The HP Deskjet 5652 is a fairly basic, compact inkjet printer, but it has a few extras like automatic duplexing and impressive print quality that set it above much of the competition, especially for such an affordable price. Its maximum print speeds are impressive, at up to 21 pages per minute for black and 15 pages per minute for color, but high-quality settings slow it down significantly. HP 5652 printer ink costs are average, with high-capacity versions available.
The 5652 sports the typical front-loading design of most Deskjet models, with an input paper capacity of up to 150 sheets. The U-bend paper path can be more prone to jams, but also makes the unit very compact. The machine measures only 5.7 inches high, with a footprint of 17.6x14.6 that will fit on most desktops. It will also be easy to unpack and set up, with a weight of only 11.7 pounds out of the box, without the Deskjet 5652 printer ink installed.
The front panel has a few more buttons than the typical inkjet model, with a button to select the print quality directly. Unfortunately, this must be enabled in the software first, which is a strange qualification. Nonetheless, some users might appreciate the extra control. Reviewers note its excellent output quality for both photos and text, and the two-sided printing option is great for saving paper.
Buyers can choose between the standard HP 5652 ink cartridges for the lowest purchase price, or high-capacity versions that are more cost-effective, with double the page yield. An optional photo Deskjet 5652 ink cartridge can replace the black supply for higher-quality photos, utilizing 6 colors.
Overall, the 5652 has an impressive mix of speed and output quality, though its high-resolution modes slow things down a bit. Users will generally find it worth the wait, and operating costs are fairly low, thanks to high-capacity HP 5652 ink options.
