The five-page black text print took 54 seconds to complete, which is equivalent to a speed of 5.56 ppm. When we increased the run to 20 pages, the speed in fact dropped to 5.31 ppm, because of these pauses. This speed is approximately the 3 runs we measured. The five-page black text and colour graphics test took 2 minutes 23 seconds, a speed of simply 2.10 ppm. A 15 x 10cm picture print on A4 paper took a sensible 1 minute 29 seconds.
The quality of the print recreated, as you might expect, was similar to exactly what we saw from the DeskJet printer. Black text is dark and dense, however there is some fuzziness around characters, especially pushed ones, indicating feathering into the paper fibres. This is only small, though.
Colour graphics are intense and eye-catching, with no obvious indications of dither patterns though a colour photocopy did show some lightening of colours, however is still really usable. A picture, on HP's Advanced Image Paper, was well replicated, with natural colours, smooth gradations and excellent levels of detail, even in darker, shadowed locations.
The running expenses of this maker are identical to those from the Deskjet D5560, releaseding a page cost of 3.96 p for an ISO black page and 8.97 p for ISO colour. These costs are both high in contrast to the device's direct competitors, one penny per page or a bit more, depending on the page material.
