More Information for New Catalog Users


The HP DeskJet 540 and DeskWriter 540 are black/grayscale, drop-on-demand thermal inkjet printers. They both also have color capability with the optional HP color kit and Color Print Cartridge. The HP color kit provides up to 16.7 million colors, for rich, bright and beautfiul color printing. Naturally, you will get the sharpest of blacks from the black cartridge too. With three choices of print quality (Best Mode, Normal Mode, and Economode), you can print to suit your needs— from a quick draft to presentation quality documents, on plain or glossy paper, transpariencies, special papers, transparencies, and a variety of media in U.S. and international sizes. Best quality blacks are printed up to 600x300 dpi, and presentation colors at 300x300 dpi.

The difference between these two models is in their compatibility. The DeskJet 540 has a centronics parallel interface and PCL Level 3 for Windows and DOS computers; and the DeskWriter 540 has a serial 57.6 Kbps interface with AppleTalk for Macintosh computers.
