With the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720, the manufacturer does more than just refresh the model series. The revised paper path speeds up duplex printing mode in particular. The touch display is large, easy to use and modern in design. In general, the multifunction printer is designed for throughput. It, therefore, competes with the classic color laser printers and combi devices. HP has completely redesigned the paper path of the printer. It is turned over in the printer and ends up face down in the paper catcher. The mechanism is reminiscent of a laser printer and has the advantage that the device loses less speed when it is used for automatic two-sided printing (duplex) since there is no need to retract the sheet after printing on the front. HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 comes from 10 text pages to 30 seconds in simplex printing and achieves a remarkable 42 seconds in the same task in duplex mode. Even though he only prints the last page printed on the front and back after a short break. The multifunction printer uses a new generation of inks that are pigmented throughout. It has the identification number HP 953 and offers several ranges, The standard cartridges should be sufficient for 1000 black and white and 700 color pages. In the XL variants, the cartridges offer ranges of 2000 pages in black and white and 1600 pages in color. The new inks do not bring big leaps in quality, but they change the print quality in detail. In-text printing and normal mode, the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 puts a lot of black ink on paper. However, the letters remain properly sharp, so legibility is good. Only on fine lines can we see that the coverage is too strong. The colors are usually very bright at HP. The manufacturer has somewhat withdrawn this from the new inks. Nevertheless, there is little to complain about in the mixed documents with text, graphics, and photos. It delivers very sharp scans that overdo blue and green. Overall, however, the scan results are convincing. The touch display is the control center for the stand-alone operation of the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720. It is strongly based on a smartphone display. For quick access, a bar can be wiped down from above, which makes functions such as settings, WLAN, NFC, cloud services and ink information directly accessible. The bottom bar of the display is intended for the basic talents of printing, scanning, and copying. In the middle are the icons for additional applications such as scanning on a USB stick or copying ID cards. The latter is somewhat peculiar. The touch screen responds very quickly to finger pressure and offers enough space for finger commands on every menu level. A maximum of 250 sheets fit in the paper tray of the multifunction printer. The tray is designed for up to 150 sheets. It is very commendable that the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 not only prints on both sides, but also scans. The connections include USB, WLAN, and LAN. At the same time, the device can be addressed via NFC and Wi-Fi Direct and offers a USB host interface. In addition to the in-house service HP ePrint, mobile printing works via Apple Airprint, Google Cloud print and the app “HP AiO Remote”. In addition, direct access to cloud services such as Google Drive can be established via HP Connected.
