Summary: I've had this printer for four years now. I love it. It is quick, I can manually duplex easily, the toner is affordable (especially compared to the ink jet hogs!), and it is very very reliable. Others have said that when it hangs (such as when it runs out of paper), you have to turn it off or reboot your computer. Not true! I have installed all the drivers that came with it, and I get a message on the screen that says that it has run out of paper or whatever.
Summary: Inexpensive...toner is much cheaper than inkjet printers...prints very fast and very clean copies....i purchased it as i needed a carbon based toner for my thermofax printing....works perfectly with thermofax machine.
INCREDIBLE BARGAIN for CHEAP but QUALITY B/W prints

Summary: Over the years, I have always had the best luck with HP printers. I have tried the bargain Epson, Lexmark, Brother and gotten the shaft every time. I tried those after my hard-working HP inkjet dies after 3 hard years. I thought I had finally found the perfect printer, a Samsung 300 color laser. the different color toners were cheap but after only about 5,000 copies, the image went to hell.
Summary: The Laserjet P1005 is a great value for the money. A basic B&W printer. I got rid of my old printer because of the cost of multiple ink cartridges. Set up was complicated (my fault) because there was still something inside, under the cartridge...that was packing material! But was easy to trouble shoot/set up my contacting HP support on line and by phone. Save your receipt and have the date of purchase ready when you call HP...so your warranty can be in effect.
Summary: I highly recommend the HP P1005 LaserJet printer for family use. It is compact, fast, and has excellent quality print. I prefer black and white laserjet, because I see no need in my situation for color (and more cartridges). The HP P1005 does everything I want, and I am extremely pleased with it.
Summary: I had never owned a laser printer of any type prior to this purchase. From all of the research I had done on this project, I knew it did not have all the bells and whistles of a floor mounted printer. For what I needed it to accomplish, it has met or exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this product to anyone seeking a laser-jet printer for home use.
