HP Officejet Pro X551DW Driver Download. The HP Officejet Pro X551dw is an inkjet printer that simply print function; point scan or fax so. This series uses a technology that allows it to reach speeds normally reserved laser. We already tested its big sister, the Officejet Pro X576dw, which embeds it, copy, scan and fax. The small she is as good as the great? It's far enough small compact ink jet printers. Its dimensions (52 x 40 x 41 cm) approach rather than a 4-in-1 laser model. It will make a nice place in an office for the shelter. Still, everything is designed to not having to handle the printer, whether to charge the paper in the main tray, which has a capacity of 1000 pages, or to change cartridges; everything is on the front. A second paper tray (50 sheets) from the side. The 10-inch diagonal touch screen is extremely welcome. Its surface allows a clear and intuitive navigation. On the side of this screen, there is a USB port for connecting a storage medium and print directly from it. The Wi-Fi Direct is also present, always practical for not disclosing the password to its internal network.

The ink jet system which is in this Officejet X551dw consists of a single print head of the width of an A4 (technology Page Wide) counting no less than 42,240 nozzles. The time saving is due to the fact that there is no carriage that moves laterally, each line is printed immediately. This allows HP to promise 40 pages per minute (ppm), as much or more than laser printers in the same class. Is the promise held? Yes, definitely. We measure, in both color and black and white speeds of 42 ppm. This is double what others offer the fastest ink jet models, such as the Brother MFC-J4620dw, which tops out at 21 ppm in black and white; the flow is achieved by X551dw duplex, bane of many printers.

The print quality is not far behind with legible graphics, gradients well respected and colors rather faithful but Not for the photo. This technology, however, is clearly not intended for printing photos; the 10 x 15 cm is also not even offered in the configuration. We still tried printing a photo A4, with the same speed: it took only 30 seconds to get the draw. However, too many traces appear on the image to make it usable. The great X576dw sister is not more economical and consumes 4.5 W in standby. The Officejet Pro X551dw doing much better and merely 1.5 W under the same conditions; Nevertheless, the majority of inkjet printers fall below the Watt in standby bar. In printing, X551 up to 28 W, nearly double the average for inkjet printers, but still much less than the laser. Silence is not the strong point of this model, since its noise printing means up to 52 dB (A). As a reminder, we consider a printer as silent as it does not exceed 50 dB (A). One of the advantages of technology Page Wide operated here is the gain in terms of cost per page. Indeed, the average we measured fifty inkjet printers is 9.3 ct per page. Here, with XL cartridges, the X551dw down to 4.5 ct, either at the level of the laser printers, although the best of the latter down to less than 3 ct per page. XL cartridges offer autonomies 6,600 pages for color and 9,200 pages for black.
Responsiveness is the highlight of this Officejet Pro X551dw, since it only takes 24 seconds after starting out a page, and 10 seconds from sleep. The HP Officejet Pro single-function printer X551dw is intended, as its name suggests, the professionals looking for a printer offering quality inkjet print associated with the speed of the laser. If the copy, scan and fax you is necessary, it will turn to the HP Officejet Pro X576dw almost 2 times more expensive.
