HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn
The LaserJet Pro P1606dn offers nothing new in terms of design: it is designed in the open, typical design of the LaserJet series. The paper tray does not disappear completely in the device, but stands out easily. But it offers a high capacity with 260 sheets. An additional multipurpose feeder can also be used to print special media such as envelopes. The printer weighs around 7 pounds and measures 387 x 284 x 246 - the perfect size for smaller jobs.
The printing speed is also impressive: the LaserJet prints up to 25 pages per minute according to the manufacturer. He also masters the automatic, two-sided printing of a sheet (duplex printing). Speed is not what makes HP - but experience has shown that 12 pages / minute is a realistic value. The print resolution is at 600 x 600 dpi - a rather low value, but it should be sufficient to bring texts and simple graphics in good quality on paper. For photos, the LaserJet is probably only very limited.
The Pro P1606dn can be connected to a PC in two ways: in a classic way via a USB cable and wirelessly via integration in a LAN network. The device supports 10/100 Ethernet network technology. Even from smartphones or tablets, documents can be quickly and easily transferred to the LaserJet for printing - thanks to the free apps ePrint and AirPrint.
What we really like about the HP is the ability to save energy by using low power consumption in standby mode and HP Auto-On / Auto-Off technology, which automatically turns the printer on and off, saving operating costs.
HP offers the new LaserJet Pro P1606dn for an MSRP of 169, - Euro. This makes the device still one of the cheaper printers. Of course, cuts must be made in terms of print quality and the maximum monthly print volume, and the print costs per page tend to be slightly higher than for comparable models. The LaserJet features a high printing speed and automatic duplex printing, making it the ideal printer for workplaces in small to medium-sized offices or in the home office.
