I’m a bit of a technology junkie when it comes to new gadgets, and I’m proud to present our new printer, the HP Deskjet 2540 Printer. Today, I printed things I’d been needing to for awhile, amongst them wheelchair and cushion information, and Camp NaNoWriMo winner’s certificates. I printed two certificates, one for my April 2015 novel Family Ties, and one for this month’s poetry book, Musings of a Powerchair Princess. I “won” Camp NaNoWriMo in April by reaching my word count goal, and didn’t print a certificate at the time. I have met my word count goal this time, too- I just need to wait for the validation period to start in a week’s time so I can get my word count officially checked.
Back to the printer- Hewlett Packard ( HP) is a brand of printer I really trust. This isn’t the first HP printer I’ve owned, I was provided with one by an assistive technology specialist (as well as a large bulky desktop computer) in the summer of the year 2000 just before I headed off to Swansea University – more about that and Swansea Uni in another post.
What I love about the HP Deskjet 2540 is the speed it prints at- my printing was done in no time at all really. I saved time looking for what I wanted to print online, and was able to print directly using the wireless connection from my iBooks PDF library, after selecting the pages I wanted as I didn’t want to print all the pages in some PDFs. Alfredo (my fiancé) was great at controlling the amount of paper and loading more when needed- something I can’t do because it requires more manual dexterity than I have, It’s at times like this that I feel we make a great team!
There’s also a scanner and you can photocopy too as it’s an all-in-one printer- no more expensive trips to the nearest place with a photocopier 🙂
Personally, I think the size is great, as its compact and doesn’t take up much space. The print quality is very professional looking.
Overall, it’s a great printer! When writing, I don’t print off an entire book during the editing process, because I like to save paper. so I get the “Read Aloud” function in Textilus to read it to me (reading causes me eyestrain, no matter how much I love it!)
If you’re reading this and are considering buying a new printer, I’d recommend this one no doubt.
