New HP Printer Breaks World Records
It isn’t every day a piece of technology lands in the Guinness Book of World Records. So the recent announcement that HP’s new desktop printer is setting world records for speed got attention. Technology reviewers from PC Magazine to CNET came forward to try out the device’s various features and came back with rave reviews.
On the market since 1988, HP has cornered the market on small business printing, providing multi-function devices ideal for home offices and small business suites. The two HP OfficeJet Pro X Series devices that set records, and are sold exclusively at Staples, are single-function printers dedicated solely to print jobs. The HP OfficeJet Pro x451dn can print 55 pages per minute in general office mode, offering duplex and enterprise network capabilities. The HP OfficeJet Pro x551dw can print a jaw-dropping 70 pages per minute in office mode and, in addition to duplex and enterprise capabilities, adds wireless printing and a USB slot on the front of the device.
Revolutionizing Business Printing
The small business world is growing each year, as technology allows small businesses to compete with big businesses in ways never before seen. Recognizing this, HP has honed in on this segment, creating a line of desktop printers that are productive enough to meet the daily demands of a small business, while still keeping operating costs low.
Along with HP’s new lightning-fast models, Staples has added HP’s newest multi-function printers to its stores. Staples has seen a growing demand for deskjets, as HP technology has allowed for print quality that rivals laser printers at a fraction of the price. Laser printers not only command a higher price tag, toner cartridges can run in the hundreds of dollars. HP’s quick-drying ink allows a busy entrepreneur to rush documents from the printer to the conference room without worrying about smudges.
Staples, America’s number one choice for ink and toner, has a full line of XL cartridges for HP’s deskjet line, each having a print yield of thousands of pages. Small business owners can also return empties to Staples stores for $2 in rewards toward future purchases. With additional rewards and rebates, business owners can shave money off office supply budgets while speeding up print time.
A Growing Market
Inkjet printing is a growing market, with the devices expected to replace laser printers in offices around the world. Technology consultant Zac Butcher says the market will grow 5.2 percent each year, with an expected 18.9 million inkjet printers in use worldwide by 2016.
Inkjet printers have come a long way since 1988, with prices dropping from around $1,000 to just a few hundred dollars. With added functionality for scanning, faxing, and copying, the HP multi-function printer can replace four separate devices in some offices. For the startup business, a trip to Staples can provide all of the functionality a business needs to start doing business right away.
