A look at the world’s fastest desktop printer, the HP Officejet Pro X 576dw

It used to be, if you wanted a fast printer for your small biz and also needed color, scanning, faxing and more, you were facing down a hefty price tag. No more! Today, inkjet printing technology has come so far that the world’s fastest desktop printer isn’t some fancy laser, but a high-tech version of the same inkjet tech you’ve probably used at home for years.

The HP Officejet Pro X 576dw, only available at Staples, isn’t just fast—its Guinness World Record-holding fast, an award it won for printing an astounding 500 sheets in just 7 minutes 19 seconds.

But speed is one thing, and not necessarily the most crucial factor when looking at a printer for you biz. So let me highlight three other features I love about this printer for small biz.

1. Built-in Apps

The large color touchscreen is your connection to not just the assorted functionality of the 576dw, but also a bunch of built-in apps. My favorite is the Google Drive app, which lets you sign in, access and print any document straight from the cloud. But there’s tons of apps available from HP’s ePrintCenter! You can do all kinds of things with these printer based apps, download and print fresh crossword puzzles daily, get pre-formatted ready-to-use office documents like cover sheets, invoices, and calendars, and even get the news delivered straight from sources like CNN, NBC, and the New York Times!

2. Multifunctionality

Not only is this a fast color printer, it’s also a copier, scanner and fax machine with built-in duplex. It’s got enterprise-level network connectivity built-in as well, with wireless printing not only throughout your office but from your smartphone or tablet too.

Plus, an easy-access USB port means you can just walk a document over to the 576dw and print, scan and fax documents to and from your drive.

3. Inkjet quality colors

On a color laser, you’ll get color but not the quality the HP Officejet Pro X 576dw provides, which you really need to impress clients with brochures, pamphlets, flyers, photos, and the dozens of other tasks where color inkjet printing excels.

Plus, with HP PageWide technology, you can print practically edge-to-edge on any sheet of paper in a single pass, a feature that’s almost impossible to find until you get into the range of high-end digital presses, which start in the thousands of dollars, not the hundreds.

So the next time you’re in a Staples buying ink or checking out some printers, be sure to give the HP Officejet Pro X 576dw a good look. It’s one deal your business might not be able to afford to miss.
