are HP laserjets still great?

I have been using H-P laser printers for the past 15 years or so, and the ones I have had are great. Are they still great? Have they gone downhill?

I use a 2015 dn for double-sided black and white, it is just a great trooper. This one is wearing out after 120,000 pages and I thought I would give it to someone who does light usage. I print thousands of pages at a time for educational stuff, workshop.

The 2015 is not made anymore, and I am thinking about getting something just like it.

2055 dn monochrome (d stands for double-sided printing) for $380
or a
3015 dn for $580

thanks for any and all opinions and experiences and recommendation.


I also have a 2025 dn color laser printer for double-sided good-looking color.

The drivers are always flawless. Apple sends new ones occasionally.

My 10 year old LaserJet 2100n is still going strong. Can't vouch for the new models.

HP's engines are good, but their plastic shells are getting cheaper and more fragile.

And their drivers suck. But it's fairly easy to substitute a Gutenprint driver.

...

Don't buy their crummy inkjets.

Yes. I get GREAT results buying low page count workgroup printers on ebay or craigslist.

2055, 2200, 2300, etc.


Be sure to get one that duplexes--you'll never go back.
