Rated 5 out of 5 by from AdequateI've had this about 1 1/2-2 months. The touch screen barely works. You have to keep pushing on it to get it to copy. You scan from your desktop. You can't scan from the printer which isn't efficient if you do a lot of scanning. The quality is good . The feeders don't fee straight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality controlI have owned several Hewlett Packard MFC machines I'm looking to upgrade my current 10 year old unit I want to like this unit but with 30% one star reviews many mentioning connectivity problems that are similar to my computer and having to restart the printer often as it gets confused I wonder whether the problem is in the engineers that you hire or where you're having them built how do you expect people to have confidence in your equipment when it often has only three point something reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP managed to screw up a simple printerThis printer powers itself off or goes into sleep mode and cannot wake up when a fax comes in. You literally have to power the unit on. The power management cannot be disabled with current firmware.Once it actually prints, its good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paperjam straight out of box. Can't use.On initial setup, after installing paper, printer says there's a paper jam in Tray 2. Opened tray and don't see paper anywhere. Looking through paper path, I don't see anything. Error will not resolve, so printer is useless. Returning for replacement. Hopefully, just a bad unit.Other than that printer looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with LinuxI have a pure Linux network in my house, and was looking for a small, high quality all-in-one printer with Linux compatibility. This one fits the bill--and more. HPLIP found the printer and configured it on the first try, with no errors. Everything works perfectly from the network--printing and scanning. Print quality is excellent, and likewise for scan quality. Only a few years ago, having a color laser printer at home would have been unthinkable. It's now affordable and works perfectly with Linux.I couldn't be happier with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honest Opinion!I purchased the printer 2 months ago along with replacement cartridges. Set up was as easy as plugging in the printer and download the software.I have found the printer to be most effective when either printing or coping multiple copies. Just printing a single sheet seems to take longer for warm up and print. Cartridges are expenses at nearly $450 a set. I am hoping that the printer proves to be as durable as my last one of similar nature and size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI have had a 2025 Color Laserjet for almost 20 years. It still works perfectly, but it is too large for the downsized space I have. The MFPM281 has more features than the 2025 and is much smaller. It fits my space perfectly. As far as the printing goes, the color is exactly reproduced from the color in my pictures and publishing text. I am still learning how to use all of its features, but, so far, I am totally happy with my new purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PrinterI totally love this printer. The thing I like the most is the high-quality printing that is super fast. It`s also a great size for a small office. The touchscreen is very easy to use. The only downside would be the setup for the scan to folder option that needs to be done online. The instructions were not the greatest for Mac users so I am not currently able to use that function. I reached out to HP customer service who was not able to assist me with this issue and had transferred me to 3 different level reps. Overall it`s probably the best printer I have used.
