With the HP Deskjet D2545, you only get what you pay for. Available for under $100, this inkjet unit has the bare-minimum of functions. This excludes multifunction features like faxing, networking, and copying, which are necessary components for a workplace device. One unique feature, great for all consumers jumping on the "green revolution" band wagon, is that this printer is comprised of around 83% recycled plastic.
Although this device has a pretty high-quality color HPD2545 ink resolution of 4800x1200 dpi, its lack of camera card slots and LCD screen result in a low proficiency to print photographs. Using black HP Deskjet D2545 ink, printing speeds are fairly fast at 26 pages per minute and the resolution is an acceptable 600 dpi, making this unit more capable of producing simple text and graphic documents as opposed to photos.
Compared to this devices inexpensive initial price, its HP D2545 ink cartridges are pretty expensive to replace. HP Deskjet D2545 ink cartridges last only 200 pages for black printer ink and 165 pages for color, which is one feature that makes this inkjet unit a better fit for lower-volume output users. Its small paper input tray of only 80 sheets, even smaller output tray of 20-sheets, compact size and light weight of 6 pounds are also reasons this unit is more appropriate for home or personal use.
Although tanks of HP D2545 ink are made of 75% recycled plastic, their high price may have consumers spending more than desired on replacements. The HP D2545's cheap cost provides users only standard functions like average printing speeds and a satisfactory printer ink resolution. For consumers only interested in a machine that can perform simple tasks with suitable quality, the HP D2545 is a good, cost efficient choice.
