Laser Printer - Hewlett Packard

My favorite type of printer is a laser. The print quality is fantastic and speed if remarkable. One other thing I really like about laser printers is that they are gentle on consumables.

I used to have an ink jet type printer and I was constantly having to clean the print heads and each time I did, I was wasting ink. That doesn't happen with a laser printer.

As many electronic gizmos of late, laser printer prices have fallen to historic lows. It's quite common to find a great laser printer for under $100.

Such is the case with this unit from Hewlett Packard. I've always liked HP printers because they perform flawlessly. This small printer is big on features and performance and yet very gentle on the pocketbook.

If you are looking for a simple printer that does its job, doesn't complain, and has a small appetite for consumables, I would encourage you to give this printer your consideration.

Small footprint, 1200dpi output, 17 pages per minute print speed, less than $100 price tag. Pretty amazing I would say!

Note for those folks on Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6.x): It took HP a couple of weeks to release updated drivers for Snow Leopard but they finally have. You can find them here. If you've already updated your operation system to 10.6.1, you should be ok.
