We bought our HP Laserjet 6l nearly seven years ago, now. At a time when most of our computer-literate friends were buying colour desk-jet printers, we weighed up the kinds of things we wanted to print, and the cost, and decided that a black-only laser printer would actually meet our needs better. We bought it shortly before Christmas, so that we could print our annual family newsletter on it. At that time, photocopying was quite pricey: about 10p per A4 side. This was perhaps reduced a little for double-sided bulk copying, but still it would have cost us over £15 simply to photocopy our newsletter 100 times. Taking ... Read the complete review

Over the years i've had many experiances with various brands of printers at home and at work and they come in all shapes and sizes. Out of all them the printers I would recommend are the ones that are simple shapes, such as a square. The reason is simple, you get less jams and less faults. The worst model I have come across is the HP LaserJet 6L. After approximatly 300 printout the sheet feeder takes up to 10 pages in one go and this causes jams. It should take 1 page. Sometimes it doesn't even take the paper and your PC tells you there is a jam. You have to open the printer and then close it again, and then get the paper out and put it ... Read the complete review

I purchased an HP 6L printer. At 6 pages per minute it isn't the fastest laser printer out there. But the drivers aren't that great. Need to reinstall them from time to time cause the printer decides it doesn't want to print anymore. It doesn't have an on/off switch, the printer turns on/off by itself, which is pretty cool at first, but then I never understood when it decides to turn off. Sometimes the LED stays on all night. It doesn't make any noise in standby mode which is good. It also has another problem which seems common to all types of HP printers (inkjet or laser), it's not so good with paper feeding. Sometimes several pages go through at Read the complete review

My brother bought this piece of equipment about 2 years go. He loves HP and thinks they are the best. But i am going to tell you WHY NOT TO BUY THIS CRAP PRINTER.. Its totaly biased, because i hate it and think HP charge too much for their goods. What i hate about it: 1) Paper loading mech. Its so bad, it sometime takes two paper in a row, or none at all. You see when like me you print a 130 page thesis, you don't want to spend ages next to the machine seeing it take each sheet one by one, just incase it misses a page. 2) When it misses a page, it does not carry on from where it left. Instead it starts the print job from the begionning ... Read the complete review

Firstly I must note that the HP Laserjet 6L has been discontinued by HP, the current replacement at time of writing is the HP Laserjet 1100. It used to be HP's entry level laser printer. HP said that it could print 6 pages per minute, but in reality it's very slow for a laser printer, although the quality is just as good as more expensive laser printers at 600 DPI. It only comes with 1MB of memory, this means if it won't print complex graphics, however this is expandable to 9MB. WIth it's poor design, paper jams can be difficult to remove as you can't get into some of the inner parts of the printer without stripping it. ... Read the complete review
