The printer is outdated and doesn't readily work with Windows 8.

Andrew Gaudet, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: This printer does not work with Windows 8, it would have been nice if this was mentioned in the ad since the majority of people who use computers use the most up to date Windows version.

No Vista Support!

Paul P. Mayne, Amazon
17 March 2007
  • Summary: Awesome on XP, but Vista is being ignored by HP. It's quite a joke. Worthless on Vista...

Good Printer, BUT doesn't work with Vista

L. A. Price "Al Price", Amazon
3 February 2007
  • Summary: I loved this printer until I bought a new computer with Vista and it wouldn't recognize the printer. No driver at HP, no solution at this time. So it is disconnected. I am pretty disappointed in HP not having a suitable driver.

Can't Stop the Steam

M. JEFFREY MCMAHON "herculodge", Amazon
15 January 2006
  • Summary: In spite of this reliable printer's great reputation, it creates steam during the printing process. This is a real deal-killer. No matter how consistent its performance, there is no way I can recommend a printer that steams as it sucks moisture of out printer paper. It turns out this is a common complaint from owners of the LaserJet 1012. Be warned.

Some concerns...

Robert Brockman, Amazon
26 February 2005
  • Summary: I bought this and immediately returned it. There's conflicting information about this printer, even on HP's own website. Their own brochure states that it has no processor of it's own, but uses the computer to do the crunching... this seems to be true, given the length of time print jobs sit before the lights started flashing. Not LONG, but noticeable. Amazon's information --- from HP --- says that it has a 133MHz processor, which I doubt.

"printer wears out easily"

CNET
4 October 2004
  • Pros: prints well, easy to use
  • Cons: The roller drum can wear out very quickly. We have been through 2 printers so far. Each only lasted about 6 months. HP did honor the warranty but stated this is not an uncommon problem w/ moderate to heavy usage (still under max. page rec.)
