2 out of 5 eggsA Pain in my Setup

Pros: Once it is setup, it works great.

Cons: Install process is lengthy and doesn't work.

If you download the drivers or software package off of HP's website, you get the same result.

Finally installed using a driver offered by Windows and it has worked since.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the disk or HP's site. Physically install the device and let Windows find a driver.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little printer

Pros: This is our second P1606dn. We are a small business and use two large heavy-duty printers for most of the load. We use these two printers for individuals who need some privacy or who are located away from the main printers. Each printer probably averages 25 pages per day.

They set up perfectly well on both Mac & PC machines with no hunting around for drivers.

They handle paper well, print quickly, and are quiet enough. I don't have toner cost at my fingertips, but it's reasonable and we get a reasonable number of pages from each cartridge.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good Printer, but toner yield is not that high

Pros: AirPrint, fast, not many problems, built in NIC, uses generic cartridges fine.

Cons: low toner cartridge yeild, low toner alerts on every PC that use the printer. No Windows 2000 drivers, but I can't blame them since support has ended for that OS.

Other Thoughts: This is very good printer for low to medium printing volume. If you have a high volume printing needs the 2100 page yield on toner cartridges will probalby not be enough. The airprint is nice and one of the main reasons we got this printer. If you need to print from apple devices, there are not that many laser printers with wired NICs out there. HP printers are generally good printers and I feel that this one is no exception. We have 3 of them in the office and have not had any problems with them in about a year on one and 6 months on the other two.

1 out of 5 eggsNot for business networks

Pros: Small footprint. Not as slow as some. Works fine as an anchor for small boats.

Cons: Connections to switched networks or networks with professional firewalls are not supported by HP. Network cards frequently drop off the network and cause print jobs that are incomplete, all blank pages, or just won't run. Calls to HP support are met with the answer of, "We do not support this printer if it is plugged into a switch." and "The network cards on these printers are infallible."

Other Thoughts: We had this exact same model of printer working without any issues until it encountered a large diet coke so I am confident that the printers issues are the result of a bad network card.

5 out of 5 eggsdefinitely good for home use

Pros: we have a multi-function printer that has duplex etc but also uses a lot of black ink when doing documents (do those extra large black-only cartridges every really work?). with a college student in the household printing lots of pages I wanted to get a bottom tier laser printer that can handle 50 page print jobs quickly and with decent ink costs. after purchasing a newly released Samsung locally, I returned it within a day or two. the construction wasn't all that different but there is another key factor: drivers.
HP has been doing office printers for Windows for a long time and it shows. most of the time this thing prints extremely quickly and efficiently. we've had issues with odd docs/pdfs from time to time but most of those were user issues. the drivers aren't perfect, but are better than any others I've used.
setup is quick. it sits happily on my home network. if you browse the IP of the printer there is a "smart install" tab which will allow you to download and install the drivers from the printer itself. handy for the kids laptops.
ink use has been pretty good. since we have one heavy user with classes changing from semester to semester we couldn't predict the usage like an office. I just keep an eye out for compatible ink and always keep one ready to slap in. the ink estimator on the printer web page is fairly accurate considering the ink used per page varies a lot.
Duplexing is very quick. The printer will sit idle for days and starts printing within seconds of sending a print job. It has had very few printer jams
We've put this printer through more than I intended (probably 5000 pages over the last couple years) and it's done very well. I've very satisfied.

Cons: the driver does have a quirk where you set it to duplex and that "falls away". iirc the solution is to set it up to duplex (and whatever else you want) and then save that as the name Default. we've had that setting drop off a couple times over a year but it's a quick fix too.
it has 3 buttons on it and no screen at all. that saves on the cost of the printer but sometimes I wish it had more than stop, go, and power. that hasn't stopped fixing problems though (bad dhcp reservation for instance). most issues are fixed by powering it back on.

Other Thoughts: for bulk printing tons of duplexed documents without pictures I don't know of a better choice. we have an MFC for color and images. it does what it does very well. NewEgg has sales from time to time on compatible ink cartridges. Some are better than others but I recommend picking up the spare catridge whenever there's a good sale. No need to keep two spares since they do age and you can get 2k pages from one and that usually lasts a few months at least :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SOHO Printer

Pros: We purchased this printer for use at home, since we frequently print B&W documents and needed to replace the ancient HP 4L that was dominating the desk. I have had zero problems with printer; it's been absolutely fantastic. Double-sided printing works famously and helps cut down on time and paper consumption.

Initial setup for was a breeze (attached it to the network directly rather than USB), and even installing the drivers on new machines for network access is easy. Just open up the web interface and you can download the driver right from there if it doesn't pick it up automatically during install. I only needed to use this feature once on an old XP machine (which has since been decommissioned) though, since the drivers were chosen automatically by both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

The toner lasts a long time. Even after a year and a half of ownership we haven't needed to change it out.

Cons: Expensive?

Other Thoughts: Would definitely purchase again.
