The HP Deskjet 970 is a single-purpose inkjet printer with high quality and average speeds. This unit is designed for home offices or very small businesses, even though it lacks networking capabilities. It is compatible with Windows and Mac, as well as most other operating systems. Using the tricolor HP 970 ink, about 2 pages can be printed a minute. Using black printer ink, up to 12 pages can be produced per minute. A 4x6 inch color photo takes about a minute to print.
The average resolution is 600x600 dpi using either Deskjet 970 ink cartridge. However, the color ink seems to run out faster than the black. The reason for this is that if one color is empty, the entire color HP 970 ink cartridge will have to be replaced. This can start to get pricey, especially if this printer is used for heavy duty print jobs.
Any person looking for a machine that will provide convenience and good results will find the 970 to be a good fit for a low price. There are two tanks of Deskjet 970 ink, and each is accompanied by nozzles that dispense the printer ink onto the page. This technology is called drop-on-demand and is common in inkjet printers.
This machine has a monthly duty cycle of 5,000 pages. If it is used to the fullest capacity, the HP 970 ink will need to be replaced multiple times a month. Third party ink tanks are available for half the price of OEM items. There are also remanufactured options available, and these are guaranteed to maintain the same quality.
The Deskjet 970 can print on various types of paper and is able to connect to PCs either by parallel interface or USB port. These features make this printer versatile and worth every penny.
