HP Color LaserJet CP1215 review: HP Color LaserJet CP1215

 

HP Color LaserJet CP1215

Easy installation; prints high-quality color documents; supports manual duplexing; small footprint.

Expensive; not compatible with Mac OS; slow color prints; lacks LCD display; ships with bite-size cartridges; fixed resolution.

The Color LaserJet CP1215 is HP's entry-level printer built to serve small workgroups, but it suffers from frustratingly slow print speeds, a missing LCD screen, and other problems. Your $299 will go much further with the Dell 1320c, another color...

HP Color LaserJet CP1215 Review

 

Assuming you allow for lasers' newsletter-illustrations rather than framed-prints photo output, you won't be disappointed in the HP's print quality. Times New Roman text was legible in sizes as low as 6 points, though fancy script fonts predictably...

An extremely cheap colour laser printer

Cheap for a colour laser printer

Slow, overall quality slightly inconsistent

You can’t expect a $390 colour laser printer to demonstrate the very latest in performance and quality. However, for those who primarily want decent graphics, and who would also like to occasionally run off text jobs, this printer is better than its...

HP Color LaserJet CP1215

 

If you didn't work it out already, it's a colour laser printer, just spelt incorrectly. They'll work it out eventually.

Software installation is quick and easy, with drivers for all versions of Windows after 2000 available on the CD and Linux drivers available for download. There are no OSX drivers offered for this machine, either on the software CD or on the support...

HP Color LaserJet CP1215

 

The HP Color LaserJet CP1215 is an inexpensive color laser printer that gives good color prints but is a bit on the slower side.

Inexpensive ; Good Color Prints ; Low Cost of Running

Slow Printing Speed ; Average Text Print Quality

If you are looking for an affordable color laser printer that can give photo prints comparable to an inkjet photo printer and you are not that concerned about printing speed, than you should go for the HP CP1215 printer.

HP LaserJet CP1215 review

 

You probably wouldn't guess the price tag from the HP CP1215's looks alone. It's not the most eye-catching printer we've seen, but the casing is sturdy enough. Perhaps the slightly loose sliding mechanism on the paper tray is a hint, and we did need to...
