If you are in the market for a black and white printer for your workgroup, take a look at the HP LaserJet 4050tn printer using LaserJet 4050tn cartridges. Available features on this laser printer will meet the requirements of most workgroups from small to mid-size. Hewlett Packard has been a leading provider of laser printers for many years.
One benefit that is always important in the office setting is speed. A print rate of 17 pages every minute ensures that you will not be wasting a lot of time waiting for your print job to be complete. It will begin printing in less than 15 seconds. If the document has a great deal of graphics, of course, this will slow down the print rate as with any printer.
The RAM on this printer comes at a standard 16 MB of memory, however, you can expand this up to 200 MB. There is an optional 2 GB hard drive which will allow you additional capabilities which can be accessed from a control panel on the printer. Some of these features involve storing of jobs which can then be programmed for printing at a later date.
Print quality is not sacrificed with the 1200 dpi output ability. In addition, the printer also has a special technology for resolution enhancement. These features, combined with the toner cartridge used, allow for presentation quality printing.
Three paper trays come standard with the 4050tn, one for 100 sheets of paper and the two others for 250 each. This will also save you time as you will not have to replace the paper constantly. If these are not sufficient, you have the option of a 500 sheet feeder which will give you more than 2 reams of paper to use before having to refill.
The trays, by the way, hold standard 8.5 x 11 inch letter size sheets. You can add the ability to print on legal size, 8.5 x 14, with an optional universal tray that holds 250 sheets. It can print on envelopes, labels, transparencies and other types of specialty papers such as business cards. If you plan to print a lot on envelopes, you may want to get the optional envelope feeder which will raise your capacity from 10 to 75.
Connectivity is simple, both wireless or wired. The installed Ethernet is usable with many operating systems such as Apple, PC and Unix. With the infrared adapter, you can also print from laptops and PDAs wirelessly, or any other device that has infrared ability.
Though this is not a new model of HP black and white printer, it has maintained its value over the time since it was first brought onto the market. It is available refurbished from many different sources and at a very economic price. For further savings, you can choose the higher volume version of the toner cartridge and your cost per page printed will go down.
For workgroups with high output that is needed fast, this LaserJet 4050tn printer toner cartridge is a good option. When you consider how well it performs and the available features it is a bargain compared to some more expensive printers. The only negative is that it does not do duplex printing but unless that is a common need for your office, it is no reason not to purchase this printer.
Cost effective is also a way to describe HP LaserJet 4050tn printer toner. Eliminating reprints saves times and money and HP compatible toners does this. Low cost continues when you re-order replacement toner online.
