Conclusion: Laser printers work fast, while inkjet printers create better photos -- but the HP Officejet Pro X576dw offers the best of both worlds. This inkjet printer uses a special "PageWide" nozzle that lays down ink faster (and cheaper) than regular inkjets.
Pros: Laser-like speed, Very good text, graphics and photo quality, Easy to set up and use, Full-featured, Low ink costs
Conclusion: The X576dw is considerably more expensive than HP’s other Officejet MFPs, and it’s also more expensive than some of HP’s Laserjet laser printers. But HP is justified in its claims that the X576dw is the fastest desktop printer in the industry. The MFP did not provide photographic quality output in our tests, but then again it is not promoted as a photo printer. But if the need for photo printing arises, you can get acceptable results on photo paper.
Pros: Extremely fast, Duplexer, Good connectivity options
Cons: Expensive and heavy for an inkjet, Soggy ink on light paper, Output was not photo quality with papers
Summary: The Officejet Pro X576dw delivers a generous serving of features exclusive to HP, including a new Pagewide printhead that grants it the speed benefits of a laser printer while maintaining the color print quality of an inkjet, making it worthwhile for offices shopping for a professional imaging solution.
Pros: The HP Officejet Pro X576dw includes the company's first page-wide array print head that increases print speeds and improves overall output quality, while the network-ready printer also gives users the ability to print from the cloud and install a suite of customized apps for use with the onboard 4.3-inch color touch-screen display.
Cons: Small businesses looking for extra features will be disappointed to find that the X576dw doesn't include a stapler or other document organization options.
Summary: Granted, not every business needs an $800 high-volume multifunction printer, but for those that do, this is one of the best I’ve seen, and the PageWide technology makes it the most inexpensive-to-use printer I know of. (Again, if you shop around, you can find it for around $600.) Print quality is everything you’d expect for a high-end HP printer. So far, HP has not manufactured smaller, lower-price models based on this relatively new technology.
Conclusion: The X576dw is an impressive device. I mean what else can you say when the printer you're reviewing has been certified by Guinness World Records as the world's fastest desktop printer? But beyond the flashy stats, you'll also find plenty of substance: great print quality in text documents, color prints and even photo prints as well as reliable business-class scan, copy and fax features.
Pros: Print speeds, Energy use, Print quality
Cons: Difficulty with photo printing, Initial cost
Summary: HP's latest Officejet Pro X576dw MFP is based on inkjet technology. The print quality is really good and the cost of printing has also been kept fairly low, making it a very attractive proposition for small and midsized enterprises. Larger organizations could also consider it for workgroups within their organization thanks to the MFP's great performance and robustness.
Pros: Fast performance, USB & wireless direct printing, Autoduplex scanning, low cost per printed page

Pros: Incredibly fast printing, Easy to use, simple maintenance
