Verified Purchase
Never saw anything like it, cold start to printing in about 5 seconds and almost instantaneously afterwards. I also bought the add on media tray and absolutely no problems with the driver interface, hardware connection, etc. in controlling the add on. Even with different sizes of paper the auto paper selection works very well going between manual, first tray (legal or envelope) and letter in the media tray. Well design and a seeming solid printer (only drop the qualifierafter a couple of years of work). The text is clear and solid even under magnification. I would highly recommend.

I have a very simple office environment and have used HP laserjet printers, or equivalent, for over 25 years. When this new printer arrived, the installation was pretty straightforward. THEN, I was asked whether I wanted a Basic setup, or the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED setup that would give me higher levels of functionality, etc., that required the accompanying disc to be inserted and installed. I thought that I should stick to Basic but for some reason opted for the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED setup.
BIG MISTAKE!!!!!
Unless you are using the .NET MicroSoft services, STAY AWAY from their HIGHLY RECOMMENDED setup option.
After a few hours of swearing at MicroSoft and all things Windows, I managed to uninstall the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED program and went back to square one and installed the BASIC option.
Nice printer, just be careful on installation and setup!!

Having previously owned an HP LaserJet 4 I had high expectations from this printer and it did not disappoint. Using it primarily to print hundreds of pages of tax return documents, it has done its job as expected. It is extremely fast and the print quality is superb. I would strongly recommend to anyone who requires a high quality, medium cost B&W printer.

My ancient Laserjet 1200 finally died, and it should have been replaced long ago, it was so slow, like pdfs would take several minutes a page, but it had given me such good service and had such good print quality for MS Word documents, the bulk of our printing needs, I couldn't let go. I got this printer because it got solid reviews, I didn't need anything fancy, and I'm used to HP printers both at home and at work. I set up the printer on a weekend. My first mistake because if there's problems--and I had them--the online chat people, at least according to the one I chatted with, are only trained for Windows and you need to call the tech number for Mac. However, when you call the tech people and go through the voice menu, you're told that a laser printer is a business machine, so you can only call during business hours. I was making a master for a reader for a class I'm teaching, and I needed to print stuff over the weekend, so I had to figure things out on my own. Warning number one: don't try setting it up during non-business hours unless you know what you're doing.

When I opened the box, I was shocked by the lack of instruction and documentation. There is a user manual that you can download from the HP site, but I didn't find any reference to that in the documentation that came with the printer. Maybe it's there, but it wasn't findable by me. What it did say is that if you have a Mac you need to download the drivers from the HP site. I found that easily, but after I downloaded the drivers, my computer said they were unreadable. Without the drivers, the LaserJet prints, but you cannot adjust the print quality and I needed to get better print quality than the non-driver version.

Our school purchased 30 of the HP M401n printers, and for the first year and a half they worked fine. Then they all began to fail with an error "Jam In Cartridge Area," although there was no jam. We contacted HP, but since the warranty was only good for a year, they said, "sorry about your luck" and blew us off.

A failure or two is to be expected when you are using equipment in a high volume place such as a school, but the failure of every unit within two years is unprecedented. To add insult to injury, when we brought in a printer repair company to see if they could fix the issue, they said they could because they had an internal HP bulletin on our very issue and how to repair the problem.

Avoid this this thing. HP sure isn't going to help you when your printer inevitably fails soon after the warranty expires.

Previously, we had a color Samsung laser printer which was slow and used up cartridges fast. It also tended to jam a lot. After lots of swearing, we replaced it this year with the HP 401n and have been very satisfied. The HP is very quick, though a little noisy. The quality of the printing is great. I do not regret the purchase and would do it again if I have to.

Pros:

1. Fast cold start. From pressing "print" to the first page exiting the printer is about 15 seconds, if it hasn't been used in 24 hours. If it has been used 2 hours ago, it is even faster. If it has been used just a few minutes ago, it takes less than 5 seconds.

2. iPhone compatible right out of the box. This is because the printer supports AirPrint. Just plug the printer into Ethernet and then click "print" on your iPhone while using the same network, and this HP shows up in the list of printers. Other printers need to be plugged into a computer (like a MacBook Pro or Windows desktop), and the computer needs to be on, or else the iPhone can't see the printer. HP helped to invent AirPrint so it is no surprise it works especially well.

3. PostScript-compatible. My company uses a piece of software that outputs raw PostScript and does not use printer drivers, and this printer works. Many newer printers don't.

Cons:

4. The display stays lit up for hours after printing. This doesn't bother me, but it is not right.

5. When you print 2 or more pages, it will sometimes insert blank pages. These are not stuck to other sheets, they are spit out separately. This only bothers me a little bit, so I am taking off a star.
