· Prints fast
· Duplex printing
Jessica Baker – Over the years, I have sort of adapted to printers of all speeds. That said, when I got a promotion to management level, I felt I needed something faster. When the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Printer arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by its speed as well as quiet efficiency and discount printer toner
Stuart Hughes – Each time I have to print brochures, it tends to be a hassle to print one side, and then the other. In fact, I can't even begin to count how many times I have messed up and printed things upside down in relation to each other. The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Printer is like a miracle to me.
What users don't like about the product
· Expensive for just a printer
· Poor quality
Abbey Gomez – I wasn't really in the market for a multi-function device, but feel I didn’t get back my money’s worth because of the price of the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Printer. Now that I don't have a fax machine and copier all in one unit, I truly wish I had chosen better.
John Watkins -- Over the years, I've seen a few train wrecks in terms of print quality. The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Printer definitely fits that category, and much worse given the paper jams.
We tend to agree with consumers that value, speed and durability when it comes to the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Printer is decent. That said, if you are looking for crisper printing, or feel you will want a fax or scanner later on, it will be better to look to other devices. Fortunately, HP has many that you can choose from that will easily exceed what you will get from the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Printer.
