HP CP5225 in More Detail

Offering comprehensive support for work environments wishing to produce and print A3 size marketing materials and brochures, the CP5225 from HP is a valuable addition to offices of all sizes. Capable of printing almost anything and everything from postcards to posters – the machine offers crisps output, fast speeds and simplicity of use.

Increased Print Volumes

Capable of supporting monthly print volumes of up to 5,000 sheets and a print speed up to 20ppm – the CP5225 can help accommodate office environments which require continuous prints. The first page print speed of 18 seconds accommodates instant printing – reducing downtime and the potential for the development of backlogs.

Never neglecting quality, the printer benefits from HP ColorSphere toners and the high quality colours they can produce.

The high clarity potential of the printed output makes the printer perfect for the production of glossy posters and brochures.

Simplified Use

Creating high quality A3 posters needn’t be a complicated and convoluted process requiring a degree in engineering and design. The CP5225 is an incredibly simple printer to fully utilise – with an easy-to-use control panel with one-touch functionality.

The high speed USB 2.0 connectivity and 540MHz processor can accommodate easy work team sharing throughout the office.

  • Owen Jackson 15 January 2014 3.5 / 5 Value 3 Features 4 Quality 3 Performance 4 HP CP5225 Review

    I was recommended this printer by a friend. I found the set up of the CP5225 very difficult. Print quality is ok but not as good as a similar priced Xerox I saw the other day. I will probably upgrade the machine later this year as we are now printing a lot more.

  • Toby Reynolds 10 January 2012 4 / 5 Value 4 Features 4 Quality 4 Performance 4 Reliable and decent quality

    We needed to find a printer to print fairly high quantities of colour A3 twice a year. We chose this printer party because we like HP printers and partly because of it's reasonable price. After a bit of tinkering we got set the colour levels and are happy with the results. The printer will have easily paid for itself in the first year, so we're very happy with it.
