OfficeJet Pro X allegedly world's fastest desktop printer
Hewlett Packard today announced the worldwide release of the new HP Officejet Pro X [website not yet updated], which is, according to the Guinness World Records, the world's fastest desktop inkjet printer. Also announced by the company are the HP Officejet Pro 251dw, and Officejet Pro 251dw Multifunction printers.
HP PageWide Technology delivers four colors of HP ink at one time onto a moving sheet of paper. As the paper moves, the printhead remains stationary -- allowing the HP Officejet Pro X Series to print quickly and quietly. HP 970 and 971 ink cartridges feature quick-drying, long-lasting pigment inks, and feature optimized color mixing and paper interaction for high-speed printing. The HP Officejet Pro X uses up to 50 percent less energy with up to 50 percent less supplies waste than laser, while offering comparable quality. The HP Officejet Pro X Series is now shipping worldwide. Single-function models start at $449, and MFPs start at $649.
The HP Officejet Pro 251dw printer and the HP Officejet Pro 276dw multi-function printer offer up to 50 percent lower cost per page than color laser. The HP Officejet Pro series is outfitted with enterprise-ready manageability solutions, including HP Universal Print Drivers, HP Web Jetadmin software, HP Managed Print Services (MPS) and enterprise-ready solution enablement. The HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer and the HP Officejet Pro 276dw MFP will be available worldwide later this spring. No pricing is available.
