HP Officejet Pro K8600 Inkjet Printer (CB015A)
The HP Officejet Pro K8600 Inkjet Printer has been designed to produce professional quality prints at an affordable cost per page. This A3+ printer is incredibly versatile and would be the ideal printer choice for any demanding office environment.
The Officejet Pro K8600 is compact in size and has a stylish design which would complement the décor of most modern offices. The grey and black colour scheme with glossy black accents give a professional image which wouldn’t look out of place in the most up-market of graphic design studios.
With dimensions of 609.6 x 420.1 x 223mm, this printer will not take up unnecessary space on any desktop or workspace. The input and output trays for this printer are telescopic and can be retracted when not in use and will not obstruct when performing daily tasks in the office.
The K8600 is easy to use and has only two operating buttons and three indicator lights. Replacing the ink cartridges is also simple as they have been positioned at the front of the machine enabling quick and convenient replacement as required.
The Officejet Pro K8600 uses USB 2.0 connectivity and embedded network technology for larger workgroups. The printer can be used with multiple operating systems including Windows 2000, XP and Vista along with Mac OS X Version 10.3.8 and higher.
By using innovative HP Thermal Inkjet printing technology and HP 88 ink cartridges, the Officejet Pro K8600 can produce prints at up to 4800 x 1200dpi and boasts impressive output speeds. For general office use, the draft print settings will provide up to 35 mono or colour A4 pages per minute. This printer also has the capability to produce up to 12.5 black and white A3 pages per minute in draft print mode.
Designed to deliver waterproof, smudge free and fade-resistant prints, the HP 88 ink cartridge range uses innovative dye based inks suitable to use with a variety of paper varieties providing consistently outstanding results.
Original HP inks have been designed to produce laser quality documents at an affordable cost per page and the print yields of these cartridges reflect this. The HP 88 Black ink cartridge has a print yield of up to 850 pages based on 5% A4 coverage; the 88 Cyan, 88 Yellow and 88 Magenta inks each have print yields of up to 860, 860 and 1000 pages respectively.
To further increase productivity and reduce costs, HP has introduced high capacity versions of the HP 88 inks. The HP 88XL Black can print up to 2450 pages, the HP 88XL Cyan up to 1700, the HP 88XL Yellow up to 1540 and the HP 88XL Magenta up to 1980 pages. All in all the high capacity HP 88XL inks will drive down print costs and increase affordability.
When choosing paper for this machine, genuine HP paper fully complements the Thermal Inkjet Technology evident in the HP Officejet Pro K8600 . The Hewlett-Packard A3 Professional Matte Inkjet Paper is suitable for presentations, colour graphics, charts and sales reports. It has been designed to be used on both Inkjet and Laser printers, and comes in a 500 sheet ream.
