Rated 1 out of 5 by Mark App from This Printer Has Problems I cannot get the printer to print. When it does, paper jams. Prints come out landscape when they should be portrait. Switch it to landscape and they come out portrait. I need to get this printer to work in the next couple of days or I’m returning it. I tried running card stock through the bypass only to have the printer shut down after 3 prints to cool down. It overheats. A real time waster.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cris A from Wired internet Connection sucks Setting up having to dig for old wires to connect to the internet, router not accessible in another room. Glad I had a wi-fi extender to fix the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larboard Side Designs from Excellent Return Policy Received the printer with a hardware malfunction. The printing kept coming out skewed at a near 40 degree angle. Called support and they immediately sent me a replacement. New one came in just a few days and works perfectly. I use HP exclusively in my graphic design business and really appreciate the quantity, service life, and the support HP has. Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DocOz from Needed the large paper options This printer is speedy and meets our main needs of large format printing 11x17. So far it has been a great addition to our small business. I don't expect any issues as I have used HP Laser printers for many years without issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BigThumbedMonkey from Really underwhelming I purchased this printer a little over 18 months ago. The technical specs were just what I needed for my startup marketing firm. There's just one problem ... the color performance is downright horrible. There is simply no accuracy between screen and printed result. Have tried technical support. Had a service call tell me the machine was technically fine (all the technician did was look at the test page). I bought an expensive ColorMunki calibration system and that helped to bring some of the colors into the realm of believability, but it's nowhere near accurate. Where the printer output really falls down is photography and illustrations. It drops the yellows off the far end of the spectrum to the point where they're barely visible. Greens and reds are pretty rough, too; very muted and dull (but what do you expect, both colors need yellow). It handles vector artwork okay, but there is something wrong with the image processor. I can take the same file to an offset printer or a short run provider like Kinkos--heck even to an inkjet and the colors are exactly what I expect to see. It's not an issue with my color-calibrated monitors and software. It is hands-down, a printer issue. I've been a graphic designer for over 20 years and know my way around color calibrating from screen to print. I have never, stress NEVER, seen a printer perform this poorly. Apparently I'm not the only one, either. Do a search for poor color reproduction in HP tech support, or online and the results will be replete with people experiencing the same issue. Don't buy this printer if color accuracy is at all important to your workflow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JRRYAN from Printer good Software bad. Printer works fine. I have 3 -4 hours into trying to get it to work on a machine running Windows Vista Ultimate Service Pack 2 64 Bit. Unable to get it to print Setup as a network printer. Network install works fine on machine with Windows Vista business 32 bit using supplied disk and Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit using the Universal Printer Print Driver.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tammy46 from unusable the HP website information to the contrary, the software drivers are not supported on Macintosh OS 10.3.9 — when the drivers were installed, every attempt to send a 'print' command crashed the machine. A singularly expen$ive paperweight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fanmae from This product has great features! I use this printer in my small business and it has performed very well. The speed isn't what I really wanted but it gets the job done. The pictures are very good and sharp. I have enjoyed this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgeV from Love it! I am extremely happy with this printer. It has great color and works reliably. If you have Windows 7 you must use the Add a Printer on the computer instead of the enclosed CD. I elected to make this printer wireless with the HP Jet Direct wireless option. Again the CD did not work and I had to call Tech Support to install it. However it works great, and also allows printing from the iPad and iPhone. I also got the extra 500 sheet tray and I recommend it if you wish to install a complete pack of paper at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by L2intheoffice from Very Pleased, Again! This printer was purchased to replace our HP LaserJet 4 Plus - which was purchased new in 1994 and is still running strong. We needed a wide format printer for building plans/design drawings, and we wanted to combine that with a color printer. As we have always been in the past, we are once again very pleased with this HP product! This was extremely easy to set up and get connected into our network. The print and colors are crisp and clear, and this printer is so much more quiet than our old one. We've run a variety of printing projects through it - from envelopes to cardstock to large format paper - and are pleased with the output. Love the power saving feature, too. Our only "disappointment" would be the price of the color toner catridges; however, we would definitely recommend this printer to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StarWriter from A Great Printer This printer I purchased as a replacement for the less expensive CP1525nw which was also a good color laser printer but with one drawback - it only printed two-sided with a manual feed. I needed an automatic two-sided laser printer that would print the many color pictures that I was planning with the new book that I was writing. This CP5225dn fit the bill, and so far with nearly a thousand pages printed, it has performed flawlessly with brilliant colors on every page, and two sided just as I needed it. The only thing that I would remind anyone thinking of buying this printer - there is an extra tray offered (which increases the total available trays from two to three) which can come in very handy when printing with several different quality papers. However, only a single extra tray will work with this printer. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this printer for anyone who wants a top flight printer for printing bright colors on both sides automatically. The ink lasts up to 6,000 sheets, which makes up for the cost. It is a Great Printer for the Price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kotzebue from Poor print quality Out of the box, faint lines were noticable on every page. Initial "auto" color calibration was unsuccessful, two more calibrations were required. Print quality is still poor, even for this wimpy 600dpi. I expected much more from a machine that needs 1k in cartridges.
