Compact laser printer hp p1102 – good little machine. We had an old hp1002 at work which got broken after about 7 years, so for speed of replacement, i bought this and claimed it back on expenses. The purchase was based on it being very similar, as the old one had been so reliable, much more so than a complicated large colour printer/copier/scanner in the main office. This so far has been exactly what the user wanted, small, efficient and good quality black and white prints. It will be heavily used as the old one was, and so far its ticking all the boxes. Would recommend as long as you don’t want colour at all.
Great basic black and white printer. If you want a basic printer no-fuss printer to print whatever you throw at it, this is a great one. It’s not phased by envelopes or thicker paper or different. It seems to be as good as the hp1005 series printer which it replaced and was a great workhorse for 10 years – and not expensive to run. It doesn’t do colour or double-sided, but i don’t need that – i have another printer in my office for all that clever stuff.
Love this printer, had one in my office for 10 years and never had an issue with it. It just does what it says on the tin, black and white bog standard printing – our other inkjet printer at home works fine for colour but is much more temperamental so i wanted something straightforward for printing text. Hopefully this printer will last as long as my old office one :)however, one thing i didn’t like is that there’s no printer cable included – first time that’s happened to me, had to buy this separately. I had to call hp to obtain a driver to work with os10 yosemite on my macbook – there isn’t anything online as far as i’m aware and the instructions from hp direct you to apple updates (where the driver isn’t available – the only laserjet one listed doesn’t work with this printer) and hp don’t have software to download and direct you back to apple (not helpful)this is an old printer product now so not surprising but the chap from hp support was very patient – they will go through all the usual rubbish reading off their script but they just need to download the software for you but (like most tech support) you’ll have to go through all the hoops first.
- So far so good. Few months of using and quite heavy load

Does exactly what it says on the tin. A simple honest laser printer that plods on without fuss or ceremony. If you’re looking for a reliable black printer look no further. I’ve had mine for over a year with no issues and have just bought a second one for a friend who’s also delighted with it.
Works just the way it should, straight out of the box. The driver for it was already installed in windows 7.
The first time i printed on it i was disappointed with the quality. Type printing was not very sharp. But after a root around in the print settings of the app i was printing from (indesign) i discovered it was printing everything as a ‘bitmap’. Turn this option off and the output is now brilliant.
Refreshingly reliable after my deskjet. If all you require is reliable black/white printing, then look no further. Very tolerant of long periods out of use, and seems to use no toner. I bought a replacement cartridge (cheap if you research the right alternative supplier), but after a couple of years use at a few sheets a week, i’m still using the originally-supplied, low-capacity cartridgea wireless version is available for those who require it.
