Summary: Good printer for the money, I've got a P1505n as well and have the same issue with drivers sometimes un-installing or the printer not communicating with the other PCs on the network. Could be from the router and access point that refresh and lose its ID or something...
Pros: Fast printing and I like the "EconoMode" to save toner
Cons: Driver support issues with HP and random un-install on Windows XP Pro
Summary: This was bought to replace an ink jet printer and so far it looks great. It was refurbished and shows minor signs of previous use but nothing that affects performance. The print quality is good and the toner cost should be much lower than the ink cartridges that the old printer used.
Summary: This printer was purchased for occasional home printing. I was unhappy with ink-jets and the constant clogging of the jets from using the printer only once or twice a week. The HP P1505 prints great-looking crisp B&W documents. It duplexes for double-sided documents.
Summary: I just bought an HP P1505 yesterday and hooked it up to my Lenovo T61 notebook. The install was a bit time consuming, I thought & requires both a CD/ROM & an internet hookup. Par for the course, these days, I guess.
Works great on home network with cheap print server
28 January 2009
Summary: I wasn't able to connect my LaserJet 1100 to my home network so my wife always had to turn on my computer to use it. But I bought the P1505 (NOT the P1505n) to replace the 1100 because I had a cheap Hawking H-PSU1 print server and figured I could use that to connect the printer directly to the...
Cons: I had never heard the term "host based" before trying to install this printer to a jetdirect print server. After 3 1/2 hours of the pc's detecting the printer yet nothing printing to it I called HP. You can't use this printer with a printer server(isn't that the point of external printer servers?...
Summary: This replaced my long-lasting and much-loved Samsung laserjet but I wasn't disappointed - this HP is a neat and compact design with a clever fold away paper tray. It has a really fast warm up time (hardly any wait at all really) and produces quick and good quality copies. It was easy to install too.
