    HP M501dn Reviews

    LaserJet Pro M501dn Monochrome Laser Printer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For someone who prints a lot--this is great. economical So, I had an earlier version of this machine for 16 years--until it ceased to duplex. I haven't had this very long but so far, so good. I like the configuration of controls better, but it is noisier. Still, very fast, good quality print and takes a little less space than my old one. There were machines half the size, but this one gets something like 18,000 (yes, that's right) sheets of print to a cartridge and the others got 1500. So it cost 5 times as much for the same number of sheets with a cheaper machine. If you print a lot, as I do, this is worth the difference and quickly makes up the difference in cost of the machine and the cartridges.

    Rated 1 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 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 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 Recommend We are four reams in to our new printer (installed less than two weeks ago) and performance has been perfect. We needed a workhorse and it looks like we chose wisely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Printer with Bad Toner Cartridge The printer came loaded with a bad toner cartridge: It would print pages with toner spots on every page. Called HP and was told to call seller. HP would not send us a replacement cartridge.
