Printer description
Hewlett-Packard's standard mid-volume color printer for small workgroups and power users delivers the speed users need in the print modes they use the most. Robust networking features offer easy connectivity and manageability for hassle-free workgroup printing.
The HP Business Inkjet 2230 printer comes with 16 MB of RAM and supports PCL3/High Performance Architecture (HPA).
The HP Business Inkjet 2280 color printer comes with 32MB of RAM, PCL3/HPA, HP PCL 5, and PostScript Level 3 support.
The HP Business Inkjet 2280TN color printer offers an integrated network printer solution that includes an HP Jetdirect 615N print server, a 250-sheet accessory paper tray, PCL3/HPA, HP PCL 5, and PostScript Level 3 support.
 note:
In order to work and connect to a Macintosh, a Jetdirect print server and PostScript card must be used. Only the HP Business Inkjet 2280TN printer (C8121A) comes with these devices. The HP Business Inkjet 2280 comes with a PostScript card so a Jetdirect print server must be purchased separately. For the HP Business Inkjet 2230 both a Jetdirect print server and a PostScript card must be purchased.
Printer features
  • HP's Modular Ink Delivery System, with four individually replaceable ink cartridges, provides affordable color for workgroups, with significant cost savings and speed gains.
  • Enhanced color layering with HP PhotoREt III Precision Technology for true-to-life photo images on any type of paper.
  • HP ColorSmart III for intelligent color and image enhancements.
  • Robust 10,000-page monthly duty cycle is designed to handle the printing demands of small workgroups.
  • Easier print project planning with HP's smart printing features including LCD ink gauge, printhead replacement warnings, and transparency sensor.
