"Printer Quality is not reliable"1.0 starson by TLWoodall
Pros: Prints fast
Cons: Ghosting, Smugs and needs repair to often.
Summary: I have printed under a thousand pages when the ghosting, smears and black speckles first occurred. For 8 years, I've used a HP 5M (and still do) without any problems, so I purchased a HP LJ1300 for home. (Never HP again). Seems they lost their edge, which they use to build a quality printer that not only printed fast but also was reliable.
Researching the problem it's the fuser in the printer or it the HP cartridges (basically poor manufacturing of all products). And many other people are experiencing the same problem.
