5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Easy to set up.
Print Quality is Great!
Printing from IPhones and IPads is easy to setup and works good.

Cons: The printer it self is not wireless which makes it limited on places to install it. You have to run a cable from the router to the printer.

Other Thoughts: Great printer for the money

4 out of 5 eggsEntry Office MFP

Pros: Easy setup
Easy to use
price

Cons: scanning from document feeder has a tendency to jam when scanning more than one page

Other Thoughts: Overall, a solid little performer. I have 2 of these in my office which are used primarily by single individuals as there personal desk printer. Network setup is easy with the ability to add as a shared office printer (windows setup)

5 out of 5 eggsAs described

Pros: Works great for light-medium office use. I have grown to like how HP goes about their "scan to" feature. Everything works right out the box.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I deployed one of these at a CPA office for use as a copy machine primarily. If you are making copies of a large stack of papers it isn't particularly fast. 6 months into heavy use the pickup roller on the scanner trey needed to be cleaned. It just isn't designed for heavy and continuous office use. Spend the extra 200 dollars and get a big Brother MFC.

2 out of 5 eggsThis printer is absolutely terrible.

Pros: It looks pretty nice for the price.

It printed really fast when it did print, and the quality was acceptable most of the time.

The toner was cheap.

Cons: The scanner was a terror. It took approximately forever to scan anything through the Automatic Document Feeder and it would fail roughly half of the time. Of course, the scanning software would destroy your work and force you to start over. It once took me close to 45 minutes to scan 10 or 15 sheets this way. Completely unacceptable.

The Ethernet port or NIC on the printer was extremely flakey since day one. I don't know if I got a bad model nor did I want to deal with HP's amazingly awful support to explore options, but it would be reachable and remain on the network until the moment you sent it a print job of any size. It would complete the job or even let you run another one if it was feeling generous and then become randomly unreachable until it was hard-rebooted. This made remote scanning LOTS of fun.

The fax machine never worked for me. I have one line in my apartment and wanted the printer's fax machine to share it with my phone and voicemail. Most printers let you do this. This is not an uncommon scenario. It was impossible to set this up with any permutation of the settings available to me.

For what its worth, I was able to set up faxing on my new Brother 7360N in all of ten minutes, testing included.

To top all of this off, it randomly decided to put itself in a hard reboot loop. All it would display on the screen was "No strings in RO;" this apparently meant it was due in for a firmware upgrade, but the unit kept resetting itself during the flashing procedure, so I don't think that was the cause of this.

Other Thoughts: Surprisingly, I bought several M1536DNF's for the company I work for and they all work amazingly. I don't understand what happened here, but the poor design and quality of this unit made it pure hell to use from the moment I bought it to the moment I chucked it.

Having said all of this, this printer would be *somewhat* acceptable if it were the only laser printer at this price point, but it's not. Not even close.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Printer Overall

Pros: -Print quality
-Speed, including time to print first page coming off of standby.
-Ease of use and set up
-Ethernet connectivity

Cons: -Web interface doesn't work. Entering the printer's IP into my browser brings up a page directing me to HP's site.
-Status light flashes while on standby, may be annoying to some.
-Creaky, plasticy feel but that's to be expected for the price.
-Display isn't back-lit

Other Thoughts: This printer does everything I need it to. I don't do a lot of printing by any means. Maybe 30 pages a month, so practically nothing. All I need is a printer/copier that sits quietly in the corner until I need it, and when I need it it needs to work without issues which this printer has succeeded in doing so far. I'm not sure why some folks are having issues with print quality, I've had no issues at all. The print quality is no different than any other Mono Laser I've used. Not sure of the volume of jobs these other users have though.

I did not use any of the included CD's upon setting up the printer. I plugged it into my router, gave it a static IP, and added it as a standard TCP/IP port for each computer that will be using it and everything worked out fine. The manual does talk about a web interface for the unit, which doesn't work on mine. I'm sure a firmware upgrade would fix the problem as others have had to do but so far this thing does everything I need so I'm not messing around with that. Network printing works as it should though.

The copy function works well the few times I've used it. I do have this hooked up to my phone line for the few times a year I need a fax machine but I've yet to give it a try so I'm not sure how it will do.

All in all this is a good printer. If you need a multifunction unit but don't want it to be tied to a PC, this machine is a good buy.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: HP Brand - Linux support.

Cons: Required a firmware update. Indicated that it required a firmware update with vague message "No Strings in RO".

Already sent this on to a facility with Linux only computer systems. The only way to perform a firmware update is via USB with a Windows or Mac computer.

Regardless of the firmware update's OS requirements, it is absolutely unacceptable that I was sold a printer which did not come ready for production use (will not print consistently without the firmware update).

As the customer, I should not be required to update the firmware on the product because the seller decided to rush the product to the sales floor without the software being prepared. Had the product been labeled "Firmware update required before use", I wouldn't be as upset because the fault would have rested with me. Selling a defunct product like this as a functional product is DECEPTIVE. What's going on with HP?

Other Thoughts: On top of the above, the Linux support requires the HP daemon, which is bloatware in my opinion.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Print Quality

Pros: Looks nice, I suppose

Cons: Print quality is terrible

Other Thoughts: We purchased this unit with the intention to use it as a standalone fax machine - every other printer in our organization is an HP and we have this same model in use as a scanner for our staff accountant, so when our old fax machine stopped feeding pages reliably, we purchased this one due to prior experience.

Right off the bat, we got a lot of "Comm Error" printouts when faxes would come in. The first 15 or 20 pages printed fine but then we started getting "faded" pages, where there were streaks in the print that were illegible. We tried changing toner, paper, you name it - nothing fixed the problem. We've lost hours of business time trying to sort through marginally-readable faxes. One would think that with all the functions this unit has that it would have the ability to forward an incoming fax to email - but no, we're just stuck with faded printed faxes that are essentially worthless. HP is replacing the unit under warranty, but I can't trust it at this point. I'm going to try a Brother that certainly does have email capability instead..

1 out of 5 eggsScanner Sucks!!

Pros: Printer works greate

Cons: Scanner Sucks!! If you are frequent scanner user and need them to be saved, this is not an item you want to keep. It only allow me to scan in 300dpi no less no more. And the worst part is it has so small memory that if you scan more than 4 document it holds scanning until transfer image to computer. If you scan more than 10 docu per week just dont buy this item.

Other Thoughts: I'm wasting so much time because of this crab.
