DON'T BUY THIS PRINTER UNTIL THERE IS A WINDOWS 8 DRIVER

Summary: I've used my HP P1505 Laserjet quite happily for about 18 months. It was cheap to buy, and is much cheaper to use than an ink printer for B&W materials. It is robust and reliable. However, HP have not yet released a Windows 8 Driver for the P1505, which makes it unusable with any PC running Windows 8. They've been promising the driver for months, but it's still not here.
Summary: No windows 8 drivers !!! I have win8 pro full version, installed on empty HDD. I looked like crazy for drivers for p1505. A-a. However my old G4010 HP scanner has drivers for win8, downloaded, installed, checked, worked perfectly. In win8 pro full I tried to add printer manually and updated the printers and drivers from windows update and guess what: they have the new printers, so at least they will have an operating system driver for their new laser printers, even if...
Summary: The printer initially worked OK. Then I got a new computer, with Windows 7 as the operating system. Windows says it does not recognize the device. I download up-to-date printer drivers from HP, the printer works for a while, and then the problem recurs. As my HP warranty had expired before I got Windows 7, HP has been unwilling to provide help.
Summary: After I updated the Windows Vista operating system the printer no longer functioned and a few associates are experiencing the same frustrations. I don't know who is at fault here: HP or Microsoft. It's recommended that you use the drivers from the manufacturer, and in this case, the drivers that I downloaded from the web site, which are supposed to be the most current, did not work either.
Summary: This printer worked for about a year before it began printing horizontal lines and later not responding at all to print requests. It stopped working with OS 10.5 and never worked with OS 10.6 Do not recommend for a Mac.
HP misleads customers: the 1505 does not work with a MAC

Summary: I frankly feel HP is guilty of deceptive advertising. The box states the printer is compatible with Mac OSX. The printer would not print at all with the driver it was shipped with. Like others, I called HP tech support and was told to download the latest driver. Now it prints sometimes, but sometimes it only prints horizontal lines. I have limped along like this until the "intro" toner cartridge has run out (another rip off).
Summary: if you want to spend a lot of your valuable time talking to hp call center. Do not think it twice, buy this product Bouhgt it, it did not work. HP changed it, worked for two month. Failed. Changed it again, and came a defective product again. They are in the process of changing it again. I am praying to the printer godess...
Summary: Nice printer in most respects (we have three in our offices) but it uses a whole lot of ink. The toner cartridges are supposed to be good for 2000 pages, but we get nowhere near that... We like HP, but don't recommend this model.
Do NOT buy this printer to use with a Mac, unless you're in the market for a lot of frustration!

Summary: HP claims this printer is compatible with Mac OSX. Don't believe it. There are major problems printing from Word on a Mac, a problem of which HP is fully aware but claims that downloading the latest version of the driver from their website will fix it. In my recent and very frustrating experience (3 calls so far to HP Tech Support), it does not.
Summary: Thought I would update this thread-- the printer and its new drivers still do not work with Mac (10.5.8) as of 8/24/2009. Apparently any impending hp driver fix has dropped off of their "to do" list. Mac users shouldn't buy this printer.
