5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Got this on a black friday deal and couldn't be happier. setup was a breeze including connecting to my wireless network.

setting up the "print by email" function was also pretty easy, and now I can print from anywhere.

the printer supports airprint, so you can print from your iDevices. setup on os x and windows was also very simple.

Cons: the "apps" built in aren't that great, but i haven't used them other than day one seeing what they were all about

Other Thoughts: even though I got this cheap on a black friday deal, I'd pay full price for it. zero complaints and well worth it!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value, design and quality

Pros: Easy to configure on network, energy savings, integrated toner and drum cartridges means consistently good prints. Easy to access toners cartridges. Prints well on laser paper, photo paper and envelopes. Front loading paper tray. Low cost third party toner cartridges and toner powder are available.

Cons: Heavy machine

Other Thoughts: Unlike others, I have had no problems at all printing. All colors are in perfect registration and even photos are beautiful. Could not be happier.

5 out of 5 eggsBest printer I've ever owned.

Pros: Extremely east to configure and use. Fairly quick to print. Seems like a very low price for the quality and ease of use.

Cons: Toner is very expensive. Available apps are not very useful except for maybe niche markets.

Other Thoughts: Overall, an excellent printer indeed. It's very heavy which makes me feel like I received good quality for the money. The price is excellent, I suspect though that the manufacturer is expecting to make up the money is supplies.

3 out of 5 eggsFixed Darkness issue

Pros: The printer is very quick to start printing (about 5-10 seconds after I send the command) for a laser. Also the unit seems very sturdy. The wireless was simple to set up, but I have a great router.

Cons: There is no single sheet loader, in order to put in different paper types you must remove the normal paper and place the new type in the tray. Also, when I printed from photoshop the first few times, EVERYTHING was terribly dark. (fix below)

Other Thoughts: To get around this glitch, do this:



Regardless of what you're printing - be it a text file or a photo in Photoshop - be sure to print via the print properties dialog. Select "Properties" and select "Color". UNCLICK the "HP Easy Color" option then in "Color Themes" select the "None" option. Oddly enough, this prints the darkness level that you're expecting from the printer. Documents look good, not over-saturated with ink. Photos look good, with the proper black levels, etc.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW!

Pros: HP Jet Direct card internal, wireless and wired, HP build quality, excellent print quality, no more dried up print heads. First print color is like 10 seconds, much faster than a inkjet and paper doesnt have to dry out. With 150 dollar printers like this I will never need to go back.

Cons: Supplies are high. Rosewell makes cartridges for this printer and the are cheaper than OEM so that is a decent work around.

Other Thoughts: I am just floored at the cost of this printer for what you get. The internal jet direct card used to cost double what this printer cost. Has an internal webserver, you can plug it into your computer and run it like a ink jet printer via usb, wire it in and let everyone on the network use it as a stand alone network printer or enable the wireless and let everyone connect via the router. It is awesome!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Rate Printer for the Price Point

Pros: Arrived promptly. Setup is easy. Web Printing Available. Moderately fast print speed. Print Quality very good to excellent. Came with full Toner Cartridges which I found surprising. Works well with both my Windows' 8.1 PCs and My MacBook Air running OS X Mavericks. Power consumption about average for a Laser Printer.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a Desktop Color LaserJet Printer at a reasonable price this would fill the bill very nicely. This is not Pro equipment but works fine for Small Office/Home Office.

4 out of 5 eggsDead easy to setup on a Mac

Pros: Having the printer on Wifi is my favorite feature. I put it in the hallway upstairs. Everyone can print, nothing is tied to a specific PC.

In typical HP fashion, the packaging is awesome, and the instruction are simple and clear (and a lot of thought has been given to the initial setup process, for taking out of the box, etc)

On a Mac, it was surprisingly easy to setup.

- Add the printer to the wifi from the printer screen.
- See the printer magically appear in the list of available printers on the Mac. (system preferences, Print and Scan, Click on the + at the bottom of the printer list. The printer was listed there)
- Select the printer, get a prompt to download the driver/software from Apple software update, say yes.
- Let it install, you are done.

And in the pros box, you can't miss this printer is really inexpensive.

Cons: The color quality is not the highest/most vibrant/most faithful, and the toners are somewhat expensive. But for a "low end model", I'm really satisfied.

Other Thoughts: I was expecting a lot more hassle during the installation (granted, I have no idea how hard it is to install on Windows, so my account is very one sided)

Once in a while, the printer will turn its gears for seemingly no reason, probably just to make sure nothing ceases from staying in the same position for a long time. My wife finds it slightly weird.

There are also a crapload of features I have not explored/do not need, like Internet Printing, and "apps". I have no idea how useful those are.

Also, this printer is quite heavy. I guess it's a good thing. More metal than plastic inside. It feels pretty solid.

4 out of 5 eggsFor the price I paid... Worth it!

Pros: (+4 Stars):
Overall a good printer.
Photos are nice.
Text is really Good!
Speed is good.
Pulls paper/films/labels well, no jams yet!
Energy efficiency is good.
Easy setup with Win7.

Cons: (-1 Star):
> WiFi on printer found my network and connected, but failed to print from it. But maybe not printers fault, perhaps the routers?
> Takes a minute(or two) to start printing a large (6000wx5000hx600dpi) .bmp image file. But, who knows, it might be my system(paint program issue or RAM?) and not the printer...
> It didn't cancel prints jobs( red X button on UI ). All 5 pages kept printing after pressing X.
> Don't care much for the 'tilt' screen. It's location/position seems out of place. Printer's fault! lol :P

..anyway, why complain any more when I got it for the best price ever! .......

Other Thoughts: I didn't buy it from here (was going to)...
But then I waited for a few more days, and eventually I paid less than only $60 for it (NEW)... It was just my lucky day.
"Thank U lord" :)

Pros: Color laser, Good for small office or small work group Wireless, works with iphone, ipad, etc., web printing.

Cons: Expensive toner cartridges, the price of 4 toner cartridges you could buy a whole other printer
