A good printer, but HP doesn't have the right driver

Lei Qu, Amazon
23 June 2012
  • Summary: Apparently HP stopped supporting this product for Windows 7. So Windows 7 users don't have a drive that will support this printer. But there are many ways to get around this issue so the printing function can still perform.

Will Not Be Supported Under Windows 7!

Best Hubris "Writer of BestHubris webstite.", Amazon
4 January 2010
  • Summary: The HP LaserJet 1012 was a really great small business or home office printer. It had easy to replace toner and it stood up well over time. Apparently, too well because HP wants it to be obsolete now. According to the HP Support website, the HP LaserJet 1012 Printer is "Category 6".

Good until it quit working

Consumer, Amazon
29 October 2005
  • Summary: This printer did fine at my desk, but it only lasted a year and a half. The roller that pulls the paper into the machine quit working, and it won't be worthwhile to fix it since I only paid $100 in March of 2004. It was great while it lasted.

Fast, but not kind to the paper

Sunil, Amazon
4 March 2005
  • Summary: I have had this printer for a few months now, and I like how quickly it can print its first page. For my minimal printing needs (some websites, papers, etc.) it is fine in terms of speed and print quality.

Installation may be a problem.

Russell Fanelli, Amazon
4 November 2004
  • Summary: Fortunately for me, I read the Amazon reviews before buying this printer. I was prepared with my USB cable that did not come with the printer. Also, many Amazon reviewers have had problems with installation, so when the printer failed to properly install on my new Dell, I quickly called expert help...

OK Little Printer

Sires "I like mysteries (particularly British ones, historical fiction and nonfiction, science fiction and fantasy.", Amazon
16 July 2004
  • Summary: I needed a cheap printer quick and this one happened to fill the bill. The toner catridges are readily available, the print quality is all right and set up on xp was pretty much what would be expected from any printer. It even networked without a fuss.

good for font size>10

Amazon
11 February 2004
  • Summary: In general a fair printer for home office. But I noticed that if I use font size=8 in MS Excel, characters have noticable ugly rough edges. Not that bad for font size=10 but you can still see the edges are not so smooth. A bit better in MS Word.

Installation problems

Amazon
24 January 2004
  • Summary: Like Amadeuz, I had a hard time installing (tried multiple times, even returned one printer and tried another), though I use XP pro on a P4 machine. Only unlike Amadeuz, I gave up after 4 tries. The problem may be with my Dell, which doesn't seem to like its USB 2.0 ports.

question

M. Philip Chong, Amazon
15 January 2004
  • Summary: If it is USB, then you cannot share this printer so you can network and print from inside your LAN. Right? I cannot find 1015, which one user said it has parallel port. I dont want USB for a printer. Doing a search on web get me to a website in UK. Is 1015 only made overseas?

Great Inexpensive Printer with Incompatibility Problems

suetonius "seutonius", Amazon
31 December 2003
  • Summary: I have purchased two of these printers. The first was connected to a 9 month old Pentium IV machine running XP with no problems. The software installed flawlessly and the printer began to spit out papers seconds after I pressed the print key.
