HP LaserJet 5000 Review
The HP LaserJet 5000 Laser Printer is an average speed printer with network connectivity incorporated, 1200 dots per inch maximum resolution, a 350-sheet input capacity and the ability to print from 3 x 5 inch to full-bleed 11 x 17 images. The device is affordable, compared to its monochrome competitors, works well for home purposes, but also for office if you don't focus on speed.
The standard HP LaserJet 5000 Printer works at a 16 pages per minute rate, comes with a 100-sheet multipurpose tray 1, a 250-sheet tray 2, a 4MB of memory and can print up to A3 and 11 x 17 inches pages. Its successor, the HP LaserJet 5000N only comes with a bigger sheet tray and an 8 MB memory, while the GN model comes with 12 MB memory. For all the models there is an optional 2GB hard disk, but this will cost. However, the hard disk is available for storage of additional fonts and forms only with the HP LaserJet 5000 GN printer.
The device is powered up by a 100 MHz RISC microprocessor. This is an average speed, with some printers in its class coming with better processors, such as the HP LaserJet 4300 (350 Mhz). The RAM memory is expandable to 100 MB through the three built-in DIMM slots. The printer comes with two EIO interface slots for I/O cards and disk cards.
The monthly duty cycle is 65.000 pages per month, which is a very good value, one of the highest (if not the best) in its class. If you buy this printer you should not print more than 65.000 pages per month, as the producer advises you this might decrease the printer's life cycle.
The HP LaserJet 5000 Laser Printer supports the following media types: paper (plain), labels, envelopes, card stock and transparencies.
The standard input capacity is good enough for 350 sheets, thanks to both sheet trays. However, considering all the options HP offers, this capacity might even extend to an impressive 1.100 sheets. The output capacity is 300 sheets, with 250 sheets on top and 50 sheets rear, thanks to the two output sources this printer comes with.
The unit's dimensions are 19 by 12 by 13 inches, which makes this printer fit well in every kind of home or office desk. The printer weighs 50 lbs, which is an average value.
The printer can be connected through an IEEE 1284 Bidirectional Parallel, an RS-232C Serial and two PCI Based EIO Slots. There's also the standard USB 2.0, don't be afraid.
The printer is compatible with Windows 3.1, 95/98 and 2000+ and with Unix, but surprisingly there is no support for Mac. If you are using this OS, you are just going to have to aim another printer.
The printer does not have a built-in duplexer and this might be a problem for companies aiming to cut down on costs. The duplexer allows automatic two-sided printing, but this model doesn't have one. Only the HP LaserJet 5000DN comes with the duplexer.
The speed is not impressive at all. The device works at a 16 pages per minute rate using FastRes 1200, 600 dots per inch or lower, and it only delivers 8 pages per minute if the user is using ProRes 1200 dpi. The first page will come out in 12.2 seconds if the printer was not previously warmed up. Comparing this model with another from its class, the HP LaserJet 4300 Laser Printer, which works at 45 pages per minute, the model we are reviewing seems to be produces two decades ago.
