HP Color LaserJet CP1518ni Review
The HP Color LaserJet CP1518ni is a printer that facilitates networking, media card slots, downloadable drivers, and HP Image REt3600 technologies. This printer is not fast, but it takes its time to provide professional, image-rich documents. As with most affordable and modern printers, there is always a trade-off in the society of printers. This printer resembles a lot like its predecessors, but this one offers more functionality and quality. Weighing at 40 pounds, this printer stands at 10.0-inches tall, 17.8-inches deep, and 15.7-inches wide. It will fit atop any desktop hutch.
While many office environments dislike the printer's rate of 12 pages per minute in Black-based and 8 pages per minute in Color-based documents, it should suffice for the home office. It takes approximately 25-30 seconds for the printer to warm-up and begin printing its first print of the day. The printer has a resolution of 600 x 600 dots per inch in both, Black and Color-based documents. The resolution is accompanied by the HP ImageREt technology, which, always enhance image-quality in printers lacking a solid base of resolution. Its processor is capable of 450 MHz and incorporates 96 Mega Bytes of memory for moderately complex jobs.
Hewlett & Packard recommends a monthly volume of 250-1000 pages, whereas, the printer is capable of 30,000 pages per month. There are three connections to utilize in networking; a USB 2.0 port, 2 EIOs, and a 1 Giga Byte Ethernet port. The printer works with modern OS computers like Windows 7, Windows XP series, Windows Vista, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, and Mac systems versions 10.2.8 or higher. The main printer languages are Hybrid print path, PostScript 3 emulation, PCL 5c, and PCL 6. Compatible media cards are Compact Flash, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Pro, (SD) Secure Digital, (MMC) MultiMedia, and xD-Picture Card. Memory is expandable to 64/128/256 Mega Bytes with compatible 144-pin DIMMs.
The printer is not too shabby in design with its boxy, rounded off edges. The 125-sheet output bin is perplexingly located on the top-middle of the printer. Its sophisticated 2-line LCD is on the front-right and supplies useful information to the end-user. Unlike the printer's predecessors, there is a strong variety of media slots directly below the LCD. The media area is made up of PictBridge, memory card slots, and a USB port. Right in front of the printer, a one-panel access houses the 4-ink system for easy installation. The input is made up of 2 components; the single-sheet feed slot, which takes precedence, and the 150-sheet specialized tray located below the single-feed. The priority feed and the 150-input slot can accept media sizes 3 x 5 inches to 8.5 x 14-inches, Legal, Letter, Executive, and envelopes. Various media types like Paper (rough/bond/recycled/brochure/prepunched/color/preprinted/glossy/plain/letterhead/photo), transparencies, cardstock, envelopes, and labels work best with the printer.
There are no wireless capabilities for the machine, at least not immediate. One may purchase a device like a print server to enable the printer for wireless capability. Still, this would cost more money and take more time. Many owners of this printer have complained about the paper jams during operation. This printer has apparently worked hard for the title 'a slow color printer'. While many businesses have different requirements in what makes a printer effective, it is obvious that the consumer experiences a 'miss' rather than a 'hit' more often. HP should of took extra steps in ensuring most printers do not have any isolated flaws, which, cause the printer to fail repeatedly during use. The power button is inconveniently placed in the rear of the printer. The totality of the machine does not permit the machine to be ideally recommendable to the average consumer. Especially, when there other printers that integrate better performance.
