LaserJet Blog addresses Vista Printing

With Microsoft Vista's launch, there has been an avalanche of compatibility issues reported in the press and blogosphere, ranging from minor annoyances to horror stories. As an index, a Google News search on "Vista Bugs" produces 815 hits this morning!

It's good to see vendors other than Microsoft stepping in to help their customers. One example is Vince Ferraro's post today on the HP (NYSE HPQ) LaserJet Blog.

HP's Universal Print Driver for Vista is now available and works with the following:

HP LaserJet/Color LaserJet

CM1015mfp, 1150 series, 1160 series, 1200 series , 1300 series, 1320 series, 2100 series, 2200 series, 2300 series, 24x0 series, P2015 series, 2500 series, 2550 series, 2605 series, P2700 series, 3000 series, 301x series, P3005 series, 3020 series, M3027 series, 3030 series, M3035 series, 3052AiO, 3050 AiO, 3055AiO, 3200 series, 3300 series, 3300mfp, 3390 AiO, 3392 AiO, 3700 series, 3800 series, 4000 series, CP4005 series, 4050 series, 4100 series, 4100mfp, 4200 series, 4240 series, 4250 series, 4300 series, 4345 series, M4345 series, 4350 series, 4500 series, 4550 series, 4600 series, 4610 series, 4650 series, 4700 series, 4730mfp series, 5000 series, M5025 series, M5035 series, 5100 series, 5200 series, 5500 series, 5550 series, 8000 series, 8150 series, 8150mfp, 9000 series, 9000mfp, 9040 series, 9050 series, 9050mfp, 9055mfp, 9065mfp, 9500 series, 9500mfp.

In the interest of full disclosure: even though I see my two HP LaserJet models -- the 1320 and 2550 -- on the list, before I can do a test, I'm still waiting for my Vista upgrade to arrive in the mail! (How quaint huh?)
