I am considering this printer as a home printer, because it is not too expensive (well it's not exactly cheap, but it's very new and compared to the cheapest price of their colour laserjets a year ago, or even 6 months ago, it's very low) but I was wondering if anyone could tell me how hard it is to maintain? If a paper jam occurs or a toner needs changing will it be incredibly hard, or is it easy to maintain?

I do know that HP have a range of colour laserjets designed for home use (like the 1600) but the 3600 has fairly decent print speeds (for a home user) of 17ppm colour and black and white, compared to the painful 8ppm in colour of the 1600 or worse 4ppm in colour of the 2250.

The HP Color Laserjet 3000 and 3800 are closely related, so if anyone has any experience of those I'd like to hear it too!

I am asking mainly because I have seen inside one of their larger, faster colour laser printers and it looks terrifying! Does the fact that the 3000 ones are smaller mean it's better for me? Thanks very much

Oh, and also do they come with all 4 toners supplied? If not that adds about an extra £450 to the price, which is quite major! I can't see if it says on their site.

all of the hp laserjet series have extremely easy (all be it expensive) toner setups.....it's basically the same as any other printer...just take out the old and slap in the new.....usually the toner cartriges come with some form of tab that you have to pull off befor putting them in the printer...but they all have instructions...nothing special in that respect...and all printers h ave to be built in such a way as to allow you to clear almost any paper jam...it's just a matter of finding out where the jam is and yanking the paper out...i would also make sure to get any available warranty with the printer as if it does break....they aren't cheap to fix on your own..

as far as if toner is in the printer when it comes....on the hp site there's a "live chat" function that you can use to ask one of their employeess any questions you have about any product
