Pros: Solid performer, double sided a big plus and at less than $300 WOW - replaced a well used HP 4+ that was almost 20 years old.....HP Laserjet is the only way to go!

5 out of 5 eggscouldn't be happier

Pros: This is a solid, well performing printer with a small foot print. We have limited space with high needs in small law office. This printer does the job flawlessly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is outstanding! We received our order within 24 hours.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk

Pros: nothing

Cons: This piece of junk broke down after only using it for about a month and a half. Worst purchase I had made this year. It is still under warranty...but it is like jumping through hoops to get it fixed.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat more could you ask for

Pros: Solid, HP laserjet printer. Its an HP.

Cons: Expensive.....but will last for at least a decade

Other Thoughts: Did i mention its an HP. There's such a thing as earning your name. This thing does everything promised, and just works fantastic. You won't be sad.

Installs automatically on Windows 7 via USB.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid at all costs

Pros: This printer is fairly mechanically reliable, prints quickly, supports duplex printing and generally does most of what you'd expect for a small workgroups printer.

Cons: Doesn't come with a bundled USB cable. This is more annoying than it sounds.

Aside from high toner cartridge costs, this printer model has a showstopping bug.

It will not wake up from sleep mode if being used on a network. This has affected about half of the 80 printers of this model that we run at my organization. HP have simply denied there is a problem, which should disqualify them from future purchasing considerations for any serious IT dept.

Other Thoughts: These printers were not purchased through Newegg, but through a state government contract procedure. Still, I can't just stand by and let others purchase such a deeply flawed product.

1 Star for being a printer that works, but that's as far as it goes.

HP, get your act together!

3 out of 5 eggsGood small office printer

Pros: Relatively inexpensive duplexing network printer, rated for high volumes. Quick to print, good output, easy to install on Windows 7.

Cons: Difficult to unpackage - there's a lot of orange tape holding it together. Feels light and cheap. Clunky configuration menu. Default software installation includes bloatware. Difficult to install on Windows XP.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Works Well

Pros: Have had it just over a year now. Well built, works like the Energizere Bunny... it keeps on going and going and going. The first page comes out very quickly. I added some memory to help with large graphics files.
Highly recomend.
Drivers work well on Vista and Win 7. No problems.

Cons: Noisey on the first page start up page... especially in quiet office environment. Minor point

2 out of 5 eggsdrivers won't install on domain controller

Pros: nice little printer so far. great for a home printer.

Cons: Drivers won't install on Windows Server 2003 that is also a domain controller.

Toner cartridge pricing is outrageous. Toner cost is $0.02/page. At my office our larger printers cost $0.002/page.

Other Thoughts: At the beginning of the install of the most current drivers downloaded from HP's website an error message was presented which said that the server didn't meet the minimum requirements for the driver, specifically the server was a domain controller. Interesting. All of my other 25+ printers install and run fine on that server, just not the P2055dn.

You can hack around the extracted subdirectory to find .inf files to manually install the driver.

Cons: Does not include a USB cable.
