The HP Photosmart C5250 makes the perfect addition to the home office. Offering color thermal inkjet printing at fast speeds, this unit also delivers high quality. It offers printing, scanning and copying; however it does lack faxing features. For homes that have no need for faxing, the 5250 will suit needs just fine. USB connection comes standard, and the all in one supports Windows and Mac operating systems.
Printing at fast speeds of 32 pages per minute using black HP C5250 ink and 24 pages per minute using color printer ink, this inkjet unit won't slow anyone down. Only the black and color Photosmart C5250 ink cartridges are needed for printing and copying; however, two tanks of photo color and photo gray printer ink can be purchased for the highest quality photos.
These HP C5250 ink cartridges don't yield as much as competing models, though. The black yields 200 pages, the color yields 170 pages, the photo color yields 130 pages, and the photo gray yields only 80 pages. For those who do a lot of printing—or even anything close to the monthly duty cycle of 3,000 pages—these tanks will not go far. This could cause buyers to have to purchase replacement HP C5250 ink more often than they would like. The easiest way to save money on ink is to buy remanufactured versions from third party vendors.
Aside from printing with Photosmart C5250 ink, the other features are impressive as well. The flatbed scanner has a color depth of 48-bits, and it can scan documents with a resolution of up to 4800 dpi. The copier can create up to 50 copies from an original document, and this unit can support many types of memory cards, like Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro. Although it does lack a few features and luxuries many may expect in an all in one, what it does offer is quality prints time after time.
