The HP OfficeJet Pro L7780 is a proper business inkjet printer. It's not cheap, but the HP OfficeJet Pro L7780's feature set and performance are really very good.

Anyone thinking the falling prices of laser printers meant the day of the inkjet was almost through would do well to look at the sturdy business-oriented printers PC Advisor has reviewed in recent times. Besides the rather different Ricoh (Ricoh Aficio GX3000 gel-based printer review), we've got this £364 heavyweight from inkjet king HP - the HP OfficeJet Pro L7780.

The HP OfficeJet Pro L7780 packs in some impressive features. Indeed, small-business users may be more interested in one of the cheaper models in this range. While the HP OfficeJet Pro L7780 covers everything, you can get the L7580 and L7680 for £234 and £288 respectively.

The HP OfficeJet Pro L7780 offers stronger paper handling than the cheaper models, and cleans up on connectivity options. While the L7580 and L7680 make do with ethernet and fax facilities, the HP OfficeJet Pro L7780 bolts on Wi-Fi access, making it perfect for the wireless office network. (All three printers can be upgraded to Bluetooth.) For many a business, normal wired network facilities are more than enough, but the HP OfficeJet Pro L7780 goes that little bit further.

The HP OfficeJet Pro L7780's memory card reader is very versatile, and has plenty of options for letting you select the right images in as little time as possible.
