HP LaserJet P1102w


Small, compact and quite cheap, HP LaserJet printer also known as the P1102w, is great for home users and small businesses. Cluttered space is the thing of the past, with the very light weight and small dimensions (349 x 238 x 196mm). Weighing at a nice 5.3kg, making it perfect if space is scarce on your desk.

The printer has a lot of cool features, such as wireless capabilities. Making it easy if you work from a laptop and quickly need something printing off. It also boasts folding compartments, which comes in handy if you like to keep your work area tidy and clean. It also has a envelope printing compartment, just above the A4 tray. I found that using any envelope will fit in side the printer, quite easily.

The printer quality only prints in black and has up to 600 x 600 dpi (dots per inch) and prints at a speed of 8.2 seconds per page. Which is pretty fast, if you have a lot of documents to print.

If you decide to use the printer wirelessly, then you will need to hook up the printer to your PC temporarily while setting up the printer first time. It's relatively straight forward to set up. The disc is very easy to understand and follow the methods for the installation. The software installation files are very low demanding.

HP provides a 32-bit and 64-bit disc driver for windows XP, windows Vista, Windows 7, and for Mac OS X, it also supports Linux.


Conclusion

The printer is very reliable from all the other printers I have experienced. Surprisingly enough, while the printer is linked up to a Windows 7 64-bit machine, I can use the printers Wireless capabilities through a Macintosh without any hassle, which is nice, considering I could not hook up to a network printer at home from the mac wirelessly.

The only downfall for the printer I can think of is the ink, at a price of £61 per cartridge is slightly expensive. But I found that for half the price you can get the cartridge refilled at any printer store. Ranging from who you go too, I only found one which was the cheapest at, £30 per refill or alternatively you could find a website which sell inkjet cartridges, I found a few websites which sell them at about £33 per cartridge.

Overall, this printer is a really nice, durable and little printer for what It can do. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking for a good printer to use.
