HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn ( Refurbished)

 

Design and features The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn is about as compact a laser printer as you'll encounter. It measures 15 inches wide, 11 inches deep (not including the input tray, which protrudes 5.5 inches from the front), and 9.5 inches tall, making...

The compact HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn is easy to set up, and offers rapid printing at an affordable price.

No cables are included, and some banding is evident in grayscale graphics.

Fast, cheap, and compact, the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn offers a winning combination of value and performance for home offices or small businesses in need of a monochrome laser printer.

HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn

 

The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn monochrome laser printer aims at small offices and home offices that prize speed. Despite its moderate price ($230 as of August 27, 2010), it delivers plenty of pep, along with good paper handling. Unfortunately, its high...

Fast ; Offers standard automatic duplexing

Expensive toner ; Unimpressive print quality for graphics

A small office or home office will like the speed and automatic duplexing, but the trade-off is pricey toner.

HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Printer

 

The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn is extraordinarily fast for the price.

Fast. High-quality text. Reasonably good paper capacity. Automatic duplexing. Ethernet connection.

Photo quality is at the low end of the range for mono lasers.

HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn

 

At 9.7 by 15.2 by 11.2 inches (HWD) and only 15.4 pounds, the P1606dn is both smaller and lighter than most inkjets. However, it's large enough to hold a 250-sheet paper tray as well as the built-in duplexer. In addition, the 10-sheet multipurpose tray...

The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn delivers fast speed, high-quality text, and reasonably good paper handling, but loses points for its graphics and photo quality.

HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Review

 

The HP LaserJet Pro monochrome laser printer is a good compact printer for offices with limited space. With automatic duplexing and a decent toner yield, this printer can handle any day-to-day printing need. While the memory is limited compared to...

Almost all Windows and Mac systems are compatible with the HP LaserJet Pro laser printer.

At 32MB, this printer has limited memory compared to others.

Though limited, this printer has enough memory to support all your employees' printing projects regardless of the operating system they are using.

Review: HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn monochrome laser printer

 

A small office or home office will like the speed and automatic duplexing, but the trade-off is pricey toner.

The LaserJet Pro P1606dn’s feature set is a definite step up from what you’d typically find in a low-end printer. It has a 250-sheet main input tray and, above that, a 10-sheet secondary tray for feeding letterhead or envelopes. The top-loading output...

HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Review and Ratings

 

Although this monochrome laser printer offers speedy, quality printing for small or home offices, buyers will want to weigh these features against its expensive toner and lack of Wi-Fi interface.

Speedy printing ; Sturdy casing ; Excellent output

High toner cost ; Flimsy plastic paper holder ; No wireless interface

Printer Review: HP LaserJet Pro 1606dn

 

The 1606dn takes about 15 by 16 inches of desk space and stands 10 inches tall. The plastic lid that covers its 250-sheet main paper tray serves as a tray for a 10-sheet input slot for envelopes or other special media. Pages exit face down atop the...
