HP LaserJet P1005 Printer : Excellent for the Student

Bought quite a few items from amazon and had no problems. Item was delivered well packed and the printer was simple to set up. If my comments are what you are looking for in a printer and supplier then i have no hesitation in recommending both.

Nice little laserjet for home/student use. I am using this hp p1005 laserjet printer with my apple 13′ macbook running osx leopard (10. 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.

Always liked hp because they are durable and they replace when something goes wrong without a fuss. This is probably one of my best purchases. Few months in it stopped working, called hp and they sent a replacement straight out (brand new). It powers on & warms up very quickly (within few seconds).

This is pretty good value for a simple mono laserjet printer. We’ve always stuck with hp and found them reliable. Easy to install, cost effective to run. Sometimes cheaper recycled/refurbed toner cartridges can create messy print quality. For this money they’re never going to be anything flasher than a simple workhorse, but they run as a share on networks happily and although the lead time to print on the p1005 seems fractionally slower than the lj1020 it replaced it isn’t a huge issue (but cost it a star).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Nice little Laserjet for Home/Student use
  • Great for home use
  • HP Printer Laser Jet P1005

The hp p1005 is a neat little laserjet, with a small footprint, so doesn’t take up much desk space. Operation is fairly noisy and unless you have the paper in exactly right, it doesn’t always pick up, although with just a little nudge of your paper it will on the next attempt. For a budget laserjet it does the job required. If the star system had been categorised, i’d have given it 3* for operation & 4* for value for money.

My trusty kyocera had given up the ghost and as i mostly use colour didn’t want to spend much on a mono laser printer. After reading the reviews i went for the laserjet p1005 in spite of some saying set up wasn’t easy.

    Cheap black and white printing. . We have had this printer for several years and it has worked flawlessly in a home office. Laser printers & cartridges are more expensive than ink jet but the cost per print over a number of years is far far cheaper. If you need to only print in black and white then this is an excellent purchase.

    Best printer ever – cheap and reliable. I’ve got two of them – both serve wellcan be used with aftermarket cartridges with no problem or you can refill existing one up to 3 times – option for poor man:).

      1. This s one of the best printers i’ve come across – i love the fact that the ink cartridge lasts for so long that one doesn’t have to keep fiddling about with tiny cartridges.

    1. Very reasonably priced laser printer- ideal for home use. I bought this printer a couple of years ago and have found it to be excellent for the price. It takes a little while to warm up before it gets the first page out and it’s not the fastest printer in the world, but it’s still much quicker than waiting for an inkjet printer to do the same thing. The printer comes with a half-full toner cartridge and we got quite a lot out of it before it ran out. However, the replacement cartridges cost nearly as much as the printer itself, although they do last a while. The quality of the printing itself is perfectly good. Overall, i am very pleased with this printer. I have used it with machines running xp, vista and 7 and every time it just plugs in, installs within seconds and gets on with the job.

    This printer won’t let you down. The starter cartridge lasts and lasts – i’ve had it a year and i haven’t had to replace it yet. Move over bubblejets, black and white home printing just doesn’t get better.

    This is a cheap, reliable unit that provides a clear, crisp output and ends the headaches of clogged jets, head cleaning rituals etc. I provide computer services to local clients and have persuaded a number of them to buy this unit. Every one of those clients has told me that they wished they had bought it sooner. I see that this unit is not showing up on some sites any more. I suggest that you buy a spare cartridge, in case they change the model.

    Functionally, the printer itself is good, good quality prints and decently fast. The one major fault is the lack of a menu button. This causes a problem because i ran into the issue of the printer spooler needing resetting, which happens rather often. But you have to know the procedure for doing this via windows rather than on the printer itself, since there’s no button to do this. Also, hp’s service center hours in the uk are too short. Has 24 hour service, so i called them. But this is more of a reflection of the level of customer service provided in the uk.

    Best printer i’ve ever owned. Ok, so it doesn’t do colour, but since getting this printer i’ve realised that reliability and print quality are way, way more important. I have spent years trying to encourage inkjet printers not to smudge or misalign my prints. With this laser printer, every print comes out totally accurate – and fast. I used to spend ages trying to print labels accurately and now it just works. This printer is affordable too – don’t be put off by the toner price, because when you consider that you only buy the one (black) and it does many more pages than inkjet carts, it works out to be pretty economical in comparison.

      1. This is a really good printer. It was recommended to me because i was wasting far too much money on my inkjet ink and this was brilliant. Besides being very economical, it is very very fast and the quality is fantastic. Amazon delivered really fast too so i am a happy man. I would recommend this with my eyes shutwell done hp.

    Hp laser jet p 1005 printer. A lead to connect the printer to my computer was not included. As a computer ‘beginner’ i did not have a spare lead available,so a separate order to amazon had to be made. Also the getting started guide was not at all helpful for someone with no previous experience of setting up a printer. It needed complete instructions in english (if delivered to an address in england), not just one sentence repeated in 15 languages and diagrams which made no sense at all to a novice. Luckily my son sorted it all out for me on the telephone. Now the printer is ‘up and running it’s fine.
