    Slow to wake up but prints like a champ

    So i've just purchased this printer and I am still evaluating it, but so far, mostly good. I'm using it in a home office setup AirPrint connected to a bunch of Mac computers (2 desktops and 3 laptops). The box it was shipped in was rock solid and the printer was well protected, so no issues getting it shipped. The setup could not have been easier - HP has been doing this for years, so plug and play is pretty much plug and play. Paper capacity is good, but for the life of me I can't understand why the paper tray is not a few mm taller to handle an entire ream of paper (maybe my paper reams are too thick?). Print quality is sharp, colors are vibrant. Printer is a little noisy when it gets chugging. My only complaint is the warm up time from waking. The first print of the day always seems to hang and hang (minutes) - the computer says the print is complete and I am still waiting for the chugging to start. Just when I'm about to give up, out comes the print. All subsequent prints come out quickly. Not sure what it is doing from wakeup. The printer is supposed to have a feature where you add a memory stick in the back - I've not done that yet. Perhaps if I do it will speed up the first print of the day? Anyway, so far I am liking my new color laser printer from HP. Overall I am happy with the build quality, fit and finish, print quality, and so far the ink consumption has been sipping rather than guzzling.

    The best part is that it works flawlessly

    The HP Laserjet Pro M452dw is such a departure from the LaserJet MFP M477fdw that it's hard to believe that they have virtually the same print engine (they use the same toner). You can read my review of the all-in-one/MFP unit (spoiler alert, it is craptastic), but enough about that. Let's talk about the HP Laserjet Pro M452dw. Printouts come out fast with tremendous detail. For a single function device, it does that one thing and it does it perfectly. Is there anything else I could really ask for? Works great with AirPrint, Mac OS X, Windows 10. You can print on the Mac without any additional drivers using AirPrint, or you can install HP's half-decently integrated drivers for additional options. PDFs print fine unlike its all-in-one counterpart. I am much happier and saner having ditched the M477fdw for the M452dw and adding a Fujitsu SnapScan ix500 to my small office.

    Quick and Efficient

    I have had several HP printers over the years and have always been satisfied. This latest is no exception. It has a great 3” touch control panel. It has just about every feature in a single function printer you could need. The entire family easily connected with our various devices and can now print web pages or pictures whenever we need them. While some others thought it was not great in the performance area, I found it to be quick and efficient for an at home printer. The inks are a little expensive, but not enough for this reviewer to give it a poor rating.

    Amazing Printer- Capabilities I never Imagined

    Our home office is in the middle of an upgrade.. We are replacing an HP LaserJet CP-1215, and a 20 year old LaserJet 1100.. As you can imagine we make things last. The LaserJet Pro M452dw so far outperforms those two that it is difficult to describe. Needless to say we are extremely happy with the new printer (the fact that it prints double sided blows us away) Thanks for bringing us into modern times!

    I did a lot of research trying to find a printer to accommodate wireless, connected and device printing - this is the printer for all of that. Installation was a few minutes. The printer readily found my network and connected - all my home computers can print to it wirelessly and I can print from my work laptop via a USB cable. I bought HP Glossy paper - the prints are near photo quality. Print times - even from sleep mode are very fast.

    What's to say, it is an HP printer, known for their quality products. I plugged it in, connected to the network and started printing. We have Windows and Mac PCs on the network and they saw the printer and were able to print as soon as the printer was connected. This printer is great because it has full cartridges rather than starter ones, so the slightly more expensive dw model was worth it.

    Doesn't work well w/Quickbooks

    Quite a bit of my time is spent printing checks through Quickbooks for our business and several non-profits. Unfortunately, the printer does not work with an individual check . It will print the check, but won't spit it out so have to open the back and dig it out. Also, when that happens, it refuses to print anything afterward until I turn off the printer and restart it. That is just too much time-consuming hassle.

    Perfect Small Business Printer

    This printer is wonderful as it is both color and compact. It is perfect for my business and I could not be happier. Purchase the XL cartridges for even more longevity. My only complaint is that it dos not hold a complete ream of paper, so you always have to take some out. It is able to add another paper bed though - worth looking into.

    Great wireless 2 sided color laser printer. While not a true photo printer it prints really good photos and great graphics. Very good app support for Android, don’t know about Apple. Being able to stick it in another room and be able to access it from anywhere in the house and from all my devices is great. Very happy with it.

    Great printer. Only problem was had trouble getting it to connect to wireless network. Worked fine on USB. Tested it at Best Buy and had to set up wireless with a static IP address. Haven't had time to fix it at home but will be setting up a home office so will get the Geek squad to come out and connect all devices when I get back.

    It's extremely fast and the color is consistent. I see what people mean with the color being different than what shows on the computer but it only seems to be with Microsoft colors when you print from the Internet it is the same color as intended or displayed.

    Really nice printer. Two-sided printing works great. Wifi setup is easy, and stays connected. Be aware that picture print quality is never as good with a toner-based printer compared to ink-based. That said, picture print quality is decent.

    Pretty good print quality for the price. Toner is expensive, but that is for all printers. Used a solid ink printer (Xerox) for many years, but happy with the switch to this printer. The wireless feature is also very handy to print from any device (computer, tablet, phone etc...)

    HP is the standard for my company. This was the next model in line with what I had. Greatly improved. Very fast to print and quiet. The Ink is still too expensive. I do wish they would downsize this even more. Takes up a lot of room on desk.

    Reviews and Best Buy warranty made this feasible for wife's card making programs to work right. Still will be spending time to sync colors on computer screen to actual output, but very close enough to use for pictures even.

    We bought this printer to back-up the main color copier at the office and to allow our office manager quick and or private printing. It handles the various papers and card stocks with ease. I would recommend it.

    I purchased this printer for my office, it works well and it has a good print quality. The only drawback is that it does not print lines straight, but if straight lines are not an issue, is a good printer.

    Printer seems to be working great...I now have 3 of them and I just need to see how the high yield ink cartridges work...also have not set up the wireless capabilities; but wired, these are great little work horses.

    Printer has excellent quality. slow for the first page, but then ok. Note. if you run out of paper, the printer does not hold the job, and you will need to restart where you left off.
