The HP Color LaserJet CP4005n Printer Will Amaze

by erin on February 11, 2010

The HP Color LaserJet CP4005n printer is another in a line of 4000 series printers that delivers notable performance combined with exceptional durability. To handle the needs of most any-size work team as well as getting that same work team outstanding color printing capabilities. It’s not an inexpensive machine but neither is it actually very expensive, relatively speaking.

Print speeds with the 4005n is excellent in both black and white and color, with the printer able to deliver up to 25 pages per minute in color while exceeding that mark by five pages per minute when it comes to black and white. For a workgroup or work team needing access to speedy print ability for complex tasks, it’ll be hard to find a printer in this price range that could do much better.

The printer seems to be designed to deliver the maximum number of copies possible in the shortest amount of time. From the time the printer is tasked with a print job until the time the first sheet of print product emerges is only around 12 seconds. Each sheet will also emerge looking more than acceptable because of the machine’s 600 by 600 dpi resolution, which is par for the course for a workgroup printer of this characteristic.

The machine is sure to please most any IT specialist with its easygoing nature, as well. It can be joined up to a new or existing work team’s router/server hardware via means of either a USB or an Ethernet 10/100 port. There’s no wireless capability, but that doesn’t seem to be the niche that Hewlett-Packard designed this particular printer to fit into. At any rate, hookups will usually go off without a hitch.

Supplied memory is fine, with 128MB of RAM onboard and ready to go. It can be increased up 512MB if needed, though it’ll most likely be the case that most workgroups will be just fine with memory available as it is. Everything in terms of handling incoming and outgoing print assignments is handled via a well-working 533MHz microprocessor, meaning the printer should be able to handle multiple tasks with ease and speed.

The 4005n has been designed to be able to handle around 600 sheets of paper, with up to 1100 of storage available when all optional and standard paper trays are used. The variety of paper and other media materials that can be handled is excellent, with envelopes, transparencies, labels and even high-gloss paper taken care of with ease.

Monthly duty cycle when it comes to the 4005n is notable for its high number — especially given the relative inexpensiveness of the printer — coming in at 80,000 pages per month. The higher the duty cycle number, the lower the frequency of required maintenance activities that’ll be needed. HP says it can print between 2,000 and 6,000 pages per month before needing even the slightest amount of very minor maintenance as well.

In all, the HP Color LaserJet CP4005n printer comes to a work team at a nice price (currently it can be found for between $920.00 and $1600.00) and with many versatile features and functions. It can run off of many different operating systems (both Windows and Mac-based), including Windows Server 2003 and MacOS X 10.2 and XP Professional. The printer seems able to do most things well and nothing very poorly at all. Just make sure to stay stocked on toner.  HP toner is found easily online.  Any search for HP Color LaserJet CP4005n toner should produce good results.
