Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn2277 from Best laser jet printer This printer is not only compact but it is well designed with no protruding trays. It prints incredibly fast with nice clean copies, great scanner - fast with clean copies. Love this printer. One of their best!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bob B 808 from Terrible envelope and/or tray printing The digital display cannot/will not acknowledge that an item is being printed from "Tray 1" which is the "feeder" in front of the machine. So very frustrating and customer service was no help whatsoever either. POOR CHOICE for office printing needs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MKimby from Fast Printing & Scanning - Makes Your Job Easier! The HP LaserJet Pro MFO M426fdw has certainly made life easier in the office. It has quick scanning and printing capabilities and gets the job done in half the time of other printers. It's very easy to use and set up was a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CincyMike from Easy setup and great features for the price My full-sized copier quit after 16 years, and when I went shopping for a replacement, this HP all-in-one seemed like a good deal and offered additional features. Now I have 5 HP printers that I use in my home for personal use. It is amazing how much prices have come down over the years - this is about 5% of what I paid for my copier in 2003, and is faster!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HPMFP4Me from New technology is obvious! The purpose for purchasing a new HP LaserJet Pro MFP printer is that my HP MFP printer that I purchased in 2010 finally died. I wanted to replace it with the same printer because I loved my old printer (you just get attached to things), but it was long out of production and new HP printers have better technology, quicker print speed, and longer toner cartridges (i.e., more printed pages per cartridge). Now I love my new printer and hope it lasts as long as my old HP MFP. There are lots of printers available from lots of manufacturers. I'm sticking with HP!

My scanner now leaves a one-inch black bar across the page. I'd like to get it repaired or repair it myself. Is a repair manual and parts available? Otherwise the printer works great.
