The HP Business Inkjet 1200d takes the concept of a color inkjet printer a bit further than most models, adding reliability and efficiency that small office users will appreciate. The ink cartridges
are divided into individual colors meaning that HP 1200d ink is less costly to replace, with less waste. Networking support and automatic duplexing add convenience, and its compact size and affordable price are impressive.
The design of the 1200d inkjet is impressively compact, especially when it includes so many features. It measures 8.3 inches by 19.9 inches by 18.2 inches, and weighs 20 pounds, which is a good fit for smaller spaces. The 1200dn, 1200dtn and 1200dtwn models add a number of additional features such as networking and extra paper capacity, and most of these are also available as upgrades to the base model. For network-enabled models, connecting and sharing the unit across a network is easy to setup, and users can access important features and functions from any connected computer.
Both Windows and Mac platforms are supported, installing and setting up the software is a simple process. Print speed is fast at up to 28 pages per minute for black and 24 pages per minute for color, and the 4800x1200 dpi printing engine provides excellent output quality for business documents and presentations. However, if you are looking for a high quality photo printer, the HP C4795 ink
printer is better suited for that task.
Buyers hoping to save on HP ink
will be glad to know that HP 1200d ink cartridges use four individual tanks, which eliminate waste by only replacing the color that is low. Users can opt for third-party compatible Business Inkjet 1200d ink instead of OEM versions for more savings. Large capacities also give Business Inkjet 1200d ink cartridges a low cost per page.
For offices that don't have the need for large laser models, but have outgrown consumer printers, the HP 1200d is a good middle choice. It has the speed and performance an office needs at a much lower price than most business machines, and HP 1200d ink costs are very economical.
