Does the job.

T. Gaines, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: I've had this printer for a long time now and the ink just ran out. My only beef is that there is no network connection and the paper is exposed which allows dust to gather on the paper. Recently I had to take the cartrige out and take the dust build up out, which was a pain, and the time that I started covering my paper. Otherwise it's been pretty darn good.

Good for Home

M. Golandaz, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought it for my home and work great, as HP's are suppose to, except for 1 small complain, when it picks the paper it makes an exceptionally loud sound, and this happens on every single page it prints. Other than that great quality, compact in size does everything a laser printer is suppose to do.

good and bad

  • Summary: I really thing that hp makes the best hp printers. they are very durable and can print forever, it seems. my only criticism is that they dont have a cost effective way to repair them in the rare times that they do need a repair so you end up throwing them out instead.

Not a good network printer

T. Shouse, Amazon
7 March 2010
  • Summary: We replaced an aging Laserjet 1022 with this printer and keep running into problems. First of all, we run Macs with OS 10.5, two of which use this printer daily (shared). Our first problem was that this printer is incompatible with our DYMO Labelwriter 400. Had to move the label printer to another computer that doesn't use the 1006P. It also has trouble printing PDF files straight from a browser, but not from Adobe Reader.

3 for product; 0 for HP

mb "mb", Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: I was forced to buy a new printer when I [unwillingly] moved to Win 7. Unfortunately, HP does not support my old printer (LaserJet 1000). And has no intent of doing so, according to thousands of other equally-distressed users who faced the same situation. (No, there's no patch. No, there's no possibility of there being one. No, no, no....HP's favorite word.) So, I got this one. It sounds as tho it's ready to jump off the desk (ka-CHUNCK!

Works ok, but it is loud and slow.

Deena L. Carico, Amazon

  • Summary: The printer replaced another HP Lasrjet. This one does the work, but it clunks every time you print a page. It is much slower than the previous one also. It will work for what I need it to, but I definitely don't feel like I can't live without it.

A little bit better than inkjet for text.

More Reliable Reviews, Amazon
20 May 2009
  • Summary: I have printed and compared prints of pages of text between this HP laser-printer (P1006) and the HP inkjet (Deskjet D4360). The inkjet prints darker regular lettering, but too dark bold. However, if using WORD-software, you can highlight your bold text, and go to "Format", "Font", "Other Colors" (at the bottom), and choose the next-step-down from full-black. This slightly lightens your bold, making it easier to read, while keeping it bold, solving the problem.

Problem with duplexing: sometimes misses a page

physicist, Amazon
17 December 2008
  • Summary: Overall the printer is ok, but there is a serious problem. I always try to print on both sides - for that you have to print first the even pages, flip the paper and then print odd ones. However, once in a while when printing PDF files printer either doesn't print some page, or prints it twice! Since "duplexing" is done by hand, this completely screws up the order of pages, which is especially annoying if I'm printing a large document.

Great home / home office laser printer

Lucy Cat, Amazon
22 November 2008
  • Summary: I received this laser printer as a replacement for my HP LaserJet 1020 Printer (Q5911A#ABA) which was roughly the same size and price. The toner for the older laser jet had roughly double the page yield which is my biggest complaint about the HP P1006. On a positive note: for the price, this printer is outstanding. It installed in under 5 minutes on both Windows XP and Windows Vista (I have it installed on two machines). It prints VERY fast and is reasonably quiet.
