Let us see if my new purchased printer make money or act as a liability to me. Today I have purchased an All in One printer. It can print , copy and scan. The model is manufactured by HP. The model number is 5820. Earlier in 2016 I have bought the Epson L 365 model which is giving me a lot. and today the new printer order has been placed on amazon.in to support the print at a new location other than the existing printer which is located some where in Kolkata and helps a 50 pupil to make their project print ready. They use the printer as a shared printer and enjoy the print service as a own printer service. The printing cost is as low as 75 per page and they enjoy the service of print like Sealdah or Jadavpur market.
The new hp printer will serve a new place of Murshidabad district and it will be asset definitely. The features of the hp printer is like :
It can print the color , black and white with manual both side print and at speed of 15- 20 pages per minute. The color takes a fer second more depending on the quality of the print. Single side print is more faster than the both side print as the turning is t be done manually.
It can scan upto 1200dpi and maximum tray size is little more than A4 you can adjust it to A4 ad the tme of installation or can set them when scanning. It scan faster and the scanning ability is good due to the advanced and easy features of it to scan.
The printer can copy both black and color copy instantly with its one touch button specified for copy work. There is a facility to copy multiple by pressing the copy button multiple times at the time of giving instruction.
Connectivity : The printer can be connected via usb cable and also via wifi or via mobile hot spot creation. The printer can be accessed remotely over internet protocol this cloud printing service can be connected via google cloud printing service to make it accessible over the internet. It works both on Internet Protocol version 4 (ipv4) and or Internet Protocol Version 6 (ipv6) and vpn. You can use hp printing app or other app to send printing instruction and it is configurable so that you can select which email id can be used to send the print instruction .Thus security of printer is not so easy to to tamper.
The main benefit of this type of printer is the cost effective. The ink tank is easy to refill and the 4 color ink tank can contain 70 – 100 ml of in each and can print up to 8000 color page in total and the 5000 pages for black only. Though this is the proposed data it gives you the 90% accuracy of pages number which can be printed by the original ink bottle.
It is recommended to use original ink as this keeps the ink and the print quality good and do not void the printer warranty. Do not use the compatible ink or local ink because this may damage the printing head and the cost of printing head is more costlier than the savings on the local ink. Besides the composition of the local ink may clot the the ink pigments when they are mixed with each other. Just like blood transfusion to non group may cause blood coagulation in the body and thus die of human being. Most of the printer gets the printing head dead as because of the ink quality used to print.
Cost of print: The average per page print cost is the 8 paisa to 10 paisa for black print and for color it is 18-to 20 paisa. As of now in India, after GST, it has increased to 25% higher. So actual price is 15 paisa to 25 paisa per page. That is pretty much cheaper. Those who use bulk ink purchase may reduce it to up to 5 paisa less than the estimated. But I personally suggest not to buy ink in bulk. Because the long days ink is highly prone to coagulate and thus the benefit reverses into loss, when you buy the product pleas use the manufacture date and the expiry.
How it is asset to me?
Yea, this printer cost me very less with the comparison to the available ink advantage cartridge or the ink cartridge. This cost around 5 INR to 8 INR. It is 80 to 100 time than that of the cost of cartridge type printer. The main business trick of hp is ink cartridge there not the printer. After advanced ink tank printer appeared by Epson in India 5-6 years back this type of continuous ink supply system hp also started making this kind of ink tank printer and try to recover its ground of printing in India. Before it has grown the filed is already availed by epson . Most small business proprietor uses this Epson rather using hp Just because of following cause
- Cost of printer is less so initial investment is small
- Printing cost is bit lower with respect to epson
- Printing speed is higher in Epson than that of hp of similar price model
The only good advantage of hp is Its Print Quality. It is Better than Epson. I am giving the link to tally the printer price and the comparison of them in the following link:
