    New workhorse for home color printing.

    My Samsung C543dn finally had an issue with one of the developers and fixing the related issues was going to cost more than I paid for the printer. So time to look for a new one. I stopped buying inkjet years ago due to printhead issues, etc., and switched to color laser, which is more expensive up front. And the M553dn is very expensive up front, especially when buying with a full set of cartridges (especially when compared to my original cost for the Samsung printer on sale). However, after installing and using for several months, I will say it looks like it is worth the expense. The HP M553 is a little larger than my previous printer, but is silent when idle and very quiet when printing. The print quality is excellent, but the speed (especially first page out after initial warm-up) is even more impressive. I have it sitting on the network at home and enjoy the duplexing (which is always a requirement feature for me). Even the duplex print speed is very good. I read numerous reviews on multiple printer manufactures before selecting and this new HP design seemed to be the best choice for me. So far, the printer has lived up to the excellent reviews have read. The new toner design is suppose to have a notable effect on cost. First the power consumption specs are down, and I can say there are no light flickers when the machine warms up (as this did for the smaller Samsung printer). And the idle power level is also much lower, but again it has a super fast warm-up and first page print from idle. The toner cartridges are expensive (especially for home use), but the new toner design is suppose to produce more pages and reduce the per page cost (and if specs hold up should make this a lower cost printer over its life). I picked up the M553 while it was on sale at Best Buy, and there was an HP special running on buying the toner with the printer (20% discount) so I picked up one of each. I decided to go with the lower toner capacity level, as the higher level was not as discounted, and for my use a full set of spare cartridges should last for a number of years.

    I have used HP Printers for my entire Real Rstate career...30+ years...and have always found them long lasting with excellent quality printing. This is my 3rd commercial grade unit and the printing is extraordinary at very efficient price. The build quality does not seem as solid and strong as my prior cp4525 printer, but it is slightly smaller and product quality seems as good so I will just have to be extra nice and gentle with it! It should be noted that both of these printers came with full toner cartridges so the cost of the equipment is about zero! I am very pleased with this printer.

    I previously had a color printer that ate toner running thru a "quality control" every time it warmed up from "sleep". I finally kept it awake all the time I was using it. The HP M553 takes a short warmup when I first turn it on, but when it goes into sleep it comes right out when it receives a print and prints it right away. Have only had it for a month so don't know how it is with using supplies but the reviews I read indicates it is very good and doesn't waste toner. It prints very fast and has good color for graphics and is pretty good on photos. Not as good as a dedicated color photo printer, but very good. So far I am very happy with it.

    This is just what the doctor ordered for preparing the class material for the classes I teach. The color prints are beautiful and it's really fast. Printing on both sides saves a lot of paper and the cost per page is much lower than printing with ink. Sure the replacement toner is pretty pricey, but the amount of pages you get for your money is more than worth it. The Air Print feature makes it so easy to print from our Apple devices too. I'm using it as a network printer and it was really easy to set it up. Worth every cent!

    Easy to set up on network, I-Phone prints directly to printer, price per page is much better than my previous HP Color Lazer printer. I bought this printer for its available X cartridges with 9500 pages of capacity for color. It will be a little pricy for a round of toners but when you do the math its about a 30% savings per page over the cheaper models with smaller cartridges. I have tried knock off cartridges and even re-filled my own . OEM toner is hard to beat for quality printing.

    I purchased this to use in my service lane at our dealership for our multi point inspection print outs and am very happy so far. It prints faster then our old HP CP4025 that lasted about 2 years. We print an average of 500-700 duplex pages per day and this thing has no issues handling it in color or black and white. If you run a business and need a fast, reliable, duplex laser = BUY this printer.

    The two negatives regarding this printer are the size and the noise level. It is nearly twice the size as my Xerox black and white printer, and the noise gets fairly loud when the printer is win operation. Other than that, it has been a fantastic addition to my office. It spools very quickly and time to first page printing is minimal. It is a very fast color printer with great print quality.

    The HP - LaserJet Enterprise is a good business machine, however, when I tried to set it up, Ithe Yellow print cartridge was not working and I had difficulty trying to set up the username. I called HP tech support and they were very helpful but was unable to fix the problem/ They gave me an order number and was able to return the printer with no problem.

    I previously had another color printer and it wasted toner and color drums which were very expensive. I have already printed a lot of copies with the HP M553 and am very happy with it. Haven't had to replace toner yet, and while more expensive it comes with a new drum. Happy with the quality and while color photos are not photo printer quality they are very good.

    I agonized over which printer to purchase. I am a writer and need to print documents of over 500 pages. This used to be a nightmare on my last printer. With this one, I can print a copy of over 50 pages faster than I can pull them out of the shoot. Print quality is great. Color too. So far, I'm happy.

    This is a great printer for a laser jet for the price point that this printer is priced at. The images are printed out with exceptional detail. The only downside I would say is the limitation to a printer tray.

    We've had several HP color printers before this one but the M553dn is proving to be the real deal. Great color quality, efficient, fast, and can handle high output workloads. Recommended.
