Customer ratings and reviews for HP LaserJet Pro 400 color Printer M451dw

Rated 4 out of 5 by Satisfied Love all the features!!!!But it would be more awesome if they have scanner or copier!!!!!.That's the only disappointed for not having a scanner or copier comes with it for the price of the printer. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy with this purchase (HP Laserjet Pro 400 M451dw) is what all printers in this value should live up to. I have no issues with it at all. thank you HP January 27, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by this product stinks To whom it may concern I consider HP products as some of the best , and use them in my architectural office for many years but........my experience to date with this product has me wanting to send it back, I have no idea as to how to load the paper in the trays "properly" and your pamphlet shows nothing, I went and called the HP number given only to wait on the phonr for 35 minutes and then get a women who had no idea of the product, I am sure this will fall on deaf ears but this makes me think before secifying your product again November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect color printer I've used many black/white laser printers over the years, I've used several inkjet printers too. This is my first color laser printer. I'm very impressed by the quality and speed of printing. I'm not so impressed with the software installation using the software-from-the-printer option. It failed (Windows 7 PC). However, the installation from the CD worked perfectly. All is well that ends well. September 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Downloaded latest software from support website Didn't work initially, there was a recurring error: error 79 turn off then turn on Worked fine after downloading latest software (new software allowed firm upgrade as well) July 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product performed as expected Delivery was surprisingly quick after placing the order. The wireless features were easy to setup and was recognized by all users. It is hard to get the "eprint" feature going but with practice, it worked fine. The hook up with the tablet worked out. I strongly suggest downloading the user manual because you can figure how to use the buttons on the printer. if you upgrade the memory, you will need to read the user manual to get the memory recognized. It is not difficult but you need to see where on the menu you do it. The retaining clips to hold the memory chip in place are very fragile and will break. I think the clips would have been better in metal than the plastic. The cartridges are easy to replace but you will need room to pull out the cartridge drawer/rack.The problem with the automatic duplexing feature being the default was not a default on my printer. You will have to open the menu to access this feature but you will have to turn it off after using it. The menus that I am referring to are in the software that is accessed by your computer. All users through the wireless connections can change the setup. Also as with all new electronic equipment, especially printers with toner cartridges, you have to get used to the initial burn smell and that will fade. Enjoy! April 17, 2013
