A Product Overview Of The HP 2500 LaserJet Printer

by erin on October 6, 2010

The laser type of printer known as HP Color LaserJet 2500 Printer has a toner system that uses 4 colors. Operating this office equipment is easy, but without compromising professional-looking output. Expansion is never a problem so it can grow with your changing productivity demands. Hewlett Packard also enhanced the 2500 with the HP LaserJet 2500l toner to produce dazzling colors.

It weighs 47.5 pounds with all the supplies attached to the unit, and it measures 18.9″ x 17.7″ x 12.8″ (width x depth x height). Inside this body is a 300 MHz processor that sets the maximum duty cycle to 30000 impressions a month. Although there’s a standard 64 MB of RAM installed, this can be expanded to as large as 256 MB. That’s because of the two SDRAM DIMM 100-pin slots incorporated into the printer’s body.

As much as 16 black and white pages can be churned out every minute. For colored printing, that’s equivalent to 4 pages a minute. Carry out your tasks right away as the first page is out in about 16 seconds for black and white tasks, or 29 seconds for colored ones. A combined total of 875 sheets of input media capacity makes this machine suitable for producing the day-to-day printout requirements of a business or an office.

This laser printer has 3 paper tray inputs which can work on a variety of media sizes. The first tray supports sizes from as little as 3″ x 5″ to as large as 8.5″ x 14″. Those anywhere from 5.8″ x 8.3″ to 8.5″ x 14″ can be handled by the second tray. The third tray, on the other hand, can hold a media size of 8.5″ x 14″ only. When it comes to media types handled, the 2500 is very flexible. It can support anything from plain bond paper, recycled, cards, envelopes and labels.

Ensuring details that are crisp and colors that are true-to-life is a print resolution of 600 dpi x 600 dpi (dots per inch). Aside from that, there is also HP’s very own Image REt 2400, or Image Resolution Enhancement technology. This innovation precisely blends the available colors in the cartridge (magenta, yellow, cyan and black) in order to come up with dazzling colors. Likewise, it yields excellent results without causing the unit to slow down.

Hooking up the 2500 to a computer is hassle-free, thanks to the available connectivity options. There’s a USB 1.1 port and the parallel IEEE 1284-B port for such task. However, there’s a disadvantage: the two cannot be used at the same time. An available input/output EIO slot can be used for installing JetDirect technology (sold separately). This technology enables you to directly attach the unit to a network. Additionally, a manual duplex printing is present, complete with drive support.

PostScript 3, HP PCL 5c and HP PCL 6 are the language emulations included. This laser printer also includes a variety of typefaces such as 45 TrueType fonts, 1 Line Printer font and 35 PostScript fonts. Font scaling technologies such as TrueType and Intellifont are installed. One great thing about this machine is it’s so simple to use. In fact, a single door is all it takes to access as much as 5 easy-to-use printing supplies.

So if growth is foreseen in an office or business setup, the HP Color LaserJet 2500 Printer can be considered a sound investment. Increasing productivity needs can be easily met as there’s enough room for expansion. Its high quality HP toner cartridges and innovative features allow for printouts with professional quality.
