QUICK IN­STAL

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS - —TEXT BY NIDHI SIN­GAL AND PIC­TURES BY RA­JWANT RAWAT

The lat­est colour printer that we put to test is the new Laser Jet Pro 1025. Com­ing from HP, the printer makes some big claims. For in­stance, this is the small­est laser colour printer in the world and also the planet’s most en­ergy ef­fi­cient one. While th­ese are claims we can’t ver­ify, there were a few things that left us im­pressed.

Un­like many print­ers that take a lot of time for in­stal­la­tion, this one was re­ally quick to setup. From un­pack­ing to in­stal­la­tion, ev­ery­thing was done in less than five min­utes. In­ter­est­ingly, it also has HP Smart In­stall tech­nol­ogy on­board that elim­i­nates the use of CD for in­stalling the driv­ers. The printer had driv­ers on­board that did the job when con­nected to the PC. Aimed at small of­fices and home users, this printer is com­pact and can eas­ily fit in any spare cor­ner.

Used for both mono­chrome and coloured prints, the Laser Jet Pro 1025 pro­duces qual­ity prints. While test­ing, it man­aged to print 13 mono­chrome prints a minute and eight colour pages. Also, when not in use for some time, the printer goes into the pow­er­saver mode. But with a print com­mand it quickly turns on and does the job.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT?

A good laser printer for a small or home of­fice.
