Rated 5 out of 5Â by burknator Perfect in size and great color prints
So, I bought this from the HP Store Thursday. It arrived today (Saturday) Incredible fast shipping. I was not expecting it until next week.
It is to replace my 4500 workhorse. I love that old, EXPENSIVE printer. This M251 is simply incredible. Within 15 minutes, I was unpacked and printing a test page. Then stuck the cd I for wireless connectivity. Another few minutes I was printing. Fantastic color. I rely on accuracy in color.. In a word, excellent printer for me, excellent FREE shipping, good deal on the toners when purchased with the printer. Get them if you can. Yes, they are expensive. You can find some cheapies on Ebay but I have never used nothing but HP Toner. I'm happy.

This printer does everything I need it to do. It prints in color, wireless, and on demand. I have only had it up and going for a month now but so far so good. I also use this same model in a couple places in the workforce and have not had a problem in the year they have been on the floor. Toner is costly but considering my usage, I don't look at buying toner more than once a year, making it a good buy. But I have the luxury of color capability in a laserjet printer when I need it. Otherwise to conserve, I can print in grey scale or black and white. Again, this unit is wireless so I have it set up in an area neutral for all those in the house that need to access it. Considering this is a unit produced for primarily for business use, hopefully HP will continue to make toner cartridges for it later down the road. Hopefully I can get years of service out of it.

The HP LaserJet Pro 200 is a solid wireless laser printer.
1) Excellent quality printouts
2) Fast printouts--14 ppm
3) Easy wireless setup
4) Great 3-1/2" touchscreen
1) Does not do automatic duplex (double sided). (Other HP printers at this price point do duplex!)
2) Slow printouts when copying Internet pages (Nearly 1-1/2 minutes for first page.)
3) Starter toners only do about 800 pages
Overall the HP LaserJet Pro 200 is a great printer providing you do not need duplex printing or need fast speeds for Internet printouts. It's a solid printer that does a great job.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BaronRojo Almost All I could Want, and Even More I Don't
This is my first Laser Printer EVER (and a Color Laser Printer at that!) after 17 years of computing with Inkjet Printers. (I still have one and intend to keep using it.) The only thing I could desire that this printer doesn't have is Duplex Printing, but the way HP designed it Manual Duplex Printing couldn't be any easier -- plus the Driver Software has a feature enabling manual duplex printing of multipage documents easily. I also like the compact size and shape. It looks a bit lightweight for business purposes, but for my occasional use it couldn't be better.
I have just about no use for other attractive features like Wireless Printing, Network-Enabled Printing or Web Printing (a simple USB connection is fine for me), but the reader might find them far more desirable. The color touchscreen is pretty and replaces a lot of controls (although the touchscreen is finicky), but I prefer an elaborate display on my monitor allowing precise and detailed control from my computer. The front-panel USB port for walk-up printing is designed to accept a thumb drive and will probably not recognize your camera or even a flash-card reader just because it has a USB connection, so unless you want to transcribe your printing to a thumb drive you may not want to use this port any more than I will; I prefer the control my computer gives me over my output anyway.
But a full-page print of a 16MP digital photo comes out looking magazine-ready, even on plain paper, and that's what counts with me.
This printer installed its own driver software as soon as I plugged it in and booted up. The included CDROM proved completely unneeded. That's a first for me, though it's probably the Way of the Future.

My old HP laser color printer finally got pretty sick after 7 years, so I decided to replace it rather than have it repaired. It was due for three new toner cartridges; hence not buying them almost paid for the Pro 200. I immediately set about printing 150 Christmas cards with lots of color, and it did a rapid, great job, Very pleased
