The HP LaserJet 1000 laser printer is designed for the personal user or small office. High quality printing and simple usability are assets, but slower speeds might hold some buyers back. If a color printer is required at similar print speeds, the LaserJet 2500 toner printer should be considered.
The HP 1000 laser printer is certainly designed to be a simple, streamlined laser model for the personal user. It offers the basic monochrome printing that a user needs, without any extra frills. Print quality is excellent, text is sharp and defined. Graphics quality is average, but it has the problems common to most lasers.
Setup is very simple. Install the software, remove some packing materials, install the toner and drum, connect the cables, and you're set. The unit connects only via USB, and only includes support for Windows. Mac and Linux machines are not supported. Using the machine is just as simple as setting it up. The driver software offers simple access to all of its features, but keeps the interface simple and easy to understand.
Capacities are pretty generous for a personal LaserJet toner model. The input tray holds 250 sheets of paper, and the output tray holds 125 sheets. The LaserJet 1000 also includes a straight-through path, fed from the back of the unit, which supports thicker or larger media that can not be fed through the main tray.
HP LaserJet 1000 toner cartridges have a capacity of 2,500 pages, which results in a per-page cost of around 2.6 cents per page. Replacement laser toner cartridges are available online for much less, allowing for very economical printing. Installation of the printer toner cartridge is very easy, as the HP 1000 toner cartridge simply slides right into the printer.
Print speeds are generally pretty slow, at 8.2 pages per minute for text and 8 pages per minute for graphics prints. Users have reported frequent issues with paper jams and other feeding problems.
Overall, the HP LaserJet 1000 might make a good choice for the personal user who needs great print quality in a machine that is simple to operate. Slower speeds and possible paper jam problems make it worth looking at the competition before buying.
