Product Reviews
HP LaserJet Pro M521dn Monochrome ($899-$200 savings=$699, Ends 2/28) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like HP printers. This printer is an excellent all around machine. We use copy scan to email print and fax on these. Users complain about incoming faxes printing slow, but other than that this is a solid product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad MFP - but there are better We are testing several MFP type printers to put in our assistants offices. This model is a good size, not too large, but not so tiny you can't print a ton of documents to it before it gives up the ghost...aka - the duty cycle.It would probably be the one we chose had the ADF scanning not been limited to 300 dpi. We have a nameless few that want 400 or higher and there just isn't a setting for that when scanning through the ADF. Speaking of scanning, it's a bit slow in the ADF to pull docs through, process and get them to the destination. Not half as bad as the M527 which was just a full on pig...like scan, go get some coffee, come back and ohh wait...there it is, finally!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I expected from mid priced HP This product was purchased to replace an aging fax machine and a HP 4100 Laser Jet printer. Bonus for me with a built in scanner. It works just like my other HP printer, same noise level. Only a couple things bother me. When printing picture heavy pdf files, it will print page 1, wait ten seconds then page 2 spits out, wait ten seconds, etc... Not fun when you are printing 25 pages like that. Could use more internal memory. Second thing I do not like is the touch screen. All in all easy to use, except when manually typing in fax numbers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multifunction device. Highly configurable print and scan options. Browser or Telnet config, SNMP plays well with Spiceworks. Fast printing, reliable, scan to email, scan to network share.
Date published: 2014-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great printer for the money. We use two of them here in our offices and they hardly ever go down. We use the full feature set here; print, copy, fax, and scan. The only problem I have seen is it does not support batch scanning or scanning multiple documents into separate files. For the Epicor Eclipse users; it works great as well.I added the additional tray to one and the install was a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lower cost MFP We needed a printer that could fax, copy and scan to email, print at a fairly high speed with a fairly high monthly usage at a fairly low price. We added the paper tray and it is taking the place of a Sharp copier at a much lower price.The initial toner cartridge is quite small, so make sure to purchase a replacement with it or you will run out of toner.
