LaserJet 1000 Laser Printer


HP's low-cost, home-focused monochrome laser printer cuts corners on design but makes attractive prints.

The LaserJet 1000 doesn't take up much desk space--it's only 16 inches wide and 19 inches deep--and its paper tray holds 250 sheets, enough for a busy individual. Like the LaserJet 1200, its paper tray doesn't slide out, which makes adding paper...

HP LaserJet 1000


Brainless beginnings Unpack the LaserJet 1000 and you're nearly good to go; the printer does most of the work for you. Just install the integrated toner and drum cartridge, plug in the cables (HP includes all of them), insert the CD-ROM, and you're all...

Easy setup; simple to use; helpful paper, online, and video documentation; whisper-quiet operation.

Poky text speeds; paper input tray feels flimsy; supports USB only; not Mac compatible.

An inexpensive laser printer aimed at home users with little or no computer experience.

HP Business Inkjet 1000


Setup is straightforward. The printer measures 8.5 by 19.5 by 16.2 inches (HWD) and weighs 18.5 pounds, making it easy to move. One unusual touch is that you have to install four ink cartridges and four printheads. Having separate printheads and...

Text is near the high end for ink jet printers. Separate printheads and cartridges. High-capacity ink system. Duty cycle is 6,250 pages per month

Performance is acceptable, but not stellar. Photo and graphics quality are midrange for an ink jet

The HP Business Inkjet 1000 brings business-oriented ink jet design to its lowest price yet, with the business orientation showing in better text than most ink jets, a 6,250-pages-per-month duty cycle, and a high-capacity ink system with separate...

HP LaserJet 1000


HP invented the desktop laser, but the HP LaserJet 1000 ($250) falls short of the competition. It comes with a parallel-to-USB adapter cable, but the single-bin paper handling with no manual feed slot is limiting. And it offers no controls or power...

Sentey GSP1000-SM 1000W Modular PSU


Although we've looked at quite a few PSUs from Ultra Products, Zalman, Thermaltake, NZXT and FSP, today is the first time we've had a Sentey PSU on our bench. Sentey is no stranger to the PC scene and they've been making power supplies, coolers and...

Low electrical noise ; Math specs it out over 1200W - so should handle load ; Lots of peripheral and SATA connectors ; Very stable under heavy load ; 14cm fan is very quiet and cools well ; Standard size should work in almost every system ; Unique...

Not widely available (and they should be!)

The Sentey 1000W GSP1000-SP Power Supply is in the top dog over at Sentey and it is their flagship product - both in terms of power output and efficiency. Sentey's 80PLUS Gold line ranges from 750W to this 1000W unit, and is geared toward consumers...

Sentey GSP1000-SM 1000W Power Supply Video Review


The Sentey GSP1000-SM 1000W Power Supply is 80 Plus Gold Certified, has a quiet 140mm fan, modular leads, single +12V rail and comes with a 7 year warranty. Also, this Power Supply is available in wattages ranging from 650-1000, so you can get the one...

HP Deskjet 1000 Inkjet Printer Review


If you're on a budget and don't need stellar quality, this will meet your needs

Low price point; Simple setup

Slow print time; No wireless capability

So what does $30 get you these days? Dinner at a cheap restaurant, a couple of DVDs or a HP Deskjet 1000. That certainly makes it one of the cheapest printers available, but whether it represents great value for money depends on what you are looking...

Review: HP Mini 1000 Netbook


Netbooks are fairly new to the market. It was only a year ago that the first ones became available, and since then they have grown in popularity. They became very popular very quickly because of their small size and small price tag. Not being one to be...

I really like the HP Mini 1000 and I think for someone who is always on the go it would be a great companion device. The keyboard and screen are small, but that is what keeps this Netbook lite and easy to carry. I am giving the HP Mini 1000 my 5 star...
