After my first printer reached its end of life status (meaning that it has become too expensive to maintain it), I decided to buy a new printer. I haven’t bought a new printer for almost 6 years, I think I want to spend on a reliable and flexible printer.
After two weeks of window shopping, I decided to get the HP Officejet 5680 series, because I really wanted to have an ‘office look’ for my desk+workstation (yeah, I’m thinking of running my own business seriously).
Among its features are :
- 20 page per-minute printing speed (draft mode)
- Photo/transparency printing capabilities
- Flatbed Scanner
- Copier capabilities (enlarge, reduce size)
- Fax capabilities (33.6kbps max speed)
- Fax Junk number banning
- Phone (with Caller-ID)
To summarize it, HP Officejet printer has all feature that I need to start my own SOHO business with functionalities that one expected to run day-to-day task. Best of all, the printer (CUPS) and scanner (sane) works well on Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn), w00t!
I’ve tested most of the feature of this little gizmo and is impressed with its performance, If you ever want to start a small-business like me, I would recommend you to get one too!
