Going from an HP 2200 monochrome (maybe 8 years old) to this was a great upgrade. This HP Laserjet Pro 400 was recommended by our IT guru and we just got two at work. Going to color was a real bonus, especially as I need to check the color on some of my work as our Web Editor. Rendition looks good and colors are true. I was a bit worried as I read one review that suggested 30 seconds to print but seems I see the page within about 10 seconds after hitting print.

 It uses four cartridges, so you won't have to throw out a tri-color cartridge just because one color runs out. Little less convenient to keep up with four cartridges but I think the savings are worth it. Seems it holds about 200 sheets and wish it held more, but you can add another tray for about $90 if that matters to you. I've used a ton of HP Inkjets over the years and overall they've been very good. This one should be too. By the way, this was for work so we didn't get the wireless, but if I was buying for home, I'd spend another $40 and get that to make it easy to print from wireless devices.

The main requirements we had for this printer included:
  • Needed to be accessible through the network. Wireless doesn't matter at all - it just needs to be on the network.
  • Good color capability
  • Duplex printing - most of the documents we print are required by law to be duplex, and it's cheaper anyway since it saves paper
  • Good envelope handling - As I already mentioned, I love Brother laser printers in general; but, they really do wrinkle up envelopes pretty badly
  • Color printing needed to be less expensive than an inkjet - I know it's still more expensive to print color, but the inkjets are horrible
Fortunately, the HP Laserjet Pro 400 M451DN has delivered in every category. It is just a bit slower than the Brother HL-5370DW that we were using, but it is keeping up with our workload just fine.

I've always hated the huge software packages that HP Laserjet Pro 400 bundles with their printers, but it was easy to just download the driver off their website and install it directly. The driver installer didn't have any issues locating the printer on the network either.

As far as print quality goes, it is absolutely amazing. The black is what we've come to expect from any modern laser, but the color just blew me out of the water! Honestly, I've always thought you couldn't get photo-quality pictures from a laser printer, but this definitely comes close. It excels at printing any kind of business graphic we would ever need - and does it quickly, and with full duplex.

Overall, I would highly recommend the M451DN. We've been very pleased with this one over the last month, and I'm having trouble thinking of anything we don't like about it.
