Pros: Usual HP quality. Paper loading and energy efficiency. 32-bit Vista works fine on newer 45 series motherboard.
Cons: Usual software learning curve for HP. Not listed as 64-bit compatible for Vista by MS. Probably dependent on motherboard/BIOS. Manual feed much less convenient than an old HP 6L printer but compensated by duplex convenience.
Summary: On the other hand, my father's workplace uses this same printer with Windows XP machines and it works fine, so my warning need only be heeded by those who intend to use this printer with Vista.
Pros: Cube shape takes up fairly little space on a desk, even compared to non-laser printers.
Cons: Clearly, the requirements for Vista Certification are dismally low because this printer barely works with Vista. Using the Vista-compliant PCL6 drivers from the HP website, the printer exhibits a 5-10 second period of inactivity between each printed page. Using the PCL5 drivers, the print speed i...
Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet P2015d: For [$] I had to purchase it! The kids love to print out what they see online and I never had a printer that could handle everything that they were printing! It jammed on us, would quit working all together or didn’t have very good print quality.
Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet P2015d: We use this printer in our small private school. It is really a good one. We don't have huge ink costs to print our lesson plans for the students becuase it is only a black and white printer and this has allowed us to save a lot in terms of waste and frivolity.
Summary: This is a great printer. Others have complained about the software but I don't understand how it interferes with anything. I had a difficult time making the duplex mode work, but ultimately I figured it out.
Summary: If you're using Vista, don't insert the disc that comes with the printer; and close any Vista window that opens when you connect the printer to your system. Then use Add Printer to install the driver from the HP site.
Pros: Fast. Excellent print quality--no problem with light pages at the beginning (but I did shake the toner well). Consistent feed--no jams. Duplex works perfectly and not much slower than one-sided. Sized to fit a home office workspace. Works fine on Vista Home Premium. Toner cartridge expected page ...
Cons: Does not come with instruction or driver for Vista users, nor does Vista contain the driver. You must go to the HP site and download the Vista driver and instructions; HP site does have Vista installation instructions, but you have to really look for them and they are not in-depth.
Summary: Deposited a 5240 competitor's printer in hazmat. This printer does evrything very well. Doesn't destroy envelopes. If you load all the software on the CD you will slow down your PC. Only load SW necessary to opertate the printer. If it would only make the keyboard spell correctly.
Pros: Does a great job with everything. Very Fast. Less than 10 seconds from a cold start to first page out. Double sided printing saves papar and time. Highly recommnend this printer.
Summary: After a number of months of fine performance, it suddenly stopped working, with the "paper jam" light illuminated; tech support quickly helped me confirm that there was no actual paper jam and that I was covered under warranty.
Pros: Worked quite well after the initial period of too-light printing (which requires one to waste about 10% of the toner cartridge capacity) and before it just stopped working (the paper jam light was on, but there was no paper jam).
Cons: As mentioned in my post-purchase review, too-light printing until a couple hundred sheets had been printed. Lame warranty service described below ...
