HP Color LaserJet CP1215 Review
The HP Color LaserJet CP1215 is a printer that is compact and effortless to operate. It is a laser printer that can be used to fulfill business work-groups. The printer's carbon-footprint is self-effacing. It is not particularly often for a printer of this size to employ a laser and print in color, but this one does. This printer stands 10-inches tall, 17.8-inches deep, 15.7-inches wide, and weighs 38.9 pounds; it will rest upon any desktop of any style, without hassle.
The HP CP1215 has print speeds of 12 pages per minute in Black and 8 pages per minute in Color. Many individuals may find the speed to be satisfactory, but for most office environments, this is not sufficient. It takes approximately 25 seconds for the first print of the day, from Ready mode. Its resolution is 600 x 600 dots per inch, and the printer utilizes HP ImageREt 2400 technologies. Combined with its processor capable of 265 MHz and standard memory of 16 Mega Bytes, the printer can print a monthly volume of 250-1,000 pages per month safely. The maximum monthly duty cycle is roughly 25,000 pages.
There is nothing noteworthy about the design of the CP1215. It is compact with boxy-attributes and its corners rounded off. The Control Panel utilizes 9-Led indicators. They represent basic controls for the device; Paper Jam, Paper Feed, Power button, Cancel button, Resume button, Ready light, and multiple lights that represent the toner levels. In front of the printer, a one-door access panel houses the 4-individual cartridges. Below the cartridge panel, a 150-sheet input tray handles multipurpose medias. This is strange, because most printers of this size will have its input tray in the rear or top of the printer. This printer is vice-versa with its output-bin located on the top of the printer. Give thanks to the printer's lack of internal automatic duplexing and networking hardware; this is what makes the printer so lightweight.
This printer is simple; it prints with mediocre quality and slow speeds. Media types one can use with the printer consist of transparencies, cardstock, envelopes, and paper (rough/recycled/prepunched/preprinted/plain/photo/letterhead/glossy/color/brochure/bond). The printer is quite limited in acceptable sizes from 3 x 5-inches to 8.5 x 14-inches, envelopes, executive, legal, and letter. It comes with a power cable, CD (with software), starter guide, introductory inks, and a one-year limited warranty.
While the printer can accommodate business requirements, the printer is discouragingly dawdling in terms of print speeds. There is no LCD screen for those whom want to preview their prints before printing. The price-range is dispiriting because the printer is not compatible with Macintosh systems, has a fixed-resolution, and is incapable of automatic duplexing.
Consumers may get more for their money if they go for the Dell 1320c laser printer; which has faster speeds. HP asserts the printer is work-group compatible, but the printer does not incorporate any Wi-Fi capabilities or an extensive network interface. It goes to show that users will have to implement some critical thinking skills to get the printer ready for work-groups. The printer does not provide any unique or useful paper handling tools; the input bin is on the front-bottom and the output bin is on the top. It should be the other way around. End-users may find themselves displeased when the lack of paper management dishes out prints all over the place. This printer would require much more human intervention than most modern printers, to manage documents. People who need a single sheet feed tray will be sorely disappointed by the lacking.
