HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One

 

The HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One (AIO) printer delivers everything you need in a home office MFP.

Network connector. Prints, scans, and faxes, over a network. Standalone fax and copier. Automatic document feeder.

Relatively slow. Although text is suitable for most business use, it's sub-par for an inkjet.

HP Officejet 4500 Wireless All-In-One

 

The HP Officejet 4500 Wireless All-In-One color inkjet multifunction printer gives small-office users a little bit of everything for a low price ($129 as of 02/11/2010), including Wi-Fi. This MFP is slow, however, and the ink costs are middling to pricey.

Very easy to use ; Wi-Fi connectivity

Slow at printing, copying, and scanning ; Standard-size black ink is expensive

You get a little bit of a lot of features with this entry-level MFP, including Wi-Fi. Unfortunately it's very slow, and only its high-yield black ink is a good deal.

HP Officejet 4500 multifunction inkjet printer

 

This mid-range HP small business printer has an integrated automatic document scanner

Useful 20-sheet automatic document feeder, fast monochrome A4 print speeds in draft mode

Slow colour and monochrome printing in regular quality print mode, no memory card ports, single-line screen doesn't display much information

If you're a business user who wants a cheap option for scanning or copying multi-page documents -- and if you don't mind mediocre quality draft prints -- the HP Officejet 4500 is hard to fault. Its consumable costs are reasonable, installation is easy...

Product Specifications

The Color LaserJet 4500DN from Hewlett-Packard sits at the top of the 4500 series with its built-in auto duplexer and additional 500-sheet paper tray. It is a network-ready color laser printer for workgroup printing applications. This versatile laser printer prints in color and monochrome, has a Fast Ethernet 10/100Base-TX print server, and is JetSend enabled for receiving compressed electronic documents. The 4500DN can be upgraded with optional memory upgrades and other network connection options. The Color LaserJet 4500 series printers are the only color printers that are HP JetSend enabled. They can receive compressed electronic documents directly from devices like the HP 9100C Digital Sender, and print in full color. A 133MHz processor and 64MB RAM (upgradeable to 208MB) powers the printer's yield of full-color prints at 4 ppm and crisp monochrome at 16 ppm, at 600 dpi resolution. HP ColorSmart II technology automatically provides the best color settings for consistent color results. This printer uses one each of black, cyan, magenta and yellow toner cartridges. Use a variety of media up to legal size with the Color LaserJet 4500DN including transparencies, specialty papers, envelopes and labels. A total of three 500-, 250- and 150-sheet paper input trays keep up to 900 sheets of paper on hand for large print jobs. An auto duplex unit provides unattended two-sided printing. The Color LaserJet 4500DN uses a parallel port interface, cable included. It comes with a JetDirect EIO card for Fast Ethernet 10/100Base-TX and has an open EIO slot for other optional HP JetDirect internal print servers for Ethernet and TokenRing networks. The 4500DN supports HP PCL 5C and PostScript Level 2 emulation, with 135 TrueType scalable typefaces. It comes with print drivers for Windows 3.1/95/98, Windows NT 3.51/4.0, OS/2, and Macintosh 7.1. Hewlett-Packard backs the Color LaserJet 4500DN printer with a one-year on-site warranty.
