HP LaserJet 4000TN Review
Originally released back in 1997, the HP LaserJet 4000 TN was part of HP’s 4000 printer series which offered five model variations on a set of hardware that was both fast and affordable. The 4000 TN model in particular was the flagship of the series, as it contained both networking abilities built in and not one but two paper trays for optimal versatility.
The primary difference between the HP LaserJet 4000 N and HP LaserJet 4000 TN models was the TN’s variation on the base model’s 500 sheet paper tray. The TN instead carried dual 250 sheet trays; the purpose of which being the allowance of two individual standard paper types at one time. With the ability to load two paper types such as letter and legal, users would not have to worry about loading and unloading paper stores in the event of a format change.
The unit also came complete with a 100 sheet multi purpose tray that was compatible with special media types as well as standard paper. Envelopes, transparencies, and card stock could be loaded in stacks and automatically printed to without the need to unload regular paper stores. Additionally, an extra 500 sheet lower paper cassette could be incorporated into the hardware for a total of 4 different paper drawers and 1,100 sheets worth of total storage space.
With a paper output capacity of 300 sheets, the HP LaserJet 4000 TN carries about three times the output storage than we usually see on today’s printers. It was also capable of printing at speeds of 17 pages per minute for letter sized paper and 16 pages per minute for legal size, which is roughly half the speed of what one might find in a similar personal laser printer currently on the market.
Print speeds would be cut in half when resolution was stepped up, however, from the standard 600 x 600 dots per inch to either FastRes 1200 or ProRes 1200, both of which would provide a 1200 dot per inch equivalent resolution for crisper text and graphics.
As with any older technological device, ownership of the HP LaserJet 4000 TN does have its drawbacks. Customer service is no longer available for the unit outside of printer message boards and fan made how to videos. Luckily, toner cartridges are readily accessible via third party dealers, but additional consumable parts such as fuser units will be harder to come by.
