Priced at only $229, the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn is not only affordable and fast, but its small size lends itself to a convenience rarely seen with printers. Weighing only 15 pounds and measuring 15 inches wide, 9.5 inches tall, and 11 inches deep without including the 5.5-inch paper tray, this monochrome laser printer fits comfortably on any desk alongside a PC and is easy to transport between offices when such a need arises. In addition, it handily connects to a computer with a USB cable. Best of all, the HP P1606dn toner lasts for approximately 2,100 pages and retails for about $28.49 each. If you do the math, the cost of replacing your toner works out to just over a penny a page! Continue reading for our opinions on why this is an awesome printer...
Not Only Is It Small, It Won’t Run Up Your Electric Bill
The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn is also remarkably energy efficient. When left idle, it powers down into an energy-saving mode and wakes up immediately upon being given print commands. Though it is one of the quieter laser printers on the market, it also features a quiet mode that silences the machine completely, although this also slows down the print speed.
An Easy-To-Use Interface
In addition, the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn’s interface design is refreshingly simple. Instead of a status display, three small LED indicators notify you if the printer is ready, if there's a problem such as a paper jam, or if the toner is running low. Along with this, there are two buttons -- one marked “Go” which enables the beginning and continuation of print jobs, and another for aborting jobs if need be. The output tray holds 125 sheets, the input tray has the capacity for 250 sheets, and above it, there is a priority tray that can hold ten sheets or envelopes.
