HP Officejet Pro 8100 ePrinter Review: Fast, Inexpensive Operation

 

If you're looking for a low-priced color laser printer for your small office, look again: For a mere $150 (as of May 1, 2012), you can obtain high-speed, good-quality color printing with HP's Officejet Pro 8100 ePrinter. This classily-styled color...

Cheap ink ; Speedy

Oversaturated color graphics

Small workgroups looking at color lasers should note that this inkjet is faster and cheaper to operate, and that it can print crisp text as well as very nice photos.

HP Officejet Pro 8100 ePrinter

 

One last important strong point is the low claimed running cost, at 1.6 cents per black and white page and 7.2 cents per color page. That's a lot less expensive than most competitive ink jets or lasers. It's also a match for the WP-4020 for black and...

Fast. Reasonably high-quality output. Duplexes. Prints through cloud. Low claimed cost per page

A little big and heavy for an inkjet

The HP Officejet Pro 8100 ePrinter is a prime example of a new generation of inkjets that can go head to head with color lasers on speed while beating them on price.

PC World says, "The Officejet Pro 8100 seems sturdily built, and it's more than likely to outlast its one-year warranty." HP also offers a two-year extended warranty for a relatively modest cost. PC World notes that it takes the place of the standard...

Fast, Double-sided printing, Easy on consumables

HP OfficeJet Pro 8100 ePrinter review

 

HP adds a nice touch to the Officejet Pro 8100's control panel in the form of a small front LCD for showing ink levels, Wi-Fi status, and when you're out of paper. Onboard buttons are limited to an eject button and toggle buttons for the ePrint...

Speedy; cheap ink

Over-saturated colour graphics

Fast and competent, the Officejet Pro 8100 is a more economical choice than a colour laser printer. But so are most business-class inkjets.

Too good to be true

 

Loved all the features listed on this printer...only to discover it doesn't support beyond Windows 7. Not Windows 10 compatible. Bummer.

I was looking for a printer that would offer good print quality with ease of use and a reasonably small size. You have given me the chance to buy exactly what I needed for an extremely reasonable price. Easy set up was also important to me, and I had...
