Unboxing the HP M1120 MFP

By far the best part of setting up the HP M1120 MFP is how easy it is to insert the cartridge. Holding the cartridge over the laser printer’s innards, it slipped from my grip, slid into the printer and literally snapped into place!

In fact, the longest part of the setup was installing the drivers (which work nicely on Windows 7 by the way). 5 minutes later, the Windows printer test page was out. Being a B/W laser printer, with less colors to process and worry about, does have it perks after all. At least the built-in scanner does color, which is all that matters in my eager-to-print-reports opinion.

At an average price of over $200, the HP M1120 MFP is one of the most affordable laser printers today. Locate a shop online.

    Hi!

    I can’t get this printer to work on Windows 7 64-bit (RC1, build 7100), can you tell me what version of Windows 7 you got it working with? also: what drivers/software did you use? I’ve had zero luck with the ones that came with the device and the ones from hp’s site.. the weird part is: the device seems to install ok (it shows up on devices & printers and scanning works) but all print jobs immediately end up to ‘error – printing’ on the print queue?!

      Unfortunately Enroth I’m using a 32-bit version of Windows 7, also RC1 build 7100. Just to be sure, you used the Vista drivers?

      • P. Enroth says:

        Yes, I tried the vista x64 drivers.. and just about every other driver/software package I found on HP’s site. I even tried some ‘HP universal print driver’ -thingy without any luck. I guess the next step is to upgrade the Windows 7 build to RTM or go back to Vista..

        Thanks for the reply!

      I got the printer working after installing the RTM (build 7600) version of Windows 7 x64 and installing the drivers from HP’s site (same drivers that didn’t work on the RC1 build 7100).
