    This printer eats up ink, makes weird noises when it wants to. Not a good printer at all

  • Good print quality, poor overall performance

    I am a little disappointed in this model of HP printers. I have always had the best of luck with HP. This printer however while the quality of the print is excellent it prints very slow. Another item is the way it is constantly going into maintenance/cleaning mode in the middle of a print job. Making it even slower. Most HP printers have an option to change the frequency of the maintenance/cleaning cycle this one doesn't So while I recommend this printer I would only recommend it to people who are not in a hurry to see the finished product.

  • Great value for the price

    This is a very good printer -- easy to set up, excellent print quality. Much quieter than other laser printers I've used. My only complaint is the durability. My first printer gave out after about 2 years, it started printing with a solid yellow background. Very pretty, but really used up the toner cartridge. HP tech support was of no help whatsoever. I did find a local shop that was able to diagnose the problem. Unfortunately, it was more cost effective to replace than repair, so I'm now on printer #2. Still, a great value for the money.

  • Noisy printing

    The printer makes a loud noise during printing. I checked with someone locally and they said it was just the sound of the printer laser head. And nothing that could be done. Other than that, great printer.

  • Seems like a winner

    I have been using the HP451dw for several months now and have had very good luck with it. I would like to have a better driver for use with my old Win XP computer but my new Win 8.1 works perfectly. My printing needs are rather basic with only a small amount of picture printing. Anyway, so far I like this printer.
