No thanks....really disappointed.

Very quiet when printing and the quality is great, however the printer itself is quite hefty and surprised me at how big a footprint it turned out to have.

I bought this printer about a year ago to print labels for our home business. All our inkjet printed labels were fading too fast to sell our product. We got the laser printer and now our labels look great and professional. I've had no problems. I have printed labels, party invitations, pictures, etc. on label paper, cardstock and regular paper. Everything looks great and professional. Very easy to use printer. Also, I am still using the original toner cartridges that came with it. I just ordered a new black cartridge but I probably won't have to replace it for another week or two. The color cartridges are still at 50% so they will last a while longer. I'm very happy with this printer.

PROS: low price, prints sharp and clean, quiet printing.
CONS: won't handle all paper stock. Warm-up time is 1-2 minutes.

I bought this printer to replace my 14 year old Hp LJ 4MP. I assumed the CP1215 would be capable of doing the same things my old one did and more in color.
My immediate need was to print out baby shower invites. The card stock was within the limits of HP's recommendations, no thicker than a 4x6 card. The printer would print 1 invite, then error out with "misprint". After 20 minutes of making sure I removed all the tabs and protectors that HP ships with and making sure this model supported 4x6 card stock, I found a way to get the rest of my stock printed. I had to press the resume button, causing it to reinitialize the warm-up sequence and then print. Took 30 minutes to do 30 invites.

This printer seems fine to print every day stuff. But if you print specialty paper, size and type, be aware it might not handle the paper well.

We have two computers, a PC and a Mac laptop. For the price, this seemed like a great option since we wanted a color laser printer. Be aware that this printer is NOT Mac compatible. HP does not supply a Mac driver, nor is one readily available on the web.

Wow, Amazon is selling this at a great low price and I am very happy with what I got. This printer is my first laser and color to boot and is very impressive in terms of the quality of graphics and text output. The printer comes with enough ink to print out 750 pages at normal mode printing. Then the cartridges are spendy but will have enough ink for 1400 pages for full cartridges (2200 pages for the black cartridge). There are 4 cartridges required for the printer, each costs around $65 each.

I think this will be far cheaper than ink printers when taking a long term view. One neat feature is the printer software is well designed and shows you exactly how many pages each cartridge has left remaining before the ink is depleted.

Very quiet when printing and the quality is great, however the printer itself is quite hefty and surprised me at how big a footprint it turned out to have. Make sure you have a big space for this printer. Also, the printer occasionally makes a noise like it is resetting or something, not unpleasant or anything but keep in mind its not totally silent all the time when not working.

I bought this model 3 weeks ago and have been forced to give up on it. It paper jams at a 60% plus rate, and nothing I've tried has been able to resolve the problem. Different paper; same result. Calibrations; No difference. Adjust paper slides; No go. I will say that when it does print without jamming the quality is beautiful. Unfortunately, the jamming occurs so often as to render it non-functional. I don't know whether mine was a lone lemon, or whether the problem extends to the entire model range. Regardless, I'm disappointed.

It will print. It can print very nice full color photo images. But it usaully doesn't. The problem is color alignent. It's calibration mechanism is ineffectual. So more often full color photo images look dull and blurry.

I wanted a printer for two tone black & white (not grayscale) docs 90% of the time and full color photo images 10% of the time. This is NOT the right printer for that type of usage. Here's why. Try this. Buy 4 new HP toner cartridges for $300. Next, set the printer driver to Black & White printing ONLY. Now, print 20 black & white docs a day for 6 months. Your black toner will be exhausted. Now here's the fun part. Your color cartridges will be exhausted as well. This is not pilot error. This is a serious design defect. If only black was being printed, the color cartridges should not be consumed EVEN IF THE DRIVER SETTING WAS FOR FULL COLOR. But of course it wasn't.

Do not buy this printer. HP should be ashamed of themselves. What does it tell you that the printer will NOT print black only UNLESS the color cartridges are also installed AND have toner. So it is unsuitable for any task, B&W or color, or both. It sucks at all three. I was fooled by the low price point for the printer. Now I know better and I can no longer trust the HP brand name.

I have a Vista OS and the software was surprisingly easy to install, considering Vista doesn't make anything easy. I've used the printer to print a variety of documents. The clarity is great. I'm glad I got a color laser instead of another deskjet. Time will tell how long the cartridges last. 2 negatives: the footprint is much larger than I expected and it is slow. The end result is worth it, though. I wish the cartridges were a little less expensive, but I guess that's the price one pays for flexibility. In the long run, I believe this printer will be more cost effective than a deskjet.
