With a duty cycle of 3,000 pages, the HP Deskjet 5745 was built for the small office. It features borderless printing on photo papers up to 8.5x11 inches and a Deskjet 5745 ink back-up mode, so when one tank of printer ink is empty, the inkjet printer continues to print. There is also a low HP 5745 ink indicator that will alert users when the tanks are low and an auto-off feature that turns the inkjet unit off after 30 minutes of being idle.
A black and tricolor Deskjet 5745 ink cartridge are needed for standard prints. If photo printing is a necessity, a third HP 5745 ink cartridge is available as well. This tank of printer ink will give photo prints higher quality than the regular tanks; however, it is more expensive too. Using the black ink, a resolution as high as 1200x1200 dpi is possible. Color documents can print with a maximum resolution of 1200x1200 dpi as well.
Windows and Mac operating systems are both compatible with the 5745, and connection is offered via USB. Media types such as plain paper, greeting cards, envelopes, labels, photo paper, transparencies and index cards all have the capacity to be printed on, and US letter, legal envelope and index card sizes are all supported. For a printer that has few features and functions, it is quite versatile with all its printing possibilities.
The HP 5765 ink is somewhat pricey, which could be a major drawback for some. If hearts are set on the 5765, though, there is an alternative—using remanufactured ink tanks. Remanufactured ink tanks can be purchased from third party vendors at a fraction of the manufacturer's price. Although it seems that these much more affordable tanks would be less impressive, they actually offer the same great resolutions while saving users money.
