Summary: Printer not supported by HP since they have stopped selling them for about two years. I spent about two hours with them being switched to about a dozen of their reps to resolve a printing quality problem.
Could not obtain the driver for the machine to connect to the computer so therefore the machine was worthless.

Summary: Apparently this model is a few years old and HP no longer supports the driver you need to have your computer speak to the printer. Therefore the printer is worthless. When you advertise items like this you should also indicate whether or not the driver is still available.
Summary: I bought a HP desktop seven years ago. The day after the warranty expired, I called in a problem that had been chronic. HP refused to honor its warranty and instead sent me to India, where people were in training.
great printer but it DOES NOT work w/ Vista 64-bit Home Premium
9 November 2008
Summary: Be careful of the reviews claiming there are workarounds to get this to work w/ Vista. They are not specific enough. There is no Vista driver for this printer. It's a great Laser for other systems, but it's basically garbage if you buy a Vista Home Basic or a Vista Home Premium PC.
Summary: This printer worked fine until i upgraded to Leopard. HP says that this works with Leopard but they have not put out any updated driver. Now i have a perfectly good printer that is defunct because of a piece of software. Guess I will have to buy a new printer. it WON'T be HP!!!!!
Summary: This printer is supposed to replace the LaserJet 1000, which we had for almost 2 years. The 1000 worked like a charm. We printed about 30,000 pages and 14,000 envelopes with it. Then it finally wore out (the fuser burned out). With the 1012, I had problems with installation.
Summary: The printing preferences window contents does not fit into the visible window area. It looks like a driver compatibility problem with the new Windows XP Service Pack 2. I didn't install SP2 on my other computer, and the driver is working fine. The Email technical support was terrible.
Summary: Warning: you will not be able to use this product without buying a separate USB cable. This is like buying a new car and first having to push it to the nearest gas station before you can use it. Apparently the USB from my digital camera is not the right size.
