An old HP model, but still valid.

Joseph R, Amazon
27 February 2016
  • Summary: It is a printer that is long out of date, but still quite useful. I bought this refurbished locally for about the same cost as some of the vendors here on Amazon. I went local as I needed a printer that very day and was not able to wait for delivery. I am on Windows, so I cannot speak to other OSs.

If you are frustrated with an inkjet, try this BEAST...

  • Summary: I bought it from a thrift store for $20, checked the page count, saw it had printed the better part of 8,000 pages, printed a few test pages and then I gave it to my aunt who used up the toner cartridge in it and then let it rest.

Great laserjet for the money

Jason G., Newegg
12 April 2008
  • Summary: The toner cartridge that came with the printer was good for approximately 2000 - 2500 sheets. Obviously I didn't count, but it was quite a while before I needed to put in a new toner cartridge.
  • Pros: I've worked with HP Laserjets for years as a network admin, and I've always been impressed with their performance and relatively rare equipment failures. This was the first Laserjet I purchased for home use, and after a year of use, it has performed without a hitch.
  • Cons: The printer quality is outstanding, and it has the speed to match. As a law student I'm often printing 50+ pages of briefs and whatnot, and this printer does an excellent job. I can't imagine spending more $ for a laserjet unless you're looking for color.

great basic printer

Michael M., Newegg
27 February 2008
  • Summary: Another good quality printer from HP, but I would probably not pay full price of over a hundred.
  • Pros: Got it almost free after rebate. I have used it to print hundreds of sheets and so far no problems. Easy to set up, and good driver support from HP.
  • Cons: Had a 'rebate scare' from HP, where they were at one time rejecting rebates for this printer due to technicalities of who was an 'authorized reseller', but HP did begin to honor the rebates.

Fast and nice

Starla A., Newegg
24 February 2008
  • Summary: Excellent printer if you're a college student, or for a small office, or if you need a printer once in a while (inkjets get clogged). It prints fast and it's easy to use. Works on Windows XP and Vista (even if you get an error message when installing on Vista, the printer gets installed).
  • Pros: I had the HP LaserJet 6L at home, and was excellent and reliable and the tonner was expensive but lasted forever. My mistake was to buy a new printer a couple of years ago, an inkjet from HP as well, but color printer, with scanner, lots of features and functions I never used. With the many print...
  • Cons: the printer doesn't come with the USB cable. I have some USB cables at home that came with other devices, but I wasn't sure if they would work with the printer (apparently they are the same type) so I had to buy a cable from the printer seller, and it was more expensive than it probably costs.

I like it, but...

Anonymous, Newegg
22 January 2008
  • Summary: I don't hold it against HP that Vista doesn't run their driver install correctly. I used this printer on my XP machine and it works very well. It comes with starter toner (half-sized cartridge) and that doesn't make me happy but it's a great printer nonetheless and a great value.
  • Pros: It's HP. I didn't even look at other brands. I am an IT tech and it's basically common knowledge that LaserJets are the printer of choice. And it's cheap.
  • Cons: Having trouble getting it to work with Vista. I bought this one instead of the better (and cheaper) model with higher PPM because it said it was Vista certified. I have tried installing the driver semi-manually as well as via the install software (which I downloaded from HP) and both bombed out. ...

It's HP and it's Vista Certified

Anonymous, Newegg
9 January 2008
  • Summary: Hope it works with Vista. I've heard some say they can't make it work but it's my job to make printers work, and I've had good success in the past.
  • Pros: It's HP. I deal with various laser printers as a staff IT guy (mostly Kyocera) but we have a few HPs. I would buy a LaserJet as my first choice any day. In fact, I didn't even consider any non-LaserJets when buying a home printer. They set the standard for non-production laser printers. Good pric...
  • Cons: It comes with starter toner. For those who don't know, starter toner means you get about half as many pages out of it as you would with a new cartridge. Yes, it makes the price lower, but it would be nice if they shipped it with a full cartridge.
