HP LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer
A quick HP laser printer with network connectivity
- Decent print speeds, Bonjour compatibility, accurate text, can print on custom media sizes
- No automatic duplex, sparse configuration options, consumables are slightly expensive
The HP LaserJet P2035n prints quickly, but its consumable costs and network capabilities didn't impress us.
Price$ 649.00 (AUD)
HP's LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer is quick and it lets you print using custom media. However, the cost of its consumables and the lack of automatic duplexing make the asking price unreasonable.
The HP LaserJet P2035n is a little taller than entry-level monochrome laser printers, but it doesn't take up a significant amount of space. It comes with USB 2.0 and Ethernet ports for local and networked printing. A model without a network connection is available for $549.
Unlike higher-end printers, the HP LaserJet P2035n lacks any physical display, so its settings must be configured through the Web-based interface. The settings are sparse; it's possible to configure basic paper and network settings, but there are no security or e-mail notification capabilities. Thankfully, the inclusion of the Bonjour networking protocol makes it easy for Macs to use the LaserJet P2035n over a local network.
Though capable of network printing, this is no workhorse. The LaserJet P2035n monochrome laser printer offers up 16MB of memory, which can't be upgraded. An input tray holds 250 sheets, while you'll be able to fit 50 sheets of custom-sized media through a multi-purpose tray on top. HP claims the printer can handle a maximum of 25,000 sheets per month but, with a recommended monthly duty cycle of 500 to 2000 sheets, it's clear this printer is primarily designed for light document printing.
Consumable replacement is easy; simply open the front panel and slide out the toner. Each 2300-page toner costs $140.93, or 6.1c per A4 page. This is expensive considering that even the dirt-cheap Fuji Xerox Phaser 3125/N only costs 4.7c per page.

The LaserJet P2035n exceeded HP's claimed print speed of 30 pages per minute in our real-world tests. It is also fairly quick when waking from idle mode, with the first page printed in an average of 8.5 seconds.
Though the printer's maximum resolution is only 600x600dpi, the quality is acceptable for text documents at text sizes as small as 7 point. Black and white graphics aren't too shabby either, though the low resolution means a lot of detail is lost on larger images.
If you need a basic document printer to share between three or four computers, the HP LaserJet P2035n will suffice. However, you can find get consumable costs and network capabilities from cheaper alternatives.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
