Pros Fast printout, print duplexer works great
Cons Overpriced toner cartridge, needs lower paper tray
Summary I have owned the Hp laserjet's 2,3,4,4v,3si,and the hp 4si, and this is the best laserprinter of the lot by far. I can't believe how off the mark the cnet review on this laserjet printer is, the review from pcmagazine is much more accurate.
A friend from work sells PC hardware as a side business and he has sold a few of these printers and his Customers have had NO problems. I mainly got this printer for the duplexer, and that works great. The print speed is fast even with graphics. You can add the network card to this printer if need arises. I will be adding more memory to this printer. I also like the backlit display on this printer, it is really readable. Be sure and use remanufactured toner cartridges as the OEM ones are overpriced. I paid $570 for thsi printer and I am real pleased with it.
I recomennd the purchase of this Laserjet printer.
Pros Look, Speed, Network Integration,
Cons Multiple firmware updates,
Summary • As before with it's predecessors the HP 2100, 2200, and 2300, the 2400 series provides a great medium duty laser printer at a good price. As usual the pricing is higher than it would be for a comparable competitors laser printer, but when considering the long run, the cost per page is lower, and so is the maintenance.
• The inclusion of an LCD screen is becoming standard on HP's mid-range printers, and does help with global settings and configuration.
• I've set up a few of these 2400 series, the only problem I have encountered is that all of them have been behind on the firmware code. This is simple enough to remedy through the driver

"Fantastic printer"on by nursedude
Pros Super fast printing with USB 2.0,,,,Not ONE paper jam to date, excellent printout, love the instant on technology, feeds even small envelopes flawlessly! Even has duplex printing.
Cons Design of case could be a little sleeker
Summary Excellent printer. I would definitely recomment it !
Pros High quality, fast, reliable
Cons None for me
Summary I run a small business and have used the HP LaserJet 2420d for two years. I've had absolutely no problems with it. The print quality is excellent, it's fast, the toner cartridge lasts a very long time. This printer has been perfectly reliable over two years of daily use.
IMHO, there are so many bad reviews for printers here on CNET, because those people who encounter problems with their printers are much more likely to post a review. On the other hand, people for whom the product worked perfectly don't necessarily feel compelled to post their positive rating. IMHO there may have been a thousand satisfied users for every 1 user who encountered a problem, but only the person who encountered a problem posted their low rating. So, the user ratings quite likely get skewed.
"Rugged printer"on by D-Smoke
Pros Rugged design, fast output, easy to use and set up.
Cons None for me.
Summary This computer works very well for me because it is rugged and fast. I had and wore out a cheaper unit from Brother (a 5150d) that just wasn't up to the task. I needed a duplexing printer that would hold up, and so far, this one has done the job extremely well. The cartridge life is a lso much longer than the Brother's. It wasn't as cheap as some others, but it does the job. Highly recommended.
