Fantastic printer, replaced a 2025 (as others have). Fantastic printer, replaced a 2025 (as others have), swapped the spot it sat in, used the same cables, took off the old printer from 2 pc’s, switched it on, added the printer to two pc’s (i windows & 1 mac). Bought from i love going shopping on amazon, we run a holiday lodge business in the highlands of scotland, so delivery can be so-so. Not in this case under 24hrs from order to delivery. . Buy one, you wont regret it.
Great printer, excellent quality printing. . A great printer with excellent quality printing, however, you need to bear in mind that if you intend to use hp original toner when the originals run out it will cost you more than the original printer for the set of four. Here are the specifications for the HP LaserJet Pro 400 M451dn:

Nice and quick, great colour photos, shame it doesn’t have a wireless networking card. Bought to replace an aging samsung clp-510 colour laser that had started producing unusably streaky output (fair enough after nearly 9 years service). Easy to set up, although i’d recommend configuring the installation process to omit all the usual undesired ‘extra value’ dross (no, i don’t want to change my browser search bar thanks). Slightly surprised it didn’t have a wireless network card, so i put it on a wired connection into my home hub, with a fixed ip. The installer successfully ‘found’ the printer but i had to tweak my wireless gateway slightly before i could actually print to it: the key was to enable ‘upnp’ and ‘multimedia streams’. Up and running the printer is pleasingly quick and precise, but what’s really impressed me is the results with colour photos. Things have clearly moved on a lot since i bought the samsung so many years ago :-).
A laser printer for home use. I’ve used hp printers for years at work. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. The printer is 20+ kg so make sure you sit it on a proper office table and not one used for playing cards on or for camping. Replacing the cartridges will be a bit of a cough but from experience its better to put in the genuine cartridges. I’ve tried the cloned ones and they leak or only last 2/3 as long. I think if you are disciplined on what you print off instead of just printing everything then printing costs are acceptable. (just look in the workplace)how much paper is recycled every day and ask yourself if you wre paying for the printer ink would you think twice before pressing ‘print’?.

- Solid well built work horse colour printer
Good quality printer at a fair price.
I bought this printer to replace an ageing epson inkjet – much more expensive of course, but i hoped for better, more trouble-free use. Setting up was trivially easy and the printer connected straightaway to pcs and ipads both ethernet and wirelessly without any fuss. The airprinting from the ipads was refreshingly simple. I chose a fixed ip address for convenience as i have a linux setup too and the printer has never hiccuped in connectivity since i installed it. On-line reviews like to quibble about clarity of vanishingly small print but i can tell you that even on 6-point, black and white text is very sharp. Colour printing is similarly clear and well aligned. Photographs on glossy paper don’t measure up to inkjet quality for richness of colour but even on plain paper they are surprisingly good, much better than the washy-washy efforts of early colour lasers.
