If your small or medium-sized office is looking for faster printing, two of HP’s printers hold the Guinness World Record as the fastest printers to complete the printing of 500 pages by a color desktop printer.


The models, both Officejet Pro editions, are the X551dw and the X576dw. They jointly achieved the record by each printing 500 pages in seven minutes and 19 seconds. We’ll save you from doing the math; this speed works out to less than one second per page – .878 seconds per page, to be exact.


They tested the printers in April of 2012, so these two printer models are literally the fastest color desktop printers today. If you think you have found a quicker printer model, let the printer manufacturer or Guinness World Records know about it!


Both all-in-one models are well suited to service a small or medium-sized office or business, and are packed with features. The X-series of Hewlett-Packard printers use PageWide technology, which cuts down on the wear and tear on your printer’s small moving parts.


Rather than moving back and forth across the paper when printing, PageWide printheads are stationary with 42,000 individual nozzles that are spread out above the full width of the paper. This allows them to get the ink onto the paper with a single pass.


There is no doubt that PageWide technology assists with the faster printing speeds. It is exciting to think about what other technology can be applied to create even faster printing, although .878 seconds per page is certainly nothing to scoff at.

HP has been manufacturing some great products in the recent past. We’ve seen the accessory for facilitating mobile printing with older HP printer models, and now they have released a new portable mobile printer model to copy, print, and scan on the go.


The HP OfficeJet 150 is an updated version of their OfficeJet 100, with additional features such as the ability to scan and copy.


The mobile printers are not known for their speed however, they more than make up for speed with the convenience of printing, scanning, and copying documents on the go. The HP OfficeJet 150 offers a print speed of up to 5 pages per minute in monochrome and 3.5 pages per minute in color.


It connects via USB for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and is equipped with Bluetooth 2.0 so it works with most Windows, Blackberry, Android, and iOS devices. Along with a 65w power pack, it comes with a battery that can print up to 500 pages between charges.


The OfficeJet 150 can print photos and holds 50 sheets of regular printer paper, or 3 envelopes. It offers direct photo printing via PictBridge, and uses a color touchscreen for ease and printing accessibility. You can also choose an optional car charger.


With its compact design, any on the go small business can make use of the convenience offered by the HP OfficeJet 150. It has even been recommended for anyone who has little space and doesn’t need to print at high volume.

Good news for those people who still use an older printer and can’t justify buying a new one, just for the use of mobile printing. HP has released an accessory that will allow you to print from your mobile devices on an older printer that generally doesn’t support mobile printing.


Priced at $69.99, the device allows your smartphone to connect with the router in a standard HP printer through wireless direct connections. More than 40 million HP printers manufactured after 2008 are suitable candidates for use with this new device.


The 1200w Mobile Print Accessory extends the life of your older HP printer by a few years and offers convenience to everyone in your home or office that uses a smartphone. Small Business Trends’ Chief Technology Officer Leland McFarland says that this technology will be added to all future HP models.


This technology, while still costly for some, saves a lot of people money who would otherwise have to purchase a new printer to keep up with the demands of needing mobile printing in a fast-paced office environment.


Even better, the device allows Near Field Communication so your device can connect with the printer simply by being in close proximity, usually touching each other.

HP announced that the company would be entering the 3D printing market in mid-2014. Hewlett-Packard is a huge, reputable organization and the news must be making some of the smaller 3D printer companies a bit nervous.


I can’t think of many HP failures and their idea of a fast and affordable 3D printer will most likely catch on quickly; most people who would be using printers are familiar with the brand and would choose it over an unknown brand.


HP is also a gigantic company with enough resources to push their products through mass advertising campaigns, and to quickly manufacture the printers in bulk to reduce costs. Everyone likes a deal, everyone knows HP, and the lower cost alone is enough to attract buyers.


HP also has the ability to manufacture the 3D printers at a speed not easily matched by their smaller counterparts. With facilities all over the world, HP will have no problems keeping up with demand, and may even see business from others who do not want to wait for their chosen products to become available from smaller producers.


It remains to be seen whether HP can produce a superior 3D printer, but they are serious about trying. The HP labs are in the process of developing a variant to the models we see today.
