Our topic today is HP Officejet 7610 Wide Format e-All-in-One Printer. You can find its price is quite reasonable, it’s just $249.99 but this is a full-featured all-in-one which can print tabloid pages (11″ x17″) as well as “supertabloid” sheets (13″ x 19″). It can help you scan, fax, or copy pages with wide format and it supports a various channels of mobile printing. These days, tabloid printers are usually preferential to normal letter-size printers because they allow you to print different types of documents. You can click here Wide Format Printers if you want to know more about tabloid printers. Moreover, this Officejet also supports the technology printer apps of HP.
This all-in-one supports PC-free printing features as well as mobile devices. You can visit here for more information: Mobile Printing Features – 2014”. GoogleCloud Print, Apple’s AirPrint, and Wi-Fi Direct are some of them. You can also print from and scan to your USB drives. Moreover, the printer apps of HP allow you to download and scan content from and to different cloud sites as well as online repositories. It is great that you can initiate these features from the Officejet’s touch screen. It is a 2.7″ screen and is very intuitive as well as easy to use. From this screen, you can change the configuration, print, scan, copy, edit your photos and access to the printer apps.
Not only this Officejet 7610 can print oversize pages, it also offers you a lot of productive and convenient features. They are features that any today’s modern all-in-one need to have. For example, this printer offers you an ADF (which means the document feeder which can automatically duplex pages). This, together with a print engine which can duplex automatically, can save you a lot of time when you need to print or scan multipage 2-side documents. But unfortunately, although it can scan oversize pages, this 7610 can not auto-duplex tabloid pages because the ADF can’t automatically turn those pages over.
Output Quality & Performance
About the speed, this HP may not be a good choice if your office is an environment which has high print volumes. This Officejet 7610 prints more slowly than other tabloid printers when it comes to business documents which have many graphics and images. But when it comes to printing photographs, this 7610 is a bit faster.
By the way, you will satisfy with the print quality. This HP higher-end printer gives you nice business documents and good-looking photos. It can also make quite accurate copies of papers which have decent quality. You can have your documents and images digitized without many difficulties when using the interface software of the scanner. It is good, because there are a lot of people who do not know how to correct scans.
This printer has one drawer which can store 250-sheet of papers. You may find a bit inconvenient because it only has 1 input source. You will need to unload, reconfigure the printer’s paper tray when you change the paper sizes. Other tabloid printers offer you 2 paper drawers as well as one override tray so that you can save your time as well as print specialty media (1-off envelopes, for example). Brother’s MFC-J6920 is one of them. Epson’s Expression Photo XP-950 Small-in-One is one model that supports tabloid sizes via only the override tray. This may be more convenient but it is hardly conducive when you need to print a number of oversize pages.
Cost Per Page (CPP)
It is sad to know that this Officejet 7610 has quite high CPPs. Monochrome pages run you around 5 cents per page, and color ones run around 14.9 cents (if you use cartridges with standard-yield). In case you use ink tanks with higher-yield, these numbers are 3.2 cents (monochrome pages) and 8.9 cents (color pages). I know they are not ideal numbers, but they are still acceptable. In case you need to print more than a few hundred pages/month, you should look for other printers out there with lower CPPs. If you need help, you can read these 2 articles “When a $150 Printer Can Cost You Thousands” and “How to Estimate a Printer’s Cost Per Page”. The first tells us how important CPPs are and the second gives us some tips to estimate the CPPs of a printer.
In general, this HP Officejet 7610 Wide Format e-All-in-One Printer can be a good choice among wide-format machines out there. If you don’t need to print so many pages/ month and don’t mind the high CPPs as well as the single one input source, this 7610 is a great choice.
