Summary: This LaserJet 1018 does not work at all. It will not feed paper through the print area without crumpling and jamming. These exists excessive amounts of black dust / toner ink in the bottom of this printer.
Summary: I don't know why the drivers on this printer get corrupted, but that's purely unacceptable. I bought this printer for $89.99 direct from Amazon about a year ago, so I would DEFINITELY not pay $249.99 as listed here! That's CRAZY! Anyway, the corrupting driver's alone makes this a printer to AVOID. I will never buy this printer again. The corrupting driver's makes this printer unusable!
Summary: I went to buy one printer, but when it was not in stock, I ended up getting this one only to find out that it is NOT MAC compatible. I would have checked here first, but with so many that can interface it did not occur to me that a brand new printer would not. Customer care for HP has gone down the tubes, you are on hold forever, I was hung up on TWICE and when you do speak with a live person it is with someone in another country so the significant language barrier makes...
Ultra Poor Performance - You get what you pay for...

Summary: I usually don't purchase cheaper priced peripherals such as Printers, however, because of the great reviews and the fact I needed a printer fast I decided to order this - with Amazon Prime I recieved it the next day even though I had opted for 2day shipping. Anyhow, setup was simple - however I could tell right from the first print job this HP was significantly slower than the 2yr old Dell Laser printer it was replacing.
Summary: I loved this printer until it started making an extremely loud clacking noise 15 months after I purchased it - just in time to be out of warrenty. Online help tried to push me into buying a new upgrade printer and had to ask three times how to get it serviced using thier online caht which took forever. Then finally told me its $79.99 to service the printer. Seems a more envirnomentally friendly option than throwing away a printer and buying a new one.
Summary: This seems like a nice printer. I even ordered the separate USB cable and was all ready to go. I pulled off the plastic tape, shook the ink cassette and waited for my new laser printer to produce the crisp, lovely images I had spent the money upgrading from an HP inkjet to get. No dice. This baby is for Windows only.
Summary: "Frank" from customer support kept me on the phone for 45 minutes while he wrote up a "ticket" to replace this printer for me after it developed a phantom paper jam. Apparently, my role as the customer is to wait while Frank takes one hour of my time having me plug the computer in and out of the wall and then waiting while he writes up a "ticket" and puts me on hold. "Frank" tells me that I will get a new computer and then puts me on hold for ten minutes.
Summary: Buyer Beware! I purchased this item on 9/14/2007. Received fine,however, as of 9/23/2007, IT IS NOT VISTA CERTIFIED as indicated on the amazon page,nor according to the MS Vista Compatability List at MS. I'm not sure if this is the seller's or Amazon's mismarking, so check first and also with Hewlett-Packard and MS Compatability list.
