3 out of 5 eggsGreat printer except short ink life

Pros: Printer itself is fast and works well

Cons: Ink life is a joke, and not worth it due to that

Other Thoughts: Ink show 40% life left, and we are already shaking it to get more out of it. Shortest ink life I have ever seen, and ussally OEM HP ink lasts nearly twice as long

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with dynamic network

Pros: Small footprint, fast, easy setup in Linux.

Cons: The printer keeps changing its IP address (appears to happen when it wakes up from sleep). The only solution according to HP tech support is to use static IP address. Considering that previous HP models in this price range did not have this problem this is not acceptable.

Other Thoughts: It would have been a great printer for a small workgroup had it played nicely with the network. As it is, it is useless.

2 out of 5 eggs10 Months service

Pros: Worked well when it worked

Cons: Lasted 10 months then stopped working with intermittent errors. Quick check on the HP site for warranty status: warranty expired. Evidently the HP warranty is not from date of purchase.

Other Thoughts: Buy at your own risk.

4 out of 5 eggsPleased

Pros: Fast, sharp prints, lots of connectivity options, super solid printer

Cons: The energy saver doesn't seem to be able to be overridden, despite the settings. Once on standby, it requires being at the printer physically to get it to start. Cost-one egg

Other Thoughts: Overall, having been using another brand for a long time, I am impressed with HP being as good as advertised. I may have been converted

5 out of 5 eggsHP good as I remember

Pros: Compact
Toner available everywhere they sell ink
Two side printing
Really fast
Network prints

Cons: Printer is great I just wish the optional second tray was under a hundred

Other Thoughts: Using mainly with my inventory and sales software (runs on SUSE Linux)
Using the HP wizard from the Linux package made network printing with dynamic IP address work out of the box I have never had a simpler install. Also installed on with Windows 7 with latest drivers from HP went almost as simple as the SUSE did.

Print quality is fantastic and I regularly used automatic duplex (prints two sided pages for you) on the old Samsung which is why I bought the HP 401DNE vs the cheaper HP 401 series because they don’t have auto duplex. If you’re like me and you have had that in the past you won't want to go back to manual duplex prints.

Purchased because trying to plan ahead keeping toner for my 8year old Samsung was getting annoying. I'm trying to run a small business here, I have a lot of things to keep track of and I always need to print something.
Sometimes I can't afford to wait for toner I buy online to arrive. Time for an upgrade, I needed to be able to get toner locally. This HP's toner is literally available everywhere where I live Office Depot, Stables, Target even Wal*mart.

4 out of 5 eggsGood selection

Pros: Well built. Fast. Big selection of inexpensive after-market toner cartridges. Quick warmup from energy-saving state. Paper-sensing works correctly with optional 3rd tray.

Cons: Auto-duplexer negates straight-thru paper path. (Envelopes have to be delivered to top output tray which isn't good.) Can connect to wired network or wireless network, not both at same time. Quirky software and drivers, as typical of the entire HP line.

Other Thoughts: This replaces a 15 year-old Laserjet 2100. Made selection of HP as a replacement a no-brainer. Downloaded drivers from Web - didn't bother with "easy" setup on included disc.

1 out of 5 eggsWrong printer for me

Pros: Great set up for DHCP or USB

Cons: Will not successfully hold STATIC IP address. If your network uses statice IP addresses do not waste your time with this printer

5 out of 5 eggsGreat balance

Pros: This printer is one of the fastest out there--I bought it primarily for speed. However, I did not realize just how much better quality of a print it is in comparison to other "fast" printers of the same caliber. Look for reviews comparing this model to others. You will find that the print quality of this particular model for this caliber printer is ranked at #1.

Cons: I have had some problems with it "waking" from sleep mode. I have fiddled with the settings with some success, but there is still some problems. I will have to take more time with the printer to figure that one out; however, I would recommend the printer anyway.
