4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little Laserjet for Home/Student use, 11 Oct. 2008
This review is from: HP LaserJet P1005 Printer (Electronics)
I am using this HP P1005 Laserjet printer with my Apple 13" Macbook running OSX Leopard (10.5). I purchased this over the similarly priced Canon i-SENSYS LBP2900B Laser Printer due to the lack of Macintosh drivers from Canon and the many positive reviews for HP I came across when researching small monochrome laser printers on the internet.

Installation was quick and simple and inside the box was a leaflet for a £35 rebate from HP on the condition that you complete 2 surveys on your printer usage over a year, which was a pleasant surprise.

The printer is very compact and folds away its trays neatly when there is no paper inside. It powers-up very fast and is relatively quick to process information prior to printing.

The main criticisms I find with this printer however are that the heat produced from printing will bend your paper slightly, the supplied toner cartridge is only half-full (marketed as a "trial" cartridge), there is no USB cable supplied in the box and if you're printing more than 10 pages you begin to notice that laser-printer ozone smell, a necessary byproduct of the printing process.

Criticisms aside for around £50 this is a good quality printer. Full toner cartridges are around £40 but they are good for approx. 1500 sheets resulting in printing costs of around £0.03p (~£0.02p/sheet, not inc. paper). A good purchase and very useful for homes, small business' and students who do not require to print in colour.

Hi simmons,
Wow! You gave a very detailed review on ozone smell, cable exclusion and toner level. Great, informative and neutral review :)
Thank you very much for your time,
