Need an all-in-one inkjet unit for the home office that can print lab-quality photos? The HP Photosmart C4485 could be a great investment. Not only can it print, but it can copy and scan as well. For those looking for faxing features or high volume printing and copying, the C4485 may not suffice—it doesn't contain fax functions, and it only has a monthly duty cycle of 3,000 pages. It also doesn't offer wireless connection—only a USB port.
A black and a tricolor HP C4485 ink cartridge are needed for printing and copying, and a third photo cartridge is optional and can be purchased as well. These Photosmart C4485 ink tanks produce high resolutions—black ink can reach up to 1200x1200 dpi and color maxes out at 4800x1200 dpi. The inkjet copier has a resolution of 4800x4800 dpi using black or color HP C4485 ink. Copying and printing speeds with black printer ink are 20 pages per minute and with color are 18 pages per minute.
The biggest problem with this unit has to do with its low yielding Photosmart C4485 ink cartridges. The black only yields 200 pages, the color only yields 170 pages and the photo yields a mere 130 pages. Though that will get the job done for most home users, many users with more demanding printing needs will find these tanks to run out of ink much too quickly.
For those users, there are two options to save money. The first is buying high capacity tanks of the HP C4485 ink. The other is buying remanufactured ink tanks for only a fraction on the OEM price. These printer inks offer the same high quality and resolutions but don't put as much stress on checkbooks. The HP Photosmart C4485 will be a smart and economical buy for anyone needed a great at-home photo printer.
