I will make this short and sweet. I love the HP 1012.
There are painful issues when buying low cost lasers beyond the cost of replacement toner.
The laser drum has a limited life span and will eventually fail, possibly do to the corrosive effects of heat and humidly over a period of six months to a year. In many lasers this is a separate assembly which has a rated life span of about 20,000 pages. That is great if you print all those pages within that time period but some users are finding that the drum fails regardless of per page use because of the above. They may print two thousand pages in one year and still have to purchase a new drum when the printing begins to fail. The pain is that a drum costs almost as much as a discounted laser printer does in the first place. This is a rip because these drums are not much more substantial than an empty coke can. Truly this is a case of "selling you the razor and hoping to make money when you need the blades". Look at all the Amazon reviews of other lasers where people have had them for more than six months. Do you begin to feel their pain?
The HP apparently does not have a separate drum assembly. When you replace the cartridge you are replacing this also. That is probably why their cartridges appear to cost slightly more per copy than the other low cost lasers that I looked at. HP states their cartridge is guaranteed to be good for at least six months after it has been opened and that an unopened cartridge has a shelf life of two years in the plastic package.
What HP doesn't want you or I to know is that they are rather conservative with the supply of toner and that the toner is designed to wear out long before the cartridge and drum does in the home environment of limited usage.

I ordered the printer on Christmas Eve 2004 from Amazon, and it arrived about 3 weeks later on a Friday. I reckon the holidays must have delayed the shipment. I have seen it selling for a little less elsewhere, but taking into consideration that shipping was free and I didn't have to pay sales tax in California, it was the best deal.

I have a Powerbook running Mac OS-X 10.3.8 and I had the printer working in about 15-20 minutes after opening the box. There is no USB cable or a manual. A PDF manual is supplied in the CD-ROM along with the print driver. Just make sure you purchase a USB cable. I got an inexpensive Belkin USB cable from Amazon.

The supplied HP print driver is version 1.1.3 and it prints the pages in reverse order by default. The printer puts out the pages face down, so you have to rearrange the pages in the proper order every time. I am a writer and I print out over 100 pages at a time, so that can be a big problem. I searched for a newer version of the print driver on the HP website, but they only had version 1.1.3 for download. I emailed Tech Support at HP on a Saturday and received a reply from them on Monday. They informed me that Version 4 of the print driver can be downloaded via an FTP address, which they emailed me. I don't know why they didn't make the latest print driver available on the HP website in the first place. I downloaded Version 4 and everything has been smooth sailing ever since. I have to commend HP Tech Support for their timely response and effectively solving my problem.

Regarding the speed of the HP 1012.... It puts out the first page in less than 10 seconds. It is very quiet, because it doesn't have a fan. I have heard that the printer slows down after 50-plus pages while doing my research prior to purchasing it.

I bought this laser printer when I realized I will need to print out dozens of pdf research papers. Laser printers can churn out black and white prints much faster than ink jets. As a low end laser printer, I was surprised at how good the quality of its print outs are. The printer is quiet and compact. Toner cartridges cost around 70 bucks for 2000 pages, which is a bit more expensive versus that from other brand names. But I am very satisfied with my purchase. A great laser printer to have at home for printing out forms, documents and homeworks! I'd give it a 4.5 if i could, but its more 4 than 5 because it prints a bit slow and is a bit on the expensive side versus other budget printers.

P.S. I also own a Konica Minolta 1350W, I find the LaserJet 1012 a much better product.

I purchased this printer a year ago for use in my home office, and for my fiance to print drafts of her masters paper on. I had an inkjet printer that worked fine, but the cost per page was quite high, so I went shopping for a laser printer.

I chose the 1012 based in part on positive reader reviews on I ordered it from Amazon (free/slow shipping) and it arrived just a couple days later -- lovely! It's been trouble free ever since. It has only 8 MB of memory, but this has proven to be more than adequate for printing full page bitmaps, so it does not turn out to be a handicap.

The toner cartridge is the one achilles heel of this device. It is designed for approx 3000 page service duty, about half a typical HP toner cartridge yield, but costs about as much as others, about $70 retail. (Your Milage May Vary: I've gotten at least 3500 pages so far, but I have a spare tone cartridge ready to swap in). I suspect this is how HP hopes to make money on such an inexpensive laser printer. But, if you do the math, the cost per page for your first 3000 sheets, including paper and the printer, is under seven cents per page, compared to 25 cents or more for inkjet prints. After this, the ongoing cost is only $0.025/page -- yes, two and a half cents. This assumes you get only what HP predicts, and not significantly better, as I have experienced. If your budget allows a more expensive printer which gets more pages per cart, you may want to, but for those of us on a budget, this is still a great deal, with the HP reliability we have come to expect.

As noted by other reviewers, heavy duty cycle causes the printer to slow down. I don't consider this a big flaw -- it has no trouble turning out sixty page drafts on demand, at its full rated speed.
