Good

ProLooks good, prints fast,

ConsToo expensive for heavy use

This is another piece of kit from work that weve been using now for about 8 months. The poor thing has been dumped in the computer suite as a workhorse for the hoards of print happy kids who pass through it all day. Alas, it has failed the task - through no real fault of its own. We have another...

Conspoor print speed - noise

I do a lot of work from home and needed a new printer that would let me print off reports in colour quickly, for a fairly cheap price and it had to be reasonable compact so not to take up much space in my tiny work area at home. Having always used Hewlett Packard printers everywhere I worked...

It's a shame that the Laserjet 2600 is so unreliable as the print quality is excellent. Our experience is as follows: First of all, printing on anything but blank 80gsm paper causes background toner smearing all over the page. We have tried many different types of card stock and glossy papers...

ConsExpensive refills, bulky machine.

I have had my HP 2600n for around two months now, and originally bought for small business use, though I have mostly used for personal use at the moment. On arrival I was quite shocked on the size; and as it is situated at home it doe's take up quite a chunk of my office/bedroom. But of course...

Proa neat little printer that gets the job done

ConsA little noisy and slow

Proexelent quality prints

Consbit slow

I have had this printer for some time now and I find it prints to a very high standard even on the economy and toner save settings. This printer is the most reliable printer I've had because other printers have lost quality with age even after a few months but the 2600n is still producing prints...

Yeap, they are slow. They also cannot print through windows terminal services even though it is networked. In addition, the fuser is not a consumerable item which means if you get a paper jam in the fuser or the area near the paper output, you will need to get the whole printer serviced or get a new printer. Also, you need to use 100gsm paper otherwise, expect the constant paper jamming problem. Go figured, with the amount of distance the paper travels you would expect the paper jam.
