The Officejet Pro X551dw Wireless Color Inkjet Printer from HP is a notably speedy inkjet printer with HP's PageWide technology and pigmented inks, resulting in fast print speeds and cost savings of up to 50% per page when compared to color laser printers. This PageWide Technology utilizes a stationary print bar that spans the width of a page to print documents in a single pass, making it capable of color print speeds of up to 42 ppm in ISO testing, or up to 55 ppm in a general mode. It is even capable of automatic duplex printing for twice the speed and half the paper usage. In addition to this speed, the X551dw is very efficient, using about half the ink and energy consumption of comparable laser printers, and it has a high resolution of 2,400 x 1,200 dpi.

For printing quickly, there is a large 4.3" color touchscreen on the front of the X551dw, allowing you to change settings and print directly from USB devices. The printer also features three trays for holding paper and has a maximum print size of 8.5 x 14" for standard office paper. It can hold up to 550 sheets and has a monthly duty cycle of about 75,000 pages. The X551dw connects to the computer via USB 2.0 or Ethernet 10/100Base-TX for networking capabilities. You can also use the wireless connectivity to print from mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. This networking allows you to connect to and print by using HP ePrint, Apple AirPrint, or Google Cloud Print services. It is even ENERGY STAR qualified.

          Comments about HP Officejet Pro X551dw Wireless Color Inkjet Printer:

          Just received the HP Officejet Pro X551dw and set-up was straightforward. Using it as a wireless printer and printing from iDevices and similar. Printing is fast and colors are vibrant on ColorLok paper.

          Please consider that the footprint is larger than most desktop inkjets and is probably more suitable for a small business or home office.
