There are a myriad of functions and features when it comes to the HP LaserJet 4050n printer, it must be said. That Hewlett-Packard has ensured that the printer will deliver all those functions and features in an extremely welcoming user environment, is doubly-impressive.

This printer model is intended to be a replacement for the highly-regarded 4000 series of the HP printers, by the way, with the HP toner 27X continuing the quality output expected. Hewlett-Packard looks to have intended that this printer be better at everything that the 4000 series printers already did well enough for most.

It, frankly, has improved on the performance standards that the 4000 series printers met and exceeded with regularity, as a matter of fact. Most users will have little to complain about when it comes to this new model.

At its most basic, the 4050n is intended to be part of a broad solution set for a network environment, and it largely succeeds in this regard. It'll fit easily enough into any size network environment, acting as one of many such printers, for one. To ensure that this is so, Hewlett-Packard designed a well-working user interface that helps to make sure it performs exactly as intended at all times.

The HP 4050n with HP 27X toner is a good workhorse-standard laser printer that can handle most any workgroup and its requirements with relative ease. This monochrome printer is also fairly inexpensive, which is an unexpected bonus. Retail prices range between $100 and $190, with certain online retailers discounting the price even more, as a matter of fact. Given its capabilities, this is an impressive price.

As evidence of such capabilities, the 4050n is able to print out at a maximum resolution of 1,200 dots per inch (dpi). Normally, printers at this price point usually only come with 600 dpi resolution capability. In other words, at 1,200 dpi, most any printed product will emerge from the printer looking crisp, clean and very sharply-contrasted in comparison to the output of other competitor printers.

Even though the 4050n is relatively inexpensive by most standards, that doesn't mean that Hewlett-Packard didn't imbue it with a high-level of performance. It puts out product at 17 pages per minute which is a very high performance point, given that most printers in its price range can only do 8 to 12 pages per minute. The HP basically smashes that criteria with ease.

As far as other particular specifications, the HP 4050n comes with wired and wireless connectivity, including an Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX interface. It also can hold up to 600 sheets of paper within its trays and it has a nice level of durability, with 60,000 pages per month able to be printed before needing maintenance. It prints on a wide variety of media stock and it comes with a 1,000-page printer cartridge, as well.

The 4050n seems to have been designed to meet the needs of a business needing a number of small workgroup printers to integrate into a large network, for the most part. It also seems to be intended for those businesses that are concerned about controlling costs and eliminating reprints with LaserJet 4050n cartridges is a good start.

At a price of between $100 and $190, the 4050n appears to be just what the printer doctor ordered, so to speak. The HP toner C4127X shines on every page, allowing just what you want there, without smudges or other problems inferior ink toner cartridges can produce.
