Printers have been around roughly for quite some time now. While the technology that they use has changed significantly, their basic work remains the same. The first generation of printers was called the dot matrix and they were very loud and produced basic quality images. They were followed by the generation of printers that we have come to know today. They are inkjet printers and laser printers. But like all other printers, they can be heavy and require a significant amount of money for maintenance.

 

While buying and owning a laser printer can become an expensive affair, inkjet printers provide us with the best of both worlds. Compared to laser printers, inkjet printers are less expensive and are also easier and cheaper to maintain and operate. Characters and images are formed by very small jets of ink that spray ink on the paper. These printers have made printing accessible to everyone as they are fairly inexpensive than their laser counterparts.

HP is a reputed brand in the world of consumer electronics and when it comes to printers, they have a fair share of experience. Currently, their 400 series ink tank printers, which were newly designed, are dominating the market.

DESIGN

A printer mainly sits on our office desk and doesn’t seem like a thing of aesthetic appeal. But as it is the trend with every other thing nowadays people seem to have a thing for a good and aesthetic design. They want their products to look minimal and subtle which is far better than the clunky and boxy printers that came earlier. The same can be seen with the design language followed by HP.

 

The 410 has an elegant, minimal yet eye-catchy design. It is the first printer from the 400 series and is also the cheapest. Its design is one of the most noticeable features. It is compact as well as rigid. The body is made up of strong and sturdy plastic. Its compact and small size makes it easier for storage and operation. The dimensions of the laptop are 525 x 310 x 158 mm. This printer weighs around kilograms. The ink tank in the printer is a separate unit and is attached as an extension. The top also houses a small LCD screen. This screen is around 1.2 inches in size and usually displays all the vitals of the printer. It shows information like the number of pages, wireless connectivity strength, ink levels, errors, and other information which is necessary for the operation of a printer. Below this display screen, we have a panel that houses all the buttons that will be required to operate the printer.
