HP LaserJet 5L Printer Review

Expert review of the HP LaserJet 5L printer

Our Verdict:

The HP LaserJet 5L mono laser printer is one of the earliest models from the LaserJet 5 series. It is sturdily built and conveniently designed, measuring only 11.8x17.4x16 inches. The HP 5L laser printer is suitable for high-volume print work, capable of handling up to 35,000 impressions per month. The HP 5L LaserJet is a dedicated monochrome laser printer, but its low standard paper capacity and slow print speeds are major issues that may slow down productivity in a busy office.


The HP LaserJet 5L is just the right size for a single-function laser printer, though there are smaller units offering the same functions that may appeal to other users. It comes with 2 standard paper trays with a combined capacity of 350 sheets. Additional paper trays may be purchased to address the low input capacity issue, increasing the total paper capacity to 850 sheets. The LaserJet 5L printer is equipped with a 4 MB internal memory, which can be upgraded to a maximum of 66 MB.


High resolution printing is guaranteed with the HP LaserJet 5L black and white laser printer as it features a powerful 600 dpi print engine. Texts are well defined and sharp, though many users feel that tones can be darker. Since it is built for heavy duty use, the Hewlett Packard LaserJet 5L printer is a good addition to offices and its sleek design is perfect even for small offices. Although high capacirty cartridges aren't available for this model, the printer can use a compatible black HP LaserJet 5L toner cartridge for cheaper running costs.


In addition to occasional light tones, there is also visible banding when printing graphics with the HP LaserJet 5L laser printer. Its sluggish print rate is also an annoyance, averaging only 4 ppm.
