HP Laserjet 1000 Printer – Basic and Affordable Laser Printing


The HP Laserjet 1000 printer is one of HP’s most basic, entry-level laser machines. It’s been on the market for almost a decade, meaning its now a fairly dated technology and lacks many of the innovative features of newer machines. However, for a home office user only in need of the basics, it presents an affordable option.

Top Features of the HP Laserjet 1000

The Laserjet 1000 is something of a workhorse. It’s not particularly fast by modern standards of printing speed, being capable of a mere 10 pages per minute. However, it is capable of printing a large quantity of documents. It includes an input tray which holds 250 sheets and an output tray with a capacity for 125 sheets. This means that while it may not print quickly, you can set up large printing tasks and let them run while you focus on other things. You don’t have to be constantly managing the printer.

The machine includes a USB interface – and, unlike many other printers produced by HP, this machine does include a USB cable.

Another plus with this unit is its small size. It’s more compact than many laser printers, weighing only 15.9 pounds, so that may be a benefit to consider if you’re running low on office space.

Downsides of the Laserjet 1000 Printer

While this machine was impressive when it was first released, many of its features have become quite dated. For instance, the resolution is nothing to write home about at 600 by 600 dots per inch. As mentioned, the print speed also lags far behind many competing models and the majority of HP’s own newer units. However, the machine does include resolution enhancement software, so you can bump up the resolution on important prints to 1200 x 600 dots per inch. However, that still lags behind a lot of competitors.

The machine is also lagging somewhat when it comes to compatibility with Macs, although it does function well with most Windows operating systems from 98 through to XP. If you’re running anything newer than that, you might run into problems. In other words, by purchasing this printer you’re also restricting yourself in terms of future operating system upgrades for your PC. If you’re in business, you don’t want to be limiting your use of technology.

Consumer Response to the HP Laserjet 1000 Printer

Many users are happy with this unit because of its no-frills approach to printing. It doesn’t include a lot of bells and whistles, but it gets the job done – and that’s the way some customers like it. If you know you’re unlikely to make use of all the interesting but largely impractical features of newer printers, that’s one reason to consider the Laserjet 1000.

That said, this machine is fairly limited to home business users. It’s unlikely to provide the features to satisfy a casual home user, and it may not be able to handle the extremely heavy workloads thrown at it in a large organization.
