HP LaserJet 3390 Review
Having all the features as the LaserJet 3055, the 2005 HP LaserJet 3390 also has automatic 2-sided printing and the ability to handle 2-sided faxes, scans, and copies. An additional 250-sheet tray and larger toner cartridges help meet higher printing demands.
Unlike the LaserJet 3050, which uses a top-load paper feed, the 39-pound 3390 opts for the more traditional flat glass platen for scanning and copying. The platen design also allows for copying and scanning of items such as books or magazines, something that cannot be done with top-loaders without tearing the pages out.
Although a USB or computer network connection is required to run the printer, the control panel allows for the LaserJet 3390 to also function as a walk-up standalone machine for the other features. Scanning, faxing and copying controls to be performed without the need for a computer interface. Features include 10-number address book, redial, and a phone keypad for manual dialing of fax numbers
The LaserJet 3390 can hold up to 250 sheets of letter-sized or legal-size paper up to 20 pounds paper weight. Above the 250-sheet paper tray is what HP calls their “priority input slot” for envelopes and transparencies up to 80 pound paper weight. It named “priority” that because any media placed in the slot will immediately be used for the next print job, eliminating the “manual start print control” normally required when using multipurpose trays. A second 250-sheet tray can be purchased separately to give you the choice of having two different paper sizes, or a 500-sheet capacity for one size.
As a printer, the 3390 connects to your Mac or PC through USB 2.0, or via its built-in Ethernet. Having a maximum resolution of 1200 dpi, the LaserJet prints excellent high-resolution monochrome text and graphics at speeds up to 22 pages per minute. Understanding the printing needs of today’s businesses and the software applications and suites they often use, HP has installed PCL 5e, PCL 6, and PostScript 3 emulators.
While prints and copies are in B & W, the 3390 can scan in straight black-and-white, 256 grayscale or in 24-bit color. The optical resolution is 1200 dpi, and the included software can enhance it to a much higher resolutions. The scanning feature has software support for TWAIN, STI, and Microsoft’s WIA protocols.
The top-loading automatic document feeder allows for 30 single-sided originals up to 8.5” x 12”. The LaserJet 3390 can make up to 99 copies at the rate of 19 monochrome pages per minute. Copy magnification ranges from 25% to 400%. Copy quality can be set either manually, automatic adjustment of contrast, text or photo modes.
The Fax mode has all of the features an office needs. Auto-redial, ad-hoc group faxing, speed-dialing, 100-number distribution lists, delay faxing, and polling can all be performed using the controls on the front panel of the LaserJet 3390. Faxes can be sent and receive grayscale images up to 300 x 300 dpi resolutions. If the 3390 is printing or copying while a fax is being received, the LaserJet will store the fax in 4MB of Flash memory until the machine is available again. Another nice feature is fax-blocking to reduce junk faxes and billing codes for auditing fax usage.
HP equipped the 3390 with a surprising 64MB of memory. There is no expansion for additional memory but 64MB can handle just about any single print job or network printing requests.
60 decibels is the level of talking in a room. Now imagine that sound level in your office in the form of a printer. While practically silent in Standby, the LaserJet produces 63dB during power, wakeup, and printing. Fortunately the built-in Ethernet of the 3390 allows the all-in-one to be located anywhere in an office.
