Customer ratings and reviews for HP LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dn

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great upgrade from my HP Laserjet 3380 First of all, I was in love with my HP LaserJet 3380, which I bought around 10 years ago. That thing never gave me any real problems, and I used it daily in my business. However, I had a LaserJet 3330 at my home which developed an incurable case of the "scanner error" problem after 12 years of use, so I decided to upgrade my 3380 rather than push my luck. I consider 10 years with the same printer to be a really good run. I am very impressed with the LaserJet Pro 400 MFP, which I am now using daily in my business. Having just set it up today, here are my initial impressions: 1) Much faster: It barely takes 3 seconds after pressing print in my word processor before the page is shooting out of the printer. This thing is crazy fast. My old 3380 took around 10 seconds. The document feeder is also much faster & noticeably so than the older printer. 2) Easier installation: This was truly plug and play, no CD installation required on a PC. I had no problems whatsoever with blank pages or black pages or lines on the page that some other people have described. 3) Noisier: The machine is much faster, but it's also a bit louder than my old 3380. After a print job is done, there is also some fan noise for about 20 seconds. It's not loud enough to be annoying, but it's noticeable. Personally, I prefer the speed increase and think it offsets any noise issue. 4) Good looking machine: It's smaller than my 3380 and looks great, but I do wish they made it in white or grey rather than all black. This is a minor issue, though. I also wish it had an open-access envelope feeder, rather than making me open the door, but this isn't a deal breaker for me. It still appears better-built than competing multi function machines out there, some of which are ridiculously flimsy (i.e. not built to last). 5) Cost effective: I priced out the cost per page when buying the extended toner cartridge, and it's among the most affordable printers out there. It's also cheaper per page than my old 3380, which I also priced out. Color me happy about that. Hopefully this review helps you make a decision. I don't think you'll go wrong with this machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GREAT.....SO FAR I have only had it a week, but so far it prints, copies, scans, and faxes very good, much better than the HP LaserJet 3380 it replaced. March 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ADC FEEDER WORKS PERFECT-USE FIRMWARE UPDATE use the firmware update on site and it will make the ADF work like magic. Mine was blank, as soon as I did the firmware update, perfect print. So far an excellent printer. I have no clue what all the fuss was or is about since HP did the firmware update. I tested the scanning today and it works perfect, easy to save using the save feature just name your file where to save and name of document and you are done. January 5, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by The copier doesn't perform I am getting a refund for my replacement of HP LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dn. The copier function produces copies with lines, as soon as it is installed. My second try took 11 days for the lines to appear. There is a firmware fix, written 9/4/2012, but it doesn't work either. I really like the unit, but need the ability to make a copy without black lines. September 24, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Defective units Just received my second HP LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dn. The first units automatic document feeder didn't work. The second unit has a bad scanner which produces black lines on all scans and copies. I'd say HP has a quality control problem which needs work. September 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Product!! I highly recommend this printer for small business use. We have 7 employees using it in a networked environment. It is connected directly to our router via ethernet. It was very easy to set up including the scan to email and scan to folder settings. It literally only took me 30 minutes to set the entire printer up and the first page out setup took 15 minutes. It is very fast at faxing and scanning. September 7, 2012
