HP LaserJet 1022 review: HP LaserJet 1022

The HP LaserJet 1022's speed falls in the middle of the pack for a basic laser printer. It creates text at 15.91ppm (pages per minute), some 3ppm faster than the popular Samsung ML-1740. Still, the HP 1022 lagged behind the cheaper Oki B4250 in both text and graphics.

This printer created dark, crisp text and decent grayscale graphics--just what a laser should do to create professional-looking documents with legible fine print, sharp lines, and smooth curves.
