HP Color LaserJet Pro CM1415FN Multi Function Printer : Good but slightly disappointed with features

It is multi task, fast and looks awesome i use it everyday and it works smoothly. Great value and i highly recommend it.

I was really looking forward to receiving this printer, but having got it i am not sure i made the right choice. I bought it for a small business, where we print on ordinary paper for our own records, conqueror paper to be sent out to clients and envelopes. On reading that this printer is ‘pro’ and ‘multifunction’ one would assume that the printer will have at the very least a side-feed tray where you can manually feed whatever media you would like to print on in addition to a standard feed tray with ordinary paper. This printer has only one feed tray, and that is it. If you want to print on anything different than what is in the tray, you have to empty, and reload. I have never before seen a printer for corporate environment that did not have either multiple paper trays or a side feeding possibility. I am seriously considering sending the printer back, as i am sure it will last for many years, and my days will be just re-loading this printer over and over and over and over and over and over.

Good but slightly disappointed with features. I bought this printer as its one of only a few hp printers which are supported by apple’s airprint, which allows you to directly print from an iphone/ipad over wifi (via an router/access point). The print quality is the usual hp good printing, however with all its e-enabled printing and functionality and being a ‘pro’ model, i had expected it to be able to scan to email, like the other models (cm2320), but it only scans to usb or invoked directly from a directly connected pc assuming it has the software installed. For such a great little printer, it was disappointing that it lacked this function. I did download and try the ‘eprint apps which include google docs however after about an hour i gave up being able to scan to google docs’. Would have been nice to be able to scan directly via email to the iphone/ipad via email so we could enjoy the machine as a fully independent stand alone multi function printer/scanner/copier, rather than one that almost is.

This is a great machine for a reasonable price. If you are looking for printing graphics/ pictures this would be just fine. I highly recommend this product.

A nice bit of kit especially for how little we thought the cost was. The printer is nice and compact and looks professional enough to don any office or home. Could not believe that we took delivery the day after ordering too.

Should have kept this one instead of the canon,. Should have kept this one instead of the canon, nothing against it just thought id try canon. . Then regretted not having kept the hp.

      1. So far so good with this printer – the quality is good (printing and scanning) and it is easy to use. Cannot comment on how long the ink lasts or the durability of the printer as i have not had it for long enough, but very happy so far.

    1. Bought this as a replacement for an old laserjet and a canon all-in-one inkjet. We don’t print in colour that often, so the canon ink dried up after just printing just a few photos. The old hp had a parellel port so was no longer usable once the desktop gave up the ghost. So far this has been superb. Colour printing is better than the canon inkjet, and very quick compared to either of our previous printers. We can leave it switched on and it doesn’t seem to generate much heat or use much power (17 watts), but this means its instantly available if we want to print from the ipad or iphone. This was the reason we chose this printer over others, and it is very easy and quick to print using airprint. We suddenly find we’re printing much more at home. Setup was easy but slow, and now all our computers are able to print to it.
