Three (3) months back, we needed a Color printer for our home office and searched all type of printers on internet and decided to purchase Hp colored laser jet 2600n, basically because of TWO main reasons. First, because we have already used Hp three in one with printer, copier and scanner and were really very happy and satisfied with its performance. Secondly due to its reasonable price, cost effectiveness and a good established brand name. Yes I do agree that Hp is a very established and reputable name or brand in term of quality products.
Hp color laser printer (brand: Color Laser jet 2600n) is a compact device. It requires a reasonably smaller area to be placed in any office. It is a simple user friendly device. It can easily be used BY ANYONE with minimum knowledge of the device. It doesn't have any sensitive or complicated function to get confused with. It is also very light in weight and can easily be moved anywhere. It's definitely a low cost color laser printer with good quality print performance. Printer can handle a range of papers from envelopes to plain or glossy papers to transparencies with remarkable bright lively colors and clear black text. Laser printer paper tray has the capacity of almost 200 plain sheets. It also has a 2nd tray option which you can add to your printer depending upon your usage. So far I found the Hp color laser jet 2600n a very helpful machine in terms of large paper loading capacity as well as good quality prints.
Though I have noticed some short coming of Hp colored laser jet 2600n and faced some small problems but nothing major. First it's print or images quality on glossy paper are not as good as on plain ordinary paper and another thing was its speed which was not very impressive .Due to its comparatively slow speed it can not be recommended for offices or groups where there are large number of employees. It will function excellently well for small offices but not for large work groups /offices.
Overall Hp color laser jet 2600n is an affordable and easy to use device with good printing quality with an inexpensive ink cartridge. It is most suitable and recommended for small set up or home offices without any major drawbacks. It can easily be refilled for a much lesser cost than the most other cartridges. The print quality from a refilled cartridge is just as good as the original one. The Hp colored laser jet 2600n is also a NOISELESS PRINTER.
In short I am really very happy with Hp colored laser jet 2600n and find it a good value for money.
