1 out of 5 eggsToner Is a Joke

Pros: Inexpensive Printer

Cons: Toner Price, toner is a joke for this. Spend an extra $40 and just get a new printer instead of new (HP) toner.

Other Thoughts: Nope, refurb, refilled, re-manufactured toner is not an option.

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied

Pros: Fast, easy setup.
Predictable size/footprint (no crazy trays or feeders).
Quiet.
Toner easy to access/replace.
Plugged in ethernet and was printing in minutes.

Cons: Takes 4 expensive toner cartridges - 1 black and 3 color. Since it's HP, I know it comes with annoying starter cartridges. If I were to get all 4 full capacity replacement cartridges from HP, it would cost me more than the printer!

Wireless setup was confusing at first (granted I didn't bother to read a manual first). In the firmware I only found the option to connect via WPS (which I don't use on my router). Fortunately, I had already planned to hard wire the printer, but would have been really annoyed to have been counting on wireless.
Turns out you can connect manually to your wireless network by first hardwiring via ethernet and then accessing the devices web services to configure the SSID, etc. Kind of a hassle if you didn't want to worry about ethernet.

Other Thoughts: After being disappointed with every inkjet I've ever owned (and I've tried all the big brands) I was ready to give up on owning a personal printer. One exception was an old prosumer B&W HP laser printer I inherited from a school that worked great, but the drivers and parallel port were obsolete.

My wife needed a color printer to do project for her business on, as well as printing crafts for the kids. I also had the occasional documents to print for work. I didn't want to worry about changing cartridges all the time, dealing with bad ink, paper jams, feeding trays, noisy operation, etc. anymore!

I've been in corporate for over 10 years and I've noticed how reliable, say what you will, the office printers are for the beating they take. Combined with the good experience I had with that old B&W laser I had years back, I resolved never to buy a P#S inkjet again. I'm thrilled with my new HP color laser printer, and glad to see it operating autonomously on my home network.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good color printer for price

Pros: Very easy setup, built in wireless, wired network capibility

Cons: Pretty heavy, but not like I am going to be carrying it around printing stuff out. Would be really nice if it had a 500 sheet paper trey. Comes with 'introductory toner cartredges' - good for something like 50 sheets or so. Bummer...Purchased the referb toner from newegg - win on price as compaired to the HP branded one's.

Other Thoughts: I dont know why people have problems with setting this printer up - took me like 10 minutes. Oh wait - they were used to Apple products - proves you have to be smarter than the average Apple to set up a PC - lol.

Had to purchase the printer from another store, but ordered the referb cartredges from newegg. Overall its a really good printer, little on the slow side but who cares - its faster than the HP LJ 4P it replaced.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat home printer

Pros: Looks good. Colors pretty accurate. Can print from iThings, Mac, PCs, anything on the network, really. One cord (power) connection for the printer.

Cons: Somewhat slow. But I expected that from the specs, so it's no surprise.

Other Thoughts: If HP wants to get back to profitability, they need to make more great printers like this and dump the dying PC business.

2 out of 5 eggsTime Waster

Pros: Good quality print on all media

Cons: User hostile firmware, time waster, poor customer support

Other Thoughts: I got an HP CP1518 (I think) to replace an 18 year old Apple Laserwriter Pro (B&W) and immediately had problems. Ethernet installation never worked and HP support (rude) told me to forget about it and use it via USB (or buy another one). I gave up on HP support and connected via USB. About a year later this printer died when I needed it badly. Online comments suggested this error required a return to the factory. HP CP1525 was on sale locally so I bought one as a quick replacement, expecting the worst. I was not disappointed. As with the CP1518, it does beautiful prints on all media, but the single sheet feed is a nightmare of waiting for Cleaning, Calibration and Initialization cycles to complete between sheets (1-3 minutes per cycle). It can literally take 30-40 minutes or more to print 6 envelopes. Its easier to use the standard tray than the shingle sheet slot. The clowns who wrote this printer's firmware should be required to use the printer. Next time I will look at other brands.

1 out of 5 eggsStay AWAY from this awful printer!

