Product Review

Printout as observed is good. the slim dimension can be attributed to print only functionality. Without scanners or fax support, this printer can fit at an area of 17 inch by 8.5 inch ideal for tight spaces on your desktop table. Paper size is limited to the paper size mentioned above. Bigger paper size would require bigger printer, hence this printer is ideal for usual paper size printing for office work, school work and other tasks. Good to know that this printer is Energy Star certified, in which 10W is the active printing power used when you are printing the document. Lower standby time power means you can save power if you always turn on the printer than other high power standby mode printers. It supports Win 10 which ensures proper functioning on the latest OS on brand new systems. Nowadays, Intel Gen7 Core series processors will support Windows 10 and no longer become Win 7 compatible as announced by Microsoft. You can absolutely use this printer on Win 7 PCs since the printer can support widely used Windows distribution OS, and as well as OS X 10.8 up. Ink needs to be saved, as the cartridge capacity is much lower in terms of output paper per cartridge. If you plan to buy this printer and instantly convert it to continuous ink system, that will definitely void your warranty. Overall, the initial cost of acquisition is low compared to buying 3-in-1 printers. Ideal for minimal printing purposes.

Final Notes

For a budget color printer, you can now afford this printing only HP product for your small business or home office needs. The long term saving from the low power consumption printing will add up in years of use. It only have 1 year warranty. Doing ink system modification would be better done after the warranty is up. Hp recommends the use of genuine HP cartridge and inks.
