HP OFFICEJET PRO 7720 WIDE FORMAT ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER
What is the HP OfficeJet Pro 7720
HP has expanded its range of OfficeJet Pro machines over the past few years. They’re designed for the small office and home office market and are aimed at those who would have bought a small laser all-in-one up to a few years ago. Now, however, the simplicity, colour quality and price of an inkjet alternative are powerful reasons to reconsider.
HP OfficeJet Pro 7720 – Design and features
Physically, the OfficeJet Pro 7720 is a substantial machine, in part due to its ability to print on A3 as well as A4 paper. Its case is smartly black and white, with a low-profile
35-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) set into the scanner lid. It accepts paper up to US Legal size, which is about the same as Imperial Foolscap. This could endear it to solicitors.
At the left end of the OfficeJet Pro 7720’s front panel is a 68mm touch panel, set into a surround that makes it look bigger than it is. The menus and information are well laid out and the panel is reasonably responsive to touch.
Below the control panel is a single 250-sheet paper tray, which accepts sheets from 15 x 10cm up to portrait A3. All paper is loaded in this one tray, though, since there’s no separate feed for single sheets.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 7720 can be connected via wireless, USB or 10/100 Ethernet; it’s most versatile using wireless. It can also link to phones and tablets, and HP provides an easy-to-use print app for both iOS and Android platforms.
The four ink cartridges slide into holders behind a large, front-panel flap and are available in standard or high-yield capacities. HP wants to rival SOHO laser printers, and offers high-yield cartridges that give 1600 colour pages or a substantial 3000 black-and-white ones.
