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 tried to work through HP support to get the problem corrected. Don't bother. Just throw it away.
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. After installing the Laserjet 1018 I could not see the card reader or any memory stick I plugged into any USB port or syncronize my PDA. Installed the latest driver from their website, same problem. Uninstalled the printer, rebooted, and everything was back to normal.
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. Each time it would print a page & stop working. Period. Sometimes nothing would print upon reinstallation, especially if there was nothing in the manual feed tray.
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. HP stellt bis heute, habe es gerade überprüft, keinen Win 8.1-Treiber für das Gerät bereit. Die sind wohl der Meinung, man könne so den Absatz ankurbeln.
