HP has expanded its OfficeJet range of inkjet printers with two new models, the OfficeJet 6000 and the OfficeJet 7000 Wide Format.
The HP OfficeJet 7000 can print documents up to and above A3 size. It can produce up to 33ppm black-only pages and 32 colour pages per minute.
The OfficeJet 6000 A3 printer can produce up to 7ppm (pages per minute) when printing only in black and 6ppm in colour. However, in order to achieve this figure you must first switch on the printer, allow it to warm up and print a full page of colour, somewhat negating the claim.
HP has designed both inkjet models for use in the home office. HP Scalable Printing Technology is incorporated in both OfficeJets. This, claims HP, delivers the same results as laser printers but printing costs 40 percent less per page. HP also says the EnergyStar-compliant printers consume 40 percent less energy than other printers in their class.
Pages are made up of four individual inks, with separate cartridges for black, cyan, yellow and magenta.
Available now, the HP OfficeJet 6000 is priced at €99 (£84), while the HP Officejet 7000 Wide Format will be available from August and is expected to cost €249 (213)
