?The HP LaserJet Pro P1102w hits all the right bases for any personal monochrome laser. It is petite and light, it is quick, plus it provides reasonably high-quality results across the board. It's got enhanced speed as well as output quality plus the addition of WiFi as standard, to help you share it simply. The P1102w is smaller as well as lighter in weight when compared with numerous ink jets - a significant thing to consider if you want a printer that will not occupy a great deal of desktop real estate. The P1102w measures just 7.7 by 13.7 by 9.4 inches (HWD) and furthermore weighs 11.6 pounds. As you might expect from the modest size, the unit provides just minimal paper capacity, at 150 sheets for the principal tray. That ought to be sufficient for almost all personal use, however its just a little small if you are looking to make use of the WiFi link to share the printer between several individuals. Aiding to make up for the minimal paper capacity is the benefit of a 10-sheet multipurpose tray, which in turn enables you to print with various kinds of paper-checks or even letterhead for instance - and never have to swap out the paper in the main tray or perhaps manually feed every page utilizing a single-sheet manual feed. As stated by HP the machine is sold with drivers with regard to Vista 64-bit; both 32- as well as 64-bit variants of Windows 7, XP, Server 2003, and also Server 2008; and also Mac OS X version 10.4 through 10.6. Additionally, HP states it is possible to acquire drivers with regard to "nearly any Linux distribution available today" through HP's Web site. As with most low-end mono lasers, physical set up is simple. As soon as installed, the P1102w functions swimmingly. The engine is ranked at 19 pages per minute (ppm), which unfortunately even for a personal printer is actually moderate by the current criteria. Nevertheless, the actual throughput is actually a match with regard to other printers having quicker rated speeds. I timed this on the business software suite at a total of 7 minutes 36 seconds. The P1102w additionally scored fairly efficiently on output quality. Textual content through the HP LaserJet Pro P1102w toner cartridge was at the lower end of a limited range where the majority of mono lasers fall, but nonetheless inside the range. Over fifty percent of the fonts on our textual content test were both very easily understandale and properly formed at 6 points, and all except one greatly stylised font using heavy strokes passed both thresholds at 8 points. Except if you possess an uncommon need for small fonts, or perhaps need to print top-quality desktop publishing output, you shouldn't have any complaints concerning the text. Graphics quality was completely average for monochrome lasers - adequate for just about any internal company use, yet well short of the high quality a lot of people might need with regard to ads or other output that should seem totally professional. Amongst other concerns, I noticed visible dithering in the form of clear graininess as well as, in certain images, an unwelcome darkish band inside a solid grey region. The printer additionally had some problems with slim lines, but that's perhaps the most common problem. The P1102w in fact handles thin lines a lot better than a lot of printers. Pictures were likewise typical regarding monochrome lasers. They are sufficient with regard to printing Web pages including pictures on them. Based on just how demanding you are, chances are you'll consider them adequate for a client newsletter or the like. If you do not anticipate you'll print large quantities the HP LaserJet Pro P1102w's balance of small size, fast speed, as well as fairly high-quality output should make it a more than acceptable option as possibly a personal printer in virtually any size business office or even as a shared printer within an office with simply two or three people.
