First of all kudos to flipkart for such speedy service. The printer was delivered the very next day after oredring.
As for the printer, well it performed brilliantly for the duration for which I was actually able to use it which was approximately 1 month. Yes, after a month the printer sat idle for about a month and a half. One fine day I needed a prinout for my flight ticket urgently, so I turned on this gadget and... whoa... it just would not turn on no matter what i did. Well I managed to get a print out from the airport itself and when I returned i called the HP service center. I must say they were very friendly people and were very proactive. A service personnel from an HP authorised service center reached at my house the very next day. He concluded that the power supply board was broke and was to be replaced. Well, that took another 2 weeks and the power supply board was finally replaced. Now the printer finally turned on and the guy even showed me a full black page being printed out by flapping the upper cover 5 times... I thought finally my printer had come to life. Now comes the twist......
The next day I connected the printer to my laptop and to my surprise it did not recognize the device.. said "driver installation failed". This was the same laptop in which I has installed the printer when I bought it. Thinking it to be a local system issue I tried to install it in a couple of other systems as well with the same results. Finally I was forced to call HP service again and as before they were helpful as always. A technician came yesterday and examined the whole issue and this is what he concluded.
1. The logic board is now broke, firmware corrupted
2. The power supply board is again broke, some problem with internal ground.
3. The test page should have been lines and not a solid black page (previous service guy didn't know that :P)
The verdict: Now both the logic and the poer supply boards have to be replaced.
PS: I used a stabilizer at all times and earth to neutral voltages were within limits
The word of caution: Please keep your bill handy and do register your product

I was planning to buy a laser printer with budget of around 6000 - 7000. I had options between HP 1020, HP 1108 and Canon. Since I wanted to go for HP so I bought this on a friend's advice. Its been two days and I have visited the shop from where I bought it, I went to HP service and there was an engineer visit to fix the issues.
There was some issue with power supply, When it goes into to auto off mode, it takes lot of time to recover and start printing.
I think I have made a wrong choice because when I compated.
- Power consumption in active mode is more (350 W) than HP 1020 (250 W)
- weight is more than 6 kg. HP 1020 is only 5 KG.
- Less prints as compare to HP 1020
Avoid this product as hell, review by a certified buyer
by ashish devliyal on 2013-06-18
Having used it for three months now i can vouch for that it is not a good product and you should avoid it like hell
1 print output - it took out about 900 pages all in eco mode. Actually it stopped at 800 saying there is no ink balance in it, i checked internet for a solution as i badly needed few more print outs. As suggested by many i took out the cartridge out, broke the chip which was on to one side (small 5mm by 5mm) on outside of cartridge and voila it gave me 100 more printouts.
2 Looks of the printer are good but that is where it ends, the power button is so sloppy you might feel most of the times that it is not getting pressed.
3 when you will take out prints after 30 continuous prints the paper gets so much heated you will feel that the paper is going to burn or something inside the printer is going to melt.
4 I purchased a new cartridge after two months for 3000 Rs from delhi, i think this is the cheapest price you can get for this cartridge. After few days of use (5 odd days) the printer has stopped working. i checked the cable , which is all right but the printer is just not getting switched on.
5 it ditched me at the most crucial point when i needed prints for my project, i had to go out and take 300 pages at 4 Rs each.
6 i think it was a great mistake buying this printer seeing all those reviews here.
7 Just to prove that i am a legitimate user please see the certified buyer logo here.
8 My advice is to Avoid this printer completely. But in case you do buy taking a gamble do write a feedback after using it min for three months, do not write a feedback in few days saying looks are awesome and working smooth and all this so that buyers can be aware of its true functioning.
Incredible and Affordable Laser Printer
by Mukta Agnihotri on 2012-02-20
One of my friends purchased HP Laserjet P1108 from flipkart a few days back. I often use it at her home. I find the printer absolutely incredible.
She called me to install the printer as it arrived. I installed it in about a minute because it does not need any CDs to run ti install the driver. HP's Smart plug-and-play installing makes installation child's play with this printer.
First copy came in just 6 to 7 seconds (OMG). This is just the fastest laser printer around. Print quality was as crisp as the old HP PCL2200 printer i used at my house (It had costed Rs 40,000 about 8 yrs back). Web Printing facility makes printing economical as u get prints of not the full web page, but of the selected area. HP P1108 automatically switches off once it remains idle for a few minutes. Printing yield withthe supplied toner comes to about 1500 to 1800 (I would definitely stretch it to 2000 pages). Toner is refillable, for about Rs. 250, so at that time printing cost per copy would come to just 30 - 40 paise (Incredible)
Printer is crafted beautifully with HP's by now famous two colour tone design. Printer is very-very compact and occupies just a little space on yr desk.
My only grudge is manual duplex printing facility. It should have been automated.
I would definitely recommend this printer to every small office and home user. GO FOR IT WITH A BLIND EYE. HP YOU ARE JUST BEST and u have done it again.
by Deepak Nagpal on 2012-02-06
i bought it of Rs 6000 (bargain)today 06-02-2012 , from delhi nehru place , be sure that the toner is original and full not import , not demo(half) . HP 1108 good print quality , speed.
HP printers are good . In gray market outer box of original 88A toner sell off Rs 300 .

