HP LaserJet Pro P1566 review


The LaserJet Pro1566 is the first laser printer we've ever reviewed that doesn't require you to install drivers from a CD. Instead, the printer can install its own drivers over its USB connection. This isn't the first time HP has used this Plug and...

HP LaserJet P1566 review


A small and compact mono laser printer

Small; compact; low initial outlay; good print quality

Noisy; USB only; not suited to large volume printing; no high-capacity toner cartridge available
