Rated 5 out of 5 by MMSS from Speedy Printer Upgrade This new HP LaserJet printer is a gem! It’s compact, fast and the scanner is great! I couldn’t be happier with this purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Penny18 from Easy to use! We replaced our previous printer, this is quick, small (space saving) & all the features we need for a small business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerome1 from Great product thus far. Bought 2-3 months ago, no issues so far. Seems like a great product so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Care1 from Not able to use all features. I purchased this device 30 days ago and have had to call tech support twice. The fax feature would not work all the time, when it did it would constantly restart the printer. When I called tech support I was advised the only options I had was to send the device to a HP repair store or have a refurbished device delivered to me. So that would leave our business without a printer for several weeks. Finally I requested a refund and returned the device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusieQ1974 from Great Printer We bought this printer in June of 2017 for the small company I work for. I liked it so much that when my son and daughter in law told me they needed a printer, I purchased one for them in Dec. 2018 for Christmas. When my old inkjet HP needed to be replaced once again I chose this printer for my home use this month (March 2019). So far none of us have any major problems. Once in awhile at work the scan feature will get stuck during the save mode, but it may have something to do with the company net work, so I don't take it too seriously. It is simple to use and prints and copies beautifully.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JR MD from Screen too small Regret having bought it for one reason only: the screen is much too small. Trying to use it is time consuming and prone to error because of how difficult to select from such a small area.
Date published: 2019-03-22
Rated 3 out of 5 by moreal from Scanner does not work properly The CD that came with the unit could not install the drivers. I eventually had to contact HP customer service and the representative had to use a different driver that was not even on their website. The scanner does not work properly. All of the scanned documents are crooked.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jmb32 from Setup difficulties When this printer was purchased as a replacement for my HP 3030 the rep. suggested this printer would be compatible with my iMac running OSX 10.8. Upon downloading and executing the HP_Easy_Start there was not driver (HP Scan) in the Applications as described on p. 61 of the included owner's manual. Two attempts to fix this (one chat and one phone rep.) failed to solve the problem. So I cannot scan to a folder on the computer. Otherwise the printer works pretty much as expected except the quality of the print on a 3 x 5" card is poor.

I dont have wireless connection settings. What am I supposed to do to get connected to the wifi.

Asked by: Cheeks
Hello. Thanks for your question. This HP LaserJet Pro M426fdn printer does not have a wireless connection. You can connect the printer to your wireless network with the Ethernet cable.

I have a LaserJet Pro MFP M426fdn printer and need to physically connect it to 2 computers so I do not have to change the cords when I print. Do you have a hub or whatever you call it so that I can physically connect both cords to the printer?

Asked by: Nanleigh
HP does not offer hubs at this time. Most any hub or router with ethernet ports will be compatible, however. Thanks for shopping at HP!

The printer temperature goes up when printing about 50-100 pages and from there encounters paper Jam needs to let the printer cool down for 10-15 minutes before it prints normally otherwise it keeps jamming the paper

I own this machine. I had an incoming fax of 335 pages. However, I only received 255 of the 335. It quit printing on page 255 but showed that it received all 335 pages. How can I find and print the remaining 79-80 pages that didn't print?
