For home users with low volume printing needs, the HP Photosmart C4342 has a lot to offer. Windows and Mac compatible, it can adapt to the home office no matter what operating system is used. Its dimensions of 7x16.8x10.2 inches makes a small footprint, and this inkjet unit can fit on nearly any sized desk without taking up very much room. Another plus is that it only weighs 10 pounds, which for an all in one, is very slim. Almost any media type is supported, including labels, plain paper, legal paper, cards, envelopes, transparency film and photo paper.
Easy to maintain, this little unit uses only two Photosmart C4342 ink cartridges. One contains black printer ink, while the other houses cyan, magenta and yellow ink. Printing with only black Photosmart C4342 ink, a resolution of 1200x1200 dpi can be obtained and with color 4800x1200 dpi can be reached. The black HP C4342 ink yields 200 pages, while the color yields 170 pages. The drop-on-demand inkjet system has a monthly duty cycle of up to 3,000 pages, which will fit the needs of the majority of homes.
Though only two tanks of printer ink are needed for printing and copying, a photo HP C4342 ink cartridge can be used for optimal photo printing. This tank is optional and only yields 130 pages, which means depending on usage, could need replaced often.
The great thing about these low-yielding HP C4342 ink tanks is that remanufactured versions are available. For a fraction of the price, these can be purchased while still yielding the same amount of pages and exerting the same resolutions. For those with high-volume printing needs or those who intend on printing photos often, this could be the only way of affordably owning this unit. For those with lower needs and capacities, though, this will be a great, inexpensive fit.
