Summary: So far I'm very happy mainly with the size of this printer. As far as speed of printing go, if your not using it in a business environment it's fine. If your like me and do little or no color printing, this printer will work great and will save you money hands down over an ink jet! Bought this used for around $35 and aftermarket toner cartridges are only about $25! Toner doesn't dry out and there is more yield per cartridge than ink jets.
Quiet printer! Fast yet doesn't cause lites to flicker

Summary: I just got this 2nd hand, and satisfied, at least so far. I'm usually a dummie at installation and setup, yet found this printer to be intuitive enough not to have to be a rocket scientist to figure out, unlike some other brands i've tried. It also isn't noisy nor does it interfere with ceiling lites as was caused by at least two other printer brands I've tried.
Summary: The HP 1018 is a great b/w laserjet printer at a very reasonable price. Living in a dry climate I had to abandon injet printers as the cartridges dry up and are worthless in no time. Lasers fit the bill perfectly. This is my second 1018. I bought my first one new from HP and was so satisfied that I shopped around for a good used one. Totally satisfied. Highly recommended.
Summary: This is a compact reliable printer that fits almost anywhere. I have purchased three of these printers, one for my office, one for my home and one for a gift. The main reason I like them is that you don't have to worry about your liquid ink drying out and ruining your print heads.
Summary: I've been using HP's laserjet printers now for about 20 years. What's to like? Small footprint, relatively easy hook-up, and unbeatable print quality. What's not to like? Toner can be expensive (the cheapest cost for me is $55 at my local Sam's Club. (Don't waste your time or money on third party or refurbished toner cartridges!) If you're used to a dot-matrix, this is one investment you won't regret.
