— Advanced in its day, this group set many of the current technological standards —
The IIP, IIP Plus, and IIIP: still useful after all these years!

The HP LaserJet IIP, IIP Plus, and IIIP were way ahead of the pack between 1989 and 1991 when they came out, and many of the advanced technologies that made these printers special then have become standard features since that time. When they were introduced they were smaller, faster, and lighter than anything else on the market. They were the first to make use of a charged roller system instead of corona wires. This was the technology that eliminated the need for ozone filters, because the new system did not produce harmful ozone gases. You can still benefit from owning one of these printers, like new but for a fraction of the original cost.

The LaserJet IIP has PCL 4, both serial and parallel I/O, and a 10 MHz 6800 CPU. The LaserJet IIP Plus has has PCL 4, a parallel I/O only, and went to a 16 MHz CPU. The LaserJet IIIP moved on to PCL Level 5, with serial and parallel I/O, and the 16 MHz CPU.
