Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paperjam straight out of box. Can't use.On initial setup, after installing paper, printer says there's a paper jam in Tray 2. Opened tray and don't see paper anywhere. Looking through paper path, I don't see anything. Error will not resolve, so printer is useless. Returning for replacement. Hopefully, just a bad unit.Other than that printer looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP managed to screw up a simple printerThis printer powers itself off or goes into sleep mode and cannot wake up when a fax comes in. You literally have to power the unit on. The power management cannot be disabled with current firmware.Once it actually prints, its good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance questionableScanner went down after a few days - used HP Tech Support. Next day print feature went down - used HP Tech Tool. Display box on printer - not all features work and not advised prior to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Example: Great features!This printer was a gift for my sister. We loved the ease of setting it up! We downloaded the drivers and just worked like the brochure said it would! She previously had an inkjet "competitors" printer and has since sent me several messages with how happy she is with this printer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine entry level laserJetThe printer seems to do a fine job printer documents and works quietly. There are two minor inadequacies:1. The black toner went out much quicker than I expected. I don't feel that I have printed more than 1000 pages. And it is expensive (I don't expect to change toners a couple time a year, that will make the printer costs less affordable). 2. Sometimes it does not respond to a printing request, and I have to restart the printer. It will show that the printer is in use in status, but it was not. Overall, it is a good printer for family use. I only had it for 3 months or so. Hope it lasts as long as the other HP ink officejet that we owned for years (but eventually bowed out due to old age).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PrinterI totally love this printer. The thing I like the most is the high-quality printing that is super fast. It`s also a great size for a small office. The touchscreen is very easy to use. The only downside would be the setup for the scan to folder option that needs to be done online. The instructions were not the greatest for Mac users so I am not currently able to use that function. I reached out to HP customer service who was not able to assist me with this issue and had transferred me to 3 different level reps. Overall it`s probably the best printer I have used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AdequateI've had this about 1 1/2-2 months. The touch screen barely works. You have to keep pushing on it to get it to copy. You scan from your desktop. You can't scan from the printer which isn't efficient if you do a lot of scanning. The quality is good . The feeders don't fee straight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Multifunction PrinterSetup: The printer was very easy to set up. The instructions were self explanatory and assembly was a breeze. The biggest challenge is taking the printer out of the box because it is a bit heavy about 40 pounds. It is helpful to have more than one individual lifting the product. The printer can be set up by anyone who can read, technical knowledge is definitely not a requirement. The download and installing the printer software is very easy. Quality: The product print quality is 100 percent. The outcome is clear crisp and very easy on the eyes. The printer also is one of the fastest wireless printers I have ever used. In less than a second of hitting print the document is coming out. There are no ink streaks on the page.Features

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdwThis printer had the features I was looking for. I particularly wanted a touch screen for setting up and operating the printer. I connected wifi in about 5 minutes. It was easy and the touch screen worked the same as my previous Color LaserJet Pro but was smaller in size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with LinuxI have a pure Linux network in my house, and was looking for a small, high quality all-in-one printer with Linux compatibility. This one fits the bill--and more. HPLIP found the printer and configured it on the first try, with no errors. Everything works perfectly from the network--printing and scanning. Print quality is excellent, and likewise for scan quality. Only a few years ago, having a color laser printer at home would have been unthinkable. It's now affordable and works perfectly with Linux.I couldn't be happier with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Difficult exp w/ set up, connectivity& cartridgesI bought this on cyber Monday after fair amount of research. I was looking for one comparable to my old HP which had Internet connection problems oh but otherwise was working pretty well. The new model is streamlined but the HP quickset up does not connect you to any of the scanning or other Features, I had to hire a computer person to do a full set up for me. Then the ink blead and I spent an hour on the phone with HP Finally, I switched ink cartridges after running 20 test pages. Then the ink started bleeding again so the diagnosis was not that. I had to go through more stuff on the phone with HP. Then I changed all the cartridges again and it seems to be working even though there are connectivity problems with other computers in the house. I have a new high-speed Internet Internet I have a brand new Lenovo laptop I really wanted just a new printer to make everything work in sync- it does not. It’s required 4 new printer cartridgdes, 2 hours on the phone w HP, two hours with my computer person and there are still connectivity problems. The printing itself now is clear but I have to turn on and off the printer to reconnect whenever I leave my desk

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice printer and scanner - easy set upI am pleasantly surprised by this printer. We have been using it for a month. Home Office. Word docs, spreadsheets and floor plans. The color is sharp and fast. Scanning is good too. Have not used the fax and probably never will. Have set it up wired and then changed to wireless. No problems. A lot of printer for the money. CDW shipping is awesome as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP Knows How to Make a Printer!This is my 2nd HP Laser Jet Multi-Purpose printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullIt has a great design, but each time I want to scan something, it takes about 30 min to keep trying to connect the printer to my desktop. It generally requires I restart both the printer and the computer a couple of times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Laser Jet choice!This printer was extremely easy to set up. The instructions were detailed and was ready to go in minutes. The copy quality is very good. The colors are sometimes slightly off from the original but you wouldn`t notice if you didn`t have them side by side. There has been a few times that the printer seemed to need time to warm up. I would send a print job to the printer and it would be 4 or 5 minutes before it printed. This may have just been isolated incidents since this hasn`t happened in days and items are now printing immediately. We did experience one paper jam but with easy access through the back door of the printer, it was quickly fixed. This printer will scan and/or print legal size documents. This feature was not on either of our last two printers. Also, our last printers had a part that stuck out from the printer to catch the prints/copies. This printer has a contained area where copies come out and doesn`t take up extra space. Overall, I am pleased with the ease of use and the quality of the prints.
