Deciding which printer will be the best for the home can be difficult as there are so many options on the market. It may help to rule out the machines that have unnecessary features and functions which will allow the remaining options to be limited to a specific type. An all-in-one device is only appropriate for users that plan on making copies or scanning documents to file. A monochrome laser unit will is designed to print quickly, but lacks color capabilities. The home may be better suited for a dedicated inkjet printer with color capabilities, such as the HP PhotoSmart P1215.
When only using black printer ink, up to 15 pages per minute can be produced, however when printing with all four colors of HP P1215 ink, up to 12 pages per minute can be printed. When it comes to quality, which is just as important as speed, if not more, the black-and-white documents will have a maximum resolution of 600x600 dpi. The color PhotoSmart P1215 ink can create a resolution of 1200x1200 dpi.
Page yield of the printer is an important feature to look at as it represents how often money will need to be spent on replacements. The tricolor HP P1215 ink cartridge can yield up to 450 pages and the black can render nearly 830 pages. Replacement PhotoSmart P1215 ink cartridges can be purchased from a number of online vendors, including the original manufacturer. However, for a more affordable option, third party vendors offer consumers compatible HP P1215 ink.
The monthly duty cycle is 5,000 prints and the built-in memory is 16 MB, which should both be more than enough for personal use. The input tray holds 120 sheets of standard paper as well as a number of specialty media. It can connect through USB or Parallel ports or users have the option of setting up a wireless connection.
