Hunter Herndon Death – Gone too soon, we are saddened to announce the death of our beloved one. He died on December 17, 2019.
The HP Laserjet 1300 is the replacement model for the incredibly successful Laserjet 1200 and the pedigree is obvious as the HP Laserjet 1300 looks almost identical to its predecessor. However, all the good reproduction has not been passed, since the HP Laserjet 1300 prints the images in grayscale poorly; The HP 1300 Laserjet was clearly not designed to print graphics.
Almost identical to its predecessor, the Laserjet 1200
The HP Laserjet 1300 is the fastest laser printer in its class, almost getting the manufacturers claim of 20 pages per minute very respectable and the first page to be printed in approximately 9 seconds. If you are printing graphics with the HP Laserjet 1300, you must double the output times.

HP Laserjet 1300 well presented
The HP Laserjet 1300 has some new features of the previous model and these include a very practical EconoMode, which uses less tone, when you want a hard copy of those long drafts while maintaining some degree of text readability. Similarly, the HP Laserjet 1300 default is a print resolution of 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi), but this can easily be increased to 1200 × 1200 dpi for that high quality job.

The HP Laserjet 1300? Bad print quality?
With what the HP Laserjet 1300 has to compete more in our office is our beloved HP Laserjet 1200, we loved this printer. Despite the blows he has suffered over the years, staple foods, coffee and even survival were torn off the desk when I set foot on the power cord, which has worked tirelessly.
I think the problem with the Laserjet 1300 is that HP has sacrificed quality for speed and when comparing sheet by sheet together with the competitors of the Laserjet 1300, this difference is marked, particularly when printing graphics.