Totally satisfied with the purchase.

I have this printer. Previously I had a Canon printer & it was very troubleshooting so I bought this one. It has great speed & quality.It's better than HP 1020.
Recommended for those who want best print with low cost.
by Mufaddal Shabbir on 2014-02-25

Very good Printer,Best in Series
by Rakesh on 2012-08-11
This is the best printer.
No Problem with its auto off mode.
Its Tonner is refillable -Very Easy Process.
I am using this printer and fully satisfied with this.
This is best but if you want any other brand then you can go with Samsung 1676, same printer like this. both have bundled with full tonner (1500 Pages) which is a strong point with these both model.
both model are available on Flipkart.
Great Site with Biggest Collection.

I owned a cannon inkjet colour printer, never did any colour printing, used it till it started showing loads of error messages.
The HP laser printer is amazing, fast, smooth, hassle free. Just remember to remove all the orange plastic tabs inside and outside the machine so that it works effectively on the first go.
Worth the price. Even the cartridges are affordable.
by SAKA GOPI on 2013-10-28
good look good printing quality easy installation and easy to-understand instructions and simply smart printer in printers i like it
A very good printer, comparable to HP1020
by Benjamin on 2014-10-18
Good Laser printer - almost as good as HP 1020. Printing speed probably slightly slower, but not really noticeable. Printing quality as good as HP 1020. At around Rs 5000 (it is often available at that price, with discount) it's a steal. If you are having a printer at your home, or if you run an office with 10-15 employee, this printer or HP 1020 are the ideal ones to have. There is not much long-term maintenance required.
I don't suggest that you buy those all-in-ones, unless you routinely need to scan. If you print a large amount of black-and-white document, this one is the ideal printer. Single-function, laser printers are so much better than multi-function deskjet ones.
Very good monochrome printer
by PRATIK RAJENDRA BUTTE PATIL on 2017-01-06
Very good monochrome printer .Few things you got to keep in mind during the use :
1) Keep it in dust free environment and use blower occasionaly to clean it.
2) The original toner yields around 2500 pages (Extra Dark and Great prints)
3) If going for toner refill , don't go for cheap toner powder .( Refill guys scavenge the ink and reuse them.So I refill them myself ,its not a rocket science,you can do it too , its easy and economic. Just be ready to get your hands black)
4) I have been using it since six months,with heavy usage , refilled the toner three times, still works like a charm
Value for money product , go for it.
Reasonably Priced HP, Excellent for day to day home-office use
by Aniket on 2014-05-08
full toner on buy of this printer, low cost spares, good print quality, light weight,
Cons: Plastic Body, Silver finish will tend to loose its colour once it becomes somewhat old.
by Sandip R. on 2016-10-15
I would like 2 thank Amazon for its quick delivery (before as scheduled) product is awesome and installation procedure is user friendly and printing quality is very crisp though i took 500 pages printout and found same quality printing from the very beginning any it's speed is very much satisfactory.
Very bad printing quality
by VIPUL H. on 2016-10-06
Very bad printing quality.. Catridge size is smaller compare to 12a, so ink powder exhausts too fast..in short, not worth to buy ....
Great Monochrome Printer!

It's a great printer, if you are looking for a monochrome printer. Easy to install by following the instructions which come with it and the installation CD. Prints really fast.
