This review is from: HP LaserJet Pro P1102w 1200 dpi USB/Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer
What else can you say/expect from a simple black and white toner printer.
Sometimes it takes in more than one sheet of standard cheap Georgia-Pacific paper i recommend getting thicker slightly more costly printer paper.
Printer properties were a bit annoying make sure to hit apply after making any changes in your 'devices and printers' property pages, if you change settings then change a page it doesn't save the changes on the previous page, usually i change settings on all pages then hit okay but it wasn't saving settings if i didn't hit apply on each page.
I personally recommend disabling the auto-off feature in printer properties, sometimes when powering it back on it takes awhile to be re-detected maybe its just my computer its auto sleep mode should save more than enough power.
Had some major USB driver conflicts with my old HP laserjet 1200 this was replacing. Even though i uninstalled my hp 1200 drivers before installing the new ones there was still various dlls left in that somehow caused this printer to be detected as a dvd drive??, then after i uninstalled the new printers drivers.. it oddly didn't uninstall anything so i had to manually go through the registry and remove all hp dlls from the print spooler registry section (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors), delete all the new printers registry entries (various services), delete the 'C:\program files\hp' files delete the installed printer HP dlls in the windows drivers print spooler location (Windows\System32\spool\drivers\w32x86) delete all the HP printer dlls from system32, all just to get this printer to work through USB, (i'm certain it would've worked flawlessly through wireless but i prefer wired hence why i only took off one star), hopefully this was just a freak occurrence but just in case you have a previous model laserjet running on a USB it may have similar problems getting it going [directories and locations are for 32bit windows i wouldn't recommend trying any of that without knowing exactly what you're doing].
HP laserjet printers are usually the best bet for people who print alot and don't need color, my older 1200 series lasted around 10 years and i ran it to its death, it went hilariously though at first it had a high pitched scream as it printed, then it started printing in wavy lines, now it just farts when you press the power button. I bought this to replace it and it works great so far, wonder if it can last longer than my old one.
A slight issue that has nothing to do with the printer but more with neweggs shippers: Theres a current 30$ rebate going on with the purchase of an HP toner cartridge, neweggs shipper's ship the printer by slapping a UPS label on the printer box and shipping it, which isnt normally an issue, but they happened to slap the UPS label >on my UPC code< (required for rebate) i literally spent 2 hrs to carefully not damage the UPC peeling the UPS label off hopefully HP still acknowledges it when i mail it in.
