HP Color LaserJet 4500 Printer Driver Series

By | July 29, 2017

HP Color LaserJet 4500 is a printer that is launched by HP, one of the most popular manufacturer for electronic devices, to accommodate the increasing demands of printers. Despite being introduced as workgroup printer, this machine is only equipped with parallel USB as its connectivity. Sure, it can connect to several computers, but for some office, this type of connectivity is not favorable. The printing speed is also slightly below average for a laser printer, with only 16 pages per minute for mono documents, and 4 pages per minute for color documents.

HP Color LaserJet 4500 has a standard maximum resolution for laser printers, with 600 x 600 dpi. Despite not exceptional, this resolution is good enough for documents printing. Its media capacity is large enough for a workgroup printer, with up to 400 pages. The monthly duty cycle is also suitable for workgroups, with 35,000 pages per month.

The power consumption for HP Color LaserJet 4500 is a bit disappointing, especially for small office. It uses almost 500 watts during operation. This is surely a bad news for small offices’ electricity bills. Overall, despite several disadvantages, this device gives just well enough performance for your offices.
