Install this HP LaserJet in only a few minutes-there's no CD required with HP Smart Install. Color copies on this HP MFP M75DW are so close to the original that I can't tell the difference, the feeder works without a hitch, and the scanner works well enough to use for depositing checks, (which considering some of the finicky OCR programs banks use for this purpose is saying something). The print function software is not overly complex but does provide options for adjusting color pallate, resolution, paper size, etc. Speed is as advertised which compared to my old HP4 is quick.
- Extremely simple install. Place it on your table, remove the protective tape and film, and power it on. The printer automatically registers itself on the network and you can download the drivers direct from its web interface - no CDs required.
- Print quality is better than expected. Brochures print in vivid colors and negligable banding. Photos are a bit on the soft side, but better than expected color gradience provides overall impressive results for a laser printer of this class.
- Negligable paper curl (some curl is expected in any laser printer)
- HP's ePrint service is superb, and allows printing via the internet, including from smart phones and via a large selection of free subscription publications (standard forms, daily news digests, comics, etc).
- Airprint support allows printing from Apple Mac, iPad, iPhone, etc (print only - no scan to iPad)
- Touch screen is intuitive and responsive
- Color saturation is consistent but the substrate fuses to a fairly flat, almost blotchy texture. In the end, the flat surface is better for photos and readability, but text and clipart graphics lack the 'pizzaz' of a high gloss (embossing) toner.
- print speed is slower than expected. I haven't clocked it but I estimate around 12-14 PPM - not the advertised 21 PPM.
- Extremely loud and annoying electronic whine when the system goes into sleep mode. I may someday call support about that but my immediate response was to just disable sleep mode - problem solved.
- scan quality is OK (600 dpi hardware, 1200 dpi interpolated), but "copy" quality is mediocre at best (300 dpi and very soft)
- touch screen is on a swivel mount and seems sturdy for what it is, but wasn't designed to stand up to the riggers of a family room with energetic kids.
- small toner cartridges, and toner is expensive. As a simplified cost projection, based on 2.6K page yield for the color toner, 4 cartridges (CMYK), and list price $114 per cartridge, that's approximately 17.5 cents per page. That's on the high end for a color laser, but that's why discount aftermarket toner suppliers exist.
- mixed build quality; the only point of legitimate concern. External components appear sturdy, but some of the internal components include some very thin plastic pieces. It should be fine as long as you're not opening the case several times each day, but if you're in a high volume operation and performing a lot of maintenance this could become an issue.
