For anyone in the market for a new printer, they know there are many choices out there. But how does one go about assessing their current need for a printer? The decision is actually fairly simple. And after narrowing down the choices, the HP Deskjet F380 seems to stand out far and above the competition.
First of all, the computer user must decide what price range he or she is willing to commit to. Now this is sort of a loaded question. If the price is too low, the person will have to settle for a printer that is sub-par to what a slightly higher price could purchase. So, when determining price, it is best to commit to a little bit more and get a printer that is going to function properly, and it will stand the test of time.
The HP Deskjet F380 is a moderately priced HP All in one printer. All-in-one’s are printer/scanner/copier machines all built into one unit. More and more printers are going this direction, and to find a personal printer (not including laser printers or other larger such machines) is getting harder to find. This is not a problem, because these combined units are often the same price as the individual units.
The thing to look out for on a printer is two-fold. First, the pages per minute is very important. The HP Deskjet F380 can handle up to 20 ppm in black and white, and up to 14 ppm in color. This means every 3 seconds another page is finished. The second quality to look for in a printer is the quality of the color pages. The HP Deskjet F380 can print color pages with photo-like quality. So whether the user needs documents or pictures printed, this machine can do it all. While many machines of this caliber will cost a pretty penny, this one can be acquired for a very reasonable price.
