"It won't let you down."4.5 starson by Pablo Diego
Pros: Long lasting laser drum, long durability, quiet, realiable, easy set-up
Cons: Low Dots per Inch, low print speed, no duplex print
Summary: The printer was purchased in 1995 and still works today. The HP LaserJet 4L won't disappoint on reliability. I have printed many ebooks (around 300 pages) and the print drum lasts a long time.
I have used this printer with Windows 3.1, 95, 98, ME and XP. I did not have to install additional software due to the Operating System recognizing the printer. This printer has very easy set up which esentially is plug and play.
If you print a lot of documents for business or pleasure this printer will save you money on that. I find that this printer allows me to print a lot before changing the drum cartridge.
I have noticed that there is a low dots per inch with this laser printer and makes many pictures look grainy. If you are wanting to print pictures I would suggest either taking to a photo shop to order prints or using another printer. This printer is not the fastest on the market (about two to four pages a minute), nor does it have a feature for duplex print (double sided printing). You can manually double print with this printer but takes much longer.
In summary, this printer is good if you are printing a lot of documents. It is very reliable and plays well with various upgrades in Windows. This printer would be good for home, home office or business printing needs. However, if you are wanting duplex feature or wanting to print many graphics you should consider some other printer.
