HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi Review
The HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi is a robust printer that excels in productivity. It simplifies sharing and management of work-groups. The printer is practically effortless to install and operate. Hewlett & Packard created the printer with the latest technology. All the useful components create sophisticated physical and digital documents with print-shop value. The dimensions of the printer rest at 19.6 inches in width, 19.3 inches deep, 19.1 inches tall, and 54.5 pounds in weight. It can snugly fit atop any sturdy desktop or table.
The printer is print, fax, copy, and scan-capable. Four functions integrated into a consolidated device helps reduce the expense of space and costs for extra devices. There are some photo-card slots. The slots are useful for the marketing niche. Memory cards can be viewed and browsed from a computer. The print speeds are not too slow at 12 pages per minute; if you do not mind waiting five seconds per black text-based page. Color printing significantly reduces output speeds at eight pages per minute; roughly 7.5 seconds per page. The copier utilizes Instant-On technology that can deliver a copy in mere seconds. Suitable for the marketing niche, which, consists of marketing the same thing in large numbers. So, it makes sense for HP to focus the power and speed of the device on its copy-components.
The resolution in printing is 600 x 600 dots per inch. This relatively low dots per inch resolution are accommodated by HP ImageREt 3600, edge-enhancement technologies from HP, and ColorSphere toner. The scanner dishes out digital copies with an optical resolution of 1200 x 1200 dots per inch or interpolated enhanced resolution of 19,200 dots per inch.
The scanner is quite sophisticated with a 50-sheet automatic document feeder on the top-left of the MFP. All the user needs to do is load the document, and leave it unattended for auto-faxing, scanning and copying. Its flatbed scanner will scan flats, bounds, and 3D objects. Many scanners have trouble with bindings because when scanned, there is gutter or black lines at the bindings. This commonly occurs when the media is uneven in pressure. Along with the share and management feature, the scanned documents can be distributed digitally to email or folders in the printers control panel. The Readiris PRO optical-character recognition program will turn texts into searchable and editable files.
The fax feature is simplified and automatic with capabilities like fax forwarding, 120 locations broadcasting, speed-dial of up to 120 numbers, auto-redial, 250-pages of fax memory, phone, PC fax, and fax polling. It transmits faxes at 36.6 Kilo Bits Per Second.
The MFP takes documents in size ranging from 3 x 5-8.5 x 14 inches. Its document feeder can hold 50 sheets. The total media-capacity rest at 150 sheets with an output tray capacity of 125 sheets.
Various photo memory cards like xD-Picture Card, Multimedia Card, Secure Digital, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick, and CompactFlash Type 1/2 are compatible with the MFP. The MFP runs on a processor that runs at 450 MHz in lieu of 160 Mega Bytes of memory. It's not surprising that the machine can dish out 250-1,500 pages per month without impediments. It has a monthly duty cycle of 30,000 pages, but 250-1,500 pages a month is the recommended limit. The good news is that, in the most hectic of times, the printer will pull through large-volume prints if need be.
The wizard of installation and fax setup supposedly consists of only a few clicks on a computer mouse. Navigation through the device functionality is simple with the color 2.4-inch graphical screen. It notifies the end-user when ink or supplies are edging towards nil. Every one appreciates a printer with a good networking-ability. The printer network interface facilitates a High-Speed USB port, Ethernet 10 Base-T, and Ethernet 100 Base-TX.
Even with its healthy-array of network functions, the printer does not incorporate Wi-Fi capabilities. Sure, any tech savvy individual can make the printer Wi-Fi, but not everyone is tech savvy. There is no manual feed. The dots per inch resolution for printing could be higher than it currently is, but HP decided to forego this desirable quality that is much needed in modern MFPs. Though, the printer is okay in speed; it lacks flexibility in media-capacity. There are not any optional add-ons for the printer. It does not make any sense for the input tray to hold 150 sheets, while, the output tray only holds 125 sheets.
