Summary: I would advise against buying this printer. Installation failed for me on two PCs, Windows 7 and Windows 8. I have spent 24hours trying to sort it out. It will connect via a USB cable, but HPs own software does not then recognise it and fails. Downloading the massive install from the website did not help either. I am an IT pro and found the whole process daunting and HPs support non existent for UK customers. No phone, no email, no web chat, no nothing.
Summary: I have been using this model as well as some of the other models in the range for the last 5 or more years and find them the most reliable and robust compact laser printers available. I have 3.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: When considering which laser printer I would purchase I came across the HP P1102 as well as a few from brother and canon. I have always found the HP reliable so I was a little bit biased. What swayed the decision for me was the good price, the HP brand and the first print page is relatively quick for a cheap laser printer like this. I had a previous model and the first print took 30 seconds by the time the laser warmed up.
Excerpt: I hate over complicated technology and the HP LaserJet Pro P1102 is so simple, it does what a printer should do, print! It also has a really nice look to it and fit in perfectly with the look of my home office!
Excerpt: I bought this for home use...Print bulk of notes and references related to my studies. They deliver within two day (which is really nice specially when you have just one week left for exams) Package contains everything but what I didn't notice is it didn't include the USB cable. So I have to buy one separately. So keep that in mind when you make the purchase. When it comes to printing I'm really happy with the product. It print fast, got real good response time as well.
