HP Deskjet 1000 - Miniature Assistant
We are all used to the fact that printers are bulky and noisy equipment that barely fits on the desktop. Your perception of these devices will change forever when you become familiar with the HP Deskjet 1000, the miraculous exception to the rule.
Buying budget office equipment can always be risky. Saving on the equipment of your workplace, you risk further lose in quality and speed of printing, increase the costs associated with the maintenance of devices. And if you are still willing to take a chance, then it is better to turn your attention to the Deskjet 1000 printer from HP.This company representative is the most compact device. Dimensions (421 x 266 x 380 mm) allow it to be placed even on the system unit. But small size is not its main advantage. The HP Deskjet 1000 printer has become popular due to its price, which on average is less than 1,000 rubles.
There is a popular belief that the lower the cost of production, the worse its quality, reliability and durability.Indeed, the device will not be able to work for a long time and regularly in a large company or with a large volume of documents. It is purchased for home, small businesses and enterprises. Here it will be able to unleash its full potential.
In the role of the closest competitors of the HP Deskjet 1000 printer are its own "brothers" - models 2000 and 3000 series. The devices differ from the HP 1000 in only a few details:
- The HP 2000 has a small monochrome display and a push-button control panel;
- HP 3000 has a module for wireless connection to a PC (Wi-Fi), as well as a more modern and stylish office design.
However, these differences can hardly explain such a big difference in price. If the cost of the Deskjet 2000 is an average of 1100-1300 rubles, then the HP 3000 will cost approximately 2000 p. Such a jump in prices can be explained by the fact that the presented model is not so popular in the market and few people have heard about it. If the HP Deskjet 1000 still somehow competes with its “brothers”, then there’s nothing to contend with a representative of the Japanese manufacturer Epson Stylus S22.
Compact size, stylish design, better print quality and high performance thanks to separate cartridges - all this Japanese engineers were able to realize in their offspring. Against such a set Deskjet 1000 can not oppose anything.Saves only the price - a model from the country of the Rising Sun is 1.5 times more expensive.
Think a few times before deciding to save your budget on acquiring this miniature assistant. What kind of printer does the HP Deskjet 1000 get? Users say that consumables have a small resource. Black and white ink is only enough for 120 A4 documents, and color - only 100 copies. As a result, the cost of one sheet in black and white will be at least 5 rubles, which is very expensive. To save money, you can purchase cartridges with an increased volume of HP 122XL. Then the cost of printing will be reduced by 25%. This is really beneficial, especially if you are not using color ink. The manufacturer is specifically silent that if any pigment runs out in the “donors” (tanks with paint), then the whole cartridge will have to be replaced.
What is he at work?
The advantage of the device can be called ease of operation. To connect the HP Deskjet 1000 printer to your PC, you will not need instructions for use and configuration. After connecting the USB cable to the computer, automatic search and installation of drivers begins.No additional action is required.The quality of the color and black-and-white copies obtained is not satisfactory. Somewhat saddens printing time. It varies depending on the type of document, its resolution and can be up to 5 minutes. But this, taking into account the high definition of the obtained images and low cost, is not critical. The printer will be able to meet the needs of "home users" and small businesses.
