The LaserJet Pro P1606dn Network Monochrome Laser Printer from HP outputs up to 26 pages/minute. The printer's 600 dpi resolution provides quality text and graphic printing for small or home offices. The printer's auto duplex printing provides a way to effortlessly cut your paper consumption by up to 50%.

The printer features a 2-tray, 300-sheet total input capacity. The 2nd tray provides the option of keeping a 2nd, commonly used media type such as labels or photo paper in the printer for easy switching between the 2. Alternatively, the 2nd tray can be used to supplement the standard input tray for larger print jobs.

In addition to a USB port, the printer features Ethernet connectivity and an embedded print server so you can easily share the printer with other users on your local network. Don't worry about keeping your data secure; the printer's built-in security measures ensure your proprietary data stays out of the wrong hands. Not an IT expert? HP's easy network setup guide leads you through the process of setting up, sharing, and securing your printer.

    I needed a fast printer and a printer that prints on both sides of a sheet automatically. This printer does all that. It was a simple setup, using HP Smart Install, for a network of five computers. Printer arrived on time as promissed and in good condition. No usb cable, but is was not needed for network installation. HP with this printer does not provide a full toner cartrige, just a starter one with less than half toner in it. That certainly is not a plus and does not speak well of their business practices. Installation instructions are skimpy, and there is no printed user manual. There is a user manual on a CD and HP website.

          Comments about HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn Network Monochrome Laser Printer:

          great printer. Very compatible with Google Cloudyou can also send file to be printed directly from your email. Only negatives are it prints a little bit too dark and the adjustment in the printer properties is very limited.to print with use of your email was a little bit tricky setting up. Instructions were not too clear

          The P1606dn is an excellent, reliable printer, perfect for a small home office if one needs only a black and white laser printer. It can print on both sides. Fast and efficient. Not too big. Easy to install on an ethernet network through a hub. No issues working with OSX Mavericks which will "find" the printer and set it up with one or two mouse clicks. Windows drivers on the supplied installation CD. Only drawback is that it is a little noisy when printing, but that's not really an issue and it's so fast that the disruption is minimal. Set up is easy but no printed installation literature is supplied. You follow the step by step illustrations.

            I use the product for a personal consulting business. It is useful for printing reports, both sngle and double sided. Economical versus an ink-jet.
            The small footprint is useful because I don't have a lot of desk space.

              This printer is easy to install. It has prints fast and has great print quality. The duplexing feature comes in handy and helps save on toner and paper. If you are used to a paper tray, you will quickly get used to the front open tray. You can see the level of paper w/o opening a tray. Would recommend. Works with Windows 8.

                The printer is just as reviewed: fairly compact and lightweight, easy to set up and works well. I am a graduate student and was looking for a printer for the home that would network and duplex to save paper on notes, and this one seems to work like a charm. Would highly recommend as an affordable home office solution.

                The only drawback I would mention is that the printer requires a USB connector to plug into the printer's Type B Male port, and unlike most printer packing, this one does not include it. You will also need an ethernet cable for networking if you choose to use it wirelessly and will need to purchase this separately.However, despite having the extra cost of two cords, the overall cost is still far below similar options.

                There was a time many years ago when I swore that I would never buy another HP printer - perhaps some remember the nagging, defective software. Well I have changed my mind. This printer is brilliant. It is very small, very fast, it sets itself up on your network, and works flawlessly. It prints fast, sharp, and quietly. It turns itself on, prints, and turns itself off in seconds. I have another very large, old color laser printer. It is OK but it is so slow that I can get a cup of coffee while it thinks about printing. For the P1606dn I can't even stand up before it has finished. Oh and there is no nagging!!

                  I mostly print documents my students (11th grade H. S.) will use -- so, yeah, they'll be photocopied, thus color is of little use to me. If I want to print photos, I'll let Flickr or Snapfish do it. I just wanted somethin' to get Interwebz docs into the real world, and this does it admirably. It's almost instantaneous, the quality is better than I expected (gradient photos looks really swell), and it took less than 1 minute to set up. Less than a minute. At this point, we should just surrender. Technology wins.

                    Easy setup, Fast printing and reasonable construction. E-printing is a great feature.
                    I disagree that it's flimsy and noisy. I have a DNP dye sub printer that's much noisier.

                      Great printer that does just about everything a person needs but it has to be hard-wired to a router by an ethernet cable (not supplied). Once connected and configured, I can print wirelessly from two different laptops (both MACs) and an iPhone. It works perfectly when I'm within range of the router. Setting up the email address was fairly simple but I did need Customer Support for help. When I'm on the go, I send documents to the printer via the email address and it's waiting for me when I get home.

                      This printer is used in a home office situation with 3 workstations and a server. The printer is both quiet and very fast. Unlike other laser printers I have had, this one has instant response with no warm up time to print. We don't have a lot of print volume so time will tell as to the printer's reliability and life span.

                        If you are looking for a basic BW laser printer with no extra bells and whistles, this is a great option. It is FAST. And it duplexes.

                          This printer is a little work-horse. I use it to print large numbers of manuscript pages on a daily basis. It is reliable, easy to use, and the toner lasts for a long time. I liked this printer so much that I purchased a second one for when I am working at my mountain home.

                              We bought this printer for our daughter for her college. The installation to MacBook Pro was very easy. We did try to print it a few pages. It printed very fast. You have to purchase a USB, it does not come with the printer.
