HP has always made efforts towards sustainability within their company but earlier this year the Imaging and Printing Group released the Deskjet D, the first inkjet printer from HP made from 50 percent recycled materials. It is done completely in black — which I like a lot — with a small HP logo on the lid.
The small, three button control panel is located on the top left of the machine. The one-touch buttons consist of: power, resume and cancel for easy operation.
The control panel also has two ink level lights that alert users when the ink needs to be replaced. Access the ink cartridges through the pull down panel to the right of the control panel. Underneath the removable panel resides the adjustable sheet input tray. Users can access the paper path through a pull out piece located on the back of the printer. The D does not come with a USB cable so users may want to keep the cable from their previous printer or will need to buy a new one.
For the printing novice, there is a start here guide that will walk users through removing packaging tape, plugging in the printer, turning on the printer, pulling out the tray extension, loading paper and installing the ink cartridges.
With the Deskjet D, there are no network options so just attach the USB cord not supplied and follow the onscreen instructions. But then again, I really need the extra space. Seriously, turn it on, load the correct paper and hit print. For users who want to do more with their printer, check out the HP Solution Center for photo projects, access to the toolbox and print settings, status updates, troubleshooting and links to other HP software downloaded Smart Web Printing, Photosmart Essentials.
The D has three display lights on the control panel to warn about dwindling or depleted supplies and the cancel button is very reactive; the print job is stopped almost immediately. The tray extension is labeled for additional help with loading media and when the D is not in use, feel free to fold up the tray for extra space on your desktop.
When printing black text documents in the general everyday printing mode normal , the D printed seven ppm on average with a first page out in about 16 seconds. When printing color documents in normal mode, the D printed five ppm on average with a first page out in about 18 seconds. I got an average of 15 ppm with a first page out in eight seconds when printing black text documents.
The color speeds were almost as good in draft mode; the D printed 13 ppm with a first page out in eight seconds. The D prints an 8. Even in draft mode, the text is pretty good albeit not as dark. No noticeable lines or funky printing in normal mode but I did notice a line pattern through one of my color bar graphs when printing in draft mode.
The color was good but not quite vibrant; same for the resolution. Good, not great. The D printed about documents and photos in various modes before the black ink tank ran out. HP does offer high yield ink tanks for the D if you plan on printing large amounts over a short period of time but the cartridges cost almost as much as the printer itself.
I did also want to point out that the D is fairly loud when printing in normal mode but much louder when printing in draft mode. What was also impressive was the small footprint, good text print quality, decent speed and extreme low cost.
This is exactly the kind of printer I would recommend to anyone that needs to occasionally print a paper or photo on a tight budget. Having said that, if you are currently printing large amounts — especially in color — or share your printer with a group of people, the D might not be the best option.
You will spend more on ink than the initial cost of the printer; it is inevitable. High yield cartridges are considerably more but you should get double the color prints and three times the black prints. Pros Good print quality text Made from recycled materials Low cost Cons Loud especially in draft mode Tri-color ink tank.
