The HP Deskjet 810C is a basic inkjet printer with good print quality but low output rates. It has USB and parallel connections, with networking option. Designed specifically for home users, any family will find text and photo printing at a quality that matches professional labs. For a higher-yielding ink printer with the same quality, check out the Phaser 8400 ink printer. The biggest issue with this unit is production speed. Using black HP 810C ink, it prints at 6.5 pages per minute and 1.4 per minute in color.
There are many paper options for the 810C, including letter, legal, executive, banner, A4, index cards, etc. It is compatible with Windows and Mac operation systems and houses USB and Parallel ports. With a built in RAM of 2 MB, the 810C is not prepared to handle heavy volume printing. However, for smaller jobs, this unit is efficient enough.
There are two HP 810C ink cartridges, one with only black printer ink, and the other with magenta, cyan and yellow. This 2 tank system is commonly found in older machines, while more modern printers have at least 4-6. With page yields of 500-620 pages, the Deskjet 810C ink cartridges can last for a while but are still low capacity. The HP 810C ink can produce a maximum resolution of 600 dpi. Colorsmart II and PhotoREt II both help increase the accuracy and color coordination.
The 1,000 page per month duty cycle tells the story of endurance and longevity. Though the quality of color and black prints is high, the low capacity capabilities really prevent this inkjet unit from performing up to modern day standards. Small businesses do not want to be forced to replace tanks of Deskjet 810C ink as frequently as this device requires.
Weighing 12 pounds and measuring 17.6x14x7.5 inches, the HP 810C can fit comfortably on most desks or small tables. It is relatively portable and quite simple to set up. It's not a bad printer, but for the printer ink cost and slow speeds, it is hard to justify this purchase.
