HP OF­FICE­JET PRO 8620

HWM (Singapore) - - TEST -

In terms of size the Of­fice­jet Pro 8620 is the largest here, so it might be a bit dif­fi­cult for those with limited real es­tate in their of­fices. The Of­fice­jet Pro 8620 is in the mid­dle of the pack when it comes to pa­per han­dling, with a 250-sheet in­put tray as well as a 50-sheet au­to­matic doc­u­ment feeder. It also comes with a print du­plexer, so there’s no need to flip the pages your­self when print­ing dou­ble-sided doc­u­ments. You can also scan doc­u­ments to and print from a USB flash drive. You can connect the HP Of­fice­jet Pro 8620 to your of­fice net­work through Wi-Fi or Eth­er­net, and print di­rectly from your iOS or An­droid smart­phone or tablet. And even if there’s no net­work in your of­fice, you can still print from your smart­phone or tablet as the printer has Wire­less Di­rect, which is HP’s own form of Wi-Fi Di­rect. One thing unique about the Of­fice­jet Pro 8620 is that it comes with near-field com­mu­ni­ca­tion (NFC), so in the­ory you can just tap an NFC-en­able smart­phone to print a doc­u­ment or file. The Of­fice­jet Pro 8620 opts for a 4.3-inch touch­screen con­trol panel, mak­ing it the largest among the three prin­ters tested. It’s gen­er­ally easy to nav­i­gate the printer’s in­ter­face, though for scan­ning you will have to use the desk­top soft­ware to do so. While this ap­proach of­fers you more con­trol over your scanned files, it does de­lay the scan­ning process if you want to scan some­thing with­out ad­just­ing any set­tings.
