Excellent monochrome and color text printing.

Space hog; limited expandability; add-ons can get expensive.

The HP Color LaserJet 3500 is a good printer for a home office or a small business that needs quality printing but not expandability.

HP Color LaserJet 1600

 

The 1600 is also, thankfully, relatively light (for a color laser), at 40.5 pounds, and relatively small, at 14.6 by 16.1 by 17.8 inches (HWD). The overall measurements make it sound bulkier than it actually is because it's smaller at the top than at...

Low price. Reasonable speed. Low price. Reasonably high quality across the board. Low price

Slight misregistration in graphics, with thin slices of white showing between blocks of color

The HP Color LaserJet 1600 lowers the entry-level price for color laser printing while still offering reasonable speed and quality.

HardwareCentral - HP Color LaserJet 1600 Review.

 

But a nip here and a tuck there add up to a different printer. Compared to the 2600N, the Color LaserJet 1600 lacks an Ethernet connector, defining it as a USB 2.0 desktop device for a single user instead of small-office sharing. It supports Windows 98...

At 40 pounds, the HP is lighter than many color lasers; it's a bit awkward but doable for one person, and easy for two, to wrestle the printer out of its packaging. Flip down its front panel, and you'll see the black, yellow, cyan, and magenta...

HP Color LaserJet CP1515n - Colour Laser Printer

 

Colour laser printers aren't just for big offices, as the HP Color LaserJet CP1515n proves.

Unlike the cheaper Color LaserJet CP1215, this machine doesn't use a host-based driver, so can be coupled up to a PC or a Mac and run as either a PCL or Postscript device, making it much more versatile. HP makes no specific mention of Linux drivers,...

HP Color LaserJet 1600

 

Colour laser printers are becoming increasingly affordable. But are the running costs prohibitive?

The Color LaserJet 1600 uses an in-line engine, which means black and colour prints should take pretty much the same time. This is borne out by our test results, where our five-page mono text document took 56 seconds to complete and our five-page...

HP LaserJet 1600

 

The price of colour-laser technology has been steadily falling for several years. Now, finally, HP has brought out a sub-£200 colour laser. Such a price would have seemed unthinkable just two years ago but, with a raft of competent models currently...

In terms of physical build and operation, the LaserJet 1600 is excellent. With consumables costing as much as the printer itself, running expenses are a concern and text output is quite slow. However, those wanting a cheap laser for colour graphics...

Low running cost ; Affordable price-tag

Slow

This printer comes with relatively low cost of printing and average features but was lagging behind in performance.

HP Color LaserJet CP1515n

 

All the main consumer printer manufacturers produce a low-cost colour laser and HP's cheapest offering for Mac users is the Color LaserJet CP1515n. It's designed for the home or small office and is network-ready, as well as having a standard USB...

This is a good, basic colour laser printer that's easy to maintain and produces fine text and business graphics, though you may have to fiddle to get the photo colouring you need. In all, this is very much an entry-level machine
