Printer manufacturer HP's P3015d LaserJet printer is a speedy but expensive monochrome printer, according to an IT magazine.

The LaserJet Enterprise P3015d performed quick prints but was costly to run, according to Susan Silvius, writing for Macworld magazine.

Price issues were put down to the product's inefficient toner use.

HP has said that the printer runs at 42 pages per minute, with the magazine's tests on it finding that it printed a ten-page document in 23 seconds.

However, the printer was also found to suffer from low connectivity options, with no Ethernet port provided.

As with many monochrome printers, the printer also lacked sharp graphic quality when printing anything other than text, with grainy pictures and visible banding.

HP has said that printer runs efficiently as a text-printing product, optimising paper usage with automatic two-sided printing and a 540 MHz processor to guarantee fast print times.
