HP Color LaserJet 1600

Hewlett-Packard (HP) (Freeware)

The HP Color LaserJet 1600 belongs to a line of printers developed by Hewlett-Packard.  The printer was released in 2007 and is designed for small or home office use. This model exudes a functionalist approach with its basic design and basic control panel made up of two LED indicators, an LCD display, and four buttons. For the printer to function properly, the driver for it must first be installed in the user’s computer.

The driver installs the necessary components in the computer that allows the user to send print jobs to the printer and customize the paper size, print quality, media type, and color options. The driver also includes provisions for adding watermarks, printing multiple pages on a single sheet of paper, and guidance on manual duplexing as well as printing on both sides of the paper.

The driver lets users control print jobs . Users can select the specifics of their print jobs through the Page Setup dialog box and the Print dialog box. Users can set the source tray of the paper or other media to print on, the type, and the size. Users can also change the color settings and print their documents or photos in grayscale. Users can also check their printer’s ink levels to see whether they should have replacement cartridges ready.
