Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am an HP LazerJet fan since early 1990's. This is my third HP LazerJet in almost 30 yeras! Two previous printers were reliable and long lasting, served me well. I love the new one and hope it is as reliable as my 2 previous HP LazerJets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M501dn Lasterjet Pro I really like this printer; I had an older HP printer that I was reluctant to give up but it finally broke down. I called HP, told them what model I had and asked for a similar printer. The salesman told me the comparable printer and in 10 minutes the deal was done. The printer arrived about a week later. It was easy to hook up to my network system and I was surprised how much better this printer was than my old HP. It prints really fast with great quality. I should not have waited as long as I did to replace my old HP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Misleading "Auto duplex printing" feature The third bullet point says "Auto duplex printing", but it is not, it is manual. It prints out the first set of pages which you have to put face down in tray one then it prints the other side. That is not "Auto duplex printing", it is manual printing. And that is a misleading feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from appreciate the speed, the print quality One complaint is that it does not handle legal length paper which is a problem for many documents. My fault as I never specified that feature when consulting your people to recommend a printer. Other than that, I have to say I am well pleased, especially relieved that now after years of never printing a single sheet using color had always to buy and replace color cartridges in the thieving inkjet printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my purposes As a self-employed writer, editor, desktop publisher, and writing teacher, I need a B&W laser printer for printing large quantities of drafts, and I hate having to add paper to the tray. When my workhorse LaserJet 4050 finally became unusable, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to find a B&W laser printer with a large tray at a reasonable price. I went with the M501, even though it's overkill for the quantity I print, because a 550-sheet tray came standard. It's also super fast. I occasionally need to print 2-sided, and the auto-duplexing is fabulous — wish I'd gotten that years ago. The footprint is exactly the same as the 4050, and it's not even as tall. I love the printer, but I knocked a point off of performance for a couple minor annoyances -- every so often, the printer thinks it's out of paper when it's not (something the 4050 never, ever did), and I have to open and close the tray. I also find it harder to load paper. And when I use the auto-duplexing, pages sometimes push other pages out of the output tray. I finally figured out that a little plastic piece that flips up at the end of the output tray is (I guess) intended to keep the pages in the tray, but that piece is not identified in the drawings of the printer and not mentioned anywhere in the manual I downloaded (since, of course, nothing comes with a manual anymore). (There's at least one other part on the printer that is not identified anywhere, and even though I apparently don't need to do anything with it, it still drives me nuts not knowing what it is or does.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer. Fastest time to first page. One of the quickest printers I've ever seen. Not the fastest in pages per minute, but the quickest to spit out the first page. Lovely. Low cost per page, easy maintenance, reliable. Built from thin plastic, that's the only downside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor Support - Email to printer does not work I bought this brand new, followed all directions to a 'T' but the email address HP provided does not work and bounces back saying HP.COM security settings do not allow delivery. The printer operates Ok but these extra features are not usable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not like previous HP printers. Don't buy Bought two model M501 to replace two other HP printers, models 4200 and 3015. These weigh half as much which tells you something. Why I wouldn't buy again is they don't print landscape. Checked everywhere on the net and these is not a practical fix. Emailed HP but have never had a response. Have used heavy duty HP printers for the last 25 years and this shortcoming is absolutely unbelievable for any printer company to allow a product out without testing or without contacting a customer immediately with an update. Feel like they are a waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from null This printer has mostly worked for two years printing correctly large .pdf document files (many over 175 pages) that contain both letter and legal sized pages (the printer switching from letter to legal and back to letter again, letter from the bottom tray, legal from the top tray). Then this year the printer randomly started to print bizarre ASCII characters during the printing of many documents. I updated to the latest HP printer drivers. I have Windows 10. The printer printed a few document files out correctly and then it started printing the same random ASCII characters on subsequent files. I have collected a stack about a foot high of papers that the printer printed random ASCII characters on. I have been able to print out some of these document files by printing the pages out in groups of five pages, and quickly stopping the printer when the printer starts to print the random ASCII characters. One time it took me an hour and a half to print out a 200 page document file. I have used both Acrobat Reader as well as Foxit Reader to print the documents from, and the problem occurs equally with both pieces of software. I work as a notary and signing agent and it is common for me to print out 400 pages for a signing appointment. These printing problems are causing me to loose income.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid printer - exceptional value. If you're looking for a solid performing, black and white printer - this is it. It's easy to set up and all of our machines recognized it on the network. We have a mixed environment with PC's and Macs - no issues at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer for the price. Bought to replace a LJ 4050. Just as fast and a fraction of the size.
