The HP Color LaserJet 2605dtn is a compact yet versatile laser printer that delivers excellent color and monochrome printouts and flexible paper handling, which also has a built-in photo card reader and duplex printing that will save time and reduce paper usage. It is described by PCMag.com as a color laser printer that “delivers high-quality output and excellent paper handling, but you’d better not be in a hurry to print” and has pros such as “impressive output quality, built-in duplexer, network connection and prints directly from memory cards.” While for its cons, PCMag.com just has its slow printing speed to complain about.
CNET Reviews, on the other hand, described the HP Color LaserJet 2605dtn as a laser printer that “shows excellent color and monochrome print quality, has a built-in photo card reader and duplexer, and is reasonably priced.” Aside from that, “it prints color cheaply and well enough for small offices, individuals, and small corporate workgroups.” For its disadvantages, CNET Reviews complains for its menu system which is according to them is hard to navigate, its paper input which is limited to 500-sheets and lastly with its software which they suggest could be more user-friendly if possible.
