By Simon Williams - 9th Feb 2021

Continuous ink printers have been around for some time now as a way of reducing the cost of printing. Now, HP has extended this technique to laser printers with the HP Neverstop 1001nw Monochrome Laser Printer.

Aimed at the home business and small business markets, this compact monochrome laser printer significantly reduces your cost per printed page. Not only will the 1001nw laser printer deliver 5,000-pages as standard, but it is also complete with a simple toner top-up method that removes all messiness. This particular model, with an enhanced range of connectivity options, is unique to the Australian and New Zealand markets.

HP Neverstop 1001nw Laser Printer Review Summary.

So, what is so different about the HP Neverstop 1001nw laser printer?

Everybody wants the lowest cost per printed page at the highest quality of printing performance. The HP Neverstop 1001nw printer achieves that with incredible innovation.

Instead of using a separate toner cartridge like any other HP laser printer, the HP Neverstop 1001nw uses a rechargeable toner hopper with all the traditional components associated with a laser cartridge integrated into the printer. Through this, you will immediately save money as all of those components last far longer than the toner in the cartridge.

In addition, while a toner cartridge needs to be replaced regularly, the HP Neverstop 1001nw has an inbuilt imaging drum. This comes with an extremely useful lifetime of up to 20,000 printer pages before it will need replacing. Combine that with the hopper that can hold enough toner to print up to 5,000 pages, the HP Neverstop 1001nw is built to, well, never stop!

The toner syringe is locked into the hopper and the toner is injected into the hopper. The process takes just 15 seconds to complete with no mess as shown by the video below.

Printing Performance.

Despite saving printing costs with this innovation, the HP Neverstop 1001nw does not fall short with printing performance.
