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.

When it goes to auto off mode it does not draw any power from power port and saves a lot of electricity.

  6. Sumit Gupta says

    I think if printers can print a paper with a special kind of ink which could be reused once the print paper job is over.

  7. Aditya says

    If printers can process printed paper and recycle it to produce more paper, however this may sound to vague – but with great enggineering and imagination it can be done

  8. Prateek says

    I would say, one the best approach to make printers eco friendly is to stop using them and start using digital devices to read and display the information required to be printed.
