Great Update to the 1012! Still an Excellent Laser
27 April 2013
Summary: I run this alongside the older, discontinued LJ 1012. The LJ 1020 is an update to the 1012, and has a lot (thankfully) of the same features as the older model. It's still very compact (small enough to fit on any desk) at less than 15"x10"x10" has HP's "instant on" fuser (which stays on even when idle for faster startup), and the really versatile software of the 1012. It's still compatible with Win. 98 SE and up.
Summary: It works fine but I would never buy a used printer at that price again. There are brand new current model printers that are about the same price that also are wireless. This one is not. I also don't know how much toner is left even though it seems fine for now. So it was not a smart choice. Only time will tell how long it lasts.
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. The quality is good for documents and emails, which is primarily what I use it for.
Summary: I have another HP1020 that I really like because of the speed.The price on this printer was a bargain and it works great.I was a little disappointed when I opened the box to find there was no power cord or operating CD.Over all ,I am pleased with this printer.

Summary: These printers were (are) a dime-a-dozen and can be found on the cheap (~$40). I happened to come across a couple of these printers (still New-In-Box) and hung them off a couple computers. They are simple, no-frills, monochrome laser printers that I have found to do a decent job, although there is a reportedly a bug in the spooler when dealing with large PDF files.
