With a variety of upgrade and expandability options available, the HP 1700ps is not only an impressive color inkjet printer, but it has the ability to grow to meet future demands. It has fast print speeds and excellent quality, as well as additional PostScript support for users who need it. Printer ink costs are kept low by affordable HP 1700ps ink.
The 1700ps is a bit larger than a typical consumer inkjet model to make room for its wide-format support. As a result it measures 27 inches by 22 inches by 11 inches and weighs 34.2 pounds with the HP ink
cartridges installed. This may be a bit too large for very small spaces, but it is generally easy to move around and find a place for in almost any office.
Speaking of wide-format support, the unit can handle media sizes up to a maximum of 13x50 inches and a variety of media types including glossy paper, banners, labels, index cards and envelopes as well as many others. Input paper capacity is 150 sheets, but that can be expanded to a maximum of 400 sheets by adding an optional 250-sheet paper tray. This makes it a good choice for a small office expecting growth in the future. If you don't need wide-format support the HP 6500 ink
printer may be a better fit.
Print speeds are around 16 pages per minute for black and 14.5 pages per minute for color. The 2400 dpi maximum resolution produces excellent print quality.
When it comes to ink cartridges
, the HP 1700ps has some of the most affordable in its class. Using individual color tanks means less waste when replacing HP 1700ps ink cartridges, and their large capacity gives HP 1700ps ink a better cost per page than most.
With great performance right out of the box and expansion options for the future, the HP 1700ps is a great value that has more to offer when you need it. Small office users will love its compact design and fast speeds.
