HP Introduces “Plug and Print” Laser Printers
HP has bolstered the HP LaserJet Pro printer line with a new ”plug and print” technology that allows customers to begin printing in as little as two minutes by simply connecting a netbook, notebook or desktop PC to the printer with a USB cable – no CD required.
New monochrome printers featuring HP Smart Install include the HP LaserJet Pro P1100 Printer series – the most energy-efficient laser printer on the planet(1) – the HP LaserJet Pro M1130/M1210 Multifunction Printer (MFP) series and the HP LaserJet Pro P1566/P1606dn Printer series.
HP also unveiled the HP Scanjet Professional 1000 Mobile Scanner, the company’s first portable scanner for fast, on-the-go scanning without the need for batteries or an AC adapter.
“Our customers demand easy printing and we’re giving it to them – no clumsy CD-ROMs to install, no drivers to download,” said Ron Coughlin, senior vice president, LaserJet and Enterprise Solutions, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. “HP Smart Install offers the future of printing, today.”
HP LaserJet printers with Smart Install
The new HP LaserJet Pro lineup features a sleek, black finish and delivers professional, cost-effective results while enabling small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to reduce their environmental impact.
The printers feature new HP Auto-On Technology, which intelligently senses activity – such as when a print job is sent to the printer – and awakens the device automatically from “off” mode.(2) It complements HP Auto-Off Technology, which automatically adjusts the power settings and turns the printer off when there is no print activity.
With HP Auto-On/Auto-Off Technology, the new HP LaserJet P1100 Printer series can save up to 72 percent on energy costs versus its predecessor.(3) The printers also use Original HP LaserJet print cartridges with energy-efficient toner for energy avings of up to 35 percent on every page versus earlier products.(4)
