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.

If you need to print good quality monochrome documents quickly, HP's LaserJet P2055dn laser printer is certainly up to the job. It also has some secur...

Fast printing, fantastic print quality, good security features

Web interface is sparse, IP address must be printed

The HP LaserJet P2055dn monochrome laser printer is small, fast and produces high quality documents. Costlier printers offer more extensive network features, but the LaserJet P2055dn is great value at this price.

Great Printer


I have 8 of these printers spread across my tax prep stores (Liberty). They are work-horses and have perform flawlessly for the last 2 years.

Consumer review by:



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!)
