Get the most for your money with this printing solution for small work teams that features A3+ and specialty paper handling and lets you produce vibrant documents with speed and accuracy. The HP Business Inkjet 2800 series printer is a low-cost business printing solution-designed to print both colour and black-only office documents quickly and affordably. The printing system features four, individual, high-capacity print cartridges-you save money by replacing only empty cartridges. You can enjoy the flexibility and convenience of producing high-quality marketing collateral in-house, which reduces costs, saves time, and gives you control over the entire process. Print enlarged or reduced documents with document-scaling technology. Choose HP resizing options before you print to scale print jobs from 25 to 400 percent with virtually no loss in print quality or resolution. Extra training and the purchase of special software is not required, saving you time and money. Print booklets effortlessly with a booklet layout feature that automatically enables appropriate two-sided printing and reduce-to-fit options. In addition, a collation feature lets you print multiple copies of a single job, so all you need to do is fold and bind the printed pages into a booklet.


The HP Business Inkjet 2800 series printer is designed for sharing. The HP Business Inkjet 2800dtn model features the HP Jetdirect 620n Fast Ethernet print server installed in the EIO slot, which provides high-performance networking with up to 6 MB per second throughput speeds and heightened security. The remote management software included with the printer simplifies printer configuration and lets you easily manage a networked printer from any standard Web browser. In addition, the software includes job accounting, pages remaining, and diagnostics features to help you manage costs. Job accounting allows administrators to track and monitor each users' usage (for example, the type and number of pages printed and black and colour ink usage). This information can be used by administrators to track printer deployment, workload, and the purchase of supplies. Pages remaining lets you see the estimated number of pages that can be printed with the remaining ink for full colour, business colour, or black text documents. You can also determine if the ink levels are sufficient to print your jobs. Diagnostics help you perform troubleshooting and maintenance tasks, such as testing the printer's media paths, aligning printheads, and cleaning printheads. Administrators can also configure network settings.


One-year limited hardware warranty.
