One major most used and costly is electric power these days which is required to run the device like printer and other computing hardware. HP has always been a leader in innovation when it comes to changing printer technology with respect to latest upcoming challenges.

HP Laserjet Pro P1108 Features
How Does HP Laserjet Pro P1108 Saves Power & Become Efficient ?
Power Saver Feature
It is powered with HP Auto-On/Auto-off technology which senses senses all printing activity, turning the device on when users need it and off when they don’t. It will turn off after 5-6 minutes once you fire the print command, unless another print command is fired after that. This way it saves all the energy and become most energy efficient laser printer.
Note: Even when it is in auto off mode, the time lag to resume printing when you have given the print command is in milliseconds which makes it functional all the time even when it not drawing any power. When it goes to auto off mode it does not draw any power from power port and saves a lot of electricity.
HP Smart Install
One of the most common task which consumes a lot of time when you would want to install a printer, is when you need to install the printer drivers from the cd which usually takes a good amount of time. Where as this printer comes up with HP smart install in which there is no need need for a CD to install the printer drivers on any Windows® PC. It takes less than 2 minutes to start printing from the moment the printer is plugged into the USB port of a PC.
It comes with full toner which helps save costs by printing up to 1500 pages with a single cartridge.
HP Smart Web Printing
It also comes up with HP smart web printing which help you select and print the selected area of a webpage rather than printing the entire page and there by saves a lot paper wastage. It does cuts down on paper wastage by automatically scaling the web page output to fit the width of paper.
