I work in an office that has a Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer and in my opinion, it is a good printer overall. I know where I work we print alot of paper and would be better if we had a bigger printer, but if you just need it for home or small office work, it is great.One great thing about this printer is that it is small and it fits in most places.

Performance
Where I work, we have been having the Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer for a while already and has not given us any problems aside from running out of ink.

Copy Quality
The quality of the pages are good, I have never printed pictures but what I have printed have been coming out in good quality.

Ink/Paper Use
I like this printer but my only concern is the size of the cartridges of ink and the paper amount that fits. Since we print alot of pages, we are putting paper every two days since it only fits so much. This printer is good for home use or for small offices that do not print as much. For normal print, ink cartridges would last you for a while, but for a big office that prints constantly this only lasts us about a week to two weeks.

Ease of Use
The Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer is very easy to use, just plug it to your computer and it will tell you to install it. Changing the ink is also fairly simple, just open the top, remove the old cartridges and install the new ones. It has an on and off buttton in the front and you put the paper in the front.

Durability
We have been having this printed for a while already and till this day, we have not had any issues with it.

Design
I love the design because it is small enough to fit in most places in the office.

I think the Hewlett Packard P1102 laser printer is a so-so printer. I do not think the newer generation printers are as good as Hewlett Packard printers make before the year 2000. HP has been cutting back on quality material and workmanship to maximize profits. That is understandable, but it is bad for us, the consumers. The P1102 feels cheap and the printer does not feels like it will break if you bump into it. When I lift the printer, it squeaks a little bit because the plastic case is not perfectly aligned. I think as long as you do not move the printer around too much, it will not be that much of a problem.

I have had some issues with the toner smearing when I print something. It is not a big smear except when I am printing a lot of sheets and the printer gets really hot. I think the heat causes the smearing. When printing cold, there might be specks here and there. There are times I do not notice the spots, but when it is there, it is not easy to ignore. When I print sparingly, the toner is not a problem.

As far as installing the drivers, is is fairly simple. Put in the cd and install. You can also install drivers via Windows Update for Microsoft Windows users. I have the driver installed on both XP and Windows 7 operating systems.

Quick and Reliable

By 

from West Covina, CA

Comments about Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer:

I wanted a new printer for typical text printing and also the occasional photo. After lots of research I settled on the Hewlett Packard P1102. I was initially impressed by its build quality when I took it out of the box. It has a nice design and feels very sturdy. I quickly hooked up it to my WIndows 7 PC and it immediately detected it. I downloaded the latest drivers and was all good to go. I needed to print a text document so I did that first. It came out as expected, fast and perfect. I then decided to test it out a bit more so I printed a family photo. I was very impressed with how it came out as well. The printer works fast as new printers should. It is also very quiet so that is a major plus.

The only cons about these HP printers are the cost of the ink tone replacement cartridges. After about 3 months I had to get a replacement. I was surprised they cost so much. Maybe the high cost for ink is normal, not sure.

Anyways, I highly recommend this printer.

Great Printer

By 

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer:

I am impressed by the qualityl of the HP p1102w. The printer is extremely fast and efficient, easy to use, and the toner was easy to install. The introductory cartridge has lasted 3 months of heavy printing use so I am very pleased at that. This was my first time owning a laser printer and it is far better than inkjets. I will be ordering my first replacement cartridge soon, but the price is very decent and states that it will give 1600 prints. This ends up saving a lot of money over time due to the high cost of inkjet cartrigages compared to how many pages they print. You pay a little more for the printer up front but in the long run is worth it. The color picture quality is excellent. I would recommend this printer to anyone.

Gets the job done

By 

from Whittier, CA

Comments about Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer:

This printer is totally worth the money. We use it in an office enivorement and it gets the job done. With little to no hassle at all. We had to replace an older printer that was using too much ink and that was very costly. The ink for this printer is reasonable and very affordable. Plus it's very stylish and is also very quiet. Also, I believe the H.P. printers are very reliable in general. They are afforable and get the job done. And when replacing the ink there is no hassle in finding it at any local office supply store. Or even on-line office stores. They always have the ink in stock. PLus, they have deals for discounts every once and awhile. So it is a good printer to get for the home or office. Like it I said it is very stylish for the home and the office. Its almost one of those "throw away printers" meaning if you have problems after awhile with it, it won't be that costly to just replace it rather than fix it.

Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer

By 

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer:

The new Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer is one in a million, practically selling itself in the long run. As people flock out to stores to buy this new device they not in any way be dismayed by the fact that it may get clogged at times. Or even that it could automatically shut down in the middle of your attempts to print an important document. And it certainly wont leak ink throughout itself after 2 print jobs have completed. Cons aside this printer does do its job for the most part being an extremely simply device. It also has a fast processor making it so that when it does decide to your print your work you can rely on high quality prints coupled with the luxary of a cheap toner. The last downside to this printer is that it is extremely noisy when it is not even printing. Whirring and metal clanking is what probably characterizes this printer. So all in all I do not recommend this if you are looking to upgrade.

hp laser printer

By 

from Warren, MI

Comments about Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer:

The Hewlet Packard p1102 Laser Printer is very easy to use and does everything that you need for a home office. You can scan to your computer. You can copy in black and white or color. You can also print pictures from your computer or from your camera. The ink cartages are reasonable and the machine is easy to maintain. I would recommend this printer to any one who is looking for an all in one computer printer. You should of course make your own comparisons with other printers, but I personally find this printer very good. The size of the printer is large enough to do the job, yet small enough to fit on your home desk.

The best printer ever to be invented!

By 

from Cleveland, GA

Comments about Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer:

So I am one of those cheap people who does not like to spend alot of money on expensive gadgets. I would much rather just go with the cheapest or better yet buy the floor model or one that has been dropped a few times in transit!LOL. Anyway, I was at the big Office store buying ink for my printer for about the hundreth time when I decided to look at the laser printers. I print alot of coupons and sell on Ebay too so ink was starting to cost alot. This model was on sale and I actually paid more than I normally would to get the wireless one. I am so glad I did because that has been a life saver! I can't tell you how many times I have found deals online and needed them to print right then without getting up and with this printer you dont have to! You can print from anywhere! Well, I am pretty sure you have to be in the house so your neighbor couldn't use it or anything....LOL. Another thing I love is the quality of how it prints! It looks like it is professional every single time! And the set up was so easy I think my dog could have done it! So as you can tell....I highly reccommend this item!

By 

from Springboro, OH

Comments about Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer:

This Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer is one of the top printers of my choice! I am a college student so i have a lot of papers and projects i have to print so i am constantly using my printer! I have the Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer and i love it! It has many options of printing styles. It is a great printer! Every time i print everything turns out like i want it to look. This printer has many different features such as copy, fax, scan and simply just print. It alarms you when you are out of paper with just a little ding and flashing light it also alarms you when the ink is low or out of color and or black ink. Everyone including business people, college students, teachers, or even stay at home moms should go out and invest in buying a Hewlett Packard P1102 Laser Printer! Overall most of the Hewlett Packard Printers are top of the long best quality printers there are out! I would recommend this Hewlett Packard P1102 Printer out to anyone out there even if you don't spend a lot of time printing i would still recommend this printer!

We have this wireless printer and I was a little worried about it working for my husbands screenprinting business but it has been great. We have had it for about 6 months and have not had any problems with it.
