HP LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer
A quick HP laser printer with network connectivity
- Decent print speeds, Bonjour compatibility, accurate text, can print on custom media sizes
- No automatic duplex, sparse configuration options, consumables are slightly expensive
The HP LaserJet P2035n prints quickly, but its consumable costs and network capabilities didn't impress us.
Price$ 649.00 (AUD)
HP's LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer is quick and it lets you print using custom media. However, the cost of its consumables and the lack of automatic duplexing make the asking price unreasonable.
The HP LaserJet P2035n is a little taller than entry-level monochrome laser printers, but it doesn't take up a significant amount of space. It comes with USB 2.0 and Ethernet ports for local and networked printing. A model without a network connection is available for $549.
Unlike higher-end printers, the HP LaserJet P2035n lacks any physical display, so its settings must be configured through the Web-based interface. The settings are sparse; it's possible to configure basic paper and network settings, but there are no security or e-mail notification capabilities. Thankfully, the inclusion of the Bonjour networking protocol makes it easy for Macs to use the LaserJet P2035n over a local network.
Though capable of network printing, this is no workhorse. The LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer offers up 16MB of memory, which can't be upgraded. An input tray holds 250 sheets, while you'll be able to fit 50 sheets of custom-sized media through a multi-purpose tray on top. HP claims the printer can handle a maximum of 25,000 sheets per month but, with a recommended monthly duty cycle of 500 to 2000 sheets, it's clear this printer is primarily designed for light document printing.
Consumable replacement is easy; simply open the front panel and slide out the toner. Each 2300-page toner costs $140.93, or 6.1c per A4 page. This is expensive considering that even the dirt-cheap Fuji Xerox Phaser 3125/N only costs 4.7c per page.

|Canon Laser Shot LBP3100B||$149||Laser||18.8|
The LaserJet P2035n exceeded HP's claimed print speed of 30 pages per minute in our real-world tests. It is also fairly quick when waking from idle mode, with the first page printed in an average of 8.5 seconds.
Though the printer's maximum resolution is only 600x600dpi, the quality is acceptable for text documents at text sizes as small as 7 point. Black and white graphics aren't too shabby either, though the low resolution means a lot of detail is lost on larger images.
If you need a basic document printer to share between three or four computers, the HP LaserJet P2035n will suffice. However, you can find get consumable costs and network capabilities from cheaper alternatives.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
