Surprisingly, though, the HP OfficeJet 4650 made copies that didn’t quite match the fine details and stronger dark shades of the Envy 5540’s copies. (You’d think something with „Office“ in its name might handle this common workplace task with more aplomb.) Also, the OfficeJet’s grayscale copies had speckled textures and rough midtone transitions. More disappointing, the quality of black-and-white copies degraded further when using the OfficeJet 4650’s automatic document feeder . A few models failed to produce all the fine details in very dark shadow areas of our landscape photo (admittedly a little something of a torture test since it’s a sunset scene with very dark shadows). The Epson XP-640 made prints with shadow areas that looked flat, lacking subtle details, while the Canon TS6020 and HP 5540 offered some details in the shadowy areas.

However, HP printers fare better than Canon in case of color copies. Similarly, Epson printers such as XP-640 are the ideal choice for printing photos. Canon laser printers are the fastest at printing both text and black-and-white graphics. For example, the Canon ImageClass MF217W prints graphics and text at a speed of 12.2 ppm and 15.9 ppm respectively. By contrast, The HP LaserJet Pro M127fw prints graphics at a speed of 6.1 ppm only. However, its text printing speed is slightly higher at 13.5 ppm.

Professional photographers who want a higher resolution should look at 2880 by 1440 dpi or higher. Unfortunately it’s always an estimate and I think sometimes they show less than is actually left. There isn’t a way to get the exact amounts I’m afraid.
