Hewlett-Packard India unveils world's fastest desktop printer
New Delhi: PC maker Hewlett-Packard India on Wednesday unveiled its latest range of Officejet Pro X 500 series printers, which the company claims is the world's fastest desktop printer.
"HP's Officejet Pro X 500 series is recognised as the world's fastest desktop printer by Guinness World Records," HP Printing Systems PPS Director Nitin Hiranandani told reporters here.
Powered by HP PageWide Technology, the company said HP's Officejet Pro X Series can deliver professional documents at up to 70 pages per minute in General Office mode. They deliver high-quality documents at up to twice the speed and half the cost of colour lasers, he added.
The HP Officejet Pro X series and the HP Officejet Pro 3610/3620 Black and White series broaden the firm's Inkjet portfolio for businesses in India, he said.
In 2012, India witnessed shipments of 3 million printers, as per IDC data, which included 1.2 million inkjet printers and 1.8 million laser printers. HP controls more than half of the market for both the printers in India, he said.
HP Officejet Pro 3610/3620 Black and White series offers laser-like quality and performance at very low running costs, comparable to laser toner refills, he said.
"Enterprise workgroups and SMBs have told us they require technologies to improve efficiency and reduce costs and that's exactly what these devices do," Hiranandani added.
HP Officejet Pro X will address the needs of work-teams with up to 15 users printing up to about 4,200 pages a month and the users can also print from virtually anywhere with the latest mobile printing technologies such as HP ePrint.
HP Officejet Pro 3610 Black and White uses up to 50 percent less energy than mono lasers and saves up to 40 percent energy with the schedule-on and schedule-off feature. They come with a 2-inch mono graphic display and can print at ISO speed up to 19 pages per minute.
The HP Officejet Pro X Series is priced in the range of Rs 31,499-50,499, while the Officejet Pro Black & White series is priced in the range of Rs 7,999-11,999.
