Comments

Great printer for heavy printing needs. Fast, reliable, jam proof. Handles duplex/simplex great with linux (duplex is a rather expensive option).

Basically a great workhorse of a printer.

For basic printing functionality use the Postscript PPD. For advanced functionality such as printer status, maintenance features, scanning and photo card unload use the HPLIP driver (which includes HPIJS).

Various flavours are available, as is the HP way. The 4050N includes Ethernet.

This printer is a native PostScript printer, so the best is to use it with the PPD file delivered with the printer. So the printer gets exactly the possibilties which one has under Windows or MacOS.

Consumables/Refills: Toner and drum in one cartridge
