Excerpt: The LaserJet 1020 printer from HP is ideal for people who want a simple, reliable, monochrome laser printer that will perform as a reliable workhorse day after day. It is not particularly exciting, it is not fashionably styled and it has no exciting special features - it doesn’t even include a scanner - but as a straightforward printer for relatively light home use it is hard to beat.
Excerpt: I bought a HP LaserJet 1020 printer 3 months ago for one of my project. I needed to print out good quality black and white graphics from one of my applications. Being a low cost laser printer in its range, I was not expecting a lot from the printer , but to my amazement the print quality was very good.
Summary: Printer works well. My issues with it are: rebuilt with different color parts (not the first time I bought rebuilt but never had this issue) and no plastic dust cover for paper (also used as a loading area for labels, envelopes, etc.
Summary: I have never written a review before, but this printer is so awesome that I felt compelled to go out of my way to sing its praises. I received it as a gift in my freshman year of college, and now 7 years later it has never failed me to this day. I've only ever had to replace the toner once, and it has never malfunctioned. Most reliable and easy to use product I own.
Summary: These are pretty good workhorse printers. We've been using them in an office environment for years. Toner is a bit spendy unfortunately. Out of around 5+ that we have i've only had to send one in for repairs, and user 'error' probably caused that.
Summary: I've had this printer since 2003. No problems, no issues, 0 maintenance, use cheapest generic remanufactured toner from amazon sellers. Light home use. Friend bought the newer model about three years ago. Compared to 1020 the new models have a much lower cartridge capacity, smaller cartridge. I think about half the size of 1020.
Summary: I have had this printer for 7 years or so and it has worked flawlessly and barely uses any of the cartridge even when set to high resolution printing. I use it almost daily and it has only needed the cartridge changed out ONCE, about a year ago. This makes this a huge money saver compared to inkjets that need expensive cartridges every few months with comparable printing frequency. Has the capability for dual sided printing, which is a paper-saver.
