HP LaserJet Enterprise 600 Printer M603N

 

At 62 pages per minute, the HP LaserJet Enterprise 600 Printer M603N ($1,499 direct) has the fastest rated speed of any printer we've reviewed. And its 275,000-page maximum monthly duty cycle, as well as substantial standard and optional paper...

Fast. Prodigious monthly duty cycle. Secure password-protected printing. Low cost per page

Lacks an automatic duplexer

The HP LaserJet Enterprise 600 Printer M603N provides wicked-fast monochrome printing for workgroups with massive printing needs.

HP LaserJet 1018 Laser Printer (12 PPM, 1200x1200 DPI, B&W, 2MB, PC)

 

At just $130 (as of 8/4/2006), the HP LaserJet 1018 is the cheapest model in HP's current compact monochrome laser printer lineup. It costs $50 less than the almost identical LaserJet 1020 that we reviewed a year ago, but it sacrifices only a little...

Compact design ; Easy to maintain

Has a high cost per page ; Slower than most mono lasers

Tiny, easy-to-use unit is slower but also cheaper than most recent personal mono lasers.

HP Laserjet 3030 All-In-One Printer (14 PPM, 1200x1200 DPI, B&W, 32MB, PC/Mac)

Fairly compact ; Text looked dark and clean

Slow scanning ; Subpar speed and image quality

Subpar speed and image quality make this small laser multifunction printer tough to recommend.

HP Laserjet 1200 15PPM 1200dpi Psl5e/6

 

WHAT'S HOT: The LaserJet 1200's text-printing is quite fast for a SOHO model, though it's slightly slower over a USB connection than over a parallel connection. At 11.7 pages per minute, it wouldn't look out of place on the corporate chart, though...

Consumer review by: WizKid52 (shopzilla.com)

HP 1200 is a product to avoid.

 

Crisp clear print, easy to use.

Doesn't hold up well. Fusing assembly falls apart.

Consumer review by: Online Shopper (shopzilla.com)

HP 1200 Series Printers are junk!

 

When it works, it works good, It just doesn't hold up.

Built very cheaply, and has lots of problems.
