To continue the success of Officejet Pro 8600 Plus, HP has just released one more brandnew line of business printers which are high-volume, can perform well as well as print great-looking photos and documents. These printers also deliver very low CPPs which help us save a lot of money. This product line has 3 models. At the price range $299.99, the Officejet Pro 8620 e-All-in-One is our topic today.
Differences between the Officejet 8620 and the Officejet 8610 (which is about $199.99):
The 3 models, in general, are similar together. But, of course, there are more good features when it comes to the later version. Office jet 8610 can print 199ppm – monochrome and 14.5ppm – color. The 8620 does a bit faster: 21ppm – monochrome and 16.5ppm – color. The 8620 offers a thirty-five ADF (automatic document feeder) while the 8610 offers a fifty-page one. Moreover, the touch screen of the 8620 is 4.3″, larger than the 8610’s which are just 2.7″. From this touch screen, you can easily configure your printer. NFC (also known as “touch-to-print” or the near-field communications) is also supported by the 8620. You can read more information about NFC as well as other similar mobile printing technology terms in this article: Mobile Printing Features – 2014.”)

In the same $299.99 price range, there are some other machines (in which there are several laser-class ones) —deliver monochrome CPPs of about over 2 cents/page and color CPPs will run around 2-5 cents more than our 8620.
