HP LaserJet 1160 Review
Modest and basic, the 2004 HP LaserJet 1160 has increased memory to handle larger files and sharing. Delivering an effective quality of 1,200 dpi resolutions at speeds up to 20 pages per minute, and having parallel and USB ports, this printer won’t take up a lot of space on your desk, and is ideal on a production line
Coming out of the box at under 24 pounds, the LaserJet 1160 has a total footprint of 17” x 14”. The paper trays are flushed with the printer housing, keeping space at a minimum while allowing for printing up to legal sizes. The low 10 inch height allows for the 1160 to function underneath any low-hanging shelves on a desk or workbench.
The 250-sheet cassette will support paperweights from 16# paper to 43# cardstock and sizes ranging from 3” x 5” up to 8.5” x 14” legal size.
The 1160 has a single-sheet multi-purpose slot for labels, single-feed envelopes, cardstock, and transparencies. In less than 8 seconds, the 1160 can produce up to 20 pages per minute. Employing HP’s FastRes 1200, the LaserJet’s 600 x 600 dpi resolution is enhanced to produce prints of 1,200 dpi quality, without appreciable loss in speed. This keeps printed text relatively sharp and does a decent job with photographs. Like all LaserJets, the 1160 comes with a Toner Save feature to conserve on toner. The control panel consists of Go and Cancel buttons and four LEDs. The icons next to the LEDs help provide most of the information a user needs to troubleshoot the LaserJet without having to decipher a lot of blinking light codes.
HP got their act together when they built the 1160 by bumping the non-expandable memory to 16MB. 16MB can not only handle any graphic or PDF job thrown at the printer, but allow the LaserJet 1160 to be a useful as a shared network printer for multiple computers.
The LaserJet 1160 has no upgradability or options. Nada. Zilch. This is good news if you’re not the type of person that’s not mechanically inclined and doesn’t like to add options later. And with 16MB of RAM, the 1160 won’t need to be upgraded for a long time.
The HP’s contains a PCL5e emulator and 26 PCL fonts.
A 20 pages per minute, this laser printer is a little on the slow side of printing speeds compared to competitor laser and inkjet printers.
This is a noisy printer. 60 decibels is the level of talking in a room. Now imagine that sound level in your office in the form of a printer. While practically silent in Standby Mode, the LaserJet 1150 produces 62dB of noise during power-up, and printing. If you’re not going to attach it to a printer server adapter, you might want to op for a long USB or parallel cable to increase the printers distance from your work area.
