Printer description
The HP Deskjet 890C series printers are fast color Inkjet printers with professional photo-quality output and built-for-business connectivity. They have the most state-of-the-art printing mechanism in the HP Deskjet line, enabling the best combination of print quality and throughput of any personal Inkjet printer on the market.
The HP Deskjet 890C series printers provide laser-like black print quality and outstanding color graphics on both plain paper and transparencies. The HP Deskjet 890C series printers can be connected to either a personal computer (locally shared) or attached directly to the network via an external print server (network-connect).
The HP Deskjet 890C series printers are targeted at the business printing market, primarily the small business segment (<100 employees). Its professional photo-quality output, productivity-enhancing performance and built-for-business connectivity make it particularly attractive to customers in this segment. It will also appeal to customers in the medium/large business market segments.
The software provided with the HP Deskjet 890C series printers includes the HP ColorSmart printer driver, 110 Windows fonts with HP FontSmart, plus 16 TrueType (TM) fonts for Windows, and the HP Deskjet 890C Toolbox. The Toolbox provides all the information needed in one location. Online help, printer status, and maintenance functions are accessible through the Toolbox.
The HP Deskjet 890C series printers use a wide variety of media (paper) types and sizes, including labels, envelopes, transparencies, plain and specialty papers from 4 x 6 to 8.5 x 14 inches, plus manual two-sided printing.
