HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn Review
The HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn, part of the 4650 series, is a proven performer for work-groups and workplaces. It fits any virtually any business, while, offering flexibility and usability. It dishes out professional prints to increase the efficiency of business communication. The paper capacity supports minimal user intervention with a high-load capacity. The Color LaserJet 4650dtn is white and sleek in design with its network interface located on the rear-right side of the printer. The 4650 series come in models 4650, 4650n, 4650dn, 4650dtn, and 4650hdn; all distinguishable by their add-ons and network interface. Surely, the 4650dtn is a veritable add-on for any business with a work-group.
As an important business tool, Color is a necessity for many business requirements. As businesses feel the hit of having to modernize, Color is required to improve professional images, learning, comprehension, and readership. Text is sometimes sufficient, but as compared to the saying goes, a picture can say a lot more with a lot less. The HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn can easily create visually-appealing presentations, documents, and marketing materials. HP asserts the printer will increase in-house efficiency, thereby, reducing outsourcing expenditure. Outsourcing expenditure significantly increases storages expenses, waste, and obsolete materials.
HP gives a recommended monthly duty-cycle of up to 85,000 pages. Automatic two-sided printing is available for those who want to conserve on paper-waste or create booklet-like prints. The HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn can hold a total of 1,100 sheets of paper. The generous paper-tray capacity is excellent for less human-physical intervention during print jobs. Media-sizes Envelopes (US 10, Monarch, B5, DL, C5), Executive, B5, A5, A4, Legal, and Letters are consistent with the printer. There is flexibility in its standard memory of 288 Mega Bytes, which, is upgradable to 544 Mega Bytes. Obtaining a hard disk for the 4650dtn is optional but not necessary. It is always nice to see manufacturers offer this kind of flexibility. There are two internal DIMM memory slots for those who need to network the printer for multiple use. The DIMM slots take 200-pin DDRs.
The dimensions of the HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn are quite surprising with its given features and paper capacity. It is 27.3 inches in height, 20 inches in depth, and 18.9 inches in width with a weight of 97 pounds. The preceding models of the series are lighter in weight and smaller in size and the 4650hdn printer is significantly heaver in weight and bigger in size. Essentially, the HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn facilitates the best of both worlds. For the 4650dtn, there is a 100-sheet capacity multipurpose tray, two 500-sheet capacity trays, power cable, user guide, software, CD-ROM, Jet Direct 620n print server, and starter cartridges.
HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn's in-line printing can print black-based and color-based documents at approximately 22 pages per minute. The resolution is 600 x 600 dots per inch for both settings but is made up for with HP Image REt 3600. The Image REt 3600 produces professional-quality prints with an accurate print mechanism. Combined with the HP Image REt3600, a 600 dots per inch pixel are capable of combining four colors to create over 100,000 colors.
The image enhancements of the printer's HP Image REt3600 enables brilliant edge control like Adaptive Half-toning, Halo Reduction, Trapping, and Color Ret. Color control facilitates intelligent calibration with Strategic Timing, Environmental Compensation, and Automatic Closed Loop Color Calibration. The printer can detect media-types automatically and is optimized for HP Glossy laser prints.
The network interface is made up of USB 1.1, Fast Ethernet internal print server (HP JetDirect 620n), and parallel port (Bidirectional IEEE-1284-C). Languages associated with the HP Color LaserJet 4650 series are native PDF printing, HP PostScript 3, web downloadable HP PCL 5c, HP PCL 6, and PDA/Mobile phone printing via HP bt1300 adapter. Modern network operating systems like Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98 SE, and Windows 98. The good news is that the printer will work with UNIX and Linux systems. With the Mac compatibility, the printer is relatively universal to modern operating systems. There is even a larger list of network operating systems compatible with the printer; like Novel NetWare, Red Hat Linux, Solaris, IBM (with software from vendor), Mac, and Windows-based. With the printer's large array of network protocols supported, modern businesses have no problem installing the device for use.
HP offers a descriptive service, support, and warranty plan for the HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn printer. They help with the installation and set-up, phone support, customer care, upgrade options, network installation, and a standard one-year hardware warranty.
There is not many cons associated with the HP Color LaserJet 4650dtn. It is worth mentioning that the 4650dtn does not facilitate the EIO hard disk and the extra 500-sheet capacity tray the 4650hdn has. Though, it is expected for high-end printers, the printer is quite hefty to move around the office. The 4650dtn is a printer only. It does not scan or fax documents. HP should of included scanning and faxing features for the printer. While the 600 x 600 dots per inch resolution for both Color and Black is accommodated with the HP Image REt3600, it would be great to see an increase of resolution to 1200 x 1200 dots per inch.
