HP LaserJet P2035n review

£165.83 inc VAT

Manufacturer: HP

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The HP 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 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 a little less.

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 email 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 HP 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. Page costs are relatively expensive.


The HP 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.

Although the HP LaserJet P2035n'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.

    HP targets the entry-level laser market with the impressively speedy, if otherwise unremarkable, LaserJet P1505 monochrome printer.
