123 HP OfficeJet 5746 Printer Setup

HP OFFICE JET 5746

Office jet 5746 is designed for the small and home office and has adopted a very rounded styling. All-in-one device capable of printing, scanning, copying and faxing. Has Wi-Fi and NFC built in making suitable for wireless printing from mobile devices.

DESIGN AND FEATURES:

Control panel is very clean, since everything bar the power button is either part of 68 mm touch screen or one of the touch buttons down either side. Set at a fixed angle, but reflections are minimal and easy to read. This is quite positive about touches, as the screen isn’t sensitive is used.

The low-profile Automatic Document feeder (ADF) can take up to 25 sheets but can’t scan duplex. The paper tray which is a low-profile affair with a meagre capacity of 125 sheets has a separate 15-sheet photo tray sliding along top which can only take 15 X10 cm photo blanks. The indent in the bottom of the paper tray quite shallow and can difficult to grip has sausage fingers.

CONNECTIONS AND WIRELESS:

USB and SD card slots are hidden behind a pivoting circular cover, which is a neat style highlight, though the USB socket is not PictBridge compatible, so no direct connection of digital cameras is possible.

HP Office jet 5746 is designed as much to print from mobile devices from a PC. While there’s USB socket at the back using the wireless connections opens up a wider range of possibilities.
Can print remotely but more immediate use in Wireless direct which enables direct print from IOS and Android devices which can make a quick connection via NFC.

PRINT SPEEDS:

HP rates speeds of 12 ppm mono and 8 ppm colour, of measuring a mono speed of 7.5 ppm on five-page document which rose to 9.8 ppm on the 20-page, longer document.
This is not far off the rated speed and is fair in real terms, colour result isn’t good though with a measured of 4.1 ppm for five-page text and colour graphics test. The mono duplex speed even beat at 5.5 sides per minute, although that was on a 20-side document.
Printer waits from 3 secs to 6 secs between sides to allow ink drying something piezoelectric printers.

PRINT QUALITY AND COSTS:

Print quality from HP is good, with crisp, densely black text and bright, solid colour graphics. A colour copy lost a little colour definition, but was still better that many at the price. Photo prints offer realistic colours and plenty of detail with a little loss of shadows.

There are only two cartridges in the machine black and tricolour so maintenance is simple, machine automatically informs the company when ink is low so that new cartridges can be despatched before run out.
