The original plan was to use the internal tray for 11x17 and use the manual feed to hold a stack of 8.5x11. After a few days it was clear that a second tray would be a size investment so that the manual feed tray was not open all of the time.
Enter the HP Color LaserJet Professional CP5225dn Printer. This printer does not have all the bells and whistles of a fully automated color copier, but it does print a great tabloid (11" x 17") sized paper with automatic duplexing. Thus, we are not hindered by the lack of Finisher but are realizing the economic saving of not paying a monthly lease.
The actual dimensions after you load the paper are under 24" square. This is not the vendor's fault they did their job well. The printer seems to be working fine. I did notice that one computer that was running Vista Ultimate seemed to print Adobe files that had colored images even though I designated the printout to be black and white. Printing from Word with colored words, for example, would print out in Black and White.

CP5225n Printing quality is superior, and toner usage is minimal. Often times I will print something landscape but it prints portrait thereby cutting off the image. There doesn't seem to be any hard and fast rule to this. So far, I'm batting about 20%. I tried physically changing the paper. It worked at first. But this morning I had landscape selected, loaded the paper landscape and sure enough, the image truncated. A bit humbug.
