Perfect Printer for Home

I have used this model printer at work for the past 10 years. I have used it as a low volume printer, dedicated to printing Service Work Orders. The reason why I bought this printer was that it is a great, low volume Workhorse of a printer. I say low volume, because it prints at a speed of 7-9 pages per minute. I am fed up with paying $60-$100 for ink, that dries up in 4-6 months. The printers marketed for the home will eat you alive in liquid ink, especially if you don't print alot. Nowadays it makes no sense to buy a bunch of hardware for printing photos at home, when all the big Chain Stores offer print on demand services for pennies per picture. That brings me back to this printer. It uses black toner (no color) and the Toner is DRY. This means that if I don't use the printer for a year, it will still print a perfect copy when called on. Better yet, The toner cartridges are inexpensive on EBay, and yo get 3000+ copies per cartridge. The "Ink" printer would have gummed up or dried out, causing me to make a trip to the store.

Another Benefit: The Kids can go to the Coloring Book websites and print pages to color, and I don't have to worry about the ink issue! Hooray!

Practical Workhorse Printer

Good new plain old black and white printers cost at least $200. Getting a low-mileage HP 6P cost me about $50. It's not as fast as a new machine, but the output is crisp and I'm not in such a hurry that a few seconds per page matters. I bought one for my house and another for the office of the Funeral Consumers Alliance. It's networkable. You can get toner cartridges for it on Ebay for $35 or less that will print 5000 pages. The only problem I had with one of them was that the little bar under the toner cartridge came loose and I had to figure out where to put it back. Fortunately, that was the 2nd one, so I just had to look at the first one to see where it went. If you're looking for a hard-working well-behaved printer, this is a great deal for the money. Also, when the toner cartridge starts to leave white streaks, you can take it out and shake it to get another 50 pages.

Be advised buying used one. Page Count can be reset.

For a used printer, you cannot trust the Page Count to tell the real pages it has been printed. The page count of this HP LaserJet 6P can be easily reset by pressing and holding the Job-Cancel button for 20 seconds while turning on the power switch. This LaserJet 6P is a model of HP printer at year 1998, it has been more than 12 years now. (Today: 2010). In a very light usage, the page count should be about 100K pages even if it has been only used two toner cartridges (which each can last 4K page) per year. The printer has its life span on its rollers that should be replaced for every 100K page according to HP maintenance service supplement. My experience tells me that they should be still good for 150K pages. So, if you see a description that tells you it has only 10K page count or even lower, think again. Is there a low page count with toner-dust (which is a light gray dust) everywhere? (The best place to check: open the left side panel that for installing memory and check the inside surface, especially the inside corners, to see if the toner-dust appears). Unfortunately, you cannot check it online. Be advised, seller has no obligation to tell whether its page count has been reset. With the knowledge, judge it yourself riskily. And, by the way, it is really a very good printer. It is reliable and low cost to operate.

Die-hard laserjet printer 6p

I have had two used laserjets in use at home and in the office. I have never had a new one, always buy used and get them for around $25-50. They are a workhorse. They take a little time to get the message from the computer, but they will run and run and run. I would not buy a new laser black and white printer when I can get one at such a low cost used. And....the cartridges are really cheap on ebay also. If you want a good solid laser printer...this is the one that will get the job done. I would rate it excellent, but it does take longer to get the job in memory than my inkjet.

HP LasserJet 6MP printer

Even buying a used one with low page count is a better deal than the newer plastic non-repairable units. This one had 27K pages printed, that is like buying a older high quality car with 27,000 miles and knowing you can get at least 140,000 out of it with some care. Parts are still available and the repairs are fairly easy. Toughest problem? Paper jam in the fuser section. Happens only rarely. Toner refills are readily available. I use the cartridge until I see any degradation of the printing. I work for a mission group so every $ saved reduces the office overhead. We currently have six printers in use and always a working spare.

Peace, 3060541
