Editor's Choice!

HP LaserJet 9050dn


The HP LaserJet 9050dn replaces the 9000dn as the next generation in HP's line and as our new Editors' Choice for monochrome laser printers. Whether you're looking for speed, output quality, or paper-handling features, the 9050dn delivers.

To call it fast is an understatement. Output quality is among the best available for monochrome lasers. Ample paper-handling for departmental printing

Heavy-duty paper-handling capability results in a big printer, at 168 pounds. Maximum resolution is only 600 by 600 dpi, plus enhancement features

The HP LaserJet 9050dn is a heavy-duty departmental printer built around a 50-page-per-minute engine. It can print on paper up to tabloid size, and, as tested, includes a duplexer. There are also plenty of paper-handling options available to complement...

HP LaserJet 9050n laser printer


These are built like tanks. There is almost nothing that can stop them, even users refilling paper trays improperly! Awesome!

Good printer- bad firmware


We have a few of these printers. They are usually very reliable but we had 2 shipped to us with bad formatter boards and bad flash memory cards. After getting this resolved the printer runs like a champ.

HP LaserJet M9050 MFP


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.

HP LaserJet M9050 MFP


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!

HP LaserJet 9050dn Laser Printer 220v


I've been using this as a low volume printer for some time and it has never failed me. The toner lasts quite well and it would be hard to find much fault with this machine. I can't say how well it would do with heavier use but I anticipate it would...

HP LaserJet M9050 MFP


This is certainly HP's best of the best in terms of high density printing. It is a work horse, way faster than the 9000n, but it still uses the same cartridge which is excellent. The 9000 trays will also fit. The main difference is that this printer is...
