HP’s web-enabled monochrome LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dn enables you to streamline your workflows and enhances productivity in the office. You get black and white print, copy and fax functionality and color scanning with this model.

Prints from this MFP are sharp and bold, and the print jobs run at speeds of up to 35 ppm, at 1200 dpi resolution.

The 500-sheet ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) has dual head scanning technology so you can copy and scan two-sided documents in a single pass. You can also scan directly to e-mail or a network folder. With this, your scanning and copying jobs just got easier and quicker. You can even directly print from or scan to a USB flash drive. The standard Ethernet connectivity lets you share the MFP on your office network.

The control panel has a 3.5” color touch screen display and buttons for print, copy, scan and fax functions. It’s easy to use. Installation is simple with HP Smart Install. Mobile printing is possible using HP ePrint or Apple Airtime. The Auto On/Auto Off technology that’s incorporated in this MFP ensures energy savings.

HP Officejet 4620, 6600, 6700 e-All-in-Ones, Officejet 6100 ePrinter – cost effective office solutions for SMBs

By Databazaar Blog

HP_Officejet_Printers

With the launch of the HP Officejet 4620, 6600, 6700 Premium e-All-in-Ones and the Officejet 6100 ePrinter, HP has come up with a new set of cost effective solutions for small and medium sized businesses. The e-All-in-One models are capable of multi-tasking and print, copy, scan and fax functions. USB 2.0 connectivity is standard across all the models. They have built-in wireless capability that gives you the flexibility to print from virtually anywhere as well as print from mobile devices with HP ePrint and Apple Airtime. Besides being economically priced, they incorporate energy saving modes as well.

The higher end Officejet 6700 Premium e-All-in-One has a 2.65” color LCD touch screen from where you can access apps on the web as well as directly manage print, copy and scan functions. The 35-sheet ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), 250-sheet input paper tray and draft print speeds of up to 34 ppm (Black) and 31 ppm (Color) mean higher productivity and fewer stops to replace paper. You get to save on paper by using the standard automatic duplex printing feature. The scanner can be operated by using the flatbed or the ADF. Scanning using the ADF is quick and easy when you have multiple pages to scan. This model includes a front USB port as well as Ethernet in addition to wireless and USB 2.0 connectivity.

The Officejet 6600 e-All-in-One has pretty much all the features of the 6700 model, except that its draft print speeds are slower at about 32 ppm (Black) and 30 ppm (Color), and it doesn’t feature duplex printing, a front USB port or Ethernet connectivity.

The lower end Officejet 4620 e-All-in-One has a 35-sheet ADF and an 80-sheet input paper tray. With draft print speeds of up to 23 ppm (Black) and 22 ppm (Color) and a print resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi, it is good for sharp, clear everyday prints. You can print right to the edge of the paper to create borderless prints up to 8.5” x 11” in size. The print, copy and scan functions can be operated directly from the 2” monochrome LCD. It doesn’t feature web connectivity, duplex printing, a front USB port or Ethernet connectivity.

The Officejet 6100 ePrinter has a 250-sheet input paper capacity and fast draft print speeds of up to 34 ppm (Black) and 31 ppm (Color). It supports a wide range of media and includes USB 2.0, Ethernet as well as Wireless connectivity. Duplex printing capability is not available on the ePrinter. You can print to it from mobile devices by using HP ePrint and Apple Airtime.

HP Photosmart eStation All-In-One – the Color Inkjet AIO with a detachable color touch screen

By Databazaar Blog

HP_Photosmart_eStation

The 7” detachable control panel that doubles as a tablet is the most outstanding feature of the HP Photosmart eStation All-In-One. Besides being able to easily operate the print, copy, scan and fax functions from the detachable control panel, you can also use it as a wireless device to browse the web, access your emails, read the news, and download photos, documents and more. The control panel, known as the Zeen, can also be used to read eBooks.

The Photosmart eStation AIO is essentially for home offices. It has a 125-sheet input tray and a 20-sheet photo tray. You can print great borderless color photos with resolutions up to 9600 x 2400 dpi (on HP photo papers and 1200 input dpi). Duplex printing is a standard feature. The flatbed scanner can handle documents that are as large as 8.5” x 11.7”. Using the control panel you can scan directly to a memory card. Additional scan features are available when you use HP’s scan app from a connected PC.

The eFax® function allows you to send and receive faxes via the Internet rather than using a phone line. When you send a fax, it is sent over the Internet to the eFax® server from where it is delivered to the recipient’s fax machine. The process for receiving a fax is similar. The sender’s fax is sent to the eFax® server which in turn sends it to your eStation AIO using HP’s ePrint service.

HP’s customized apps provide great templates for photos and calendars and enable access to print from Yahoo, SnapFish and Facebook. Using HP ePrint, you can access this AIO from virtually anywhere. You can connect it to your computer using the USB 2.0 or the wireless interface.

The HP Laser Jet Pro P1102w uses the “plug and print” technology that allows users to setup and get started with this printer in almost no time at all. You just need a USB cable and HP Smart Install for Windows.

This printer can also be connected to your wireless network. You can print wirelessly from laptops, smartphones and mobile devices with HP ePrint. To print from iPod touch, iPad or iPhone you need to use Apple Airtime. A firmware update is required to be able to use HP ePrint or Apple Airtime with this printer.

HP has implemented the intelligent, energy saving, Auto On/Off Technology in the LaserJet Pro series printers.

It automatically goes into the “off” mode when it senses no printer activity.

With print speeds of up to 19 ppm for Letter sized paper and 18 ppm for A4 paper, the 150-sheet input paper tray, the 10-sheet priority input feeder and manual duplex printing, this robust and efficient laser printer is ideal for the small office.
