The all in one has a 100 sheet input tray, and it can even hold 10 envelopes. With its lightweight, small size and monthly duty cycle of 1,000 pages, it will be the perfect addition to any home office. For larger offices, a Phaser 8560 with high-yielding Xerox 108R00726 ink.
One black and one color Photosmart C4274 ink cartridge come standard when the unit is purchased. Other units have cartridges for each color, such as HP 940XL Cyan ink. While the two C4274 printer ink tanks must be used for printing, a third HP C4272 ink cartridge can be purchased as well - this is an optional photo tank. In order to use this, the black printer ink must be removed. The only problem with this photo ink tank is that it only yields 130 pages, meaning if there is a need to print photos often, ink could become very expensive.
The black HP C4272 ink prints and copies about 30 pages per minute and will produce resolutions of 1200 dpi. The color can only print or copy 170 pages per minute with resolutions of 4800x1200 dpi. The pages yields are low as well, though. The black yields 200 pages, while the tricolor yields 170 pages.
Though the HP C4272 ink is relatively inexpensive, the cost per page is a little pricier than other models on the market. The best way to avoid the high costs of printing with this inkjet unit is to buy remanufactured ink from a third party vendor. Offering the same high quality for a portion of what OEM ink costs, it is definitely the best way to buy Photosmart C4272 ink tanks. With these remanufactured versions and the low upfront cost of the HP C4272, it will be an affordable, hard working all in one.
