The HP LaserJet CP2025dn is a compact colour laser printer that prints double-sided documents and connects via USB 2.0 or over a network with its built-in 10/100 ethernet.

The HP LaserJet CP2025dn is easy to set up, although it weighs nearly 23kg - you may need some help lifting it. The four small printer cartridges come preinstalled. You simply remove some protective tape from each cartridge before plugging in the printer.

The HP LaserJet CP2025dn is is network ready, and has a respectable 250-page input tray with an additional 50-sheet tray that holds a variety of media types.

In our tests, we found the 600dpi HP LaserJet CP2025dn to be both speedy and capable of high-quality prints. It printed our one-page Word test in 17 seconds, which is about average.

On our 10-page Word document, the HP LaserJet CP2025dn was a bit slower than many of our recently tested colour laser printers, with a speed of 44 seconds. It performed better on our four-page PDF test, besting all but one of those printers. The CP2025dn's Photoshop test time was the fastest we've seen for this class of printer.

Fast print times are welcome, but only if the printed output is of good quality. The HP LaserJet CP2025dn had no problems achieving glowing ratings from our panel of editors, who deemed its quality Very Good for both our standard Photoshop picnic image and our graphics and fine lines document, while its text quality earned a Superior rating.

In today's economy, everyone is looking for ways to trim costs - so it's important to look at the total cost of ownership, not just the initial purchase price of a printer. The HP LaserJet CP2025dn doesn't have the highest consumable costs we've seen, but it's pretty steep. You'll need deep pockets to print in volume.

If you're looking for a reasonably priced, compact colour laser printer that prints high-quality documents at a fast clip, then the HP LaserJet CP2025dn deserves to be on your short list. If you plan on printing a high volume of colour documents, though, you'll need to budget for its steep price per page.
