This is a compact network printer for small workgroups with color printing
needs. It has both USB and network ports to be used by a single PC on a network.
The printer employs ImageREt technology for enhanced color printing and supports
a print resolution 600×600 dpi for both color as well as monochrome prints. The
printer has a 450 MHz processor that speeds up the printing and comes with 96MB
memory. The input tray has a capacity of 150-sheets and can accept pages of upto
legal size, but the printer does not support additional trays. For a workgroup,
150 sheets is a low number. Also this printer lacks a duplexer, with which dual
side printing can be done automatically. However, it supports manual duplex

To test this printer, we installed it on an isolated network. It took around
26 seconds to print the first page print. It achieved a print speed of 10 pages
per minute for monochrome printing and 7 pages for color printing. This is lower
as compared to the Canon LBP -5050 (reviewed April ’09). The LBP -5050 gave 12
ppm mono and 8ppm color print speeds. The quality of print for both color and
mono for HP’s laserJet were excellent, with good details and sharpness.

Bottomline: Given the price, print quality and performance, this
printer is a good choice for workgroups having color printing requirements.
