Taking the measure of the HP LaserJet P1006 printer is easy enough to do, and will quickly reveal a monochrome laser printer that comes to its user for an impressively low price. It will also deliver to its user good print speed and excellent print quality with the HP LaserJet P1006 toner, that is usually superior to competitor printers at its price point, which is around $125 new and in the box.
Given that this monochrome laser printer offers an array of features at such a good price, it’s hard to see how the typical small office and home office (SOHO) entrepreneur couldn’t help but be attracted by the P1006. For anybody operating on a tight, startup-type budget, it might be that this model could fill the bill so many businesses are looking to have filled (price-buster in a troubled economy).
Print speed as advertised by Hewlett-Packard for this printer comes in at about 17 pages per minute, which is actually exceptional for a printer going for somewhere between $80 and $125, that is also a laser printer model. Print speeds may be higher or lower depending upon the richness and character of the print job being sent to the printer, by the way.
It is also a very light printer, coming in at about 10 1/2 pounds and in a compact size to boot. This means it will fit nicely on any desktop or on the shelf next to a computer, where it can sit out of the way and humming along nicely.
