1 Production costs savings based on an HP PageWide XL 5100 Printer compared with a combination of a mid-volume monochrome LED printer and a mid-volume color production printer (both under $40,000 USD) as of April, 2017. Production costs consist of supplies and service costs, printer energy costs, and operator costs. For testing criteria, see
2 Based on internal HP testing on the HP PageWide XL 5100 Printer compared to preparing and printing the job on two different printers (one comparable monochrome mid-volume LED printer for the monochrome pages and one color printer for the color pages). For testing criteria, see
3 HP PageWide XL pigment inks are certified per the ISO 11798 Permanence and Durability standard, proving that prints made with HP PageWide XL printers using Original HP PageWide XL pigment inks withstand harsh exposure to light, water, abrasion, and handling, and long-term storage and heat, and remain legible in the future. For more information, see
4 ISO/US technical and offset standards include American ANSI and Architectural page size standards, ISO A technical document standard, and ISO B offset page size standard.
5 Based on supplies and service costs. Monochrome technical document printing costs for comparable mid-volume LED printers based on printers for large-format printing of technical documents at speeds between 8 and 13 D/A1 per minute as of July, 2017 which represent more than 80% of the share of mid-volume LED printers in the US and Europe in 2017 according to IDC. Color technical document printing costs for comparable mid-volume color printers based on printers capable of printing 4 D/A1 pages per minute or more and under $50,000 USD for large-format printing of technical documents as of July, 2017 and representing more than 80% of the market in the US and Europe in 2017 according to IDC.
