The HP LaserJet 3055 Printer is an all in one printer that is designed for use by small businesses and in homes. The all in one machine offers prints, copies, faxing and scanning. This laser jet printer is able to perform the function of several other office machines without the expense of investing in them individually. The machine makes color scans, sends black and white faxes and makes black prints or copies.

This printer prints up to 19 ppm at both the normal and best quality print. Although the duty cycle of the machine is 7000 pages per month, the recommended print level is between 500 and 2000 pages per month. The input tray holds 250 sheets and the output tray will hold 100 sheets of paper.

Most consumers find installation and setup of the plug and play machine simple. A print driver is included on the enclosed CD but the newest drivers are found on the manufacturer's website. The updated driver contains patches and updates that allow the printer to work with the latest OS being used on your computer. Drivers may need to be updated if changing the system's OS.

The HP 3055 only accepts one paper tray and it is included in the package. A priority feed slot allows feeding up to ten sheets of other sizes of paper or media, including envelopes. Duplex printing is only available with a manual re-feed of the paper once it is printed on the front side.

This model can be used with either a PC or Macintosh system. If using with a PC, the printer requires a Pentium II or newer processor and 128 MB RAM. A minimum of a 250MB hard drive is also required. Systems should be running Windows 98 or newer. With a Macintosh, requirements are similar, with the system requiring an OS X v 10.3 or newer.

The package includes the all in one machine along with all needed power cords. Purchasers will find a black toner cartridges included in the package. The user's guide is included in electronic form on the installation CD.

Also included is software for text recognition to convert scanned text to a word processor. Phone cords for the fax machine are also included. Owners will need to provide their own printer cord for the machine.

Up to 110 pages of materials scheduled for faxing may be stored in the all in one machine. Fax speed is rapid at three seconds per page. Resolution of faxes is at 300 dpi. The scanner offers a better resolution at 300 dpi and allows for color as well as black and whit scans. Maximum size for scanned items is only slightly larger than a normal 8 1/2x11 sheet of paper.

Consumers should be aware that the HP LaserJet 3055 Printer prints only black prints with its HP printer toner. However, the prints are excellent for use with text documents. Many small businesses find that offering only black prints to employees is an excellent way to save on replacement toner costs. In addition, as with other laser printers, prints cost less than inkjet prints. The results of the HP LaserJet 3055 compatible toner are more smudge proof than prints made on a laser printer as well.
