Customer Review

on 19 November 2011
This product was delivered within 24 hours and performs really well. The price was astonishingly reasonable for a fast 1200dpi network laser printer with a duplex printing capability. Setting up was a breeze on Mac OS X Tiger or Leopard. But to achieve the price there have been some compromises: the display is extremely basic (though adequate for normal use), and the toner cartridge provided has a very limited capacity of around 1000 pages compared with 4000 or so for the recommended HP part number. The surprise was that, though the toner cartridge is supplied with the machine by HP, when setting up the machine using the web browser interface, it was not recognised as an authorised HP component in the printer configuration pages. Duplex printing works well and is easily set up from the Layout option in the Mac OS X print dialog box. Again, no doubt in order to build the device to the price, the machine feels flimsier than one might expect of an HP product, but is plenty robust enough for home/home office use. Postscript, or a Postscript emulator would be an unrealistic expectation at this price point, but I have experienced no difficulty in printing InDesign and other graphic documents from the Mac. Duplex printing is a real bonus when printing long documents. I would have no hesitation in recommending this printer to anyone who finds inkjet printing too expensive, or needs to produce professional-looking black and white documents on a wide range of paper or card stock.
