Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassiesstar from Fabulous Color Laser Printer - Small and Efficient My HP Color LaserJet Pro M255dw is FABULOUS!!! Although at initially, I was not so sure since the front paper tray seemed a bit flimsy ... until it was full of paper, and then it slid back in like it was on ball bearings! The set-up was effortless, once i saw where to do it online ... it happened without a hitch ... EASY! As far as the color printing is concerned there was no set-up here, like I had to do with my earlier 12-year-old HP color laser printer ... this one was set up right from the start! And it already comes with ALL of the ink cartridges already inside the printer. Nothing to do but to plug it in, plug in the USB cable (or set up the Wi-Fi), go to HP online to set it up ... and print! EASY!!! And the images are fabulous, including the color photos which I also printed with it! If there is any downside, the ONLY thing that I found was that the whine of the printer, while it is printing, is a bit loud, but nothing to complain about from my perspective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLieb from HP - Small printer for business Was looking for a basic laser printer that could handle a lot of printing when needed. Color is a plus. A laser-jet would not do, and was not high quality. This prints great, and quick, and you can print from phone too. The set up was unbelievable. Literally one step, go to the website, and it found all the mac, wifi, computer, router addresses, downloaded and installed the software, (no guessing), and linked it all up, ready to print. No "add printer", no downloading software, no running install and hope if finds your printer. Excellent choice. Also, printer is NOT loud like other comments say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Siaperatyra from Impressed Fast little printer. Impressed with the quality and easy setup. The little screen makes connecting to the network and getting started a breeze. Printer supports Apple print so I can print documents straight from my phone. It’s also very quiet compared to my last laser jet that I’ve used for 15 years. Love the fact everything works as it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ross4 from Good printer for the money. Nice home printer, color was not as sharp as I was expecting - it still 5 starts as it’s good and the price is right.
