This is like the Office brought to your house! I would recommend this to anyone who is starting out in Business or has a high volume of printing (Black) to get through at home.
This is compact - easy to use - quick to set up - good quality - easy to replace the cartridges - relatively good value for money - a reputable name! What more can you ask for!!
Having recently set up working for myself from home (Part Time) I find this to be an excellent starting point! I am not a technical whizz by any means and found that the instructions were very easy to use, I purchased this from PC World and was told that I would be able to print approximately 100 sheets with the cartridge that is contained in the box (this is included in the price when you purchase the printer)......... In actual fact I think that I got about 500 sheets from the cartridge before it started to fade. It is very efficient - the quality is excellent and I have been able to use this to produce reports, presentations, print onto slides, print onto photograph paper and also for Wedding Invitations.
The replacement cartridges are approximately £65.00 (or thereabouts) and can be bought from most high street retailers such as staples, office world etc or online. There is the option to purchase cartridges that have been refilled for a discounted price however when they are on 3 for 2 and similar price point offers you are then able to get roughly the same price per cartridge for HP branded cartridges.
I print quite frequently from this and have not replaced the toner since 13th March 09. So, gratefully I have manged some 3months using this cartridge - which is far better value for money than I used to get with my ink jet printer which I had previously used.
I would say that this printer would be ideal, not only for a small home based business, but also for a small-medium office business. The printing is quick and off excellent quality, I have experienced no maintenance issues to date and from reading other reviews and/or comments on HP printers I think that is quite consistent across the board.
Summary: Great Printer - excellent quality and finish, good value for money - Would recommend to all.
