HP LaserJet P1102W

HP just released two new printers. Both printers are in the low end of the market with the 18ppm P1102W with a street price of $150 and the 26ppm P1606dn coming in at $230 or so. The printers are in my book throwaways but for the price they are offering some options that used to be pricey. The W in P1102W is for wireless. And the DN in P1606DN is for Duplexing and Network. for so much documentation that is printed, duplexing is a great way to save paper. Also HP has departed from the vanilla printer to a new sleeker looking black printer.

The P1606dn uses a HP CE278A toner cartridge, rated for 2,100 pages. the HP P1102W uses a CE285A rated for 1,600 pages. While upfront cost is low, the cost per page on these models is relatively high. These are designed for home or small business use. These make great little check printers if your volume is low, as they’re inexpensive and take up little space.

Both printers are now in R&D for MICR toner applications, and we hope to have both the P1102W / CE285A MICR toner cartridge and the P1606DN / CE278A MICR toner cartridge available sometime in May.
