HP Officejet Pro X inkjet printer sets world record eats trees in

first_imgTypically, if you need fast printing you opt for a laser printer. But then if you need to produce color pages as well, the cost for a color laser printer skyrockets. It’s actually cheaper in a lot of cases to buy a laser and an inkjet printer to sit side-by-side, depending on your color page needs.HP may have solved the problem though, and set a world record in the process by developing the Officejet Pro X inkjet printer.It is being touted as the world’s fastest desktop printer and is capable of printing up to 70 pages per minute. It’s so fast HP holds the world record, as verified by Guinness World Records, for fastest time to print 500 sheets by an office color desktop printer. It was set using the HP Officejet Pro X576dw and X551dw back in April, and stands to this day.In order to print that fast using inkjet technology, HP had to go about printing in a slightly different way. Using its PageWide Technology, the printer head doesn’t actually move. Instead, HP applies four colors of ink at one time on to a moving sheet of paper while keeping the head stationary.Not only is this method fast, it’s also very efficient. HP says the Pro X uses 50 percent less energy than a typical business class laser printer, while at the same time producing half the waste. You can also save paper as every Pro X printer is capable of two-sided printing as standard.The HP Officejet Pro X range is available now with prices starting from $649.99.last_img
