5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for your money, August 16, 2010
This review is from: HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf  Printer (CE841A#BGJ) (Office Product)
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!)
