Printing ... in color

Finally I'm using a color printer at home. Actually it's just my 3rd printer right now. In the past I had a matrix printer (on my 286 machine; called the Citizen Swift 24 - cool for large code listings :-) - which is still somewhere around on my attic) and from 1994 on I was using a HP LaserJet 4 machine which is still working very fine. So, I did never pass through the phase of InkJet or Color InkJet. As from today I have a new big beast on my desk over here: HP Color LaserJet 3700 DN. It's just a great machine and I'm sure we'll be able to use it for 10 years as well. Some specs:

  • 33.5 kg; 48 cm x 45 cm x 47 cm (W x D x H)
  • 16 ppm color, 16 ppm black/white; 600x600 dpi
  • Duplex printing
  • 128 MB RAM
  • Ethernet connection

Why I never used a cheap InkJet? Well, a combination of "need for speed", "need for quality" and the fact that the cartridges for InkJets are soooo expensive for a little number of pages (when compared using the same quality as laser). Anyway, I like the machine I have right now so much... And as I'm (and other people in the house for digital photos and scanned "items") printing rather much this is a welcome relief (the HP LJ4 had a great quality too, but only b/w and rather slow).
