The HP Color Copier 170 is a simple, one-function unit that produces satisfactory results at slow speeds. Its highest resolution of 600x600 dpi using color and black HP 170 ink creates adequate results. Due to slow printing rates and an input tray that can hold only 30 sheets, this copier is suitable for simple, personal or home use.
As mentioned, printing speeds for this copier are well below average, and that's one of the reasons it would not work well in a business or workplace. Black Color Copier 170 ink prints up to 11 copies per minute, while color can turn out only 8.5 copies per minute. Unfortunately, this copier's HP 170 ink resolution drops to 300x600 dpi whenever it prints at its maximum printing speeds, producing inferior results.
HP 170 ink cartridges come in black and tricolor. Cyan, magenta and yellow printer ink make up this unit's tricolor tanks. Each Color Copier 170 ink cartridge includes HP PhotoREt II technology, which produces graphic images with vibrant and crisp quality.
Features like digital image processing, its 256 shades of grayscaling and digital zoom from 25% to 400% improve the value of the 170. Also, other advanced features like the ability to copy poster documents, give this device more versatility and variety. Its ability to print on an assortment of other media like HP Premium Inkjet Paper, HP Photo Paper and labels gives users even more flexibility.
This inkjet copier's useful features and flexibility help make up for its slow printing speeds. A low monthly duty cycle capable of producing only small volume output rates is another reason the 170 works better in a home environment. Users who can be patient with the HP Color Copier 170's printing speeds and occasional low printer ink resolution may find this device to be a good purchase.
