The HP LaserJet CP1515 is a color laser printer designed for the home or small office user. Its strong balance of size, print speed, print quality, and price make it a great choice for the small office. It may be a little slow if shared among too many users, but redeems itself with the high quality laser printer toner cartridges.
Small office and home office user have specific needs. Most do not need the fastest speeds or the most features available, but instead look for a printer with solid print quality, decent printing speeds, and an affordable price. Space is usually a main consideration as well, as home and small office users often need a compact printer. The HP CP1515 manages to strike a nice balance of all these aspects, and it is built for this type of user.The CP1515 is compact enough to fit into most small office spaces. It weighs around 40 pounds, meaning it can be moved around by one or two people.
The printer's price is very affordable, and HP LaserJet CP1515 toner prices are fairly economical, especially when using third-party compatible cartridges. They are more affordable than most of the competition, including Epson CX11N toner. HP LaserJet CP1515 toner cartridges have a capacity of 2,200 pages for the black HP CP1515 toner cartridge, and 1,400 pages for each color HP CP1515 toner cartridge.
Printing speed is the only major downside of the LaserJet CP1515. It prints at around 12 pages per minute for monochrome, and 8 pages per minute in color. First page out times are quite slow as well, at around 26 seconds average. This is part of the balance to bring the unit's price down to an affordable range, but it is definitely below average for its class. Print quality is excellent. Text is extremely sharp, even at small font sizes. Color printing is a little below average for a color laser, but still passable. Users who plan to do a lot of color printing may want to look at more expensive models, such as an HP CP3505 toner printer.
Overall, the HP Color LaserJet CP1515 offers great text quality and decent printing speeds in a compact and affordable package. Speeds will probably seem too slow in a networked office where time can be critical.
