The HP Color LaserJet 8550 is a color laser printer designed for the high-volume small or medium office environment. Its bulky design may turn some away, but its high monthly duty cycle and large paper capacity make it a good choice for high volume needs.
The design of the HP LaserJet 8550 is tall and bulky, like the multi-function HP CM2320 toner printer. Its tall design and heavy weight will require a lot of space in an office, but its other features may make this a worthwhile tradeoff. Its gigantic input capacity of 1,100 sheets means it will rarely need to be replenished, and its monthly duty cycle of 60,000 pages per month shows that it can take on high-volume printing needs without breaking a sweat.
The HP LaserJet 8550 toner cartridges have quite a hefty capacity as well. The color HP 8550 toner cartridges have an 8,500 page yield and the black HP 8550 toner cartridges have a huge 17,000 page yield. With such a large page yield, the HP LaserJet 8550 toner cartridges can take whatever large jobs a small or medium high-volume office can put out.
The printer supports a wide variety of media types and sizes, including paper, transparencies, labels, and envelopes. It also features built-in automatic duplexing for printing on both sides of the paper. This feature saves paper costs and can make for a very economical printing solution. Also included is a built-in ethernet connection on the N model for connecting directly to a network. This allows the HP LaserJet 8550 to be quickly and easily shared across a network of computers, and allows networked users to remotely manage print jobs, view status, and change options right from their PCs.
Print quality is excellent, and while the focus is on high-quality text, the graphics and photo printing quality is not bad either. Print speeds are quite speedy, at 24 pages per minute black and 6 pages per minute in color.
Overall, the HP Color LaserJet 8550 is a real workhorse of a color laser printer. Assuming its large size is not a problem in your available space, its print quality, speed, affordable HP toner and high-volume duty cycle make it a worthy contender in a busy office environment.
