The HP LaserJet 4ML is a monochrome laser printer designed for the personal user in a home or small office. Its text quality is good, and its reliability is unmatched, but slow speeds and limited connectivity choices reduce its value.
The HP 4ML is a personal laser printer that adds Mac compatibility to the mix. It is designed to be connected directly to a single computer for personal use. For office use, a Phaser 6128 featuring Xerox 106R01455 toner might be a better choice. The 4ML has a paper capacity of 100 sheets in its main drawer, with a single-sheet manual feed for alternate media types. 100 sheets may be a little limited, even for many personal users, as it will require more frequent reloading of paper.
The 4ML's design is more robust than most printers on the market. Many modern printers use flimsy materials as a cost-saving measure, but the 4ML's chassis is very solidly built, and it has a reputation for reliability. Its only connection option is parallel, which is becoming very uncommon for modern PC's. An adapter can be used to convert from parallel to USB, but factoring in this cost may make it more cost-effective to spend that money on a slightly more expensive printer.
HP 4ML toner cartridges are relatively inexpensive, resulting in a low cost per page. The HP LaserJet 4ML toner cartridges are easy to access and replace, located on the front of the unit. Each HP 4ML toner cartridge has a capacity of 3,500 pages, which is a bit less than competing products, such as Samsung CLP-C600A toner. Using third-party compatible cartridges rather than OEM HP LaserJet 4ML toner will save users even more money, especially over the long run.
Print speed is a major downside of the 4ML. It prints at only 4 pages per minute, which is quite slow. Print quality is good, but its 300 dpi printing engine is not as sharp as most of its competition, such as color units that use Dell 310-5729 toner.
Overall, the HP LaserJet 4ML is a reliable workhorse of a printer, but slow speeds and lackluster quality are huge obstacles to be overcome. Competing printers have more to offer for less money.
