The HP CP1700 is a high quality inkjet photo printer that takes up a lot of space, but produces pictures that rival professional darkroom images. This oversized inkjet unit measures 26x8.4x22.3 fully loaded and weighs over 30 pounds. There are twin models with slight advantages. The CP1700d has a built-in automatic duplexer. The CP1700ps also has the duplexer as well as updated software for more efficient printing functions like auto enhancements and red eye reduction.
This unit can print up to 16 pages a minute using black HP CP1700 ink and up to 5.5 full color pages per minute, which is less than Brother LC65BK ink. It wins here though, with borderless 4x6 color photo printing that takes only a minute and a half. Compatible with Windows and Mac, this device is aimed at home users as well as business environments. Consumers with digital cameras now have a convenient photo lab right at home.
There are four separate HP CP1700 ink cartridges, including black, yellow, cyan and magenta, printing at a resolution of 1200x1200 dpi using the black printer ink and 2499x1200 dpi in color. The HP CP1700 ink cartridges have a page yield of 1750 pages, meaning it yields more than most, just not the HP 940XL Black ink. The high quality ink can adhere to many kinds of paper, envelopes, transparencies, labels, transfers and even greeting cards.
As well as having newer and stronger HP CP1700 ink, the monthly duty cycle of this unit is amazing at 5,000 pages. This definitely allows for high volume printing without fear of constantly running out of printer ink, unlike the Canon CLI-221M ink printer. Equipped with a USB 2.0 port, parallel port and infrared connection, the CP1700 is ready for anything. This is a solid text printer and an excellent photo printer, good for families with digital cameras or businesses with high capacity needs.
