Looking for personal inkjet printer? If so, check out the HP Deskjet 1000. The monthly duty cycle for this machine is about 1,000 pages, so those who print a ton of pages every month may want to look elsewhere. However, for businessmen looking for something to print a few text documents from home with, it will be well suited and efficient. It also is compatible with a number of different paper types, making it versatile, like brochure paper, inkjet paper, photo paper, transparencies, greeting cards, envelopes and labels. Easy to carry around, the mobile unit weighs only 4.4 pounds and it will easily find a spot for in even a crowded home office too, thanks to its 16.5x14.9x4.8 inch size.
Because this is a monochrome inkjet unit, only one black HP 1000 ink cartridge is needed for prints. This tank of printer ink will last about 790 pages before expiring, so buyers probably won't need to replace Deskjet 1000 ink too frequently. The only problem with the HP 1000 ink is that it will become a little pricey over the life of the printer.
For those who want to own this machine and not go into debt there is really only one option—using remanufactured Deskjet 1000 ink cartridges from third party vendors. These versions of printer ink will last just as long and work just as well as the OEM HP 1000 ink, but they will cost only a fraction of the price.
The biggest downfall with the Plus has got to be its speeds. Black-and-white documents can only be produced at speeds of 16 pages per minute. For those with deadlines this could become an annoyance, especially when there are so many units with faster speeds on the market. The highest resolutions possible though can reach 4800x1200 dpi.

With printing speeds of up to 16 pages per minute, the Deskjet 1000 greatly outperforms its purchase price. Its compact design is a great fit for home users, yet it can still handle media up to 11x17 inches in size. With a weight of only 4.4 pounds, it is very easy to set up and to move around.
Although the model shown differs in appearance, the process is the same.
With the printer plugged in and turned on, lift the top cover and wait a moment for the cartridge carrier to move into view.
The two cartridges are color-coded. Lift the cover of the HP 1000 cartridge you plan to replace, and lift it out of the printer.
Open the box for the 1000 cartridge and remove it, then carefully open and remove the plastic bag as well. Squeeze the handles and pry the plastic protector away from the cartridge, then grasp and pull the piece of tape protecting the print heads.
Slide the replacement Deskjet 1000 ink cartridge into the opening, then flip down the small cover and make sure it clicks into place. Slowly lower the top cover to finish the installation.
You are now ready to resume printing with your HP Deskjet 1000 printer.
