HP LaserJet P4014n

 

The HP LaserJet P4014n monochrome laser printer is tough and expandable enough to handle the needs of a high-volume office. But it's also expensive ($899 as of May 25, 2009) and demands premium prices for additional components. And on top of that, its...

Fast; stellar design and ease of use ; Highly expandable

Expensive; graphics output is subpar ; Graphics output is subpar

Buy this printer for powerhouse text printing on the cheap; its graphics quality is barely decent.

HP LaserJet P4014n Printer

 

Built around a 45-page-per-minute engine, the HP LaserJet P4014n Printer spits out pages at an impressive clip.

Fast. Reasonably heavy-duty paper handling, with default 600-sheet input capacity and 3,100-sheet maximum.

Slightly subpar text for a mono laser.

HP LaserJet P4014n

 

If you work in a small to medium-size office or workgroup and need to churn out large stacks of black-and-white output on a daily basis, it's a good bet that monochrome laser printing is your technology of choice. This happens to be the category in...

With its head-turning print speed and ample paper capacity, the HP LaserJet P4014n Printer stands ready for heavy-duty printing in a small office or workgroup.

HP LaserJet P4014n Review: Speed, Economy & Performance Workgroup Printing

 

Looking for a best workgroup laser printer for the office or user group? Bright Hub reviews the HP LaserJet P4014n. As a monochrome printer the HP LaserJet P4014n is one of HP's newer offerings for small offices or workgroups. Several of HP's recent...

The HP P4014n is a strong contender for best buy for small offices or workgroups. Its running costs are excellent, in line with those of the Lexmark T650 or slightly less, although it is slightly more expensive to purchase. It is clearly built to last,...

1st laser printer

 

After a horrible experience with my last printer (same brand inkjet), this printer has been a welcome replacement. I read some good things about laser printers, so I searched for a color all in one, but couldn't find one in my price range. This doesn't...

Love it

 

I'm very pleased with this printer. I've had half a dozen inkjet printers and 1 laser printer before now, and I haven't liked any of them. The scanner isn't as good as a dedicated photo scanner, but for all but the most stringent work is adequate. The...

Works Great

 

It works great and easy to intall. The only down side (and I knew this before buying) is the price of toner, about $35 each for 4 different toner cartridges (Black, Blue, Yellow and Red).
