this should be hot purely because of the full toners supplied with the unit.
normally, most laser printers are supplied with reduced-capacity toner carts but this model is supplied with standard carts (HP sez approx 2000 pages).
and as always: if you only use genuine toner, it's probably cheaper to buy another of these printers at this price rather than buy a replacement set of carts. otherwise, compatible cart sets can be had for £80ish, maybe cheaper if self-refilled.
ebuyer are not that much cheaper than other retailers, but definitely hot for value.

Voting cold I'm afraid, a good price, but a lousy printer IMHO.

I have the 2600dn (similar but with duplex) at home. On a network, unless you go fixed IP, the drivers on the PC typically take 20-30 secs to "find" the printer before it sends the print job. This isn't an issue with USB.

The colour isn't very good, pinks print out more sludge burgandy, photos have a greenish tinge to them and no amount of tweaking with setting seems to fix that.

However the lousy part for me is the toner cost. The black is supposed to be good for 2500 sheets. However despite claiming otherwise they supply a starter one with it which lasted less than 500 sheets. I tried two remanufactured cartridges with limited success, so ended up having to pay over £50 for an HP branded cartridge.

With 4 toners cartridges costing £50 - 60 each, with a life of 2000 sheets. A page with colour text on it is going to cost you 10p in toner alone. They are all chipped so a pain to refill and remanufactured ones are in my experience poor quality.

My £40 Samsung B&W laser was *SO* much better!

Had mine for four months & I'm perfectly happy with it.

I simply have a reserved IP address in the router for the printer & have no problem.

Colours are fine on mine.

Mine is still showing 2,200 pages capacity. Looks like you have a duffer.

Found the 3 year on site warranty upgrade for less than £60 for those that need peace of mind.

I picked up one of these 18 months ago from PC World for £200 and thought it was a bargain, but I believe it does come with half-filled toners rather than full ones, because they didn't last as long as they should. I have no complaints about the print quality... I print out colour photos onto bog-standard Viking card for an annual family calendar and while the results are not up there with a dedicated photo printer using photo paper I have always found them more than adequate.

I have to say though mine has developed a loose connection in the RJ45 (network) socket which means the printer keeps falling off the home network. It''s a pain because I'd like to leave it in standby for the household to use but now I have to switch on the attached monster PC to access the printer, which wastes energy... mind you that might have been my fault so -

Voting hot..

Bear in mind that the print capacity of the cartridges is estimated on a page of text at 5% coverage. Photo printing is obviously going to significantly reduce that.

At printing colour??

ANyway, we have 2 of these in our office (design agency) and we produce all our proposals with this. Great machine for the price.

So if it's a good price - that's HOT then, no? The hot/cold thing is to indicate whether or not it's a good deal not whether you happen to like the product or not.
