Though it may seem like all manufacturers of office equipment are going in the way of multiple functions in one machine, some are still producing high-end, single-purpose devices, such as the HP LaserJet P2010. This printer uses intelligent laser technology and top quality printer toner to produce documents that meet professional standards at a rate that will be sufficient in a fast-paced office environment. However, the P2010 is not suited for all offices, as its capabilities do have a ceiling that makes it most suitable for small businesses.
The monthly duty cycle is 10,000 pages printed, which should not be exceeded if optimal lifespan is desired. This machine is a workhorse but will burn out if overused. The provided connection options are a USB and a parallel port, both limited to a single PC. Universal adapters are available if networking is desired, but the P2010 may not bode well as a shared printer as its memory capacity is only 32 MB.
Even as a monochrome laser printer, the maximum resolution is 1200x1200 dpi using the HP P2010 toner. This is surprisingly impressive for black-and-white documents. The manufacturer provides a start LaserJet P2010 toner cartridge that can yield up to 3,000 pages, but more options are available when replacement toners are needed. A high-capacity HP P2010 toner cartridge can be purchased that can produce up to 7,000 prints, more than double the standard size. Also, MICR LaserJet P2010 toner is available, which is used for check printing.
Up to 24 pages per minute can be printed with a first-page-out time of less than 10 seconds, fueled by the 264 MHz processor. The maximum paper capacity is 550 sheets with the addition of a second tray, and various paper types can be held. Compatible HP P2010 toner provides affordability and the compact size makes it convenient for small offices.

The P2010 offers both fast speeds and sharp output, making it a great choice for a busy small office. It can output up to 27 pages per minute, and its 1200 dpi resolution provides sharp and accurate text and graphics. With an initial paper capacity of 300 sheets, it can also be expanded in the future.
Find and press the toner button at the top of the machine to release the access door, then open it toward you. The HP P2010 toner cartridge has a small handle on its front. Grasp the handle and remove it from the printer.
Take the new LaserJet P2010 toner cartridge out of its box, setting aside the packing materials and removing it from the bag as well. Tilt the cartridge back and forth several times to loosen up the toner powder inside before you install. You must also remove the packing tape by pulling it straight out of the cartridge.
Aligning with the guide rails, slide the P2010 cartridge into the opening and let it settle in place. Press on the cartridge to make sure it is fully locked, then you can close the front access panel.
You are now ready to resume printing with your HP LaserJet P2010 printer.
