HP OFFICEJET PRO 8620
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.
