HP TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 - Scanning the Third Dimension
19 March 2012
Excerpt: HP's TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 is a color laser multifunction printer that handles its scanning function very differently from other MFPs out there; it literally employs a digital camera to capture the items. This makes it useful for 'scanning' 3D objects too. So is it any good? Let's find out.
Pros: Good 3D object scanning results, Web-connected features (ePrint, print apps), Sharp text quality
Cons: Slow color printing speed, No fax function; no ADF, Fairly expensive for a 3-in-1 MFP

Excerpt: The rise of the consumer-friendly internet has given wings to some really amazing services to help a small business. In some cases, these projects never would have left the ground if it weren’t for services like Etsy, Kickstarter , and Indiegogo. The hobbyist-turned-business-owner has a lot to deal with, in order to keep costs down and still enjoy what it is you were doing as a hobby in the first place.
HP TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 Review: Is 3D Just a Gimmick?
3 February 2012
Conclusion: The TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 is a really interesting MFP and I can't say that too often when it comes to printers, believe me. The 3D scanning angle is new to me and I thought HP did a good job with it, even without being able to capture all sides of 3D objects. What won me over was the idea of an 8 megapixel camera as opposed to the traditional flatbed scanner. The copies and scans were so much more accurate and colorful then what I see with most MFP scanners.
Pros: 3D scans, copies, Good print quality, HP ePrint, Web Apps
Cons: Manual duplexing, No front side USB, Slow color print speeds
Conclusion: HP is an endlessly experimental company and the M275 will certainly prove an interesting prospect for the curious. However, we suspect the 3D feature will remain a short-term fad for many users – with eBay sellers perhaps being an exception. Take out the 3D feature and you have a proficient but not outstanding printer for the business and/or home office.
Pros: Unique 3D capabilities; compact and well built printer; plenty of connectivity options; smart Install
Cons: Can only hold 50 sheets of paper; Colour isn’t great; high running costs
Excerpt: Com a introdução da TopShot a HP apresentou uma impressora multifunções verdadeiramente diferente do habitual, não tanto a nível de impressão, que poderia ser muito melhor, mas a nível da digitalização. A TopShot tem uma câmara...
Pros: Versatilidade do sistema de digitalização | Ligações e funcionalidades
