Summary: This is a nice, compact laser printer. If you need something for routine B&W printing, this printer will do the job. I acquired it second hand from a friend, and it has worked really well. I bought an after-market toner from Amazon for $20.00 and it has already gone at least 500 pages.
Summary: As others have said, it is pretty lame that it doesnt come with a USB cable, but who doesn't have a bag full of them anyways? Buy one on new egg for a couple of bucks Prints great transparencies as well!
Pros: Affordable entry cost as lasers go, very small footprint, quiet, but not exceptionally quiet compared to other lasers. Works as a great option for those of you seeing the light, and giving up with the inkjets, cost per page comes in between 3 and 5 cents depending on where you find your toner, i ...
Cons: Cost per page is slightly high for a laser, if you are printing A LOT, consider other models, but if you are just stepping up from an inkjet, maybe doing a little more printing as a result, this is a great printer to go with!
Summary: I have owned two of these and just purchased 2 more for grandson and son. The only problem I have had is getting it to work on a DLink print share, hence I bought a second one for the wife. These have decent but not great print quality.
Pros: Fast with great quality printing. Replacing older Lexmark in need of $350.00 print head.
Cons: To the contrary of the other reviewer yes, there are Vista drivers, however, there are no 64 bit Drivers for Vista available yet. Checked HP site and it only says they are currently working on them. Unfortunately no other drivers (XP 64bit) would suffice.
Pros: This is a very nice product, small, light weight, easy to set-up, and relatively quiet.
Cons: I bought this because of an email about a sale. I think I would have prefered a networkable printer...similar ones from Brother and Samsung have either or both Ethernet or WiFi capability. It is not standalone! It is a Win Printer, such that much of the processing of a print is doen on the connec...
Summary: An interesting note is that the 1018 actually came out after this 1020, and both seem to be effectively identical. However since the 1018 came out, the price of this 1020 went up everywhere. Now, even though the 1018 is cheaper, it is still more expensive than the 1020 used to be.
Pros: Great standard for the 10xx series. My secretary found this as an acceptable replacement to her Laserjet II monster she used to have. It works and feeds the same (just doesn't get as hot or have the huge footprint!).
Cons: Have had some blurring problems with the Laserjet 10xx machines.
Cons: "True" footprint (~14"x15") is larger than shown (~9"x15"). Realistically, users will have the paper tray down at all times - this configuration is how much room it'll take. Check out NewEgg's additional images for a sense of how it'll look on your desk.
