Back-Lit Menu System:
Easy to read, but the navigation buttons are a
little stiff and unresponsive.
The HP LaserJet 2420dn is a
very 'businesslike' printer in appearance, for lack of a better way to
describe it. The printer is a nondescript beige and grey
box with pastel buttons. Wholly inoffensive and unremarkable, just as we've come to
expect from HP and business printers in general. It's not going to turn heads in
your office, but why would you want people looking too closely
at your $1000+ printer anyhow?
the control panel, a snazzy backlit monochrome LCD shows printer status
info and the setup menus.
Now let's take a moment to
explore the physical features and characteristics of this printer so that
you'll know what to expect.
The front of the 2420dn contains
both paper trays, numbered here (1) for the multipurpose pull out tray and (2) for
the 200-sheet paper cartridge. Both are easily opened and adjusted.
paper tray status meter is located on the bottom left, which will slowly move
towards empty as you use up
the paper in the tray. The only other front feature is
the ventilation fan.
Nothing of note here, besides
another cooling vent and a hand-hold for lifting the printer.
