Anyone in need of a single-purpose color printer with an optional wireless connection need not look any further than the HP Deskjet 5650. This unit has everything necessary for basic text and photo printing, and will complete the puzzle for any home office. Small and large businesses may want to look elsewhere, however, for no other reason than the lack of functions. Most work environments prefer multi-purpose units that have copying, scanning and faxing all in one machine.
The two standard HP 5650 ink cartridges are black and tri-color and can only yield 520 and 400 pages, respectively. There is an additional printer ink tank available for this unit that focuses solely on photos. To use it, the black Deskjet 5650 ink cartridge must be removed and the photo ink installed.
The black HP 5650 ink can reach a maximum resolution of 1200 dpi with print speeds up to 21 pages per minute. The color printer ink can bang out 15 pages per minute at a resolution of 4800 dpi. These numbers are impressive and can compete with most other inkjet printers on the market in the same price range. The Deskjet 5650 ink can adhere to various types and sizes of paper, and can print on both sides of the paper using the automatic duplexer.
An 8 MB of memory comes standard and unfortunately cannot be upgraded. The HP 5650 is compatible with most major operating systems and features a USB port which will suffice for most home users. Weighing just over 11 pounds, this unit is easy to move and store. It measures 17.7x14.6x5.7 inches, making it a little bulky but still compact enough to fit on any desk or table space.
Replacement HP 5650 ink is affordable, and with a 3,000 page monthly duty cycle, this reliable inkjet printer doesn't require much maintenance. The HP Deskjet 5650 is a homerun in any ballpark.
