— Have It Your Way! —
Whatever Your Department Needs, the 5Si Can Be Built to Deliver

If the HP 4Si is a pedigreed workhorse, the HP LaserJet 5Si is like a team of them, with its 40 MHz processor and 24 ppm engine! Building on the award-winning success of the 4Si, the versatile 5Si takes high-volume departmental network printing to further heights of speed, quality, and efficiency. It is fast, robust and intelligent, with HP Admin printer management software and other enhancements that make printing easier for both users and administrators. It also comes with two empty MIO slots for HP JetDirect cards or third-party print servers. And the LaserJet 5Si offers paper-handling and network options that let you build exactly the printer that matches your needs!

The super, network-ready LaserJet 5Si NX is a complete 5Si especially configured for PCL printing in an Ethernet 10Base-T environment.

Do you have Macintoshes or a mixed platform environment? The 5Si MX is the one for you! It's a 5Si with built-in Adobe PostScript Level 2 and HP JetDirect card for Ethernet/LocalTalk.

In addition to these fine network printing solutions, you can turn the HP LaserJet 5Si into a hard-working, 5Si Mopier that delivers high-volume Multiple Original Prints (Mopies) with ease.
