Customer ratings and reviews for HP LaserJet Pro 400 color Printer M451dw

Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything is great I have hard time to understand WPA, WPS, etc. I never notice these until this printer. I had to call HP support. They told me that my router is WPA. They bypassed it. The printer is working great. Later I will get a WPS Router. Then reinstall. Thank you. July 4, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good unit One warning: this sucker is *heavy*. I had a color LaserJet prior to this (logic board died), and it was lighter *with* an extra paper tray. LIft with your legs -- I'm not kidding. The setup is easy enough, though when you're using the front panel for the first time (or after a while), you'll be guessing a lot which way the menu structure goes. Some menu titles in the front panel configuration could have been better thought out. Compared to my previous LaserJet, this one spits the printed pages forward, as opposed to in the back, which is good. It seems to take up less space, as well, and I hope the auto-sleep will save me a few cents on electricity compared to the old one. The toner trays look puny, so I'm curious how long they will actually last. But the printer is quick, compact, and easy to setup and use. Just remember to lift with your legs. June 14, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Printer has good features This printer has really good features. Print quality is excellent. It is easy to use. The toner is quite expensive compared to my last hp LaserJet. My biggest complaint is that I can't get it to print on one side only if I print more than one page. For example, if I am printing pictures for a photo album, I cannot send more than one page of pictures or it will print on both sides. I have went in to turn the double sided print off, but it prints on both sides anyway. My last printer had the double sided printing on it and it was extremely easy to use. This one is set up the same way, but doesn't want to work correctly. It is for that reason only that I give it 3 stars. June 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extrememely capable product. A smart looking, capable printer which produces exceptional products. Easy to set up and use. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a new printer. May 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Printer The printer is excellent for our small office use. The setup instructions for wireless setup were hard to follow but once I called and received support the printer worked great. Everyone in the office can print wirelessly and quickly to this printer. An added bonus is the ability to print from anywhere via HPePrint and to print from my iPad and iPhone. The print quality is GREAT. I would recommend this product. May 7, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Takes some getting used to. So far the printer works very well. The prints are beautiful, the machine is quiet (relatively) and setup was a cinch. There are however a few quirks. For one, you must recheck the two-sided setting before every print; the printer likes to decide on its own whether to print two-sided or not. When this function is activated, it works flawlessly. Also, I have on occassion tried printing every other page and that does not work at all. If you use Windows 7 (64) as I do, you may want to consider another printer if you will need to use these types of functions very much. This is my second LaserJet and the first one did not like Windows 7 (64) either. I never could get the duplex printing to function, even after lots of back and forth with HP. Maybe a future driver upgrade will fix it all. I hope so. April 20, 2012
