HP Business Inkjet 2230 and 2280 Series - Memory Usage Overview

Issue:
How is the memory utilized in the HP Business Inkjet 2230 and 2280 series printers?
Solution
The printer language (personality) determines how memory is utilized. PCL 3 printer language uses 16 megabytes (MB) of built-in RAM and cannot use additional RAM. PostScript(R) and PCL 5C printer languages use 32 MB of RAM that comes standard on the PostScript 3/PCL 5C personality card. The sections below provide more detail on memory usage.
HP Business Inkjet 2230 series printers
The HP Business Inkjet 2230 series printers come standard with 16 MB of built-in RAM and PCL 3-printer language. The PCL 3 printer language processes one line of information from the computer at a time and accesses only the 16 MB of built-in RAM. Additional memory is not required or even possible because there is no provision to add more memory unless the PostScript 3/PCL 5C personality card is installed.
HP Business Inkjet 2280 series printers
The HP Business Inkjet 2280 series printer come standard with 16 MB of built-in RAM (used only when printing with the PCL 3 printer language) plus another 32 MB of RAM on the PostScript 3/PCL 5C personality card for a total of 48 MB of RAM. PostScript 3 and PCL 5C printer languages require more memory because an entire page of information is processed at once. An optional 128 MB SDRAM memory module can be installed on the PostScript 3/PCL 5C personality card for a total of 176 MB of RAM. Adding memory to the printer will allow the printer to process more complex PostScript 3 and PCL 5C jobs, but it may not necessarily increase processing speed.
  note:
The PostScript 3/PCL 5C personality card comes standard with the HP Business Inkjet 2280 series printers.
