The company celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Deskjet printer
Hewlett-Packard (HP) introduced three new
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.

How much is the ink? Around $200 if I calculate from the cost per page correctly. Nothing like printing through $200 in a little over an hour...

Anyone with a clue switched to laser years ago. Inkjets are not practical for office or home use anymore. The ink dries up too quickly and they fleece the consumers at every turn.

And if they had a clue they moved from HP. HP is well known as one of the most expensive cartridge manufacturers (barring maybe Xerox). Personally I go with a color laser by Brother. They are one of the few makers that actually include full capacity toner instead of 50 page demo pack. Plus their drivers are lighter weight than many others. I've had luck with others as well, but they are my current favorite.
