Overall, a nice, pretty, cheap ($400+ US) laser. Comes in a variety of bundlings; i.e. 1100se, 1100xi.) This printer can be converted to an 1100A with a scanner attachment (list US$150). For the status of the scanner see the 1100A. This printer is slow with Ghostscript versions prior to 5.50.

For basic printing functionality use the HPIJS driver . For advanced functionality such as printer status and maintenance features, use the HPLIP driver (which includes HPIJS).

Unfortunately, this printer has a little hardware problem: The paper separation pad hardens with the time and the printer pulls in several sheets of paper at once. HP is aware of this and offered a kit to fix this without needing to disassemble the printer for free. Unfortunately, HP discontinued this kit. You can perhaps get these kits from other suppliers online for around 10 USD.

The HP LaserJet 1100 has the same engine as the Canon LBP-320, LBP-320 PRO, and LBP-350, and these have the same hardware problem. It is quite feasible to solve this by gluing a 0.5mm rubber strip over the hardened grey separation pad.

Consumables/Refills: Cartridge containing toner and drum in one unit
