Most offices are looking for printers that also serve as fax machines, scanners and copiers. Home users do not usually need these things, but simply want a printer that is reliable and affordable. The HP Deskjet 855 is definitely the latter. Nearly a teenager, this inkjet unit was born in the late 90s, and years of new technology have made it virtually irrelevant. However, for consumers with a tight budget and minimal printing demands, the 855 is a reasonable option.
Speed is not a bright spot for the 855. When printing with color HP 855 ink, only 3 pages per minute can be produced. Using black Deskjet 855 ink, it can knock out up to 6 pages in a minute. Patience is a virtue, and will be needed, especially when printing a large document. While waiting for the job to be finished, status updates will show up on the PC to inform users how close the light at the end of the tunnel is.
The two HP 855 ink cartridges consist of black, cyan, magenta and yellow printer ink and can produce maximum resolutions of 600 dpi. The drop-on-demand technology uses nozzles to eject printer ink in small dots. The HP ColorSmart driver layers and automatically enhances the image to make sure it is true to the original. The page yields of the Deskjet 855 ink cartridges are average and with normal-volume printing, those tanks will last for a while.
When it does come time to replace the HP 855 ink tanks, there are hundreds of vendors online with good deals and alternative options, such as remanufactured or compatible tanks. Matched with the low cost of the printer itself, the 855 can accommodate almost any budget. This may not be the best looking or most efficient inkjet printer on the market, but it is reliable and affordable.
