Many homes have computers or laptops, but a lot of homes don't have printers. Even if one is not necessary, that doesn't mean it won't be a good addition to the home office area. The HP Deskjet 450 can offer the most basic of features for users who may not know too much about inkjet printers. It is small and sleek, with a few buttons and connection options; however, it is not capable of networking.
There are two different HP 450 ink cartridges within this unit, one containing only black printer ink, and the other has cyan, magenta and yellow. The color Deskjet 450 ink tank can yield 400 pages while the black can yield 520 pages. There is also an optional photo ink tank available that is exclusively for picture printing. It has a page yield of only 140 pages.
The 450 is Energy Star qualified, meaning it works to prevent polluting the environment. It is connected via parallel or USB port, and it also has an optional Bluetooth. It uses PhotoREt III for automatically enhancing images. When using the photo Deskjet 450 ink cartridge, it upgrades itself to PhotoREt IV. Matched with helpful software provided by the vendor, even the most technologically inept person will be able to use this device.
Using only black HP 450 ink, up to 9 pages per minute can be printed. The color speed is not too far behind, producing as many as 8 pages per minute using tricolor printer ink. These speeds are impressive considering this unit is approximately 10 years old and has since been discontinued.
With a monthly duty cycle of only 500 pages and low capacity HP 450 ink, this inkjet printer will only suffice for low to standard size printing jobs. All in all, it is reliable and attractive and will make a good fit in any home office.
