HP Color LaserJet 2550 Series Printer - Product Features
This document describes the multiple printer configurations in the HP Color LaserJet 2550 series, as well as the features and benefits the printers provide. Additionally the location and layout of printer components and control panel buttons are discussed below.
The following sections describe the three different printer configurations.
HP color LaserJet 2550L
The HP color LaserJet 2550L printer is a four-color laser printer that prints letter-size pages up to 20 pages per minute (ppm) in black and white, A4-size pages up to 19 ppm, and it prints letter/A4-size pages at 4 ppm in color. It includes a PCL 6 printer driver and an HP postscript level 3 emulation print driver.

HP color LaserJet 2550Ln
The HP color LaserJet 2550n printer has the same features as the HP color LaserJet 2550L printer, except it includes an HP Jetdirect internal print server (supporting the TCP/IP protocol only) for connecting to a 10/100Base-T network. This model also accepts optional Tray 2 and optional Tray 3. (Optional Tray 2 must be installed in order to install optional Tray 3.)
HP color LaserJet 2550n
The HP color LaserJet 2550n printer has the same features as the HP color LaserJet 2550Ln printer and also includes Tray 2. This model also accepts optional Tray 3. This model comes standard with high-capacity color print cartridges that can print up to 4,000 pages.
Figure 2: HP Color LaserJet 2550n
The following sections describe the important features of the HP Color LaserJet 2550 series printers.
Provides laser printing in full color by using the four process colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK).
Fast print speed
Prints in black on letter-size paper up to 20 pages per minute (ppm) and on A4-size paper up to 19 ppm. Prints in color on A4/letter at 4 ppm.
Excellent print quality
Ease of use
Flexible paper handling
Printer driver features
Fast printing performance, built-in Intellifont and TrueType scaling technologies, built-in HP-GL/2 vector graphics, and advanced imaging capabilities are benefits of the PCL 6 printer language. The PCL 6 also includes 45 scalable TrueType fonts and one bitmapped Line Printer Font. The PCL 6 printer language also included.
HP postscript (PS) level 3 emulation language and fonts
Includes 35 built-in PS language fonts.
The printer automatically determines and switches to the appropriate printer language such as PS or PCL 6) for the print job.
NOTE: The internal print server in the HP Color LaserJet 2550Ln and 2550n model printers support the TCP/IP network protocol only.
Enhanced memory and memory expansion
The printer comes with 64 MB of memory and can be expanded to 192 MB by using the DIMM slot. Most documents can be printed with the standard amount of printer memory through the aid of Memory Enhancement technology (MEt). MEt automatically compresses data, virtually doubling the printer memory and accommodating more complex printing with available memory.
N-up printing (printing more than one page on a sheet) and two-sided printing using manual duplexing saves paper.
