HP HL-2170W offers slightly better text quality and paper handling, with a 250-sheet paper tray and 1-page manual feed slot. On the other hand, the Brother printer is also somewhat larger and heavier, so the choice between the two largely comes down to whether you prefer a higher paper capacity or a smaller printer.

As you might expect from the small size, the printer offers only limited paper capacity, at 150 sheets for the main tray. That should be enough for most personal use, but its a little low if you're expecting to take advantage of the WiFi connection to share the hp laserjet p1102w service manual between two or more people. If you HP LASERJET P1102W a combined total of more than about 30 pages per day, you'll be refilling the tray more than once a week, which could become an annoying chore.


I installed the printer using a USB connection on a system running Windows Vista. According to HP, it also comes with drivers for Vista 64-bit; both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, XP, Server 2003, and Server 2008; and Mac OS X version 10.4 through 10.6. In addition, HP says you can download drivers for "nearly any Linux distribution available today" from HP's Web site.

If you don't expect to print enough for the cost per page to matter, the HP LASERJET P1102w balance of small size, fast speed, and reasonably high-quality output makes it a more than reasonable choice as either a personal printer in any size office or as a shared printer in an office with just two or three people. But be sure to also take a look at the Brother HL-2170W.

Once installed, the HP LASERJET P1102W DRIVER works swimmingly. The engine is rated at 19 pages per minute (ppm), which even for a personal printer is modest by today's standards. However, the actual throughput is a match for other printers with faster rated speeds.

Helping make up for the low paper capacity is the convenience of a 10-sheet multipurpose tray, which lets you print on different types of paper—checks or letterhead for example—without having to swap out the paper in the main tray or manually feed each page using a single-sheet manual feed.
