Want a printer that users and experts alike agree is a quality product? Check out anything from the Photosmart model line, and more specifically, look into the HP Photosmart C5550. This is an all-in-one machine that offers more than simple printing. It can copy and scan too, and it is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems. Have an array of different needs? This multi-functioning device can meet almost any need, supporting plain paper, legal paper, envelopes, cards, transparencies and photo paper. It also has the ability to print directly onto CDs and DVDs, which is a unique feature. Great for printing photos, this thermal inkjet device creates high resolutions print after print. It has an affordable upfront price, and its HP C5550 ink is relatively inexpensive as well.
Copying or printing, about 32 pages per minute can be produced using black HP C5550 ink. If color printer ink is used too, about 24 pages per minute can be created. Drop-on-demand technology creates high resolutions with black printer ink of 1200x1200 dpi, and the color Photosmart C5550 ink can reach resolutions of up to 4800x1200 dpi. The highest resolution available for the scanner is 4800x4800 dpi, although an enhanced resolution of 19200 dpi is possible.
Though black and tricolor Photosmart C5550 ink cartridges come standard, two optional tanks—photo color and photo gray—are also available for those who are serious about their photographs. Though these tanks cost more and yield fewer pages, they will make photos look flawless and perfect.
The HP C5550 ink may seem affordable, but it is important to understand that all the inkjet tanks have low page yields, meaning buyers may have to replace this inexpensive ink often. If that's the case, then buyers may find themselves spending a lot of money. The best way to avoid this is to buy remanufactured HP C5550 ink cartridges from third party vendors. These will still give users the same quality but will save a significant amount of money.
