Summary: I paid $100 for each of my P1006 printers and think they have been a very good value. My Epson laser printers were good for about seven years; my Samsung printers were good for about 5 years. We'll see how long the HP holds up.
Pros: After owning a couple of other laser printers (Epson and Samsung) I wanted to try the inexpensive HP P1006. I used it at home for six months, then bought one for the office as a personal printer. It is fast, quiet, prints about 15 pages a minute with the fastest first print I've ever had. Toner c...
Cons: Does not do well with heavier stock and mailing labels have to be loaded one sheet at a time.
Summary: But once it's installed, it's solid. I don't see paper jam much, and it's been dependable.
Pros: It's cheap, and it works!
Cons: I've purchased about 5 ~ 6 of these for my work, and they have not been easy to install. I've used the CD, and the drivers downloaded from HP. They just don't want to get installed easy. I've had to reboot a few times, I've had to remove it, and reinstall it, I've seen a blue screen... Maybe it's...
Pros: It prints surprisingly well for the price and is pretty fast. It does print with Vista unlike a comment earlier in the post suggests... I am running Vista 64 bit and I am able to print to the P1006 just fine.
Cons: Not really a con, but would be nice if the paper tray was fully internal...but for it's small size, that is not possible.
Summary: Overall please with this printer. I haven't tried to thick "card stock" but then again I use it as an office printer, not for arts & crafts. Download the most recent drivers for your specific operating system before you install this. It will make it easier in the long run.
Pros: Prints cleanly and fairly quick. Small footprint --> I have it set up in my dinky office between two rows of ventilated shelving and it fits nicely. Same footprint as a ream of paper. Noise level is negligible. Print quality is reliable. Works fine on my laptop (Vista32Premium) and desktop (Vista...
Cons: A little hard to get it to feed envelopes but not impossible. Not really a con but worth noting. Comes with starter cartridge but that is to be expected with any printer. HP inks are sort of pricey but you can shop around.
