HP M401n


Not sure about those on the market right now but the OEM that came with this printer hit at least 4k pages. Really surprised me. I mostly print forms, documents and letters.

If you need a monochrome printer for small to mid size business I recommend this one. I had 3 of these in my previous office and they were still operating strong after 4 years when I left. Because of that when I opened my new office I bought 2 and when...

It wasn't free

Good small laser printer


We have 5-10 of these at various places. They are great for home office type locations and the quality is quite good. The print speed is great

Be sure to order a USB printer cable

One of my favorite HP printers!


I would recommend this printer to anyone looking for a personal printer that is extremely reliable and greatly priced

We have several of these printers and they have been nothing short of a godsend

I can't think of any cons

Good print quality, fast

Couldn't get it to work over USB. I installed it just over a year ago so I don't remember details but it just wouldn't work. I ended up having to plug it into my network and set it up on a Windows print server. Client computer is a Windows 7 32 bit.......

Great printer


Toner cartridges cost just about as much as the printer

Great printer for single office use. Prints fast and clear, network works great

I would not use this printer to share between multiple users, works great for personal laserjet

Great printer


We have deployed several of these over the past year and haven't heard anything but good things from our users. Much quieter than the P2055dn it replaced!

Quiet, quick, price

I'd stay clear of these


At least one is still working

One of my client has 5 of these printers. I had to RMA 4 of them within the first two months. Two of the replacements broke in the first week. One of the replacements for the replacement broke after 2 weeks ; Have had toner cartridges get "eaten",...

No wonder they are on sale


I have had trouble with other much more expensive HP models. With HP you either get a great printer that lasts forever or a total hunk of garbage, kind of like playing Russian roulette

When it works it works well

First one broke after a month, it started grinding the metal wheels off of the toner cartridges ; After RMA, second one would only jam after a week ; Another RMA, after another month it fails to pick up the paper

it works. it is fast for a laser that size. the software that comes with it makes it easy to setup a network connection to the printer

it wont print color (how was i supposed to know what monochrome meant) or correct my spelling
