HP LaserJet 4000 Review
In 1997 HP launched their LaserJet 4000 series of printers. What followed was a long line of robust yet affordable laser printing devices that maintained one of the top market spots for more than ten years.
HP released their first personal PC compatible laser printer in 1984 and, at the time, the three thousand dollar device was the pinnacle of printing technology. This first LaserJet paved the way for three decades worth of HP LaserJet products, some of the most prominent being in the HP LaserJet 4000 series.
The initial units released in 1997 were very fast for the time period and clocked in with impressive print speeds of 17 pages per minute for letter sized paper and 16 pages per minute for A4. First page out time was also fairly decent at the time and ran at under 12 seconds for most standard projects.
The HP LaserJet 4000 eventually grew into HP’s 4100 and 4200 series’, but the initial 4000 models came in five different variations. The base model came equipped with a very adequate, single 500 sheet paper tray and no special media slot. It also included a very limited 4 MBs of memory that could be upgraded via a single 100 pin DIMM slot.
The HP LaserJet 4000 T was an interesting twist on the base model’s hardware. It came with all the same specifications, but replaced the single 500 sheet paper tray with two 250 sheet trays. The inclusion of two separate trays allowed businesses to load two distinct types of paper, such as letter and legal, at one time, which would cut down drastically on paper refills when swapping back and forth was required.
A network ready version of the unit called the HP LaserJet 4000 N was released along with the base models and included a built in HP Jetdirect print server card and a boost in memory up to 8 MBs. A slight variation on this design, the HP LaserJet 4000 TN, included the network card and also the two 250 sheet trays.
Though the HP LaserJet 4000 was at one time the best of the best, owning an older printer such as this does come with certain limitations. Luckily, toner cartridges are still readily available for the units via third party dealers, but customer support for these products no longer exists. Users do, however, have the option of consulting how to videos online or reading printer blogs when problems arise.
