Hewlett-Packard LaserJet P2055x Laser Printer


The LaserJet P2055x monochrome laser printer is designed for speed and volume rather than finesse. Given its fairly low price ($499 as of May 25, 2009), it's an enticing choice for a small office or workgroup that pumps out a lot of pages....

Pretty fast; automatic duplexer included ; High standard paper capacity

Expensive toner ; Rough-looking graphics quality

Pairing high-volume capabilities with high toner costs is the kicker in this otherwise nice unit.

HP LaserJet P2055dn


Judged in a vacuum—by which I mean without looking at the price—the Hewlett-Packard HP P2055dn ($399 direct) is a terrific monochrome laser for heavy-duty personal printing or for shared printing in a home office, micro office, or small workgroup. It's...

Fast. Built-in duplexer and 300-sheet capacity are standard, with 800-sheet maximum. Ethernet connection. Small size

Below-par graphics. Relatively expensive. Relatively high running cost

The HP LaserJet P2055dn is a fast, capable monochrome laser suitable for sharing or for use as a personal printer, but it's a little pricey for what it delivers.

Solid performer, double sided a big plus and at less than $300 WOW - replaced a well used HP 4+ that was almost 20 years old.....HP Laserjet is the only way to go

None so far and I make 100's of prints per day (3 months and still going strong!)

Piece of Junk



This piece of junk broke down after only using it for about a month and a half. Worst purchase I had made this year. It is still under warranty...but it is like jumping through hoops to get it fixed

HP LaserJet P2055dn Printer


Wow, why is this unit so noisy when it prints?? Also, if you have Windows 7, don't bother with the disc that is included to set the unit up. You have to go online, search and download the drivers for Windows 7.
