Priced at around $500, the HP LaserJet 1022 printer is a budget friendly device that can handle the printing needs of a small office. The design is primarily focused on speed and low printing cost using HP 12A ink. Let us check if this is the right printer for you.

Like any office printer, speed is necessary. The HP can print 19 pages in a minute for black and white text, which is slightly faster than most laser printers in its class. The quality for the text is excellent. We even tried printing fonts that are as little as 4 Pt. And all of letters were clear enough to be read. In fact, it even outperformed some of its more expensive counterparts when it boiled down to speed and quality.

In addition, an office printer must have enough printing capacity. The HP LaserJet has a monthly cycle of 8000 pages, which is just enough to cater to the needs of an office with 3-5 people. It is powered by a 266-Megahertz processor and 8 Megabyte memory, which makes this powerhouse device that is able to handle anything from text to graphics without choking.

The HP LaserJet 1022 printer has a maximum resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, which makes it precise enough to print graphics. It can also accept any media from 3 x 5 to 8.5 x 14 inches. It has a paper tray that can handle 260 sheets of paper, which is around 20% larger compared to its counterparts.

Unfortunately, the HP does not have any built-in Ethernet port. The only way to share this printer with other computers in a network is by hooking it up to the server or domain computer. Even though it does not have any networking capability, it is still a good laser printer because of its speed and quality.

The LaserJet uses a High-speed USB to connect to a computer. Since it was released as entry-level laser printer after 2002, it no longer carries the old parallel port. This technology makes sure that the connection is fast enough to transmit and receive data.

It consumes around 300 Watts when it is operational, which makes it a little more power efficient compared to other laser printers in its class. The average laser printer uses up around 350 Watts. The HP also has a standby feature that only uses up 2 watts of electricity. This is one of the lower standby power usages in its class.

The HP LaserJet 1022 printer with LaserJet 1022 toners is a very attractive device for any small office. It has the speed, quality, and low printing cost that most of us will need. This small laser printer might be small, but it provides the most affordable printing cost we have ever seen in any laser printer that cost less than a thousand dollars.

The third most important aspect that one should definitely consider when buying a laser printer is cost. Average 2000-page yield HP 12A toner cartridges cost around $25, which makes each print cost around 1.25 cents. This is one of the lowest printing costs in its class. In fact, it is even cheaper than any sub $1000 laser printers out in the market.

If you really want to get the most of your money, I would recommend getting the high yield HP 1022 replacement toner. The high capacity remanufactured toners can print 3000 pages and cost $37, which makes print costs 1.23 cents per page.
