The HP PSC 950 ink printer is an AIO that costs approximately $400. The machine prints, scans, faxes, and copies documents. It is a compactly designed device that weighs around 20 lbs. It measures 17.8 x 10.7 x 14.1 in. This machine promises a print speed of 12 ppm for monochrome and 10 ppm for color prints. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. The input tray has a maximum capacity of 100 sheets. Connectivity is via a USB port.
The HP 950 ink cartridge AIO offers a maximum print resolution of 600 x 600 dpi for monochrome and 2400 x 1200 dpi for color. It supports the following media types - plain paper, photo paper, envelopes, index cards, and labels. The memory card reader supports CompactFlash, Smart Media and Sony Memory Stick. The HP 950 inkjet cartridge printer uses two ink cartridges, one HP 15 Black with a page yield of 500 pages and a HP 78 Tricolor with a page yield of 560 pages. For higher volume users, a Phaser 8560 might be more appropriate because of its 3,100 yielding Xerox 108R00726 ink.
The copy zoom function on the PSC 950 has a range of 25% - 400%, by contrast, the 950xi can enlarge a copy only to 300% of the original size. The latter model however offers duplexing, networking, and an additional input tray and is available via wholesale stores and commercial outlets. The flatbed scanner on the PSC 950 can scan up to A4 sheets; the integrated ReadIRIS software converts scanned documents to editable text. The faxing element includes automatic redial, walk-up faxing, confirmation reports and more. The digital copier can copy up to 99 copies from the original and it offers features such as fit to page, poster, clone, margin shift and mirror modes.
The HP PSC 950 inkjet printer has an average duty cycle of 2000 pages per month. Laser printers will be able to produce far more than that, so large-volume users should look at a machine that uses Canon PGI-35 ink. The 950 scores on cost, quality, and functionality and is a good machine for families that like to print their own photographs.
