Overview
Specifics
Reliable and featurerich device with best
in class print quality,
all at an affordable
price
 Industry leading print quality - assessed by internal psychometric studies comparing
multiple print samples
 7.62 cm Magic Frame (fw bundle) provides unrivaled ease of use with additional
functionality such as web-connectivity and business apps such as Box, Dropbox,
GoogleDocs, FlowCM, and more
 ePrint provides the most extensive mobile print offering in industry, including Airprint and
“Mario” Android in-OS Printing, Wireless Direct, remote printing, and more.
 With HP’s Smart Install users do not need a CD – simply plug in USB cable and install.
 One-touch wireless install makes wireless setup a snap
 Auto-On/Auto-Off automatically turns the device on when you need it and off when you
don’t to save energy.
 Most energy efficient device amongst top competitors
 Adjust the angle of the control panel to ensure anyone can use the device
Cheaply built device
that defers extra
costs to the user in
terms of
consumables life
 Samsung includs an unlit, 2-line LCD control panel that is incredibly hard to read and is
not adjustable to different angles or heights
 Samsung’s device requires replacement of the fuser and the ITB after only 5K pages.
These are not user replaceable, require a service call, and the parts cost approximately
half the price of the device, not including service charges
 Samsung has added a connector to Google Cloud Print, but they still haven’t included
web-connectivity or apps to send or receive information independent of a PC or mobile
device
 Whereas Samsung quotes a monthly duty cycle of 20K pages, the recommended
monthly page volume is only 46 color pages! Compare that to up to 950 monthly pages
for HP!
 Samsung’s print quality out of the box is very poor. Moreover, users are expected to
remove and shake the cartridges to uniformly distribute toner.
 Samsung consumes over 2X the energy of HP (78.3 vs 37.2 kWh/yr)
 The Konica Minolta has more replacement parts than toner, users only have to replace
imaging drum for HP.
 The Konica Minolta laser scanner window is directly under toner carousel which gets
contaminated and must be manually cleaned
 Users must remove the sensitive OPC drum to clear paper jams, exposing it to possible
damage
 Consumes 5X more energy annually than HP (187.9 kWh vs. 37.2 kWh)
 The Konica Minolta magicolor has a 32% slower first-page-out time from energy save
mode – 37 seconds vs. 28 seconds for HP
Old device with poor
ease of use and
worst energy
consumption
amongst top
competitors
These devices share
the same Fuji-Xerox
engine. They
support fewere
features yet
consume more
energy while
emitting more noise.
 The imaging system of Dell/Fuji-Xerox devices is prone to inconsistent toner density and
mottled images. Because the OPC drum is irreplaceable, image quality tends to degrade
over the life of the product.
 Users are expected to maintain print quality by manually cleaning all 4 LED scanner
windows and the Color Toner Density Sensor
 Users must adjust the BTR charge and fuser temperature using a method of trial and
error to maintain proper print quality
 These devices only support paper up to 163 gsm, compared to 220 gsm for HP
 With less than half the processor speed and no support for advanced PDLs, these
devices will be slower processing complex jobs
 The ADF of these devices only holds 15 originals; vs 50 pgs for HP
 No support for web-connectivity, cloud connections, or business apps
 Despite claiming low noise and energy consumption with an LED based design, these
devices are louder (51 vs 49 db; based on Dell) and consume more energy (88.7(f) to
146.2(fw) vs 37.2 kWh/yr; based on Fuji-Xerox)
 The Fuji-Xerox device does not support network connectivity
