    HP M521dn reviews

    LaserJet Pro M521dn All-in-One Printer is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pros and cons I've been using this product for several months. It seems quite reliable. The printing quality is good, at least this early in its lifecycle. You probably already know about the cost of the ink. I use it as a fax as well and that seems to be working well. I recommend however that you not take into account any rebates offered. The rebate company has been extremely difficult to work with and has denied the rebate. Interestingly they asked me to send the UPC Labels again (but they are no longer on the box as they were sent the first time). So ignore any rebate in your decision to purchase this item.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Highly inefficient and frustrating machine I have been working in various law firms for over 8 years now and this is BY FAR the most inefficient printer/scanner I have ever seen! The button responses are really slow, the address book is really slow and it needs to initialize and/or calibrate almost every time you use it. Which means you have to stand there and twiddle your thumbs while you wait for the machine to prepare itself for a simple scan. I can literally walk to a different machine all the way down the hall and scan a doc in faster than I can when this machine decides to calibrate itself first. It does produce decent quality scans and print jobs, but be prepared to wait a LOT longer than you're used to for them each and every time. For the amount of money this machine costs combined with how incredibly frustrating it is to use, I would definitely NOT recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRINTER BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT 2 MONTHS AGO FOR UNDER 10 PEOPLE IN DEPARTMENT. CURRENTLY WORKS GREAT, SCAN, FAX, PRINT, COPY - FAST, NO ISSUES. WAS LOOKING FOR A SCANNER ONLY, BUT THE SALES PERSON CORRECTLY RECOMMENDED FOR THE SAME PRICE I COULD GET AN ALL-INONE. THIS IS A GOOD IDEA AS A BACK-UP TO MY OTHER EQUIPMENT. INITIALLY THE PAPER FEEDER WAS DEFECTIVE BUT HP FED-EX'D A REPLACEMENT PART AND A TECH SHOWED UP THE NEXT DAY OF REPORTING THE PROBLEM TO REPLACE. THE SET-UP WAS VERY DIFFICULT DUE TO HP'S TECHS NOT REALLY BEING PROPERLY TRAINED ON A NETWORK SET-UP. I HAD TO HAVE MY IT CO. STEP IN AND FINALIZE THE SET-UP. AFTER 2 MONTHS OF HEAVY USE, IT IS A TYPICAL HP PRODUCT - WORKS GREAT WITH LITTLE TO NO ISSUES. I HAVE 4 OTHER HP PRINTERS OF VARIOUS AGES (OLDEST BEING 12 YRS OLD) AND ALL STILL WORK GREAT

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So many problems whith this machine I own this printer but the sleep function causes probles all the time , you have to reboot the printer in order to wake up and that is some thing you have to do several times every day
    Date published: 2016-08-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for high-volume printing The major plus for me is that I can put a stack of 3.5x5 cards in the manual tray instead of feeding them one at a time, and it prints on heavy cardstock with a straight print path if you open the rear door. Two major flaws: if you don't print standard 8.5 x 11 size, you have to get up and hit the OK button every time you print something. This gets old really fast. It also beeps loudly, but I figured out how to turn that off. The other issue is that I often have toner dust on my prints. It wouldn't be a problem for a regular office, but I'm printing stationery that has to be flawless, so I have to throw out a lot of cards. I don't copy, scan or fax, so I don't have an opinion on those things.
    Date published: 2018-06-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but slow at scanning I downsized to this printer as a cost effective replacement for my older HP model. It takes a full ream of paper which is good since I go through a couple of reams a week, at minimum. However, for an office that scans to email many times a day and which sends out multiple faxes, there probably are options that scan faster and have easier to use fax options.
    Date published: 2015-04-28
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works well expect for Scanning We have our File Server on a Different Subnet then our copier, and scanning takes 10-13 seconds per page to scan! However, if your network scan folder location is on the same subnet as the Copier it worked great. HP support had no idea what the problem was, and left me scratching my head. HP's smaller unit M426 and our other scanners work perfectly fine scanning across subnet. Maybe was a Lime won't take a chance on any of there copiers now!
    Date published: 2016-10-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs well but loud. Good features and easy to use, but loud when running in small office space. Wish there was a way it would keep track of copies or printed pages for specific clients/users.
