Wow…Is That Really an Inkjet?

By Marlene Orr, Senior Analyst, Printers/A4 MFP, March 20, 2013

Historically, inkjets have been slower than laser devices, and although high-capacity cartridges were available for business-class inkjets, the yields were generally lower than those available for business-class laser machines. Of course, the inkjets cost less and many offered a comparable cost per page, making them a good choice for low-volume environments. But those slower speeds and relatively low yield cartridges didn’t make them a good fit for higher-volume business environments. Until now, that is.

Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) has long been a fixture in the home and in the office with its inkjet technology, but the new Officejet Pro X series products turns the idea of inkjet printing on its head. With rated speeds topping out at 70 ppm (42 ppm in default mode), combined with a high duty cycle (75,000 pages per month) and ink cartridges that yield more than 5,000 pages each, the Officejet Pro X576 MFP and X551 printer look like true competitors for laser devices at these higher values. Here’s a peek at some of the first test results coming out of the lab on these models and how they compare with laser models.

BLI Unearths a Softer Side to Eco-Friendly Printing

By Lisa Reider, BLI Senior Product Editor, Scanners and Environmental

Whether through buying ENERGY STAR-qualified electronics or more fuel-efficient vehicles, the effects of climate change have many people changing their day-to-day activities. And the trend continues to spread despite economic constraints. But in addition to checking for eco-labels and reading BLI Environmental Test Reports to identify the most energy-efficient printers and MFPs, users can also change their printing habits for the better by using eco-friendly printing solutions.

While for years we’ve reported on the many environmentally friendly features available with document imaging devices, such as toner-save mode, blank-page removal, auto color mode and N-up printing and copying, there are also several solutions available that help to optimize printing habits to reduce waste and save money—some of them for free. Eco-friendly print solutions offer various tools dedicated to three basic functions: Web printing, document printing and usage monitoring. Some solutions may do all three, while others might focus on a single task. We took a look at offerings from vendors such as Lexmark, Samsung, HP and Canon, as well as some third-party offerings. Below is a breakdown of some of the more prominent eco-friendly print solutions available.
