Good entry level laser printer.

Rusty P., Newegg
11 December 2007
  • Summary: If you need a low capacity laser printer for personal or small business use, this one should work great. Don't buy it with the expectation that it can keep up with a high capacity of documents.
  • Pros: This is a nice entry-level laster printer for personal or small business use. It replaced a ink-jet that was costing our office too much money on ink cartridges.
  • Cons: A bit small. It is by no means in industrial strength printer.

Not for linux or wireless!

Thomas H., Newegg
29 September 2007
  • Pros: I hear it prints good... Unfortunately, the one I bought is relegated to the junk pile in the closet.
  • Cons: Do not get this printer unless you will be connected directly to a Windows PC. It is essentially a Win printer and the smarts are in the driver. It doesn't work on a wireless print server and although it can be made to work under linux it probably isn't worth the effort.

Needs an input tray cover

Alvin T., Newegg
30 November 2006
  • Pros: Good printer - prints quickly and clearly
  • Cons: Lack of input tray cover is a major drawback. 6 weeks into ownership and a black crayon rolled into tray and got sucked into printer. Now shows eternal paper jam. HP was very non-understanding, said this would have happened whether cover was provided or not. Recommend LaserJet 1022 as an alternat...

Good LOW END printer, NO DOS SUPPORT

Anonymous, Newegg
25 October 2006
  • Pros: Great for simple document printing from windows based applications. Easy setup & configuration.
  • Cons: NO DOS SUPPORT, NO PCL LANG SUPPORT. DO NOT TRY THIS PRINTER FOR DOS BASED APPLICATIONS. Even mapping w/ LPT ports on networks do not function properly. This printer cannot handle the language and format of dos printing.

User Review

William M., Newegg
29 September 2006
  • Summary: I bought this anticipating that it would just like my HP Laserjet 1012 at home, except able to pump out another page per minute. Unfortunately, I found it lacking compared to my trusty 1012. Firstly, it lacks the ‘soft’ power on/off button, as well as the cancel job button that my 1012 has.
  • Pros: Very good print quality (for text I generally don’t print images). Small footprint. Inexpensive.
  • Cons: Doesn’t include USB cable. I feel cheated! (See comments)
