We’ve reviewed many HP products in the past. Be it dedicated scanners, MFPs, or just inkjet printers. Today, we’ll be going over one of their printer lineups, the OfficeJet, and do a HP OfficeJet Pro 8022 review and find out how it fares in the printing department.
Obvious from the name alone, the 8022 is meant to be used in an office environemt and its design with the squared, business-looking, black and white is perfect for that. It’s quite large since its an all-in-one which means you’ll be needing a separate desk for it to sit on.
The 8022 uses the 2.6cm touchscreen to control the mfp. The only button you’ll be pressing ever with this thing would be its turn on button which can be a plus or negative depending on the person.
Personally, we all love the touchscreen more as its easier to use most of the time compared to the rather outdated physical buttons.
This HP OfficeJet Pro 8022 review wouldn’t be a review if we did not talk about its biggest strength, mono printing.
This MFP designed for office use is, as expected, does amazingly well for monochrome printing. It’s fast and any text appears rich and black from this printer. It of course fares somewhat worse with color printing as the output can look a bit desaturated compared to other printers.
But for an office printer, it’s more than enough.
Unfortunately, the 8022 is quite lackluster with scanning. It can only scan up to 600dpi at most despite being capable of 1200dpi.
But perhaps that’s for good reason because once we try to force it to scan at higher resolutions, the output came out jagged and just overall bad.
Being an office printer, the 8022 has all the features you could possibly want for your office work. Starting from automatic duplex printing through the ADF, wireless connectivity, HP Smart app support, all of that good jazz.
Printers that still use cartridge are often expensive to run, and while HP OfficeJet Pro 8022 is not cheap at all compared to supertank printers, it is fairly cheaper compared to other cartridge printers.
It has a 2.6p for mono pages and 5.5p for color pages. Both of these scores are not bad by any means, but they’re definitely expensive compared to supertank printer. Still, for a traditional printer such as this one, we’ll definitely take it.
To wrap-up this HP OfficeJet Pro 8022 review, the product only becomes really recommendable when you’re needing a printer solely for mono printing alone.
It’s not a bad printer by any means, and it’s quite cheap in both initial and upkeep cost, but there are definitely better options out there. So, again, if your office find itself needing to print lots and lots of mono pages every day, the HP OfficeJet Pro 8022 is up to the task and will be a good bang for your buck overall.
