great printer for the cost

This is a great printer given the features although like everything else there are a couple things that I wish it had, for example scanning can only be done from the flatbed, the feeder is for faxing, either that or I haven't figured that out yet. In general however, it's great, hooked up to network easily and able to print remotely (phone, off site) without a hitch. It's fast, quiet and very capable and for the features and quality can't beat the price more so considering the low cost per page from my experience so far.

I made a mistake when I purchased this product as I did not realize it only printed in black. However, I had another HP printer that did print in black and color. I had a serviceman install both printers and everything should work out OK. I do wish that a user manual had been included with the purchases. I had trouble discovering how to copy and how to enlarge or shrink. I plan on writing HP for user manuals if they exist.

HP products are the best!

I have not had a chance to use all the futures of this printer. However, if they work as well as my last HP Laser Printer that lasted eight years I will give this M1217 Laser Printer 3 GOLD STARS. It would be very helpful if a pictorial page with the icons of the M1217 were listed specifically in the contents.

Good, but tricky to modify settings

All of the print and scan features work nicely as expected. The only issue I've had is that at one point I needed to change my wireless password, because I'd reconfigured my router, and the software that comes with the printer is heavily geared toward just the one initial installation. It took a fair amount of digging to figure out how to make this simple configuration change without over-installing the drivers and such.

High ink cost

Machine is great, but ink cartridge is way below expected usage. Have gone through 4 cartridges in the time I went through one on my old machine and the cost of the cartridge although cheaper is still higher than my old HP.
