The HP LaserJet P3005 laser printer is designed for the home or small office. It has a lot of paper capacity and solid printing speeds for its size and price. Many configurations are available to suit different needs.
The HP P3005 laser printer manages to be fairly compact, despite its larger than average paper capacity. The unit measures 12.2 inches by 16.7 inches by 16.1 inches (HWD) and weighs only 36 pounds. This makes it easy to move by one or two people, though it may be just a little too large for a small home office. With its price and paper handling capabilities, however, even home users should consider making room for it.
The control panel is straightforward and simple, but extremely functional, like the HP P1005 toner printer. With only a few buttons and a two-line LCD, navigating the menus is simple and effective. The LCD screen is backlit, making it easier to read in low light or high glare situations. This is a welcome addition for a printer at this price point and makes it easy to tell when the HP toner cartridge needs to be replaced. The unit comes with an excellent user manual, but it is also possible to print help documents directly from the menu that instruct users how to load trays, load special media, etc.
HP LaserJet P3005 toner cartridges come in two sizes. The standard laser toner cartridge has a page yield of 6,500 pages, while the high-yield printer toner cartridge has a page yield of 13,000 pages. Third-party compatible HP P3005 toner cartridges are also available, which will reduce the per-page cost significantly.
Paper capacity is 500 sheets in the main drawer and 100 sheets in the multipurpose tray. Connections include USB 2.0 and parallel. The HP P3005 comes in many different configurations to suit different needs. N models, such as the P3005n and P3005dn, have an ethernet port built in for connecting directly to a network for sharing to multiple computers. D models, such as the P3005d and P3005dn, come with duplexing built in for two-sided printing. The P3005x combines all of these features and adds extra paper capacity.
Print speed is about average for the price point, at around 23 pages per minute. Text is very sharp and defined, and graphics are above average for a laser.
Overall, the LaserJet P3005 offers more paper capacity than one would expect for the price, and solid speed and quality. Multiple configurations make it easy to find the one that fits your needs.
