Shopping-and-Product-Reviews The HP LaserJet 1012 is a cost effective, mid level personal laser printer that performs similarly to office grade machines. What the unit sacrifices in speed, it attempts to make up for in affordability and size management, as well as visual appeal. Though the HP LaserJet 1012 is a stripped down machine with no dedicated LCD screen or multifunctional options, as a laser printer alone it functions quite nicely, and was designed to suit a home or small office well. Its notably small footprint consisting of a depth of 9 inches and a width of 14.6 inches makes the device desktop friendly, and a height of only 8.2 inches means it could easily squeeze anywhere its inkjet counterparts can go. The models weight of exactly 13 pounds also keeps it manageable, and makes frequent relocations possible if necessary, as the HP LaserJet 1012 is not a network ready device. Its speed is at least average for its category, with up to 14 pages per minute for legal sized paper, and up to 15 pages per minute for letter size. A minimal first page out time of only 8 seconds also helps to keep even single page prints moving along at an acceptable speed. Another time saving feature included with the product is an automatic language switching function which switches printer languages based on the incoming print job. Resolutions are adjustable to a standard 600 x 600 dots per inch, as well as a high quality 600 x 1200 dots per inch for clearer imagery, charts, and graphs. Lower quality settings are also selectable for optimal print speed, and an EconoMode is available as well to cut down on toner usage. HP includes a user friendly software package with the HP LaserJet 1012 that not only includes drivers and install programs, but useful tools as well such as a utility for resizing multiple pages to fit onto single pages. A manual duplex mode can then allow for double sided printing, cutting down on paper usage exponentially. The HP LaserJet 1012 also supports watermark printing, for the hobbyist who requires an artistic touch, or confidential documents with stamped background lettering. Booklet printing is made possible via included software. With 8 MBs of included RAM, the HP LaserJet 1012 should function smoothly under virtually any workload, regardless of complexity. Paper handling specifications are acceptable as well, with a 150 sheet document tray which has the ability to load up to 20 envelopes automatically. A priority feed slot is also incorporated into the hardware and holds ten sheets, or an additional, single envelope. An output bin of 125 sheets is designed with large projects in mind, and the HP LaserJet 1012s maximum monthly duty cycle of 7,000 imprinted pages means that users can print large quantities of output without hardware problems. While this Energy Star compliant black and white laser printer is certainly not the fastest device on the market, it scores as a well rounded machine at a price appropriate for the personal user or home office.
