HP 1115 Printer Information
Designed specifically for printing photos, the HP Photosmart 1115 is a perfect personal printer for amateur photographers. Rather than paying for someone else to print pictures, this device allows users to print borderless images right at home, ranging from 4x6-inches up to 8.5x11-inches. With a weight of less than 15 pounds and a compact frame of 17.6x14.5x7.7 inches, the 1115 is also easy enough to bring along to special events, like family reunions or birthday parties, for on-the-spot photo printing.
As a single-purpose inkjet printer, what the 1115 lacks in versatility, it makes up for with features centered on quality. Through the HP PhotoRet III software, the HP Enhanced Color Layering Technology creates colorful images with a maximum quality of 2400x1200 dpi. Using only the pigment black HP 1115 ink, black-and-white tasks will have a top resolution of 600 dpi. Optional duplexing is also available, which allows for dual-side printing.
The black HP 1115 ink cartridge can yield up to 830 pages, while the tricolor supply (consisting of yellow, magenta, and cyan printer ink) will yield up to 450 pages. There is also a high-capacity tricolor Photosmart 1115 ink cartridge that can yield up to 970 pages, slightly reducing the cost per print. Another cost-saving option is to use remanufactured versions of the HP 1115 ink that are sold by some third-party vendors.
Mac and Windows users can use this printer, connected primarily via the USB interface. There is also a parallel port and slots for memory cards. A small preview LCD screen is on the front panel, which also serves as an indicator for low Photosmart 1115 printer ink levels. This unit also has an automatic paper type sensor, which makes it easy for users to change media types. Various media types are supported and can be held in the 100-sheet input tray, including photo paper, labels, iron-on transfers, labels, transparencies, and envelopes.
The maximum speed is 12 pages per minute, which is partially fueled by the 16 MB of built-in RAM. With a monthly print capacity of 5,000 pages, the HP Photosmart 1115 gives users the ability to print a number of pictures per day.
The 1115 definitely focuses on buyers who want to output sharp quality photos, without sacrificing too much speed in the process. All of its quality-focused features make this inkjet photo printer a must-have for photo enthusiasts.
