HP OfficeJet 7000 Wide Format


RH Numbers

This is a fairly conventional design for HP, with a telescopic feed tray at the front and an output tray positioned directly above. There's no single-sheet feed and there are no card or PictBridge sockets. The four ink cartridges make this small-business-based printer straightforward to maintain and it comes with network as well as USB connections. The top speed we measured was 8.8ppm, though HP claims 33ppm in draft mode. Since the printer can take up to 52s before starting a print job, this is more daft than draft. Print quality is not up to HP's normal standard, though print costs of 1.8p and 5.7p for black and colour are good.

This printer uses HP's high-capacity ink system, where the cartridges sit behind a smoked cover at the front of the machine and are attched by tubes to the print head. This means its running costs of 0.9p and 3.6p for ISO black and colour are easily the lowest in this group. The machine itself is conventionally designed, using a front feed tray with an exit path on its top cover. We saw a maximum speed of 11.3ppm, which is comparatively fast and print quality from the 1200dpi heads is well up to general SOHO use on both plain and photo paper. A discount price of around £200 makes this a good A3 printer for higher workloads
