Design thought for comfort

HP OfficeJet 200

HP OfficeJet 200 is one of the few models that has an integrated battery

As can be seen in the images that accompany this analysis, the model in question adopts a fairly classic style with a black surface that includes a rectangular format with rounded edges. Their overall dimensions are 364 x 186 x 69 mm, while the total weight with battery included is 2.2 kilograms, well below the market average.

Logically, its paper input tray can be folded when not in use to be transported more comfortably, while there is no lack of a series of touch buttons to make the configuration and execution of actions more easily, in addition to a 2.0-inch high-resolution monochrome LCD panel to see everything that is happening more clearly.

It is worth noting that despite its ability to function completely wirelessly, the classic USB 2.0 port can be used to synchronize with a computer and print in the traditional way. The Windows operating system is supported in its versions 10, 8.1, 8 and 7 of 32 bits or 64 bits, as well as Mac OS X v10.11 El Capitan, OS X v10.10 Yosemite and OS X v10.9 Mavericks.

Print quality for the few demanding

HP OfficeJet 200

HP OfficeJet 200 gains in portability but loses in performance

As is to be expected, the size reduction means that some of the best technical features of the most complete printers in the industry have to be neglected. Here not only the copy and scan function is conspicuous by its absence, but also that its Recommended monthly duty cycle of 100 to 300 pages makes it clear that you are targeting personal use that doesn’t require too much activity.

In quality you can indicate the support for a native resolution up to 4800 x 1200 optimized dpi color (when printing from a computer and 1200 input dpi), including a waiting time for the first page of 12 seconds regardless of whether the built-in battery or power connection is used.

Where there are changes is in the printing speed, because HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile reaches 20 ppm black on AC and down to 18 ppm on battery (general office mode), while when working in color it drops slightly to 19 ppm with current use and up to 17 ppm with its internal battery.

Finally, the presence of a 50-page paper input tray with support for most conventional industry sizes (A4; A5; A6; B5 (ISO); B5 (JIS); envelopes (A2; C5; C6; DL); photographic (10 x 15 cm; L; 2L); Japanese postcard; Ofuku Hagaki).

Wireless connectivity and benchmarks

HP OfficeJet 200

HP OfficeJet 200 lets you print documents from your phone

Once again the inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows remote printing from any compatible device, be it a computer, phone or tablet. And it is that in these last cases the App from the manufacturer HP ePrint that allows you to configure the printer without problems and execute actions from a mobile with Android and iOS operating system.

In conclusion, if you want to opt for portability over performance, there is no doubt that you are dealing with a high quality device. Otherwise, computers such as HP 7110 double in size and much heavier, yet offer a vastly higher duty cycle with up to 12,000 pages per month and 250-sheet input support to help increase efficiency when workloads are high.
