This was a great printer that has been sold by a bad company ...

Summary: This was a great printer that has been sold by a bad company that does not believe in backing what they sell. Willing to take your money will not work with a bad product that was broken from the start.
Summary: I have owned this printer for four months. I gave it two stars (don't like it) instead of one (hate it) because if I hated it, I would have dumped it instead of figuring out a way for it to work. When using Vista, I discovered it would not work when used as a shared printer. So I only used it as a direct printer, opening all documents in the computer it is attached to. Not too bad. Then I migrated to Windows 7. And, ... oh, my gosh!
Summary: This is the worst printer I've ever bought. It's completely unreliable. The paper feeder works only some of the time. We've called for technical support, and updated the drivers. Nothing seems to help. Don't buy this model!
Summary: I have spent many hours on the phone with apple, and HP and still can not get this cheap printer to work. Installing the latest 220.127.116.11 driver the printer was recognized, but print job hangs. HP and apple support so far are unable to explain. Jan. 2, 2010. Next time I will buy the brand in the apple store that works. You just can not trust the HP website. Does not work with OS 10.6.2 ,using airport extreme router.
Summary: Do yourself a favor and get another printer instead, if you are a mac user. I have a macbook pro and the printer is unusable with it. The main problem, I think, is the driver. It does not print. The computer recognizes the printer, but when sent to the printer queue, it just stops dead and nothing happens. All you get is "stopped" in the queue.
Summary: This HP LaserJet P1500 arrived seemingly intact, w/ cartridge packed inside, but never produced one page. Hardware issue: the printer had a paper feed problem that could not be fixed even w/ phone support from Tech at HP. Telephoning for help involved call being routed around a few times, but the tech eventually reached was very polite and helpful. Hope the replacement printer works.
Summary: I bought this printer recently much to my regret. It does not have the typical "stop print" and "reset" buttons that most HP and Dell printers have...only "on/off." That means you have reboot your whole system when the printer hangs up (which it frequently does). If I run out of paper in the middle of a print job, it often can't tell if I've put paper in, so it stays in suspension. It really, really sucks.
Summary: All I wanted was a compact laser printer that I can use at work. After reading all the reviews and specs I went ahead and bought it. After 2 days of trying to get it to actually print, I found out that it really is NOT compatible with mac. I can't even add it as a printer for my printing list. It doesn't show up. On the information provided by all vendors, it said that mac with the current os will be able to recognize the printer. It doesn't!!
Summary: Second P1005... second one that will not print due to paper jams. If you want a fun hour and a half though, contact their Tech support so they can ask you what operating system you have... because somehow that's related to paper jams. I couldn't tell you how the print quality is on the printer. I can tell you it eats paper.
