Great network-capable color laser printer with duplex 23 Jan. 2009
By usna 76 - Published on
I purchased this printer earlier this week to replace an HP 2600n that had failed. The software installed without issues on four computers, which run either Windows Vista or Windows XP operating systems. No problem printing on any (or all) of the computers. Printer prints both color and B&W very quickly. Duplex printing option works great. Prints are high quality.
The only issues to date include:
1. Installation software offered either default or custom installation options. Even though I chose the custom option, the software gave me no choices for installation, and everything was installed on all four computers. I had to call customer support to then uninstall unnecessary software on three of the computers.
2. HP defaults this printer to the setting: Stop at out. This setting stops the printer from printing when a print cartridge has reached the end of its estimated life. I've found that a print cartridge has several hundred usable pages of life left when this setting is reached. You can override this setting by setting: Override out.

Never go back to Inkjet! 11 Jan. 2009
By Can - Published on
What a fantastic printer! After spending a small fortune over the past 6 years with two top-of-the-line Epson Photostylus inkjet printers, I'd had enough when my R1800 started chewing through 50% of the 6 ink cartridges it has just trying to get the nozzles cleaned....all at $14/cartridge. So I did a little research and found the CP2025dn brand-new from HP. What a joy!

I just hung it off the home router with its network interface and leave it on 24 hours a day. It goes into sleep mode (from which it only draws a couple of watts of power) yet it immediately wakes up begins printing within about 20 seconds. AND it doesn't clink and clang and make all kinds of fuss: it just prints! This is in what I would call an medium intensity home office or very intense personal use. Four people are using it, 3 from windows, 1 mac and everyone loves it. Using the HP glossy laserjet photopaper it even produces decent pics - not near what an R1800 would do BUT at a fraction of the cost, about 50x as fast, they're totally waterproof, and the quality is easily good enough for a school project, to mail pics to relatives, photobooks etc. But that's not the main thing it will be used for with prints from CVS and others only costing 10 or 15 cents for a 4x6.

Being that the inkjets seem like nothing but cash-cows for the printer manufacturers and the outrageously small number of pages that one gets out of a set of cartridges and the fact that the vast majority of printing is not for photos anyway - but day-to-day text/graphic use, laserjets seem the only way to go. From that perspective, this feels like the best money I've ever spent on a printer and I HIGHLY recommend it - you won't be sorry.

Better that printing in kinkos 17 Nov. 2008
By Alberto Cid - Published on
After spending a small fortune printing brochures in Kinko's, I got this printer. It is great. Same quality as Kinko's. Now I spend a fortune in toners, but on a FULL color page I estimate a 20% savings in this printer over kinkos, but if you pages do not have a color background, the savings are even bigger since Kinko's charges per page does not matter the amount of toner they use.

*update June 09*
I had printed enough documents to get a better estimate, My costs are ~60% to 80% lower than printing at Kinkos. Paper included.
If printing from adobe products, use the Universal PS drivers to get the colors as you see it in a calibrated monitor. The PCL5 drivers for some reason do not give me the right colors.

Forget Inkjet 17 Oct. 2009
By RenaissanceMan - Published on
Verified Purchase
When my old inkjet from 2001 wouldn't work seamlessly with Windows 7, I decided it was time to upgrade my printer.

Although I did love my inkjet for color pictures, I found that I didn't do much photoprinting but that I did do quite a bit of professional laser printing. So I decided to finally go for a color laser printer. I'm glad I did.

This HP 2025DN is a wonderful printer. The D stands for duplex (prints on both sides) and the N for network.

Amazon shipped this to me two day for free (because I'm an Amazon prime member). At 60lbs, I think my prime membership paid for itself with just this one item.

When it arrived, it was in perfect condition (both the box and the printer). I must admit, it was hard carrying this sucker up the stairs to my study. Once I got up there, I unpackaged it and put it where I wanted it and followed the easy instructions to pull out a bunch of strips from the laster cartridges. It was pretty straight forward.

Then I grabbed a ream of paper and put half of it (250 pages) into the large capacity bin which is very nice.

I plugged an ethernet plug into the printer to connect it to my home network and then plugged it it. The printer went through a self diagnostic which was pretty straight forward.

I went to one of my laptops downstairs, which is connected via wireless to my home network, and I went to control panel and chose to add a printer. The HP color printer was there. I chose ADD and put in the enclosed CD. The driver was updated and I was printing within 10 minutes of unpackaging the printer.

I must say the quality is phenomenal. My wife turned around and printed her 120 page dissertation in color in about 5 minutes and she was was ecstatic with both the quality and the speed of printing. I used the nice HP Color Laser Printer 28 lb 8 1/2 x 11 Inch Paper 2500 Sheets (20500-0). It's expensive but it's worth it.

Of note, the printer comes with toner cartridges that are only about 1/3 full - you get about 1,200 pages before you have to replace the cartridges of which there are 4 (black, magenta, cyan, yellow) and they're also expensive about $100 each but replacement cartridges yield 3,500 pages each. When you do the math, the cost for printing out of this printer is significantly less than inkjet printers so if you'd doing volume printing this is the way to go.

What I loved about this printer:
-easy setup
-network printing (I can print from any computer throughout the house)
-large capacity paper bin
-speed of printing 21 pages per minute
-print quality (wow its good)
-cost per page
-the auxilary bin for when you have one off printing
-duplex printing
-that it goes to sleep and wakes up whenever you have a print job

What I didn't like:
-It's heavy
-It's a bit loud when it's doing its self test
-The screen is small (but that almost doesn't matter, you don't use it much)

Honestly, this computer is probably overkill for a home but if you have a home business or home office, definitely consider getting this printer. It's well worth it.

Common questions:
Q: is this as good as an inkjet for color pictures?
A: In my experience, no - although it comes close

Q: Is this as good as inkjet for color business graphics?
A: This printer is better, the colors are sharper and the images are crisper

Q: Overall is this better than an Inkjet for text?
A: God Yes! Color Text and Black and White Text is amazing in this printer...far far beyond inkjet

Q: Is this better than inkjet for brochures?
A: YES! It's better. Crisper and nicer especially on brochure paper (yeah HP is in the paper business now, but HP as well as other high quality cardstock works)

Q: Does this smear like inkjet
A: No. The laser process bakes the ink onto the paper. You get a great permanent result with this color laser. no drying time needed. Paper literally comes out warm off the press.

Still Searching 17 Feb. 2009
By Sandman - Published on
Do yourself a favor and bring a laptop into a retail store and test the printer before buying. Make sure you download the driver to your laptop first. After all the glowing reviews, I thought I finally found a color laser for my small business. Duplexing and color are both important for me. And speed. I tested the 2025DN with a Macbook and it recognized it quickly. But to do duplex, you need to download the driver. For SMALL files, (less than 1GB) it works very well. VERY nice color output. But bring a hammock for larger files! I printed a 7 MB and 16MB pdf file. It was only 2 pages in length: color pictures with text. It took 4 minutes to print one page (with Duplex) and another 2 minutes to print a second copy. Yikes! Considering it comes with 128MB ram, what's the problem? It's the processor. The printer trays and components are also very flimsy. HP does have good tech help. All-in-all, for SMALL color files, this printer will work for you. Anything larger, better have a lot time on your hands.
