HP ENVY 120 e-All-in-One Printer – sleek and versatile

By Databazaar Blog

HP ENVY 120 e-All-in-One Printer

The sleek and versatile HP ENVY 120 e- All-in-One performs print, copy and scan functions almost soundlessly. The paper tray automatically opens/closes on touch— just like a DVD tray. In fact you might mistake this AIO for a largish Blu-ray or DVD player. It doesn’t have the standard appearance of a printer.

The tilt-able front panel has a 4.33” color touchscreen which lights up to display icons for the various functions when you turn on the printer. Using the touchscreen you can tap and swipe your way to access the various functions as well as HP’s library of free apps. The flatbed scanner has a convenient see through lid—you can preview your scans before you touch the scan icon. The scanner supports a resolution of up to 1200 dpi and allows you to scan directly to e-mail.

Draft print speeds are in the range of 28 ppm (black) and 23 ppm (color). Automatic duplex printing is a standard feature. The input tray can handle up to 80 sheets; more than enough for low volume printing at home or in a home office. This printer has both USB as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. Mobile printing is supported via HP ePrint, Apple AirPrint and HP wireless direct printing. While you are printing, you can even charge your iPhone from the printer’s front USB port that has been optimized for smartphones.

Epson SureColor F-Series – High Performance Dye-Sublimation Transfer Printer

By Databazaar Blog

Epson_SureColor_F-Series_Transfer_Printer

Epson’s SureColor F-Series dye-sublimation transfer printers support a wide range of professional applications such as soft signage, sportswear, clothing, customized accessories and promotional items. These printers not only simplify the conventional dye-sublimation transfer process, they also remove design limitations and the hassles involving the use of chemicals. Using Epson’s digital imaging technology, there’s no limit on what you can print. Besides, there’s no minimum order quantity – you can print on just one garment or as many garments as ordered.

The F6070 and F7070 can handle 44” and 64” widths respectively and can deliver print speeds up to 618 sq ft/hr. Both models feature an integrated high-capacity ink system that uses Epson’s specially formulated Ultrachrome DS Ink. The ink is fast drying and guarantees brilliant color, sharp images and smooth gradations. You can purchase the inks in refill packs that are available in packs of six and reduce your overall cost. Refilling the ink tanks is a simple process.

Both models in the F-series use continuous 328 feet rolls that are available in standard multipurpose and low tack adhesive paper types. The low tack adhesive paper is great for use in the production of high-end sportswear, while the standard paper can be used on ceramic, regular t-shirts and promotional merchandise. These papers have a unique chemical coating that allows for heavier ink loads. Epson has also included the Wasatch RIP software that enables complete layout, color and printer management. The printers have been designed to deliver industrial-level reliability and they can be operated 24/7.

Summary

The Epson SureColor F-Series dye-sublimation transfer printer delivers high performance and better profits.

Dell_C1660w

The economically priced Dell C1660w Color Printer is built with LED technology. This compact printer can be easily connected on your wireless network.

You can print from Android mobile devices to this printer; support for iOS is expected to be available in January 2013.

The 150-sheet input capacity and 100-sheet output tray are sufficient for personal printing, homework assignments and even for the printing requirements of small businesses. The drum and fuser unit have been designed to last the life time of the printer thereby ensuring low maintenance. You just need to replace the toner cartridges and stock up on paper. The toner cartridges that ship with the printer have a 500 page capacity (Black as well as C/M/Y). The standard replacement toner cartridges have yields of 1,250 pages (Black) and 1,000 pages (C/M/Y).

Print resolution is 600 x 600 dpi and you can get pretty decent print speeds of around 12 ppm mono and up to 10 ppm color when you print on letter/A4 paper. The printer’s standby and power saver modes keep energy consumption down when you aren’t printing. While you don’t get duplex printing, a port for a USB drive or an auto document feeder, the C1660w offers reliable color printing at a very affordable cost.

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. If you need wireless capability as well, then pick the LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dw which costs a bit more.

You can use the 50-sheet multipurpose tray with custom size papers, envelopes, cards or transparencies; the standard input tray can handle 250 sheets at a time. If you need more input capacity, then add on the optional tray that can take 500 sheets. Printing on both sides of the paper is easy with automatic duplex printing. 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.
