The HP Business Inkjet 2230 is a color inkjet printer that aims to walk the line between an expensive office laser and a consumer inkjet model. It has the speed and features of a more serious business machine at a much lower cost, and HP ink cartridge
costs are very reasonable, thanks to inexpensive HP 2230 ink. Network support is available as an upgrade, and the unit has cross-platform support.
The compact design of the 2230 will appeal to those with limited space. It measures 20.2 inches by 20.3 inches by 8.2 inches and weighs around 20 pounds. It includes 16 MB of RAM, allowing it to store documents internally to take some of the strain off the host computer, and memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 176 MB. Input paper capacity is 250 sheets, and a wide variety of media types are supported, including envelopes, transparencies, labels, iron-on transfers and more.
Automatic duplexing is not supported, but users can do manual duplexing, and the software walks them through the process of re-feeding the paper properly. Print speed is fast, at up to 15 pages per minute for black and 14 pages per minute for color. The 600 dpi printing resolution produces sharp and detailed prints.
The machine uses individual printer ink
tanks, so replacing HP 2230 ink cartridges means less waste than models that consolidate all colors into only two tanks. Business Inkjet 2230 ink cartridges are very affordable, and buyers can choose to use third-party compatible Business Inkjet 2230 ink to save even more.
For small business users who need a serious printer with great speeds and print quality but don't have the budget for an expensive laser, the HP Business Inkjet 2230 is a great combination of performance and affordability, and low-cost HP 2230 ink makes it an excellent value.
