HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf MFP review

 

The HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf is an entry-level monochrome multifunction laser printer that cuts only a couple of corners on its way to supplying print, copy, scan, and fax functionality for only $200. Built-in autoduplexing for double-sided printing and...

The HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf is a compact mono laser MFP that boasts a cheap price, a compact design, dead-simple installation, and quick print speeds.

To hit its low price, the HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf leaves off a few features, including autoduplexing, Wi-Fi, and a full-size paper tray.

The HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf is the company's cheapest monochrome multifunction laser printer. For the money, it earns our recommendation for its Smart Install feature and excellent value.

Fix for scanning using W7

 

Don't know where I found this driver but it works for me. I have W7 64bit. Delete whatever driver you have installed. Install: LJM1130_M1210_MFP_FULL_SOLUTION.EXE. Good luck

No cons. This driver solved all my problems.

Consumer review by: Lorenzo1212 (cnet.com)

There appear to be drivers up to Windows 8.

 

The greed heads really make me angry because I will probably get a year's use out of this thing before it no longer works before I am forced to switch to windows 10. I am using Vista now, and unless somebody comes out with a new driver I am screwed AGAIN.

Very easy to set up.

The fact that the planned obsolescence of the scanner seems well nigh.
