Small businesses and home offices that are looking for a basic fax machine with a built-in phone and copier look no further than the HP Fax 1240. Not only is this inkjet unit versatile, but it is easy to use. Intended to provide an array of services for an affordable price, the 1240 rose to popularity about 5 years ago. It has been recognized for its decent speeds and solid quality, as well as the many features that this article will touch upon.
Starting with the copy feature, this unit can copy up to 17 pages per minute using only black HP 1240 ink. With the multi-colored printer ink, up to 12 copies per minute can be produced. It can zoom up to 200% and can make up to 100 copies from an original document. With the color Fax 1240 ink, a resolution of 1200 dpi can be reached, while the black can only obtain 600x300 dpi.
The fax machine has a transmission speed of 3 seconds per page. When using the color HP 1240 ink, it can reach a resolution of 200x200 dpi. The black beats that with a resolution of 300x300 dpi. It holds up to 100 speed dial numbers, and it provides a fax forwarding system, allowing users to forward faxes to their email or phone.
The 1240 has 8 MB of RAM and a 33.6 kbps modem. There is a 20-sheet automatic document feeder as well as a 100 page input tray and 52 page output tray. It contains two HP 1240 ink cartridges, one black and one tricolor, containing yellow, magenta and cyan printer ink. Unfortunately, these tanks have low page yields. The black Fax 1240 ink cartridge yields 520 pages, and the color can only last for 190 pages. Regardless, this inkjet device is a solid choice.
