The HP LaserJet CP3505 color laser printer is a solid machine with high capacity and a high monthly duty cycle that will fit well in medium to large office environments. It has a paper capacity of up to 850 sheets, meaning it will not need to be replenished often, unlike the HP 1500 toner printer. Its maximum monthly duty cycle of 65,000 sheets shows that it is ready to work, although the manufacturer recommends a monthly print volume of 1,500 to 5,000 pages.
While the HP CP3505 color laser printer's maximum resolution is 1200 x 600 dpi, much higher than personal printers like the HP 1600 toner printer, it includes ImageREt technology, which simulates higher resolutions and results in sharper prints. Print quality is excellent, with sharp text and good graphics quality. Print speeds are about average, at 22 pages per minute, but the first page out time of 12.5 seconds is very good, resulting in print jobs starting to print faster than other models, saving time.
The unit comes in multiple configurations. The base model is the CP3505, the CP3505n includes networking, the CP3505DN adds duplexing, and the CP3505X adds extra paper capacity.
HP LaserJet CP3505 toner cartridges have a page yield that's good for medium to large office environments. Each black printer toner cartridge has a 6,000 page capacity, and each color laser toner cartridge has a 4,000 page capacity, very similar to the popular HP 3600 toner. Changing the HP CP3505 toner cartridges is as easy as opening the front panel, sliding the old HP LaserJet toner cartridge out and sliding the new cartridge in. Gone are the days when changing cartridges was a confusing multi-step process.
The unit includes a built-in ethernet port and can even be upgraded to Gigabit ethernet with an optional adapter if necessary. It includes a USB 2.0 port for direct connection to a PC. The unit also includes 'Toolbox' software for managing the machine remotely, allowing users to manage print jobs and change settings from any computer on the network, if desired. This is an especially handy feature in a large office, as users can check the status of the machine without making a long trip across the office floor. Unfortuantely, this functionality is not available on other HP printers like the HP 2840 toner printer.
Overall, the HP LaserJet CP3505 is a solid workhorse with great reliability and all the necessary features for a busy office environment. Its print speed is average, but the print quality and connectivity features make up for the slower speed. It makes a good choice for most users and in most work environments.
