HP LaserJet M9040 MFP


Unreliable Cant scan through the network, fax not working at all, SNMP connection issues with toner readings. I can only print but still setting it to default A4 paper output will revert back to Letter.

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.

Just did a major maintenance on this LJ. Very reliable in the right environment. I expect another 5 years at least without any issues.

HP LaserJet M9040 MFP


I have one of these set up with about 15 people printing to it and I have not had any issues at all with this printer. This is by far one of my favorite printers for a medium sized group.

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.
