      Not bad but not as good as I expected

      This machine replaced an old HP Laserjet 3035 and is very similar spec wise. Overall it's not a bad machine but there are a few negatives to it. It is louder than the old one, the interface is more difficult to use than the old one, and it does not connect to our enterprise HP printer management software. Also the power draw must be significantly higher because every time it turns on to print it dims a light on the same circuit which the old one didn't. If I were to not have any experience with similar machines I might rate this a little higher. It works and it prints well but it is a let down from a similar machine that I am used to.

      This is the second time I bought this printer. The first time we had a lot of problems with it a few months after purchasing it but luckily we had bought the Geek Squad protection so we returned it. Because we use it for a business when I needed another one this one was one of the better ones they had so we bought it again. We haven't had any problem with it so far.

      Second of this unit purchased. Scans to email relatively easily - as long as you set up an SMTP relay. Fast printing, relatively fast scanning - really cool that it scans both sides WITHOUT the feeder having to refeed to scan 2nd side (2 scanners in document feeder)

      It was a great printer, but very expensize and only lasted about 7 months before problems began. It just shorted out basically. Geeksquad had to replace it. Luckily we had the extended warranty plan from BB.

      If you're looking for an MFP that handles medium to small load this is a great option for you. I have bought the M525c before the heavy workloads but this is perfect For our current needs.

      Very fast, quiet printer. Does its black and white job very well and economically. Especially like the single pass 2 sided copy feature.

      I had brother before and I decide to try HP. I like it so far. I wish it could be a little bit faster in printing and scanning.
