by erin on February 12, 2010

Taking the measure of the HP LaserJet P1006 printer is easy enough to do, and will quickly reveal a monochrome laser printer that comes to its user for an impressively low price. It will also deliver to its user good print speed and excellent print quality with the HP LaserJet P1006 toner, that is usually superior to competitor printers at its price point, which is around $125 new and in the box.

Given the price of this printer, it certainly seems to offer more than enough features to help it stand out from its competition.  It will also certainly be attractive to those small office/home office entrepreneurs who are operating on a limited budget or who wish to save a little money in these economically-challenging times many businesses find themselves in.

Print speed as advertised by Hewlett-Packard for this printer comes in at about 17 pages per minute, which is actually exceptional for a printer going for somewhere between $80 and $125, that is also a laser printer model. Print speeds may be higher or lower depending upon the richness and character of the print job being sent to the printer, by the way.

It is also a very light printer, coming in at about 10 1/2 pounds and in a compact size to boot. This means it will fit nicely on any desktop or on the shelf next to a computer, where it can sit out of the way and humming along nicely.  HP seems to have designed this printer to do quite capably and ably under almost any print environment.

The LaserJet P1006 is made to deliver print quality that can only be rated as excellent, seeing as how it uses 1,200 dots per inch print resolution to do its work. Most other printers at this price category usually only supply 600 dots per inch, but this printer doubles that easily through means of one of Hewlett-Packard’s image enhancement technology tools.

A user will be able to connect this HP printer quite quickly to a computer via means of its supplied USB port. Keep in mind that Hewlett-Packard does not provide a USB cable with the printer, so count on spending a few dollars extra that will be needed to get one. Once it’s plugged in, it will install the necessary drivers to enable the printer to be put to work quite quickly.

The printer comes standard with 8 MB of RAM, and it will use the computer’s processing power to do most of its work. An onboard microprocessor of 266 MHz keeps everything humming along speedily and with no fuss, by the way. It will take its 160 sheets of total paper storage capacity and put it to good use, taking advantage of its ability to work by using most Windows-based and Mac-based operating systems.

The HP LaserJet P1006 printer is also fairly durable, coming in at a fine 5,000 pages per month maximum duty cycle. This means it will be a rare occurrence indeed if any serious maintenance is ever needed on this laser printer. Looked at in its entirety, and when considering all of the features and conveniences that the P1006 provides, the price it’s going for would almost seem to be a bargain.

Bargains can also be found when you need HP LaserJet P1006 toner when doing a search for HP toner online.  Replacement toner can be found at such great prices, you’ll wonder why you would ever look anywhere else.
