mybroadband.co.za reports that HP Inc. is bringing its high-capacity ink-tank color-inkjet DeskJet GT 5820 and DeskJet GT 5810 All-in-Ones to South Africa. The new models are targeted at high-volume home users seeking a wireless ink-tank printer.
The HP DeskJet GT series prints up to 8,000 pages with a set of three HP color bottles, and up to 5,000 pages with an included HP black ink bottle.
HP’s ink-refill system is also said to be spill-free, clean, and easy, as the ink bottles can be plugged into ink tanks and disperse ink without any squeezing required. Because the ink tanks are transparent, users can also monitor ink levels.
The new HP DeskJet GT 5820 All-in-One printer is said to also make it easy for users working remotely to connect via smartphones and tablets. The printer can be set up out of the box using just a mobile device. Even without a wireless network, Wi-Fi direct enables users to directly connect their printer to their mobile device at home.
With the HP All-in-One Printer Remote app, users also send scanned documents to email, or to cloud storage sites through their mobile device. They can print from a variety of mobile devices including Apple iPhone and iPad using AirPrint, and via smartphones and tablets running Android, Microsoft Windows 8, Microsoft Windows 10, and Google Chrome operating systems.
The new HP DeskJet GT 5810 All-in-One is the same as the HP Deskejet GT 5820 All-in-One but doesn’t have wireless connectivity.
HP began rolling out the new ink-tank All-in-Ones in India and the Phillipines early last year. Last August, Wirth Consulting also completed a comprehensive test report detailing the performance of the HP ink-tank All-in-Ones versus other ink-tank models (see here).
