m25man's review of HP Color LaserJet 2600n


“Throughout the Vista beta programme of 5million users...”

written by m25man on 03/02/2007

Good Points
Very cheap. Simple to setup. Small footprint.
Soho users will be attracted to it by it's price and HP's clever marketing.
Usual HP build quality.
Has built in network printing.

Bad Points
No support for Vista whatsoever!
Has the minimum amount of memory so do not expect it to work with complex applications you are likely to get half finished documents if you send it anything to complicated.
There is no way to add any more memory.

General Comments
Throughout the Vista beta programme of 5million users they failed to deliver a driver for this HP Colour LaserJet 2600n.

Despite a promise by HP to support it soon, now Vista is launched and still no drivers.

If you want a replacement SoHo laser with a touch of colour and are using Windows XP then this might suit your needs.

If you are a serious user with photoshop or work with more complex colour applications then buy a printer with more memory

If you already own one of these DO NOT BUY A VISTA PC!

If you have a Vista PC DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE!

Be warned, HP have done this before with other models, like the HP1100A.

They simply abandon support for a product even though it is still widely used and in the supply chain.

There are still many of this model out there on the shelves, and they are being sold off at crazy prices, this rings my alarm bell... will we ever see a Vista Driver?

Maybe they are just being dumped because they can't make it work.

Buyer beware.

Until there is Vista support, Don't buy this product.
