5 out of 5 eggsGreat balance

Pros: This printer is one of the fastest out there--I bought it primarily for speed. However, I did not realize just how much better quality of a print it is in comparison to other "fast" printers of the same caliber. Look for reviews comparing this model to others. You will find that the print quality of this particular model for this caliber printer is ranked at #1.

Cons: I have had some problems with it "waking" from sleep mode. I have fiddled with the settings with some success, but there is still some problems. I will have to take more time with the printer to figure that one out; however, I would recommend the printer anyway.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat printer

Pros: The printer is very reasonably priced, it's fast and it's HP quality.

Cons: The only issue I had was it wouldn't wake up after it went into standby mode. I chatted with HP support and they were pretty much useless. They told me to sent the printer back. I ended up fixing it by changing the EcoMode settings hitting apply and changing them back.

Other Thoughts: one star off for the software glitch to start, it's working great now.

Pros: Great speed no issues.

Cons: HP Replacement Toner prices are killer

Other Thoughts: Order the cheaper replacements from Rosewill 80x will work just fine.

4 out of 5 eggsSmartInstall is kind of Dumb

Pros: Fast print time, easy network set up, duplexer, etc. It's a printer, it does what it's suppose to.

Cons: SmartInstall.
I've deployed several of these printers over the past few years, and always used the network since they were all used by a group of people.
Upon deploying one for a single user, I opted to use the USB connection as there was no additional network port and it seemed silly to buy a hub for one extra device. However, that would have been the easier path.

The stock installer has some sort of setting up period referred to as the "Smart Installer" in which the printer does not present itself to the computer as a typical printer where you can specify drivers and the like. It continuously failed at 99% (Win7x64Pro) stating that the installation had taken too long. An observation with which I wholeheartedly agree, as this was several tens of minutes after the initiation of the whole process.

I eventually discovered that using HPs Universal Driver system allowed me to install it in a more traditional manner, but the whole experience left me disheartened.

Other Thoughts: For what it does, it's a great device. Just be aware there are some oddities with USB installation that I wouldn't expect to see with a network deployment. Clearly this must work correctly for someone, else they wouldn't continue to distribute the software as such (at least one would hope that to be the case).

5 out of 5 eggsHP Print Perfect

Pros: Well made, prints great, exactly what I've come to expect from an HP printer! Perfect replacement for our older model HP printer, even manages to have a few more options (duplex, wireless smart phone printing, etc.) that the old one didn't have ... and it was less expensive. It even looks nice.

Cons: Doesn't print coffee...

Other Thoughts: While I may despise HP computers, I have to give credit where it's due ... HP printers are far and away the most reliable printers out there. Our company has tried them all, and HP is the only company we'll trust for printers.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Throw Away Printer

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Throw away, these are the kind of printers you don't repair. They are, as most newer things are, designed to be recycled when anything goes awry.

5 out of 5 eggsLives up to the LaserJet Heritage

Pros: First-page-out time is incredibly quick. Manual feeder works very well with envelopes. Navigation through system functions and information displayed on the LCD is really great (this is never a purchase criterion for me, but it's always a delightful surprise). Admin web interface is one of the best I've seen for a printer in this price range. Has required zero maintenance since installation. Fairly small for a 35PPM duplexing printer. Has a bloatware-free driver package option (which is becoming increasingly rare these days).

Cons: I only mention this because I feel like if I can't come up with a con for something, then I haven't really evaluated it: the manual feeder tray is a little on the flimsy side. I don't really think it's going to snap off or anything, but the paper width sliders are a little wobbly and could be easier to adjust. That being said, it's not a reason to avoid purchasing this printer at all.

Other Thoughts: Around a year ago I took a job as I.T. Coordinator for a county government agency. One thing immediately made me groan my first day in the office: almost every workstation had its own printer. Anybody who's ever worked in I.T. knows that printers are one of the biggest technological headaches in any office, and this place had tons of them. Unfortunately, the way the office was set up, most of them were actually necessary (meaning no migration to shared printers). However, the majority of these printers were junky old Lexmarks that were constantly failing in one way or another, and repairs often cost more than the value of the printer itself. Once I joined on, I started replacing these printers with the LJ Pro 400 M401DNE when they failed. LaserJet has been my laser printer line of choice for years and years, and while there have been a few models I've been less than happy with, most have been solid reliable workhorses. This model is no exception. It's everything I expect from a LaserJet-branded printer, and I'll continue buying them until I've finally tossed every Lexmark in this place out the window.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat printer great price

Pros: Very easy to set up. Found the drivers in Windows Update and didn't install any of the HP software. The IP address is clearly displayed on the machine so there is never any problem finding it. Prints fast and has a small footprint. Have it installed in a computer lab for use by students. We have 20 computers printing to it and it hasn't had any problems yet. The duplex feature works well too. Been using it for 5 months.

Cons: None yet.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Printer/Software Sucks

Pros: Fast, reliable HP quality printer as usual from HP

Cons: Installation driver package simply sucks, I downloaded the non-installer package from HP's website for a much easier install, MUCH EASIER!!

Other Thoughts: HP makes great printers, however they haven't wrote good drivers for years!
