Good...Yet Flawed

  • Summary: The P3005 would be a fine medium-duty laser printer, if it weren't for a design flaw that causes premature repairs.
  • Pros: Fast, Quiet, Holds a full ream of paper.
  • Cons: Design flaw causing premature repairs for the life of the printer.

Excellent value

The Scythian, Amazon
8 March 2009
  • Summary: This printer warms up more slowly than my old Laserjet 5000 but, having warmed up, prints more than twice as fast--and much, much faster when duplexing. The duplexing technology is far superior to the old added-tray system, which jammed too often (after several thousand copies, I've had no jams in the P3005d duplexer). The image quality is excellent (better for graphics than my $9,000. Toshiba), and it has various fuser settings for different kinds of media.

A Real Workhorse

CyberQual, Amazon
2 January 2009
  • Summary: This is an awesome printer! Have had it for years and it has been flawless in its performance. I had HP printers prior to this that also worked perfectly for years, some for more than a decade. This is big, and heavy. I like that because it means it has some meat to it, unlike the majority of printers today that are so light they just seem to have nothing inside.

Great, fast printer

Melissa Goldstein "Mutzko", Amazon
20 December 2008
  • Summary: After several attempts at purchasing less expensive home printers that were absurdly slow, loud and/or shaky, ineffective, or just didn't work at all, I finally gave in and bought this printer, which is the same HP model used at my office. I have to print 60+ page documents on a regular basis and the P3005D does so very quickly and reliably. It prints quietly, holds a large supply of blank paper, and is compact enough not to require a desk of its own.

Expensive compared, but excellent

Carl Sullivan, Amazon

  • Summary: A little more expensive than some... but you can't be more HP compatible than an HP. Feeding is good, setup went smooth.

Dead Formatter Board

Matt, Amazon
21 November 2008
  • Summary: After a year and a half of medium use this thing will power on but not boot up. After extensive searching around the internet it seems like there are problems with the formatter boards on these printers. I called HP to see if anything is being done and we were told if we want a new board it will cost $199 for the board plus installation. I've used tons of HP printers and they usually hold up but this thing is a lemon & a pile of JUNK.

slow but good

18 October 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet P3005d: if you don't print a lot it will be just fine. It does a very good job, it is just slow. That is fine for a lot of us.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors, Sharp Detail
  • Cons: Slow, Uses Too Much Ink

It's an OK printer.

Chris, pcRUSH.com
27 May 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet P3005d: I used to use this printer in the office until we replaced it. It isn't that great. It is too slow, loud, and is really flimsy... I wouldn't recommend buying this - even if price is an issue.

  • Cons: Flimsy, Noisy, Slow
