Pros: Has a lot of advanced state of the art features. SATA 6Gbps, USB3, various display interfaces
Cons: It runs Win7 only. Don't try any other OS; drivers exist for Win7 only.
Other Thoughts: Like the small size. Am looking for a replacement of our company's mid-tower computers; something that could fit behind the monitors and not on the floor. However we will be running WinXP for at least several more years. That's just reality. Have been unable to install WinXP. Thought I would try a couple of other OS's for fun. Win Server 2012=NO, CentOS=NO. Drivers just don't exist. I just wish Intel would have notes on their website in VERY LARGE PRINT saying that you shouldn't even try other OS's. They imply that XP might work. They mention USB3 not supported in XP, but even disabling it in the BIOS, the XP install disk is BSOD.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: buggy; cli is awful; doesn't support DHCP as a client.
Other Thoughts: Do not use this as an Access Point. It was not designed to be regardless of what Engenius' literature states. The GUI is extremely buggy. The documentation does not match the screens. It's unusable. Thrown away.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: nice little printer so far. great for a home printer.
Cons: Drivers won't install on Windows Server 2003 that is also a domain controller.
Toner cartridge pricing is outrageous. Toner cost is $0.02/page. At my office our larger printers cost $0.002/page.
Other Thoughts: At the beginning of the install of the most current drivers downloaded from HP's website an error message was presented which said that the server didn't meet the minimum requirements for the driver, specifically the server was a domain controller. Interesting. All of my other 25+ printers install and run fine on that server, just not the P2055dn.
You can hack around the extracted subdirectory to find .inf files to manually install the driver.
