Summary: Comments about HP Officejet Pro K5400DTN Inkjet Printer: I've used the HP OfficeJet Pro L7580 which is the same print system as this one and the ink cartridges last forever and are affordable. Very good printer reliable and affordable, just a little loud and large though.
Summary: The HP k5400dtn is a great printer, has two speeds, fast and faster. We use these printer with our Continuous Ink Systems. They were designed as a continuous ink system from the factory, ink tubes run from the cartridges to the separate printheads. Pros Extra page tray (600 sheets) Duplex printing (both sides, great for brochures, we recommend HP tri-fold matte) Network ready (Ethernet) CIS ready (install a continuous ink system in less than five min.
Summary: and have not been disappointed over the past year of ownership. Here is the quote from the review that sold me: "[M]y research points to the HP Officejet K5400 as having the most cost-efficient ink supply right now. The estimated cost per page of black ink for the K5400 is 1.4 cents, and color is 5.9 cents per page ... It prints extremely fast, faster than any desktop printer I've seen. It runs reliably, and prints with near laser-quality for office stuff.
Summary: I use this printer mainly for printing envelopes, but also have used the duplexing letters for large mailings. It can handle about 30 envelopes at a time, and prints the 30 in about 1minute in draft mode which typically looks just fine. I have only had my printer for about 1 month and have done about 3000 envelopes. The XL ink cartridges seem to last forever. The duplexer is great and the extra paper tray is a plus.
