Summary: I bought this printer ages ago for assignments in college. It never broke and never decreased in performance. It is easily the best low-cost laser printer. The toner lasts for a really long time, like over a year for an average college student. I have consistently seen my colleagues using this model as well.
Summary: This thing is a beast. Prints on average 5,000 pages a year and the only thing it will jam on is my kid's fingers. To save on the cost of toner I've used off brand cartriges and the printer doesn't seem to notice. It's rare that computer hardware, it you could call it so, will last this long despite two young children and a ton of printing.
Summary: I have a few of these basic 1010 series printers and am amazed at how they stand up over the years. Low cost replacement cartridges are available and generally you can drill and fill the cartridge at least once with still cheaper toner before they totally crap out. For low to moderate usage, hard to beat!
Summary: I bought one of these for my desk at work and this one for my desk at home. BOTH are still running.....actually gave (I guess its re-gifting) one to a friend who needed something compact and dependable.
Summary: I've had this model for four years and it has worked great the whole time and transitioned seamlessly to Windows 7. It's used for letters, Excel lists, envolopes and checks. Evderything I wanted it for. It's my black / white workhorse.I figure it's Microsoft World so I don't give a hoot about its incompatibitlity with Apple products.
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.
Summary: I bought this as a refurb several years ago, and this printer is still going strong. The HP brand toner lasts forever. This printer has paid for itself many times over in the money I have saved. I printed all of our wedding invitations, programs, and thank-you letters with it using kits, with quality that came out better than most of the "professional" stuff I have seen, at a HUGE cost savings. The speed is plenty fine for home use, and likely for many small businesses.
