My mom just bought this today and I helped her set it up. I'm already thinking about buying one, even though I already have a laser MFC at home. It's that good. The setup is easy, the quality is good, and the price is right.

1. Setup on PC, Mac, and network

It was super easy. HP includes the usual install CD, but you don't need it on PC; they put the files on the machine, and they show up when you connect the USB cable (the same way a USB flash drive would, though this doesn't work on Mac). Just follow the instructions; everything is straightforward.

If you want to use it over the network (i.e., connect it to your router), you still need to connect it via USB first. Before too long, the installation program tells you to disconnect the USB cable, and you don't need to connect it via USB any further. (So if you have a USB cable that you can use temporarily, you don't need to buy another just for the printer to use it over the network.)

If you haven't yet connected the networking cable from the printer to the router, it'll tell you when to connect it, and the router and printer should talk to each other without any difficulty. (My mom's router is a modem/router/wifi hub combo from the Paleozoic Era, issued by a very low-tech rural DSL provider, and it worked just fine.) I expected the networking part to be hard, and it was actually fairly easy. If everything I've written so far makes sense, you probably know enough to set this up on the network.

Once it's set up on one computer and on the network, use the driver CD to install the drivers on any other computers on your network; this is even easier.

My wife and I are very pleased with this printer.
The bottom line:
It's quiet, fast (for our needs) and very well built. It connects directly to our home network, which means I don't have to turn my wife's computer (or vice versa) on to print. Perfect printer for a home office for a great price. Replacing our old inkjet printer for a laser was by far the best decision we could have made.

Our review:
My wife needed a copier (she has a home office) and our inkjet was acting funny for the last few weeks. We had been spending $[...] every six weeks in ink cartridges and were getting tired of it. So we looked into laser printers and figured out that if we spent twice as much upfront in a laser printer, in the long run we were going to save money. Every one told us that bar Xerox (incredibly expensive), HP made the best printers. We compared Canon, Brother and HP B&W laser printers and found that the m1212nf was the best deal: flat bed, automatic feeder (for when you need to copy a bunch of single pages), and a price tag comparable to lesser quality printers.
Truly plug-and-play for a Vista computer (my wife's), you don't even need a CD since the drivers are stored IN the printer. Painless installation for Linux (Ubuntu 10.4), as well. You just need to download HPLIP's latest version from HP's website. It is that easy.
The printer is connected through an Ethernet cable to our LAN, and I can print wirelessly over WiFi, no need to turn my wife's computer on.
A flat bed cum auto feeder gives you the greatest flexibility possible to scan and copy documents.
Its footprint is a little big, but this is a multifunction device, so what are you going to do? It sits quite nicely over one of those small file cabinets.
Overall is a well built piece of equipment: it's sturdy and it works as intended. (Haven't tried the fax, though... it's no longer the 1990s!)

I've had this printer for roughly a month now, having replaced an older HP Laserjet 1300 series printer. I'm very happy with its performance thus far. Set up on my Mac was easy enough (download the latest driver package from the HP site), print quality is excellent (and very fast), copier function is actually faster and better than I hoped it would be, and fax performance is great. Document feeder works pretty well, too. My only gripes are 1) the copier lid isn't hinged, so copying thick books is a bit awkward; and 2) there is no secondary paper feed, so when I need to print an envelope I have to take all the paper out of the feed tray and adjust the paper holders, print the envelope, and then put it all back. All in all, though, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

I purchased this printer with the impression that claiming Mac OSX compatibility means that it is fully recognized and usable by the OS. However, that is not the case for OSX (v10.6.6 latest updates as of this writing).

Connected via USB to a Mac Pro tower. The device prints fine. Copies fine. I do not have a phone line to test fax. Have not tried network setup.

Scanning is a different story. Under OSX the only way to scan is with the included absolutely bare bones basic HP Scan software. This software has no options besides resolution you wish to scan in and if you would like to save as jpg, pdf or email it (no TIFF). OSX does not recognize this device as a scanner. This means any programs such as the OSX built in Image Capture, Preview, or 3rd party programs like VueScan can not be used. This is a complete disappointment since my sole reason for getting a multifunction printer is to have built in scanner functionality. HP should not be advertising these devices as OSX compatible if they work like this.

Even worse three different HP phone support techs claimed it should be recognized by the OS and had it working in a lab. One was very unpleasant and not willing to do anything to help. Even when I said you are losing a customer for not trying to help with this situation. These claims were totally rebuked by an HP representative answering my post in their online support forum. This individual verified my findings stating there was no appropriate driver for OSX and only the HP Scan software could be used for this model printer. Verified same behavior on 2 Mac machines.

UPDATE 5/1/2013:
I believe Apple has included some updates that now allow this printer to natively scan on OSX. I am currently running latest 10.8.
