The company celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Deskjet printer

Hewlett-Packard (HP) introduced three new desktop printers today, including the world's fastest to date -- all in time for the company's 25th anniversary of the Deskjet printer.

HP's three latest additions to the printer lineup are the HP Officejet Pro X, the HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer and the HP Officejet Pro 276dw Multifunction Printer.

The HP Officejet Pro X, which is designed for small and medium-sized businesses, is recognized as the world's fastest printer by Guinness World Records. It performs at twice the speed and half the cost of laser printers, delivering professional documents at as many as 70 pages per minute. It can print quickly and quietly by printing four colors of ink onto a sheet of paper at one time while the printhead stays in a stationary position.

The Officejet Pro X is also Energy Star qualified, using up to 50 percent less energy than laser printers.

Those interested in an Officejet Pro X can pick one up starting today. The single-function models start at $449 while the multi-function models start at $649.

The HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer and the HP Officejet Pro 276dw Multifunction Printer are more for medium-sized businesses that want enterprise manageability solutions like HP Universal Print Drivers and HP Web Jetadmin. It also prints documents for up to 50 percent lower cost per page than laser printers.

These two models have not been priced yet, and will be available this spring.

Now is a particularly special time for HP, as it celebrates it 25th anniversary of the Deskjet printer. The first one was released in February 1988 for $995, and had a speed of 2 pages per minute.

OK, I am blind, up to 70ppm... damn that is fast. Seeing as how I print probably about 10 pages per year, its overkill for me though. LOL. My biggest problem is ink drying up before I use it.

This tech was demoed many years ago, if it is what I think it is. It basically is a printhead the size of the width of the paper.

On the consumable front, it sucks to my Kyocera color laser no matter what :)

I got so tired having to buy new cartridges each time I want to print I went paperless.

Now I pdf anything needing a sig and paste a scan of my signature into it. They can print it out if they really need paper.

Same here, I occasionally use my printer but the vast majority of the time I just edit the pdf and send it. I've also go an online fax machine, I hate that I'm paying for it, but I have used it many times and it has easily paid for itself. It's amazing how many places refuse emailed copies of documents but will gladly accept faxes without question.

It's because a fax is considered a legal document and because the transaction can be confirmed while email cannot.

Faxes are also considered more secure since it's harder to intercept/alter the signal during transmission.

Emails certainly are legal documents.

Not in the same sense as a fax.

For example, if my tenant signs a lease and email it to me, I sign it, that does not mean it's legally binding.

If they were to fax it, then it would be.

Faxes use a point to point protocol that is very hard to tamper with. Additionally, the cover page and at the bottom of each page there's that bit of info on the bottom line that provides authentication.

Now some institutions will accept digitally signed and encrypted emails. If it comes from a verifiable source. however most companies will not accept emails, because they cannot trust that it has not been tampered with. They just don't want to open themselves to the liability.

Even virtual faxes emulate the point to point transmission so those are accepted by most as same as.

Of course depending on where you live that may differ on what is and isn't legally binding, but in the US while a lot of places may accept emails, even more will not. Some institutions are even stricter than that and will not accept faxed documents.
