Whether your small business is run from a home office or you have a cramped space you share with a colleague, you will need a high-volume compact printer that can handle a fair amount of work, without adding to your space worries. The HP LaserJet P3005 can achieve this for you. You may find that your business expands to a bigger space before you require an upgraded version.
At 35 pages a minute and a maximum count of 5,000 pages per month, this small printer is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The 48 MB memory is driven by a 400 MHz Motorola ColdFire V5 processor which accounts for the fast print speed from this model. Fortunately, the basic cartridge for this model can handle up to 6,500, which means you won’t find yourself changing cartridges very often. Print quality is high with a resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi and this model makes use of HP’s FastRes 1200 system. However, the paper sizes it can accommodate are limited.
This model can be plugged directly into your computer via USB or parallel port and speaks easily with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. In fact, this printer comes ready to work with Microsoft® Windows® 7. And when you are tired of plugging in your coworker’s flash stick full of documents to print, you can always add it to your network with an EIO card.
With a weight of only 35.7 pounds, this printer’s capabilities are disguised within its box-like shape. Still, it is light enough to handle on your own and the software is easy to install. The only reason not to choose this model for a micro office is that it does not print in color. This is also a good choice for a small home network with multiple users and printing needs.
