Small office users are increasingly turning to low-cost inkjet models such as the HP OfficeJet 9100 instead of pricier devices, as these multifunction devices can perform the same functions at a much lower price. More importantly, the cost of replacing HP 9100 ink is also lower, saving on recurring printer ink costs. The unit can scan, copy, fax, and print, and can perform a lot of tasks without any type of computer connection.
Saving users' time seems to be the goal of the 9100's design. It includes an automatic document feeder (ADF) that speeds up scanning, copying, and faxing functions equally. It allows multiple pages to be loaded and scanned at once, requiring less work from the user. There is also a "scan-once-print-many" feature that can make many copies of a single document without the need to constantly rescan, as the image is saved in memory. Automatic duplexing is supported for two-sided sheets as well, though it does slow down scanning speeds somewhat.
For an inkjet model, the price of printer ink is very affordable, and the OfficeJet 9100 ink system consists of 4 separate OfficeJet 9100 ink cartridges. This is important, because it means users don't have to replace all colors of HP 9100 ink at once. Instead, they replace only the HP 9100 ink cartridges that are empty, keeping waste to a minimum.
In a review of the HP 9100, ZDNet UK Editors gave it a 7.8 out of 10 rating. They praised its built-in internet and network support, and the fact that it doesn't require a computer for many functions. They thought its price was a bit high, and that its print quality was disappointing.
For a small office that needs a variety of functions but doesn't want the high cost of a larger business machine, the HP 9100 could be a good fit. It doesn't compromise features, but comes in at a much more affordable price.
