Laserjet P1505

 

HP targets the entry-level laser market with the impressively speedy, if otherwise unremarkable, LaserJet P1505 monochrome printer. For reasons explained below, I disliked the design, and the print quality varies from slightly disappointing to...

Inexpensive Fast, especially printing graphics

Skimpy design; pricey toner Awful graphics quality

The LaserJet P1505 doesn't look like much, especially compared with the Samsung ML-1630--which is also $199--but it's a lot faster. I think HP cut a few too many corners in designing it, but those seeking a no-nonsense workhorse may be willing to put...

In addition to its larger footprint, the P1505 offers a higher paper capacity, at 250 sheets. Like the P1006, it adds a nice touch in the form of a 10-sheet multipurpose tray, so you can print on special paper without having to swap out the paper in...

Fast. Reasonably high-quality output, particularly for text. Network and Wi-Fi options. Good paper handling

Comes without printed documentation. Even the installation guide is on disc

Small, fast, and offering reasonably high-quality output, the HP LaserJet P1505 Printer is a terrific fit for anyone who needs a personal mono laser printer.

Review: HP LaserJet P1505n: Best Small Office Network Printers

 

Bright Hub reviews the HP LaserJet p1505n. We recommend it for one of the best values in a monochrome laser printer for small or home offices. Although it can be a network printer, it should not be in a large office, due to its monthly duty cycle....

Bright Hub highly recommends this printer for small offices and departments needing a volume of printing ranging from 250 – 2000 pages per month.

Great Printer - inuse at industral plants

 

We replaced oki320 printers with P1505n printers when we moved to laser forms at our plants. We have hundrerds of these printers out there. 4 years later, I'm still waiting for one of them to break. We do use these for our lower volume plants. Larger...

Cheap price. Great work horse

Small paper tray. 250-sheet input tray. They go through ink FAST. I do not think HP makes this model anymore

HP LaserJet P1505

 

Great very small footprint printer for the vast majority of my family's printing needs. Fast and very reliable. Networking is easy with this printer.

Small. Fast. Networks very reliably wirelessly for 6 computers through our router using an ethernet cable connected to the router. We have a second printer in the house which is an inkjet used for color and better graphics; but we hardly need it....

This is not a good printer for grephics presentation or photography, but it's great for printing out the majority of our work

Worst printer I ever owned

 

This is the second printer in two days. After speaking to the techs, I was told to return it to the store for a third one! It doesn't work after printing 40-50 pages. No matter what was tried, it just won't print. Total waste of time.

Good quality print

This stops working after printing 40-50 pages

Limited use

 

The current standard workaround for the PDF printing issue will not work from a Windows 7 to Windows 7 share as the option to select "send for each page" (assuming you have googled and found this answer) is not an option. It is a grayed out item. This...

Good little USB printer for a single computer

Not good on the network. If you are looking a network printer either using the internal network port or even shared via another computer in your workgroup - keep looking ; This printer prints painfully slow using the Ethernet connection. What is worse...

Consumer review by:

Excellent printer

 

So far this has proven to be an excellent HP printer. Keep in mind that high-volume printing will eat up the small toner cartridge.
