HP LaserJet 3800dtn Printer Review
The HP LaserJet 3800dtn printer is a color device, offering high print quality, fast results and powerful hardware products. The printer is network ready by standard, has a large input capacity and features a built-in duplexer for automatic two-sided printing.
The printer is fast, though not the fastest in its class. It gives 22 pages per second for both monochrome and color documents. However, depending on the computer configuration, software application and drivers, the speed can be lower. It's not impressive, but it does a decent job. The first page comes out in 12.5 seconds when the printer hasn't been warmed up previously.
The printer features HP ImageREt 3600, working at a maximum resolution of 600 x 600 dots per inch.
The HP LaserJet 3800dtn is powered up by a 533 MHz processor, one of the fastest in its class, and features a 288 MB RAM, expandable to a maximum capacity of 544 MB through one available DIMM slot.
HP recommends printing less than 65.000 pages each month, because this value is the maximum monthly duty capacity. Overusing the device means its life will considerably decrease over the time. The producer recommends printings between 1.500 and 5.000 pages each month, this value being the monthly recommended volume. If you want your printer to always work at optimal parameters, then make sure you will print between those ranges.
The printer features a maximum input capacity of 850 sheets, thanks to one 100-sheet multipurpose tray, one 250-sheet tray and a 500-sheet tray. The output bin can handle up to 250 sheets. Those values are not impressive, but this is a printer for small companies or medium ones, they do not really need more than that.
The HP LaserJet 3800dtn features a built-in duplexer for automatic two-sided printing, allowing the users to print on both sides of the paper without moving a finger. This feature mainly aims companies which want to cut down on costs, consumables and time, and today's most important printers are always featuring it.
The printer supports the following media types: Paper (plain, preprinted, letterhead, prepunched, bond, recycled, tough, color, glossy, rough), transparencies, labels, envelopes, cardstock and user-defined.
The HP LaserJet 3800dtn is network ready from its producer, so you will not have to pay additional money to get it. This model features the HP Jetdirect Fast Ethernet embedded print server. However, if you are not happy with it, you can always get the optional Gigabit Ethernet 802.11b/g Wireless LAN and other networking accessories.
The printer supports the following media sizes: Custom (3 by 5 inch to 8.5 by 14 inch), letter, legal, executive, statement and envelopes (No. 10, Monarch).
The device can be connected through an available Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port, one available EIO slot and one IEEE 1284-Bidirectional Parallel port.
The printer comes with 80 HP font set (plus Greek, Hebrew, Cyrillic and Arabic) and features the following languages: HP PCL6, HP PCL5, HP postscript level 3 emulation and direct PDF printing (v 1.4) with at least 128 MB printer memory.
The printer supports the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows 98+, Novell NetWare 3.2+, Mac OS 9.1+, Mac OS X 10.2+, Red Hat Linux 6+, SUSE Linux 6+, HP UX 10.20+, Solaris 2/5+, IBM AIX 3.2.5+ and Citrix MetaFrame.
I do not actually know if there's something bad at this printer. I've been thinking about it, but I can't see to figure it out. Let's say the speed is not impressive, some of its competitors (DELL Color Laser Printer 5110CN, for example) deliver faster results, such as 40 pages per minute. However, I do not think you should not consider this device just because of its speed, it offers very good features for its price.
