5 Star Review   By Rebelman on HP - Apr 17, 2013   

Delivery was surprisingly quick after placing the order. The wireless features were easy to setup and was recognized by all users. It is hard to get the "eprint" feature going but with practice, it worked fine. The hook up with the tablet worked out. I strongly suggest downloading the user manual because you can figure how to use the buttons on the printer. if you upgrade the memory, you will need to read the user manual to get the memory recognized. It is not difficult but you need to see where on the menu you do it. The retaining clips to hold the memory chip in place are very fragile and will break. I think the clips would have been better in metal than the plastic. The cartridges are easy to replace but you will need room to pull out the cartridge drawer/rack.The problem with the automatic duplexing feature being the default was not a default on my printer. You will have to open the menu to access this feature but you will have to turn it off after using it. The menus that I am referring to are in the software that is accessed by your computer. All users through the wireless connections can change the setup. Also as with all new electronic equipment, especially printers with toner cartridges, you have to get used to the initial burn smell and that will fade. Enjoy!

set up was a breeze
4 Star Review   By oily on HP - Feb 4, 2013   

I am running Vista Business on 3 computers I put the CD in each and ran the wizard, Wired Network . Everything worked no problems. Very heavy, getting a few more paper jams than I had with my HP 2600, we will see long term how that goes. happy over all

Everything I wanted in a printer, and more
5 Star Review   By DMJ572 on HP - Jan 2, 2013   

In the past I have always used Dell printers, but I took a chance on the HP LaserJet Pro 400 color Printer M451dw, and could not be happier for the decision! I run a small business that produces a small/medium output of printed material. This HP printer not only keeps up with my demand, the quality is excellent too. I used to have trouble printing on envelopes, and postcards, but not any more. This HP has printed everything that I have thrown at it. And so far I'm very happy with the toner use, it doesn't seem to be buring through toner, and I still have the toner that came with the printer and they're not even half used (and I've gone through 2+ reams of paper just in December). I will be purchasing the extra paper drawer, I really don't have to, but it would be nice to have when I'm using different print media throughout the day. The other things that I love - the duplex printing! WOW! and the small size of the printer, and I thought the cost was pretty reasonable. The printer is not super quiet (it's not super loud either), but then again neither were the other printers that I've owned. Definitely a perfect fit for me. I would recommend this printer to anyone.

This product was not what I expected
3 Star Review   By LittleMom on HP - Dec 27, 2012   

Upon initial use of printer, print-outs were streaking; color distorted; totally unsatisfied. Printer had to be returned; awaiting another printer to see if better performance. Could be that it was one bad apple in the bunch... Not what I expected from HP, as HP as been at the top of my printer listing.

very poor design
1 Star Review   By Griffin1 on HP - Nov 2, 2012   

The set up for legal paper is ridiculous. You are required to leave the tray sticking out to use legal paper. This design is a joke.

Fantastic delivery on time EASY setup!!
5 Star Review   By Winkles on HP - Aug 2, 2012   

This product was delivered quickly and as promised, It was expertly packaged and protected. The set up went quickly and easily. The product performance is exceptional. The whole process should be used as a model for all electronic service and product providers. I am a "mature" user with intermediate computer skills. It was good to be able to tell someone they "did good".

Best HP yet
5 Star Review   By MargaritaMark on HP - Jul 23, 2012   

I bought this for its color and wireless capability to replace a 2200d that would not run on Windows 7, but otherwise was running great. Quality is great. Outstanding color. Ease of set up is very good. I found that to avoid the default color/double sided printing, it was necessary to set up the printer shortcuts to print the way I do - normally black and single sided. East to set up the shortcuts but you MUST set printing to grayscale. It took me hours to figure this out, but it's the only way to stop color default. But using the printer shortcuts is definitely the way to go.

Everything is great
5 Star Review   By Larry37 on HP - Jul 4, 2012   

I have hard time to understand WPA, WPS, etc. I never notice these until this printer. I had to call HP support. They told me that my router is WPA. They bypassed it. The printer is working great. Later I will get a WPS Router. Then reinstall. Thank you.

A good unit
4 Star Review   By qweoruaz on HP - Jun 14, 2012   

One warning: this sucker is *heavy*. I had a color LaserJet prior to this (logic board died), and it was lighter *with* an extra paper tray. LIft with your legs -- I'm not kidding. The setup is easy enough, though when you're using the front panel for the first time (or after a while), you'll be guessing a lot which way the menu structure goes. Some menu titles in the front panel configuration could have been better thought out. Compared to my previous LaserJet, this one spits the printed pages forward, as opposed to in the back, which is good. It seems to take up less space, as well, and I hope the auto-sleep will save me a few cents on electricity compared to the old one. The toner trays look puny, so I'm curious how long they will actually last. But the printer is quick, compact, and easy to setup and use. Just remember to lift with your legs.

Printer has good features
3 Star Review   By LarryG on HP - Jun 2, 2012   

This printer has really good features. Print quality is excellent. It is easy to use. The toner is quite expensive compared to my last hp LaserJet. My biggest complaint is that I can't get it to print on one side only if I print more than one page. For example, if I am printing pictures for a photo album, I cannot send more than one page of pictures or it will print on both sides. I have went in to turn the double sided print off, but it prints on both sides anyway. My last printer had the double sided printing on it and it was extremely easy to use. This one is set up the same way, but doesn't want to work correctly. It is for that reason only that I give it 3 stars.

Great Printer
5 Star Review   By djsanchez on HP - May 7, 2012   

The printer is excellent for our small office use. The setup instructions for wireless setup were hard to follow but once I called and received support the printer worked great. Everyone in the office can print wirelessly and quickly to this printer. An added bonus is the ability to print from anywhere via HPePrint and to print from my iPad and iPhone. The print quality is GREAT. I would recommend this product.

Takes some getting used to.
3 Star Review   By Orvin on HP - Apr 20, 2012   

So far the printer works very well. The prints are beautiful, the machine is quiet (relatively) and setup was a cinch. There are however a few quirks. For one, you must recheck the two-sided setting before every print; the printer likes to decide on its own whether to print two-sided or not. When this function is activated, it works flawlessly. Also, I have on occassion tried printing every other page and that does not work at all. If you use Windows 7 (64) as I do, you may want to consider another printer if you will need to use these types of functions very much. This is my second LaserJet and the first one did not like Windows 7 (64) either. I never could get the duplex printing to function, even after lots of back and forth with HP. Maybe a future driver upgrade will fix it all. I hope so.

Just what I needed
4 Star Review   By IbyD on HP - Apr 19, 2012   

We are very happy with the printer. It does a very good job. We purchased it to make mailers and brochures for our small business. The print quality is very nice. The duplexer is a little difficult to figure out to get it to do automatic duplexing, depending on the paper, etc. Overall, it is a good printer for the money.

Good fit
5 Star Review   By LT99 on HP - Mar 9, 2012   

Fits in relatively small space. Excellent print quality. Software on CD does not work with OS X Lion. Had to download appropriate software. Other than that easy setup. Paper trays stick out and leave paper exposed to dust & dirt when legal paper loaded.
