"The HP DesignJet 500 is a multi-function inkjet printer which is specially designed to meet the needs of small businesses. Its printing speed is not as good as most printers that you can get these days, but the quality of the prints that it can produce can still compete with more expensive printers. Aside from this, another problem that you may encounter when using the HP DesignJet 500 is that it lacks luster when it comes to compatibility with operating system and connectivity options. The size of the HP DesignJet 500 is not the smallest that you can get, but it is still small enough to fit in small spaces. This is the reason why there are a lot of people who choose a better printer with the same size, since this will allow them to get more value for the space that they are using. Another problem that you may encounter whenever you are using the HP DesignJet 500 is that it only works compatible with Windows. It would be much better if it also works with Mac and Linux to give you better flexibility. The connectivity of the HP DesignJet 500 can also be a disadvantage for some. It only uses parallel port, which is no longer being used by modern computers. However, you can still search HP supplies for adapters, or install JetDirect, which will give you better connectivity options. Although this problem can easily be solved, wouldn't it be better if you are going to get this option straight from the box? Moving on to the cost of operation, the HP 29 51629A Black Inkjet and the HP 49 51649A Color Inkjet can produce as much as 500 pages. This is where the HP DesignJet 500 makes up for all the disadvantages that you can get from it. The HP inkjets for this printer won't cost a lot and it will help you produce high quality prints without spending more than what you have allotted for printing. The speed of operation is one of the main problems of the HP DesignJet 500, and is considered as a trade-off for the low ownership cost. This printer can only print and copy 5 black pages per minute and 3 color pages per minute and it can send fax messages within 6 seconds. This is not the best, but is good enough for those who are looking for something that can deliver the needs of their business without spending a lot of money."
