The HP LaserJet P1102 is a monochrome laser printer. The printer has a monthly duty cycle of 5,000 pages. The printer is suitable for users who print between 250 and 1,500 pages per month. The printer is ideal for the home or small office looking for a basic printer. At just 13.7 inches wide, 7.7 inches tall and 9.4 inches deep, the LaserJet P1102 is compact and can fit on your desk or in just about any other small space. The printer also weighs just 11.6 pounds, which means you can easily transport it to various locations as needed. The P1102 doesn’t have many expandable features, so if you anticipate potential growth in the future, you may want to upgrade to a printer with more options.
The setup process for the P1102 is quite simple. After plugging in the power cord and USB cable, you will be given the option to allow the driver to install automatically from the printer or you can follow the step-by-step instructions of the installation software. The printer’s only connectivity option is a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port.
The HP LaserJet P1102 produces very high quality documents, thanks to the printer’s 600 x 600 dpi resolution. The printer produces monochrome documents at 18 pages per minute, with the first page out in as little as 8.5 seconds. The printer has a 150-sheet paper capacity and comes with a paper tray. Additional paper trays cannot be added, so the printer’s maximum paper capacity is also 150 sheets.
The printer comes with an introductory HP LaserJet toner cartridge, a power cord, a USB cable, a Getting Started Guide, and installation software. Compatible black toner cartridge (CE285A-C) yields approximately 1,600 pages.
The HP P1102 has a 266 MHz processor and comes standard with 2 MB of installed memory, which is not expandable. If you need double-sided printing, you need to complete double-sided printing manually, since the driver does not support automatic double-sided printing. Although the printer lacks expandability, it performs basic functions well and is Energy Star compliant, which will help you save money over the life of the printer. Another version of the HP LaserJet P1102 offers a few more options. The HP LaserJet P1102w has wireless connectivity. Also, the HP LaserJet P1102w comes standard with 8 MB of memory, instead of 2 MB. The HP LaserJet P1102w also offers a ten sheet feeder.
