Colour or black and white prints come in an excellent quality and documents are crisp without blemishes.

The HP Colour LaserJet 3500 does not have any networking abilities, which may be a disadvantage for some users, particularly businesses. Another shortcoming is its lack of scanner, copier, or fax machine. If you print a lot, you can expect to change the HP 3500 toner quite frequently. This printer also does not have any additional memory expansion slots, which means you can't speed it up to handle more work. The speed of printing may also not be fast enough for anyone who requires high-volume printing. If you are seeking a printer that can produce amazing prints but aren't too concerned with speed or the potential to upgrade, the HP Colour LaserJet 3500 may be the perfect option.
