HP P1102w 8 MB 18 ppm A4 Wireless LaserJet Printer : Works well, although AirPrint config can be tricky

I can now print from each pc. I can now print from each pc without any needing to be physically attached. The printer can be located anywhere within wifi range. The printer has an email address so it will print anything from anything if you really want. I associated that with my google cloud print account so i can now print anything off my mobile phone, chromebook or hudl. The only downside is that the hp eprinter can sometimes take 5 mins before the printed document comes out either via the hp eprinter service or the aocciated google cloud print service. It’s still brilliant thoughi was out and about doing my work, and realised that i needed to order something. I found what i needed via mobile phone, ordered it, then printed the invoice straight from my mobile phone so it was ready for when i arrived back home. How convenieniant is that?the print quality is nice and crisp.

Only downside might be double sided printing – see other comments – which really needs a good quality paper. Working well and doing what required. Only downside might be double sided printing – see other comments – which really needs a good quality paper. But this may be a system of occasional home use where moisture rating in paper may not be as well controlled. On double sided often find it best to print of odd pages first and leave to all to flatten out before printing on the reverse. Setting up was a little confusing at first as the screen instructions do not always come up as clearly as the instructions set out. This can easily lead you into trying to install incorrectly and without success. Thus took me longer than expected – bit one is not doing these things often enough to realise/.

Seemingly good product marred by setup routine. . After days of failed setup hassle, this printer is finally installed and working wirelessly from iphone, windows rt and windows 10 devices. Windows 10 install programme can be downloaded from the hp web page. But if you have had a failed install: delete any hp printers via add remove printers devices, uninstall all the hp software and reboot the pc. Initial indications are the printer is completely adequate once the install has been completed. Here are the specifications for the HP P1102w 8 MB 18 ppm A4 Wireless LaserJet Printer:

This is a great mono printer with an option of manual duplex printing. This is a great mono printer with an option of manual duplex printing and full wifi print functionality. I don’t print very often, maybe once a month just a couple of pages so having a laser printer was a must to avoid dried up ink cartridges. One small tip, the package i had contained a driver disc that didn’t seem to recognise the 1102w printer when it was connected, so i set mine up using wps in less than 5 minutes. Simply press the wps button on your router, then press the wifi button on the printer. After a minute or so, the printer will display a solid blue light, that’s it – all ready for you to find the printer using wifi on your phone, laptop, tablet etc. Not too noisy when in use and compact enough that’s it can be easily hidden anywhere. The auto powerdown mode is also excellent, waking the printer up when you print to it and then going into low power mode again when the printer is no longer in use (i think the default for this is 5 minutes). All in all, very decent for the price and no more wasted ink after a printer hasn’t been in use for extended periods.

Reliable, versatile and economic little printer. Bought one of these as a little compact laser for the house for printing from phones, tablets and laptops. I’ve installed the original usb only versions in work for years and found them very reliable and cheap to run, so i decided a wireless version would be perfect for the living room on a shelf out of the way. It works great from my iphone, ipad, nexus 4, sony vaio and linux think pad. At first it was printing graphics really slowly from ios, but a firmware upgrade fixed that. Setup was simple enough, although it needs connected to a pc via the usb provided first even if you only want wireless which is quite odd. Once setup it need never be connected to a pc again. Replacement cartridges hold about 2500 pages and cost as little as £12 making it super cheap compared to others.

  • WiFi? Not on my network. Rubbish! – SEE UPDATED COMMENTS
  • Sleek printer that has clear print quality. Wireless non functioninnd very frustrating!

Excellent printer (and dust gatherer) for the price. Very quick printer with ‘assisted’ duplex in that you have to turn the swatch of odd-numbered pages over and re-insert to print all the even-numbered sides. This took a little bit of trial and error initially until i got used to printing an odd number of sheets – the machine being more clever than i had anticipated. The only con, so far is the propensity for the black plastic case to accumulate dust. Has anyone tried anti-static polishes or treatments in such cases?.

    It’s a real work-horse, is dead simple to use and just doesn’t go wrong. I had the previous model for years ad only upgraded to this as the old one became incompatible with my new mac. I’ve had epsom and cannon printers before and found them too complicated and fiddly.

      1. Sleek printer that has clear print quality. Wireless non functioninnd very frustrating. This is a sleek small printer which is great for small/er spaces and isn’t to ugly to heavy to lift if needed. Firstly this printer is very economical with the cartridge, i am still on the original cartridge which came with the printer (i can only assume that it wasn’t a full cartridge). The clarity is great and am more than happy with the quality of the print. I am also happy with the fact that there are not too many buttons etc (which nobody ever uses as far as i know) and is simple to use. The design is sleek and looks ok on a desk f you really need it there. It does not take up too much room either. The only reason i have not given it 5 stars is because whenever i try to use it wirelessly it never works and every thing including my laptop just crash. (i have been using this printer for over a year and still cannot get it to work despite following both paper and online instructions.

    1. Great printer, cheap running costs. . Had this product for over two years now. I am studying with the ou and have to print off a lot of reports and discussion papers for my studies. This printer is great for this and for printing on both sides of the paper which saves paper costs. I use a toner company to get my toner cartridges from which also saves on toner costs, okay they are not genuine hp but who cares, they are just as good and save me a fortune. I like this printer so much that i am considering getting another one and leaving it in the box for when this one finally fails in a few years or so. Beats spending a fortune on inks and if like me you don’t need a colour printer it’s a great buy. Some people have found it tricky to set up for wireless printing but i haven’t had a problem and i print from my phone and ipad without any problems.

    Still going strong after some years of use. Direct print needs no router to print wirelessly.

    Great printer – definitely recommend it. . Cheap to run (i buy non branded toners from ebay for about £7).

      1. For our purposes (mainly printing tickets, booking confirmations and random documents for relatives) a much better buy than a cheap inkjet, no worries with printer ink drying or expensive refills. When we want to print photos we take an sd card, usb stick or phone to the supermarket and use their machines. Installed it using a sacrificial old windows pc i installed the drivers on, after that my mac and several ios devices in the household plus various ipads people have brought round can all print to it fine as long as they are on wifi, no messing with any additional drivers, apple airprint is great. Have occasionally had the printer not want to connect to wifi, however the blame there could well lie on the virgin media router as it can be a bit temperamental. Would be 5 stars if it had a control panel and little screen for tinkering with settings, but can’t argue at this price point.

    1 year without problem, sold as a second hand for more than half the original price.

    Connecting this printer to a wireless network using wps is very simple. I no longer have a pc or mac to contend with, so i can only comment on printing from iphone or ipad. Printing from ios is easy, no drivers or software required at all. Quality of the printout is very good also. If you’re tired of replacing ink that’s more expensive than its equivalent weight in gold, then i can recommend this laser printer wholeheartedly.