Pros: The cons outweigh the potential of this printer (and the main reason why I bought it), but the wireless option as well as the Apple direct print feature was something I was really looking forward to use. We have several "i" devices in the house and I wanted to see how the direct print feature would work...especially for the wife as she hated having to send herself an email from her iPad and then print it out from her laptop.

Cons: Toner cartridge bay. Possibly the worst design for toner install/replacement I've ever seen in a printer. HP has got it all wrong with the pull out tray and sensors. Out of the box the printer didn't recognize half of the toners after I installed them. I reseated them dozens of times as instructed by HP's online help.

After more research apparently this printer is notorious for the toner tray having problems where the people end up having to return the printer. In my case, I would have had to pay over $50 to send the printer back to Newegg for RMA because of the shipping cost...FAIL.

So now it's sitting in its box in my garage until I can find a local repair depot to fix it.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS IMO!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat First Laser Printer

Pros: -Great quality, especially text, using laser/digital paper (at least 24# works best) the images look professional compared to inkjet.
-Save $ in the long run compared to inkjet
-Faster than my old Canon Inkjet photo printer
-Page comes out with ink dry and won't even smear with water contact.
-Can print on nicer paper than inkjet, inkjet can technically print on anything but good luck with smearing.
-same size as my old photo printer
-Airprint for my iphone and ipad, can finally print e-mails and stuff off the web!
-Wireless, can put printer anywhere
-Looks nice

Cons: -Heavy, thing weighs a ton!
-As far as I can see there is no way to get airprint to only print black and white, it doesn't matter what you set your PC to as airprint goes directly to the printer from the apple device, Apple really needs to add a color/grayscale option, so not sure if thats a negative on apple or HP.
-Can't print inkjet glossy photo quality, but I knew that before buying so again not really a true negative.
-When you do run out of ink its expensive to replace, but cost per page is MUCH less than inkjet.

Other Thoughts: I got this printer because our photo Canon printer (which did print great photos on Canon photo paper) would just suck up ink. We would literally print 50 pages (if that) over 6 months and it would say the ink was gone, I am guessing do to it drying out over time based on everything I have read. Well with that printer it required a total of 6 cartridges (3 main colors, 2 blacks, 1 gray) and that came out to $70-$75 each time! So we were spending about $150 a year to print 100 pages or so, which is insane. Laser printers are expensive to replace the toner, but it will last 500+ pages and not dry out, now with our inkjet that many pages over 5 years would cost us $750 in ink, toner is about $240 in comparison.

For those who say the color images are too dark, this is true under factory defaults, but I found a great type online: in the printer settings uncheck the HP Easy Color box, then under color profile (default RGB) change it to NONE, problem fixed, dark images gone!

4 out of 5 eggsGood printer, but has tracking dots

Pros: Good printer. Easy to set up. Acts as its own Wi-Fi "hotspot", so you don't need to actually attach the thing to your wireless network in order to print.

Cons: Not a surprise, and this is an old issue, but the thing prints microscopic yellow tracking dots whenever you print anything with color. It does not print tracking dots when you print plain black and white text. This was verified by scanning various printed pages at 1200 DPI and then zooming in, and then viewing only the blue channel to make the dots more visible. This is, of course, not unique to HP printers, as other manufacturers do this.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laser Printer for Home

Pros: Excellent print quality, Durable Build, Easy Setup, Looks Nice, LCD Display is Nice

Cons: Somewhat bulky, but nothing else. I do not use this for printing photos, so that is not an issue for me.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this printer for home use. I wanted a laser because we seldom print and I was tired of replacing dried-out inkjet cartriges.

I did a lot of research before deciding on this one. I wanted wireless so I could place this anywhere, and I did not want a very cheap laser. I like the fact that the paper tray is enclosed - it helps keep the unit sealed better, and the dust out.

We have HP's where I work - so I am familiar with the build quality of the heavy-duty business class lasers. This is not to that level of course, but it has a good build quality IMO.

The unit is somewhat bulky, but not much bigger than any other one that has an internal paper tray. Setup was easy - I have it running from two computers and it has worked great. The airprint/e-print is a neat feature but I have not used it yet (but our daughters have iPods, so it might be used).

It is plenty fast for our use - we don't need something that wakes up in seconds and spits out 30 ppm.

I would buy an
