HP Color LaserJet CM1017mfp Review
With the economy on the drop, consumers try out ways to dodge the downfall and contribute their part in the economy. Many individuals take up work in the cyber-age, in which case, their new-found vocation requires a multifunction printer capable of professional-quality prints and graphics. The HP Color LaserJet CM1017mfp is a solid printer that is an excellent option for small-medium offices. People in vocations like insurance or real-estate find the MFP a veritable add-on to their growing business. This printer is not really ideal for vocations like work-from-home or the like. It is 17.3 inches in width, 20 inches in depth, 21.3 inches in height, and 50 pounds in weight; it will fit nicely upon a sturdy desktop in the office.
The printer component can dish out 8 pages per minute for color or black. With its processor speed at 300 MHz and standard memory of 96 Mega Bytes, it can handle complex documents quite easily. It takes up to 20 seconds to print out an A4-sized document from start-up. The standard resolution for both, Color and Black, is 600 x 600 dots per inch.The printer languages for the HP Color LaserJet CM1017mfp are PostScript 3 emulation, PCL 5c, and PCL 6. The Control Panel is 2 by 4 inches. It offers a variety of control features over photo, scan, and copy components. For those who have trouble seeing small icons and text, the LCD can accommodate by enabling the user to reduce/enlarge its display. The LCD is located on the right to the scanner.
There is no change in speeds, in comparison to the printer, with the copier. It can generate eight copies per minute in Black or Color-based documents. Users can set the number of continuous copies to 99. Copy resolution is the same as the printer resolution; 600 x 600 dots per inch. Copy documents can be resized in increments between 25-100%.
The flatbed, hat-like, scanner can produce scans at an impressive resolution of 1200 x 1200 dots per inch in optical mode and 19,200 dots per inch in enhanced mode. The maximum-size document that will fit atop the scanner is 21.6 by 29.7 centimeters. It scans in color or black. Scanning is always in demand, especially with the rise of fax-capable computers via DSL or better connection. With 24-bit depth capabilities and 256 gray scale levels, scanned documents are enthralling. Scans can be in a large-variety of formats like PNG, PCX, FPX, JPG, TIF, BMP, PDF, HTML, RTF, and TXT.
The standard two paper trays may be enough for many people, if not, the maximum number of trays can be three. Its input tray, located at the bottom of the printer's front, can hold up to 250 sheets of paper. The tray can be adjusted to accommodate various media-sizes and types. There is a single-paper manual feed tray in the front panel of the tray. Users have the option of incorporating another 250 sheet tray; bringing the total maximum capacity to 500 sheets. The trays are capable of handling various medias like Plain Paper, Legal, Cardstock, Envelopes, Labels, and Transparencies. Though, the medias have a wide-variety of types from plain to professional.
The standard network interface is on the upper-right side, near the rear. It is made up of a built-in Ethernet RJ-45 Port for 10/100 Base TX and a Hi-Speed USB port that is consistent with 2.0 tech specs. Older and Modern operating systems for Windows, Linux, Unix, Citrix, and Mac are consistent with the printer; Citrix works for the print only.
As the cyber-age progresses, consumers prefer a hands-free method of dealing with everyday tasks. Unfortunately, for the HP Color LaserJet CM1017mfp, duplex printing is manual. Businesses involved in a lot of 2-sided prints will find their workers intervening physically, for the majority of the time, with the printer. It can raise labor-costs and cause workers to focus on less important tasks. Though, modern computers retain the capacity to take scans and fax them over a secure line via DSL/Broadband, not everyone has a fax-capable computer. It would be nice to see Hewlett & Packard include fax capabilities in such a high-priced printer. The scanner is manual; therefore, it lacks the automatic feature.
