HP LaserJet 1022

12 Monochrome Laser Printers
By

The HP LaserJet 1022 is a low-cost, barebones, no-frills monochrome laser printer. It retails for around $170, in return for which you get middling 18 ppm output speed, 1200x1200 output resolution, a modest 8,000 page monthly duty cycle and basic paper handling capabilities. You get up to 260 sheets of fixed input capacity and up to 150 sheets of fixed output capacity (no optional paper trays here).

The HP 1022 is compact and boxy, but does the job surprisingly well.

With dimensions of 14.56" x 9.65" x 9.5" (37.0cm x 24.5cm x 24.1cm) and a weight of 12.1 lbs (5.5 kg), the HP 1022 is pretty compact and light, well suited for small and home office or personal use. Basic connectivity is either USB 2.0 or parallel port, but HP also sells JetDirect (Ethernet) and wireless print server add-ons, and a Bluetooth wireless adapter that works with this printer.

Consumables for the HP 1022 cost $70 for a black cartridge rated at 2,000 pages. Refilled or aftermarket cartridges are widely available, and usually go for $45-$55. Although the unit has no built-in duplexing capability, HP includes support for double-sided printing in its driver configuration (when selected, it shows users how to turn over and rotate the paper, and reminds them to do so when the first sides have finished printing). Print quality is pretty good, especially for text, and graphics are decent though details can sometimes tend to be a little bit blotchy.
