HP Deskjet 5500 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Deskjet 5500 printer 10 April 2012

Our Verdict:

The HP Deskjet 5500 is one of the highly praised products aimed at users in need of a simple colour inkjet printer for their personal printing needs at home or in their small office. It is an affordable device that promises high-quality printouts and low cost ink cartridges, but it is still sub-par in terms of speed.

Design

Its sleek semi-bubble-shaped design fits the aesthetic of the modern home or a small office. The Deskjet 5500 is user-friendly, with minimal buttons arranged neatly in a column. There is a print cancel button so you can instantly stop print jobs in the queue and save paper. The printer is rather heavy at 11.5 pounds.

Advantages

When printing on photo paper, the resolution can be optimised to 4800x1200 dpi. The HP Deskjet 5500 has an onscreen ink level indicator so you can tell whether it is time to buy replacement cartridges or not. You can easily integrate the printer in a small network of computers because of its optional networking feature. Both Mac and PC devices are compatible with the HP Deskjet 5500. Inks are also economical, making the printer cheap to run in the long-term.

Disadvantages

The HP Deskjet 5500 is only speedy in draft or fast mode, but becomes very sluggish in best mode. Because of the flimsily-designed paper tray, this printer is no stranger to paper jams. It is also noisy when printing in draft mode. The cartridges for HP Deskjet 5500 are quite expensive.
