Pros Fast printer, loud while printing so you know its working
Cons Single Sheet Feeder is &*^%$ crap crap crap
Summary Nice size and very fast printer for its cost. Toner is expensive $70 for 2500 sheets, about 3X the cost 5 years ago (3 cents a sheet vs 1 cent). Ths single sheet feeder is pure crap. The engineers must have NEVER tested it before releasing it. Took 15 attempts to get 5 sheets printed. Has 3 modes of loudness. Very loud while printing, Loud in idle mode, quiet in standby mode. As a reseller I have bought many HP laserjets over the years. This one flunks. If you buy a bigger model you will save in the long run due to the expensive toner that this one uses.
Pros Fast printing, small footprint, built-in double-sided printing
Cons Virtually unusable manual feed function for envelopes, checks, etc. No pull out tray or snap-on manual feeder tray. At first, I thought it was left out of box until I checked users manual.If they had this, it would be a perfect small office printer.
Pros Excellent text quality and automatic duplexing.
Cons Fused toner smears sometimes occur when horizontal and vertical lines intersect.
Summary Attracted by good reviews, the automatic duplexer, small footprint, and price after rebate, I purchased this printer mainly for high quality printing of sheet music. It was disappointingly inadequate for this purpose. While text printing is good, printing music does not produce acceptable results and therefore makes this model unusable for the professional results required by my clients. The problem occurs where the vertical barlines cross the horizontal staff lines: a permanently fused toner smear frequently occurs at these points of intersection in a downward direction, opposite to the travel direction of the paper. It happens regardless of media quality, file type, or printer driver settings. On a whim I also tested printing an accounting-style box consisting of many horizontal and vertical lines, with the same unfortunate results. After an hour on the phone with customer support, the decision was made to return the printer for a replacement. The second unit was worse than the first one! While on the phone this second time (this time an hour and a half) I offered to email CS both the source file (PDF) and a scan file of an actual print showing the smearing symptoms. I was told that they could not receive email, which I felt not only further hampered CS from resolving the problem, but which I also find somewhat odd for this day and age. I have returned the second unit and will not be requesting a third. It is a shame that an otherwise excellent printer has to be flawed by the inability to adequately handle such a simple task as printing crossing lines cleanly - hardly a demanding graphic task for a current day mid-level laser printer!
Pros nice printer; duplexes
Cons noisy in a quiet office
Summary yup, it's a good printer, but watch out if you're replacing an 1100 or 1200 - the 1320 has a relatively large amount of cooling fan noise. Even if you print a single page, the cooling fan _always_ runs for 3 minutes and sounds like a PC from ten years ago. Once the three minutes are up, it's silent. We have a lot of HP printers (old and new) and this is the only one that behaves this way - and HP have checked it and say it's normal. If you value quietness, audition this printer before you buy.
Pros Output was good when I could see it (see cons). Test and graphics look sharp, duplexer rocks. Speedy!
Cons I had a defective unit that only printed on the right side of the page. Tried it all.. shifting the toner cartridge, messing with rollers, different power sockets. While talking to HP customer care they mentioned that the manual feed was a problem w/ shee
