Pros: -inexpensive SSD
Cons: -if you don't need SATA, consider SD instead
Other Thoughts: ..for those without massive data storage needs.
-Good for Linux users, as a an OS boot drive in a multi-drive system, or for backup/portability for users that aren't overflowing with data files.
-Instantly recognized by two separate Windows 7 machines. In my desktop, USB 3 transfer speeds to/from an external enclosure were around 80 MB/sec.
-Fairly pricey (you can get the same capacity in an SD card for about half the price).
This review is from: HP 85A Black LaserJet Toner Cartridge (CE285A)
Pros: OEM for HP 1102w
1800 pages estimated
Other Thoughts: Once you've settled on your printer hardware, your only other choice is whether to go with the manufacturer's cartridges or an aftermarket "equivalent". I go with the OEM, and have had nothing but satisfactory result from HP cartridges.
Watch for sales and select with confidence for your HP printer.
Pros: -USB cable included
-USB and wireless
-works in a WAN (via router) or peer-to-peer
-works with Windows 8.1
-CD-free install under Windows
Other Thoughts: When faced with a need to simplify a user environment (from a networked/wireless to a local printing environment), the two main features I searched for was affordability and a direct USB connection.
This printer hit both of those marks, and as it came out of the box offered multiple additional pleasant surprises from a printer that is this affordable. Among them:
-an included USB cable (maybe this is new since my last printer purchase, but this is the first printer I ever bought that included a USB cable in the box. Nice!
-CD-free installation. I simply plugged this printer's USB cable into an available port, turned on the printer, and was walked through a no-hassle "HP Smart Install" routine that took only five minutes to complete.
-Windows 8.1 compatibility. I've had past experiences with other perfectly good HP printers deciding they would not play well the most current Windows OS. My Windows 8.1 install is five days old, and neither this printer nor the 8.1 machine blinked during this install.
Because the printing needs this printer will support are basic ones, I passed on the printer's prompt to download and install HP's XPS (XML paper specification driver).
Because I specifically wanted a wired connection for this printer, I tested the wireless features only briefly, and successfully installed it wirelessly (both via a router-enabled connection to a non-wireless capable desktop AND via a peer-to-peer wireless connection that required no assistance from a router).
All in all, this printer offers a tremendous amount of features at a very affordable price.
Select with confidence.
