . . .

Durable construction,Easy To Use,Fast Print Time,Reliable

Too much toner used


Consumer review by:

Terrible printer


Does not print barcodes that are scannable. Does not print drawings well either. Constantly replacing toner cartridges as it prints too light. Would not recommend or buy another one.

Easy To Install,Fast

Too much toner used,Unreliable

Workhorses. The 4/4000 series from HP are quite possibly the best ever made. They won't die...The newer HPs just cant measure up.

Good solid printer until it blew up it's motherboard. Granted, that was after about 200,000 pages, so we did get a lot of use out of it.
