Better cheap lasers than this

Todd S., Newegg
27 October 2007
  • Summary: HP has a new beta driver posted for Vista users, but I'm on XP and have the same problem. HP doesn't acknowledge this problem on their site for this printer. I don't expect much from a cheap printer, but I draw the line at basic functionality, and expect better than this from HP.
  • Pros: Fast for a cheap printer, print quality looks good.
  • Cons: Prints vertical dashes on the side if you're printing any graphics. HP's workaround (which worked for me but doesn't for everyone) is to increase the print quality, which uses more toner.

User Review

Brad D., Newegg
26 October 2007
  • Pros: Good print quality and great price
  • Cons: NO VISTA DRIVERS!! You would think HP would make drivers for the OS which comes installed on almost all new computers but you would be wrong. They have a generic driver on their website but it doesn't work at all. I'm a very disappointed user.

Not working without USB cable

Qiaoli C., Newegg
12 September 2007
  • Pros: fast shipping
  • Cons: the printer cannot work at all without a USB cable, so i have to go out to buy a USB cable in order to use it:( the HP company or the newegg.com should sell USB together with the printer or warn customers about this inadequency.

You have to buy one USB cable

YILONG L., Newegg
12 January 2007
  • Pros: The worst case is the package does NOT include a USB cable. This quite annoying.
  • Cons: Before you place the order, make sure you can get one USB cable easily.

Laserjet 1018 - no networking capability

B. Davis, Amazon
4 October 2006
  • Summary: This is strictly a personal printer which can not be networked using any print server, including H-P's own print servers. H-P will sell you a $99 Wireless Printer Adapter Kit if you will need to share this printer in a home network (wireless or wired).

  • Summary: Similar problem to what Dr. Leslie describes. I replaced a Samsung USB laser printer with this one. The Samsung was working flawlessly with my system but the drum got some scratches.

Vista Driver is a Nightmare

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 October 2006
  • Summary: Took me days to fix. You have to install driver first BEFORE plugging printer to USB. Blame is on Vista (Premium Home) though.

The 1018 is a throwaway printer

David Crombee, Amazon
4 October 2006
  • Summary: I've had the LaserJet 1018 for about 6 months. It's cheap small and looks nice on the desk. About a month ago the printer stopped pulling paper correctly and that's when all hell broke loose. I should have simply thrown the printer out. Instead, I did like most would do...

I too had a MAJOR installation problem....

Dr. Leslie Dean Brown, Amazon
4 October 2006
  • Summary: (I have a Packard Bell Athlon 2600XP running Windows XP SP2) The printer would only print one or two pages of any 10+ page job, and then refused to work. Tried to print from different programs: nothing. I must have reinstalled it 10 times or more using different drivers & settings.

Keine Treiber von HP für Win 8.1

Meyenburger, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: Der Drucker arbeitete bis vor einiger Zeit ohne Probleme. Dann stieg mein PC automatisch von Win 8 auf Win 8.1 um und der Drucker verweigerte jeden Dienst. Mein deutlich älterer Brother-Drucker verkraftete den Umstieg problemlos. Das Internet ist voll mit Leidensgenossen.
