£486 HP Officejet Pro X551DW printer

Check out the HP Officejet Pro X551 DW printer if you want to print full A4 pages in less than one second. It is available for a mere £486 from Insight, a fraction of what a laser printer with similar churn-out speeds would cost.

This workgroup inkjet printer – which is the printer-only version of the X576DW MFP - can churn out up to 70 pages per minutes regardless of whether it is a black or colour print.

Although that’s on draft, it should be good enough for most usage. Up the resolution and the X551 DW will “only” manage 42 pages per minutes which is still up there with the fastest colour laser printers on the market.

This HP printer blows away laser printers when it comes to printing speeds because it is based on the company’s PageWide technology which, as its name implies, has a print head as wide as the page it is supposed to print on.

As for its features, it comes with full auto duplex, Wi-Fi, USB, AirPrint, Ethernet and a processor clocked at 800MHz. There’s also 512MB of RAM, a 500 sheet input tray and a 50-sheet multi-purpose tray.

Check out the review of the HP Officejet Pro X551 DW and find out why we say that it “beats the competition in its price range on speed, output quality, paper handling, and cost per page.”
