Customer ratings and reviews for HP LaserJet Pro 400 Printer M401n

Rated 2 out of 5 by arrived fast On the good side, the printer arrived almost next day. On the negative side, as another reviewer mentioned, HP confuses purchasers in regard to this printer being black and white. The fact that this was not a color printer was not evident in the HP online description. Until it arrived and I opened the box, I thought I had bought a color printer; the model numbers HP assigns are very similar so they make it easy to get confused. However since I got a good deal, and needed a monochrome printer, I decided to keep it. Seems to work well. Fast. I like the power saver features. I hope it will be a long term asset for my home office. May 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good HP machine. I bought this as a replacement for my ancient Laserjet 1200 which gave out a year or two after I thought it was going to last forever. This one appears to be just as good; time will tell. It certainly prints much, much better. I like the one page at a time feed. My only complaints are 1) after you punch print on the screen you also have to punch the print button on the printer (this may be a setting; if so, I couldn't find a way to change it.) 2) It's very easy to push one of two other buttons that are right next to the print button. 3) When buying I had the impression that HP is trying to keep it a secret that this is a black and white machine. March 10, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good But Sensitive Good printer for the price. Easy to set up. Tends to jam more than I'm used to but not to the point that I'm ready to trash it. March 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost Perfect Pros include smaller footprint, really fast printing, clear documents (we do black/white only), successful installation by a novice like me, easily operated separate tray for printing envelopes special papers, etc., and easy network connections. The only cons are the small capacity paper tray and what I have come to recognize as HPs "good but somewhat confusing" installation instructions. Overall, we are very pleased with this machine wishing only that it had a larger paper tray. February 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Installed easily on PC and Mac The printer installed easily using the HP website for driver downloads. It prints good quality pages and is especially nice to use for printing from the iPad. November 1, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointing Our company has always bought HP products due to their reliability. However the most recent purchase, a 401N purchased 14 months ago for use as a check printer has already stopped working. HP should continue to sell the old reliable models, rather than put out new ones that do not last. The price of the 401N is good, but not if you have to buy a new one every year. October 1, 2013
