For personal users who want laser quality in smaller office spaces, the HP LaserJet 1005 makes a good solution. Paper handling is adequate for the home or small office, as is the speed of 14 pages per minute. High-capacity LaserJet 1005 printer toner is available for a low price, and the unit has a compact, space-saving design.
In a small office, every inch matters, and the 1005 won't overtake a desk surface. It measures 10x16.3x19.1 inches, and weighs just 16.1 pounds with the single HP 1005 toner cartridge installed. The single input tray can handle up to 250 sheets of plain paper at a time, and also support envelopes, labels, and other media types.
Connectivity might not be as versatile as some buyers would like, with only USB and parallel connections available. Even if wired or wireless networking support were included, however, its small capacities wouldn't be well-suited to shared environments. As it stands, it is better qualified for the individual with low to moderate printing volume needs.
The maximum speed of 14 pages per minute is adequate enough for personal use, but its first page out time of 10 seconds is potentially more important for light-duty use. This means it will be quick to respond for small print tasks, even if it doesn't reach its maximum output speed.
One of the more compelling reasons to purchase the 1005 is for its low-cost replacement toners. The high-capacity LaserJet 1005 toner cartridges can yield as many as 3,500 pages before expiring, and prices are reasonable. Third-party vendors offer remanufactured HP 1005 toner at a fraction of the cost, while offering the same quality.
The main drawbacks of the 1005 are its lack of exciting features. Without newer features like mobile printing and wireless networking, it can be easy to overlook it. Those who want a simple, reliable personal printer could find it very attractive, however, particularly given its inexpensive HP 1005 toner supplies.
