The HP LaserJet 2420 promises to serve the printing needs of organizations and big workgroups best with its high quality output, fast printing speed and its ability to expand and accommodate more features.
This monochrome laser printer is equipped with 2 trays. The first one takes a 100 sheets and the other feeds the printer 250 (thus 350 sheets in total). The printing speed of this printer is 30 pages per minute, however, most users reported 28 pages per minute tops. Another problem is that none of the printed sheets can be printed on both sides simultaneously because of the printer’s lack of a built-in duplexing mechanism. Still, the monthly duty cycle of 75000 sheets is quite good for those who need to print regularly.
Aside from sheets, other media can be used for printing. Media, whether light as transparencies or heavy like cardstock, is handled by the multipurpose tray. The latter can accommodate media with weights between 16lb and 53 lb. Envelopes (about 10 max) can also be fed to the printer through this tray because a separate envelope slot isn’t available.
Once in action, after making you wait for 10 seconds until the printer thaws out to print the 1st page, the output produced is bound to make you forget the missing features. Due to the printer’s laser technology and the 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, the printed text is sharp and readable. Plus, there is always room for improvement when it comes to the capacity and responsiveness of the printer because additional memory slots are available to help increase the size of the printer’s RAM to 288Mb.
Another feature which can help in boosting the functionality of the HP LaserJet 2420 is its optional connectivity choices. For those interested in hooking up this printer with a workgroup consisting of a maximum of 12 members, different servers for both Ethernet and wireless networks are available for purchase through any HP authorized dealer.
One of the best things you will get when buying this printer is the HP guarantee for a year which enables you to connect with a local HP authorized service center. Plus, the software bundle comes with drivers and utilities which handle different aspects of the printer, such as toner cartridge status, and can operate with PCs as well as Macs.
The HP LaserJet 2420 has a lot to offer businesses, especially with if they need good quality printouts that are sharp and professional-looking.
