This printer is quite possibly the most reliable I've ever had the pleasure of using. Coming from the 90s, as standard it has only a parallel and serial port for connection, but it's simple to add a JetDirect card for network printing. These are widely available and pretty cheap these days. Drivers are available for almost any system you can imagine so you'll have little problem getting it to work.
Aside from the network card, one other thing you might want to do is obtain some additional memory. This is also reasonably inexpensive and allows complex documents to be printed much quicker than with the standard 4MB.
Print quality is superbly crisp and pages come flying out (not literally, thankfully - imagine the chaos) after the initial warm-up of a few seconds. The main built-in auto-feeding paper tray is large enough on its own, holding a whole ream of A4, but an additional one is available which sits beneath the printer and holds an extra 500 sheets.
Toner cartridges aren't especially cheap but you'll need to do a lot of printing to get through one and less expensive remanufactured/compatible versions are available.
Hewlett-Packard has done it again! The LaserJet 4000 monochrome laser printer is remarkable. This powerful printer starts out with incredible 17 pages-per-minute print speed. It produces sharp, black text at 1200 dots-per-inch resolution. HP has also developed their own Postscript Level 2 emulation. Instead of spending extra money on a Postscript option, this emulation feature recognizes the Postscript language and gets working fast!
Another tremendous feature of this product is it comes with both a parallel and serial interface port, that makes for simple installation. This PC compatible printer stores 500 sheets of paper and has an optional 500-sheet feeder, a 75-sheet envelope feeder and an optional duplex unit for two-sided printing. This printer's paper tray even has a gauge outside the tray to tell you when paper is out before the computer does. It's even Macintosh compatible with the optional LocalTalk interface card. This simple-to-install printer is excellent for any business. With a duty cycle of up to 65,000 pages per month, this printer has no trouble supporting any type of report or presentation you can throw at it. It works with different types of media. Not only does it handle labels, envelopes and 8.5x14-inch paper with ease, this unit prints overhead transparencies flawlessly. HP also built this model with a straight-through paper path to ensure paper jams are kept at a minimum. The LaserJet 4000 ships with 4MB of standard memory and has a maximum capacity of 100MB.
