    HP launches the Officejet Pro X - The World's Fastest Desktop Printer

    This desktop printer can go through a ream of paper in just over 7 minutes meaning the colour cartridges would be empty in under 1.6 hours.

    Hewlett Packard has announced the worldwide release of the OfficeJet Pro X multifunction inkjet printer. It’s a very fast desktop colour printer and is available in two forms; simply as a desktop printer or as a multi-function printer including a built in scanner with scan/copy/fax functionality. These OfficeJet Pro X printers owe their speed to the HP Pagewide Technology – the print head is the full width of the page so it doesn't have to shuffle around wasting time or compromising accuracy.

    The HP Officejet Pro X series printers X551dw and X576dw were tested by the Guinness book of records officials last year using ISO 24734 sample four-page category test documents using their fastest available colour mode. The HP printers achieved a speed of 500 sheets printed in 7 minutes, 19.25 seconds. They are rated in their official specifications at a speed of 70ppm. (Source)

    The XL cartridge yields are pretty impressive too - 9200 pages for the black, 6600 for the colours. RRP £86 each for the ink. Comparable to many of the laser printers in schools. Got a printer need coming up soon, might get one of these for that dept to try out.

    Bear in mind that those print speeds are for draft quality. Normal quality it drops to 42ppm.

    We've just gotten one of these yesterday. Uberquick! Massively impressed! Going to trial it in a mid to high use room today

    I've just spotted these printers while researching for a new office printer, would it be suitable for office admin use? Whats the print quality like and the toner consumption? I was going to a get an HP m551dn

    We put ours in quite a busy office and when i posted last and have yet to supply another set of inks. The yield is good and the quality is excellent. Of course in it's fastest mode it's as you expect any "draft" quality but still more than acceptable for a mail merge set of letters. Quality in the other modes (which are still ruddy quick by anyone's standards) is excellent.

    Thanks synaesthsia. Your comments just make it even harder to choose between the two, both are similar prices but the real saving is on the toners, cost aside it then comes down to reliability long term.

    According to HP its just as robust as the m551dn (75,000 monthly duty cycle) the officejet pro x 551dw is 80,000 monthly duty cycle.
