HP Color LaserJet 8500 and 8550 series provide an ideal solution for high-speed, high-standard departmental color printing. They produce up to 12-inch by 18.5-inch output, can print both sides in color, and will handle a wide range of media including plain bond, glossy paper, and 80-pound card stock. With 32 MB standard installed memory (64 MB in the 8500DN & 8550DN) and blazing rated engine speeds of 6 ppm for 8.5 x 11 and A4 color and 24 ppm for 8.5 x 11 and A4 black and white documents, these color printers will let your network users reap the benefits of ″mopying″ (creating multiple original prints) instead of copying - resulting in multiple crisp new originals instead of copies duplicated on a copier! And in addition to everything else, they are designed to be easy to support and maintain!
