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

 

Review: Hewlett-Packard's LaserJet 1200 is poised to replace the HP LaserJet 1100xi, a low-cost laser we've known and loved for its excellent print quality and its versatile copy/scan attachment. Improving on a good thing can be difficult, but in this...

Stellar output quality at a fast clip; Mac compatible; handy copy/scan attachment available

No way to increase input capacity; design limits access to cables

Fast and intelligently designed, the LaserJet 1200 delivers stunning output at an unbeatable price to SOHO users and small workgroups.

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...

"Druckqualität ist gut"

 

Zunächst liefert der Drucker eine gute Druckqualität. Mittlerweile habe ich 35.000 Seiten gedruckt, da jammed der Drucker fast jedes zweite Blatt bei z.B. 20 oder 30 Blättern in Folge. Durch die starke Hitzeentwicklung verändern sich die Blätter und...

der Drucker liefert ein gutes Druckbild

Beim Druck vieler Blätter gibt es mehrere Probleme: Papierauffang zu klein, Drucker wird sehr heiß, doppelseitiger Druck nicht ganz einfach
