This printer is perfect for business checks


I bought this laser printer to work with my Quickbooks accounting system and print all of my business checks. It is working perfectly and I love the part that I can print out color spreadsheets to watch our accounting history.

Don't buy if using legal paper


I bought the extra tray hoping that I could use one of the trays for legal paper, but the drawer sticks out 2 inch in front of the printer. Very bad to have the tray sticking out of the front. You can't close the drawer all the way.

This is the finest printer I've ever owned.

HP LaserJet Pro M452NW


Great that it is wireless, saves having to plug my laptop in every time I want something printed. Colours good, printing crisp & clean and very fast.

I used my iPhone to print something & then it went offline. I had to uninstall software & then reinstall it to get it back working.
