Editors' review

When does a "printer" require no ink or paper? When it's printing to a file. PaperlessPrinter installs as a printer and outputs documents as PDF, HTML, JPEG, BMP, or RTF files, but not, unfortunately, as TIFF files. We were generally satisfied with the program's output quality and conversion speed, but when we tried converting to RTF and HTML, it added random spaces all over the document. We wouldn't recommend PaperlessPrinter for offices, but its freeware price makes it a decent choice for occasional or one-off use.

    "Every day I find a use for it"

    June 13, 2013   |   By pratinas

    Version: Paperless Printer 5.0.0.100

    Pros

    Flawless integration with Google Cloud print
    Easy setup of HP1000 printer on Linux or Ubuntu!
    Breaks the Windows - HP block & provides unlimited live to HP1000!
    Creates many ways to create PDF PS or other printables
    Can use any printable file as a starting point!

    Cons

    None. I usually find, at least minor, things to gripe about. However paperless printer continues to exceed my expectations

    Summary

    I love it. It has saved my favorite printer, HP1000. Windows and HP, since Win 7, have agreed to not provide a driver for this printer. So I switched the printer to my Linux Ubuntu system. I'd just decided to buy another printer for Win, when I discovered PP. Now, I share this wonderful old printer from Win 7, Win 8, and my cell phone. Saved my printer's life and saved me the cost of a new printer.

    "Install in Windows 7 compatability mode for Windows 8"

    March 15, 2013   |   By kimdvm

    Version: Paperless Printer 5.0.0.100

    Pros

    Works with google cloud printer and google drive.

    Cons

    No online troubleshooting information if you have problems with your installation.

    Summary

    I downloaded this product to use with Google Cloud Print. I haven't tried the other output options. I spent several hours trying to get it to install on my laptop running Windows 8 including installing, uninstalling, deleting registry keys, etc. I was able to get install it on my desktop machine which runs Windows 7 so I decided to try the compatability troubleshooter which worked. (Right click on installation file and select "troubleshoot compatability, choose to manual option and pick Windows 7, the installation program will start when you click "test". You may have to wait a long time for the installation to progress - a really long time)

    "Simply doesn't work"

    October 21, 2012   |   By RaesPaul

    Version: Paperless Printer 5.0.0.100

    Pros

    There are no positive points. This application simply doesn't work. The only thing that works well is getting rid of your money.

    Cons

    It doesn't work.

    You need to install it as administrator and any one who wants to use it from a non administrator log in get's it's computer blocked when he wants to add a 'google cloud printer', because the application wants to create the printer list in the administrators folder.

    Their Support simply doesn't reply to your email.

    No wonder you cannot try it for free. No one would buy this.

    Summary

    Don't waste your good money to this kind of rip off companies.
