HP LaserJet 4100

The LaserJet 4100 (above) and the LaserJet 4100mfp (see 4100mfp datasheet ) — the next standard-setting step in the distinguished evolution of the LJ 4000 and LJ 4050, which themselves set benchmarks in laser printing standards when they were released. The LaserJet 4100 takes the technology even farther with features and accessores to make your life easier and your printing quality better than ever.

Good news for LJ 4000 and LJ 4050 users — many accessories made for the LJ 4100 will work with your printers. An example is the 500-sheet stackable paper tray (C8055A). If you can't get ahold of a C4124A 500-sheet feeder for the 4000 and 4050, you may be glad to know you can use the C8055A instead!
