HP Color LaserJet 5550hdn Review
The HP Color LaserJet 5550hdn empowers businesses with its 11 x 17 inch color prints. Its prints are accurate, precise, and enthralling. The 5550hdn series enables users to exploit the flexible machine to store a generous number of paper-tray storages and print with a high-number of pages monthly. With dominant performance in printing, end-users save money and time with simplicity in productivity. With dimensions of 24.8 inches in width, 28.25 inches in depth, 43.2 inches in height, and a weight of 312 pounds; this printer is suitable for enterprise work-level environments.
With print speeds of 27 pages per minute for any mode and any color, the recommended monthly duty cycle of up to 120,000 pages will have businesses creating high-volume workloads swiftly and efficiently. Along with its blazing-fast speeds, the dots per inch resolution in Black or Color is 600 x 600. Despite the unappealing low-number of dots per inch resolution, the HP ImageREt 3600 is incorporated to pick up the slack.
HP ImageREt is a technology infused with modern printers and assists in delivering superior prints. The technology focuses and optimizes the elements in which printers utilize. Currently there are 3 levels of ImageREt technology; 2400, 3600, and 4800. The 3600 delivers prints at a professional level with its dual-beam high-resolution imaging system. With its true print mechanism, significant enhancements for images come into play. The enhancements consist of features like Color Ret, Halo Reduction, Adaptive Half-Toning, and Trapping.
The layout and design of the Color LaserJet 5550hdn provides a relatively straightforward method of handling the printer. The control panel, on the top-middle of the printer, displays four lines of animated graphics and text simultaneously. Just below the control panel, a front-door provides convenience in access to cartridges for removal and maintenance. Below the front-door, end-users can access the automatic two-sided duplex printer. The lower-area of the printer houses two adjustable trays with a 500-sheet capacity for each. The HP JetDirect 620n Ethernet port is located on the upper-right side of the printer. This makes it opportune to adjust the network connections without having to move the heavy printer around. It comes with printer stand, so end-users can push-slide the printer when required.
The printer's useful data can be accessed from HP Toolbox. Documentation, troubleshooting, printer status, links to HP support, Embedded Web Server, and self-help can be accessed via the HP Toolbox. Networking, installation, and remote management is made possible through Web Jetadmin. Through the management features, administrators can assign specific colors to specific users, restrict/enable access to colors/applications, and track usage distinguishable from the user and device. The network interface consists of a Gigabit Ethernet Jetdirect 630n IPv6, internal server Jetdirect 635n IPsec/IPv6, and Fast Ethernet Jetdirect 620n, which, further illustrates expediency in enterprise-settings.
Businesses operating with Windows 2000 will need a 300 MHz processor and 64 Mega Bytes of RAM. Windows XP with a 233 MHz processor and 64 Mega Bytes of RAM is needed to maneuver the printer. If end-users are operating with Windows Vista, the system needs at least 180 Mega Bytes of free hard disk space, 1 GHz processor, and 512 Mega Bytes of RAM. Mac users will need at least 160 Mega Bytes of RAM. Other than the stated minimum requirements, operating systems like Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows XP versions, Windows 2000, or Mac OS versions 9 or higher are consistent with the use of the printer.
The HP Color LaserJet 5550hdn prints only; it does not integrate scan, fax, or copy features. If the printer was capable of scanning, copying, and faxing; it would be nearly flawless provided it had a higher dots per inch resolution. The printer is quite expensive for the average consumer. It weighs 312 pounds; do not count on moving the printer around by yourself. While the printer utilizes HP ImageREt 3600 technologies, it would be nice to see this printer incorporate a higher resolution of at least 1200 x 1200 dots per inch in color.
