HP J5750 Printer Information
For an all-in-one home office device, the HP OfficeJet J5750 is surprisingly affordable up front. This machine is compatible with most operating systems and has a compact footprint that will not take up too much desk space. It is also light in weight, at 17 pounds, and sleek in design, making it ideal for personal use. The J5750 is easy to use and fully loaded with printing, copying, scanning, and faxing functions, as well as a number of features that simplify daily tasks.
The paper handling is one of the more versatile features of this machine. The input tray can hold up to 100 sheets of standard paper, 40 cards, 25 transparencies, 20 labels, 15 envelopes, and 30 4x6-inch photos. The output tray can hold about half of that. There is also an ADF, which sits atop the flatbed scanner and that can hold up to 35 sheets of paper. A number of media types are also supported, expanding the kind of projects that can be produced.
Thermal inkjet technology delivers tiny dots of HP J5750 ink through nozzles, creating quality measured by the number of dots per inch. Print modes must be adjusted in order to reach the maximum resolution and maximum speed. Optimal speed happens in Draft mode, which minimizes the amount of OfficeJet J5750 ink applied, and results in a speed of 20 pages per minute for black-and-white and 13 pages per minute in color. Maximum dpi mode drops that speed to less than 1 pages per minute, but can reach an optimized resolution of 4800 dpi with the 6-color printer ink system.
Only two HP J5750 ink cartridges can be installed at one time, but there are 3 that can be used. One supply creates just black, the tricolor option holds cyan, magenta, and yellow, and the special photo OfficeJet J5750 ink cartridge holds light cyan, light magenta, and black. If the tricolor and photo printer ink are installed at the same time, this creates optimized photo quality. The yields of these supplies are low, though, so remanufactured versions of the HP J5750 ink are recommended to minimize operational costs.
With a copier that can create up to 100 duplicates per original, a scanner with built-in image editing and a 48-bit color depth, and a fax machine that offers 120 pages of memory with a 33.6 Kbps transmission rate, the HP OfficeJet J5750 is a good unit for the home office. The operational costs may add up if this inkjet machine is used frequently, but the benefits of its versatility are invaluable.
