Summary: The HP4L is a workhorse that I just cannot do without....so reliable! I have had one for twenty plus years that developed a fatal fault and just would not continue. I located one on ebay and purchase it. I have slept well ever since.
Summary: I am so grateful to have been able to replace the top lid of my trusty HP Laserjet 4L with a used printer that was sold for parts. It arrived promptly,without bumps or bruises, and was just as Chris said it would be. I couldn't be happier. I replace the lid to my old printer. I hope to get another 15 years out of it. Unlike today's printers, the cartridges for this one last forever! I have had it for a good 15 or more years and I'm only on my third ink cartridge.
Summary: The HP 4l is a nice workhorse of a computer. However, these were manufactured 16-18 years ago. The issue is that they do not have a USB port as they are equipped with the LPT1 port which computer manufacturers stopped installing on computers more than 6 years ago. Also, they will not work with Windows Vista or Windows 7. They will work on some of the older versions of Windows XP. In summary, a nice old computer but simply does not work with new PCs.
Summary: I've had this printer since it was manufactured & must have printed tens of thousands of pages on it with no problems! It just started getting a small blotchy edge, I may be able to have someone fix it, but couldn't live without one so purchased another on Ebay. It's an incredible "workhorse" printer, cartridges can last 6 months to a year even for a busy little office. Always my hats off to HP!
Summary: The HP 4L is a great printer. I know it's old but never the less a work horse. Never had a problem with it until it died but I had it more then 15 years. I only got another one because my computer would not allow an install of any newer printer so I'm using this till I get a new computer and maybe even after that.
