The fastest color office printer in the world is cheaper than you think

Image Description

HP PageWide Pro 552dw printer - $549.99 direct
(AU$872.00/circa £420.00)
This futuristic-looking monster from HP can churn out a whopping 70 pages per minute, making it the fastest colour inkjet printer out there. It's currently available at a cut-price rate, so grab it while you can.View Deal

If you're looking for a new printer, the HP PageWide Pro 552dw could well be the one for you. Although it’s been around for nearly four years now, it still holds the record for the fastest colour inkjet printer you can buy off the shelf, with a print speed of 70 pages per minute (ppm).

There are far faster options around, like the Riso GD9630 (which reaches 160ppm), but these cost more than $28,000 a piece and take up a whole room's worth of space. In contrast, the 552dw costs 1/50th that amount and fits easily on a desk.

It reaches its maximum speed when printing in black and draft, with the ppm score dropping to around 50 when printing in color, which is still mightily fast. HP achieved this speed by using a head that prints the whole width of an A4 page, hence the printer's name.

This is first and foremost an office printer, which means its native printing resolution is lower than you’d get from a photo printer (600 x 600 dpi).

It has two paper trays as standard, 512MB memory and offers a wide variety of connectivity options as standard (NFC, Wireless, USB 2.0 port, 10/100Mbps Ethernet).

The 552dw also comes with one-year, onsite warranty and support, which can be extended by a further two years for an extra $139.

Note, the recommended monthly page volume is up to 6000 pages, so it's best not to exceed that figure. There's also an A3 equivalent available.

  • McAfee could go private in $14bn deal

    McAfee’s short spell on the public stock market seems to be ending, as the antivirus company could be going private once again. 

    As reported by Reuters, global private equity firm Advent International, together with a handful of other parties, is negotiating a buyout of the company, reportedly worth more than $14 billion, including debt.

    Reuters cited two people “briefed on the negotiations,” who said the negotiations were in advanced stages.  McAfee currently has total debt of roughly $4 billion, which would put its equity value at more than $10 billion. Advent International aside, other names mentioned in the report include private equity firm Permira; Canadian pension plan CPP Investment Board; Crosspoint Capital; Abu Dhabi Investment Authority; and Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC.

    At press time, neither the company nor its potential investors have commented on the news. 

    Shares reacting to the news

    The market, however, voiced its opinion pretty loudly, with the company’s shares shooting up more than 20%, putting McAfee’s total value at $10.9 billion.

    McAfee’s history has been as colorful as that of its founder, John McAfee. First established in 1987, it quickly rose to become one of the world’s most popular antivirus software providers. In 2010, Intel bought it for $7.7 billion, and six years later, sold a 51% stake to private equity firm TPG Capital for $4.2 billion.

    In 2017, TPG sold part of its stake to private equity firm Thoma Bravo, and three years later, McAfee organized an Initial Public Offering (IPO), raising $740 million, which it used to repay debt.

    Earlier this year, it sold its enterprise business to Symphony Technology Group for $4 billion, and paid a $4.5 per share special dividend to its shareholders. 

    Should the deal come through, it would be one of the largest acquisitions made this year.
