HP Officejet Pro X576dw: Design And Features

This device is lighter than it appears, uses far less energy than a laser and generates a lot less heat. On the time of launching the HP Officejet Pro X576dw is the top of the line model within the X series, and its size certainly communicates that stature. Its dimensions 20.3 inches and 20.3 inches tall and wide respectively put it in the identical weight class as larger workgroup laser printers Control is via a 109 mm colour touchscreen, which is simple to use, although not as sensitive as a modern smartphone display, but it is surprisingly portable around the office. It has an industrial design that appears nice, although it could look too “businessy” for the home.

The massive flatbed scanner comes full with a 50-sheet ADF, which just like the printer is a duplex device. Unlike a normal inkjet, which wants to wait for small heads to traverse the page, the wide head within the HP Officejet Pro X576dw covers the whole page width while the paper flows underneath without pause.

The HP Officejet Pro X576dw 792Mhz processor is pretty powerful, and it is possible to make use of different functions, such as scanning to a USB stick
