Very Nice Compact Laser for Cheap

SirStinky, Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: HP practically wrote the book on small home office and large business printing and document management and it shows with the Laserjet 1012. I have had some less-than-stellar experiences with other HP printers (inkjet and laser), but have generally been satisfied with them. I have 5 of these sitting around my office and have used the LJ 1012 a lot and have grown quite fond of it.

Workaround for Windows 7 incompatibility

D. Banici, Amazon
24 September 2012
  • Summary: This is a great little printer, except you will have a hard time getting it to work on Windows 7. HP no longer makes drivers for this version of Windows. Here is how I got mine to work: Make sure the printer is ON and plugged into USB port. 1. From devices and printers: Add new printer | Local printer. 2. From ports screen: Use existing port | pick DOT4_001. 3. From available printers pick brand HP (not Hewlett Packard if both on list). 4.

It has exceeded all expectations.

Kenneth McAlpine, Amazon
11 September 2012
  • Summary: I gave this printer 4 stars because 5 stars should be reserved for a truly exceptional product. The LaserJet 1012 exceeded all of my expectations, however, so it gets a solid 4. I bought this printer many years ago because my mother was in town and wanted to print out 400 pages of stuff. "It would be cheaper to go to Fry's," I thought, "and just get the cheapest piece of crap laser printer on the market." We went there and this particular printer was on sale for $99.

Great printer for the home. Lack of Windows 7 support unfortunate.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this printer more than seven years ago and have never had a serious problem with it. It is perfect for moderate use in the home. However, HP made the regrettable decision not to support this printer with Windows 7 drivers. I have been using an imperfect workaround. When I am ready to buy a new printer, I will try to find a manufacturer that continues to support its products.

Good for light use - no windows 7 drivers

Singaporean Sam, Amazon
23 January 2012
  • Summary: PROS: Small footprint; relatively quiet; good quality printouts; uses the HP12A cartridge - this size cartridge is rated for 2000 pages vs HP successor cartridges for personal laser printers (eg, HP35A cartridge) which is rated for 1500 pages; Refurbished toner cartridges are widely available; CONS: No windows 7 drivers; compared to my previous printer (Samsung ML-2510), the 1012 prints a lot slower (especially noticeable with multi-page PDF documents) In conclusion,...

Solid Laser Printer, but Get Current Drivers

Bill Degler, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: This is an oldie but goodie. If you have an inkjet printer, add this to to your system for inexpensive B&W (and, optionally, legal-sized) printouts. Contact HP for latest drivers! Older drivers can crash your XP operating system. Uses 12A toner cartridge, as does the HP 1020, but is less expensive.

  • Summary: Easy to use. Prints most everything good. The only draw back is that HP products are proprietary and difficult to get repairs when needed.

Perky Little Machine...not obviated by Windows 7...Yet.....

Todd Coon "Reader", Amazon
4 April 2010
  • Summary: This is a solid little printer that is extremely reliable and uncomplicated, taking a minimum of desktop space. As I have used HP Laserjets since 1990, I know whereof I speak. I have owned the HP 1012 for five years now and hope to get another five out of it as a primary and eventually a secondary printer.
