"Great - better than 3600n"4.5 starson by blaze_80
Pros: duplexer standard, quick, prints well on different paper types
Cons: noisy, frequent calibration
Summary: Overall I like this printer very much. Having used a 3600n (same model as dn but no duplexer and less ram) The DN's speed and print quality is actually very much better then the 3600n.
Graphics quality is great, very quick prints, contrary to other reviews of the 3600n it handles large PDF's well. Makes use of the extra ram over the base model.
Transparancy printing is very slow if you specify transparancy as paper type in the driver, but much better quality than leaving at defult setting.
Can be noisy at times and performs self calibration fairly frequently, also found that it needs a full calibration about once a month to correct misalignment of colours. Have also found when printing multiple copies of a document like a newsletter with a solid colour masthead at the top of the page that every so often a partial strip of colour is missed at the top left hand edge of a few pages.
Printing of photos is great for a laser, but quality on HP recomended glossy laser paper is worse than on a generic matt premium copier paper.
One of the quickest printers at duplexing I've used. Would like to see standard paper tray go up to 500 sheets so a full ream can be loaded at once.
Would recommend for a small office who wants quick colour for business documents and in-house newsletters.
