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...

The HP LaserJet P1505 Printer delivers everything you need in a personal black-and-white laser.

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.

HP Laserjet P1505

 

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...

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.

HP LaserJet P1505n review

 

A networkable printer, but does it justify its pricetag?

Decent print speeds

Quite noisy ; Print quality is mixed

A fairly good printer, but you can find better elsewhere for a similar price

Product Specifications

Need a hard-working desktop printer you can rely on? With features never before available in a personal HP LaserJet, the P1505 series is ideal for producing effective business communications. Surprisingly fast! Be more productive with professional print speeds up to 24 pages per minute (ppm) and a quick first page out. Other printers need time to warm up before printing the first page, but with no-wait Instant-on Technology your first page will print in half the time. New, patented spherically shaped toner is specially designed for consistent, high-quality results at fast speeds. For even greater cost efficiency, share the P1505n printer with more than one person. This model comes with basic integrated networking capability and PCL5e support, so you can quickly and easily connect as many as five users. The 250-sheet adjustable main tray provides ample paper volume for an individual or small work team.
