Small businesses looking for a relatively inexpensive inkjet printer with high quality and moderate speed, the HP Deskjet 890 is worth considering. Home users will also benefit from this machine. There are competitive printers and newer models with more technologically advanced features and functions; however, for a unit over 5 years old and for the price tag, the results are pretty impressive.
The black printer ink can reach a resolution of 600x600 dpi while producing as many as 9 pages per minute. The color HP 890 ink can knock out 5 pages per minute at a resolution of 300x300 dpi. These specifications put this printer in a middle-of-the-road kind of group. Nothing about it is mind-blowing, but it is definitely good enough for most standard printing needs.
HP ColorSmart software provides automatic enhancements to ensure the optimal results. The 890 has a very small memory and is compatible with most major operating systems. It can be connected via USB, parallel port or Jetdirect, which provides networking capabilities. The 890 has manual two-sided printing and status messages to let users know the progress of print jobs.
Two starter HP 890 ink cartridges come with this inkjet printer, one black and the other tricolor. The tricolor holds cyan, magenta and yellow printer ink. The black Deskjet 890 ink cartridge can yield 830 pages while the color tank only yields 620 pages. There are also high capacity options available. Using nozzles, the drop-on-demand technology applies tiny droplets of the HP 890 ink to whichever canvas is selected. The options are labels, transparencies, envelopes or specialty paper.
Weighing just over 14 pounds, the 890 is a bit bulky. It measures 17.5x15.6x8.9 inches, so it should be no problem to find an appropriate location in any workspace. Replacement Deskjet 890 ink is readily available online, and this unit is reliable and solid.
