Review: Increase Productivity With This Laserjet

HP's LaserJet 1020 combines speed, competitive pricing, and easy setup for individual office use in enterprise environments.

In busy office environments, there are always some users who are required to print documents all day long, and then there are others who only need to print from time to timeall of which can result in users wasting time waiting for paper output. Productivity suffersa lot.

The solution? The savvy solution provider will encourage the inclusion of a printer with every workstation sold. But what's a good printer to recommend? Hewlett-Packard's new LaserJet 1020

With the exception of high-volume printers, color network printers and other specialty units, the most economical type of printer to roll out in large numbers for individual use in an office environment is a monochrome laser printer. This type of printer is essentially maintenance-free, very reliable, small in size and provides inexpensive toner replacement.

When it comes to printers, Hewlett-Packard is one of the best-known brands in the business, which adds to its appeal with customers. The LaserJet 1020 is one of HP's smallest and most affordable monochrome laser printers. The printer is 14.6 inches wide by 14.2 inches deep by 8.2 inches high and weighs only 11 pounds. About the size of a toaster oven, it is an ideal printer for installation in cramped offices.

The LaserJet 1020 produces high-quality output at a low cost. The printer has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $179, but it sells for a lot less on the street. In fact, solution providers can take advantage of HP's instant rebate of $50 until Sept. 30. Of course, the unit also is available to solution providers through most major distributors.

HP's LaserJet 1020 is extremely easy to set up. That's mainly because the printer is so small and easy for one person to manage. Also, the consumables come preinstalled so the solution provider doesn't have to do much more than unpack the unit and remove some packing materials and pieces of tape from the outside of the printer. The printer's plug-and-play operation through the USB port makes driver installation a breeze.
