Hewlett Packard is a company that has been manufacturing computers and accessories for many years. They are a leader in the computer and printing technology arena. For those interesting knowing a little more about one of its printers, this article will give a brief synopsis of the HP Deskjet F380.
First off, the F380 is an HP All in one printer, meaning that it comes equipped with a scanner, printer and copying capabilities. Printers of this variety can scan images to a computer, print like a typical printer and make black and white or color copies.
The HP Deskjet F380 can print up to 20ppm (pages per minute) black and white documents and 14ppm for color. Resolution is about 4800 by 1200 dpi for color and black and white prints. The printer incorporates real life technologies with adaptive lighting features and auto red-eye removal when printing photos. It can also generate border-less prints up to 4 by 6 inches in size. Sorry, direct photo printing is not supported meaning you must have a computer to print pics.
The scanner resolution can get pictures and other images onto your computer in 1200 optical dpi and up to 19200 dpi with the enhanced settings. Copies on the F380 can be scaled up to 200% of original size and the device can generate up to 9 copies. It cannot be networked meaning no wireless printing and the overall weight is about 10 pounds. Supported paper formats include letter, legal, executive, cards, and A2, sorry no A3.
Overall the HP Deskjet F380 is a good starter printer or adequate for the handout king. If you are looking for something with a bit more functionality such as wireless networking capabilities or less popular paper formats you will want to look elsewhere. The F380 is supported on Windows 98, 98 SE, 2000, Me, XP home and professional as well as Mac OS X v 10.3.9 and 10.4. Go to Printershaven.com to buy or learn more about the F380.
