Is This The Best Desktop Printer?
In the thick of the 21st century, when multi-tasking is the order of the day, having gadgets that perform multiple functions is not quite a luxury, but more like a necessity. This is where a device like the HP Deskjet F380 comes out a winner. Not only does it perform the functions of printing, copying and scanning, but does each one of them flawlessly, thereby saving space, money, and most importantly, your piece of mind.
Gone are the days when graphic artists had to tamper with the colors of their work just so that the discolored print out would somewhat match the colors of the original. The HP Deskjet F380 can make color print outs in resolutions as high as 4800 x 1200 dpi, thereby producing accurate and stunning results.
Like most scanners, the scanned image in the HP Deskjet F380 appears slightly darker than the original, however if you export the image and tweak the brightness and contrast, an image extremely close to the original can be obtained. The sleek scanning device at the top of the HP Deskjet F380 harbors a smooth glass surface under a thin plastic lid. Naturally, the emergence of such a device would render most stand alone scanners obsolete.
The quick copying speed of the HP F380 is another major attraction. At a resolution of 600 dpi, it can copy an average of twenty pages per minute. Though this kind of copying would cost significantly more than regular Xeroxing machines, it is ideal for smaller businesses where huge copy machines cannot be afforded.
Some have attempted to tarnish the image of the HP Deskjet F380 with complaints of paper jamming and high ink consumption, but research will show that no printers anywhere are immune to such things. Instances of paper jams could be reduced by fanning the pile of papers in the printer tray or by shuffling them about a little, thereby causing air gaps and hence facilitating smoother paper rolling.
The HP Deskjet F380 has also been accused of being too expensive. But if those making such claims were to add the cost of a printer, scanner and copier individually, they would soon silence any accusations they once had against the all-in-one HP Deskjet F380.
