Prints letter-size paper 19 pages-per-minute (ppm) or A4-size
paper 18 ppm (with Motorola RISC-based formatter).
Printing on both sides of paper (two-sided printing) is a standard
feature of the printer. (See Printing on Both Sides of Paper
True 1200 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) text and graphics.
Resolution Enhancement technology (REt) adjusts the size
and placement of each dot on the page to produce smooth
angles, curves, and edges (300 and 600 dpi only).
Adjustable settings to optimize print quality.
The HP UltraPrecise toner cartridge has a finer toner formulation
which provides sharper text and graphics.
Adjustable Tray 1 (pull-down) for letterhead, envelopes, labels,
transparencies, custom-sized media, postcards, and heavy paper.
See Loading Media into Tray 1.
Adjustable Tray 2 or an Optional 250-sheet Tray (Tray 3) for
standard sizes of paper. See Loading Media into Tray 2 or Optional
250-sheet Tray 3.
Optional 500-sheet Tray (Tray 3) for letter and A4-size paper.
See Loading Media into Optional 500-sheet Tray 3.
Two output bins: select either the top output bin or the rear
output bin for the most convenient output location.
Straight-through paper path capability from Tray 1 to the rear
Built-in duplexing. (See Printing on Both Sides of Paper
Optional Tray 3 (250-sheet or 500-sheet), so you will not have to
add paper as often.
Enhanced Input Output (EIO) cards. See Interface Ports.
Dual In-line Memory Module (DIMM) slots for adding memory
Language and Fonts
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.
PCL 6 also includes 45 scalable TrueType fonts and one
bitmapped Line Printer Font.

PS Language and
PostScript Level 2 emulation with 35 built-in PS language
When optional printer languages (such as PostScript Level 2
emulation) are installed, the printer automatically determines
and switches to the appropriate language for the print job.
The printer supports wireless printing from an IrDA-compliant
device, such as a notebook computer, camera, cell phone,
or a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA).
Bidirectional ECP type-B parallel port (IEEE-1284 compliant)
Wireless Fast Infrared port (IrDA compliant)
The printer provides an EIO slot for HP JetDirect EIO print servers
for fast and easy connectivity.
The HP LaserJet 2200 series printers come with 8 MB of memory
and can be expanded to 72 MB with the two available memory
(DIMM) slots. (The HP LaserJet 2200dtn has 16 MB and one
available DIMM slot.) Most documents can be printed using the
standard amount of printer memory through the aid of Memory
Enhancement technology (MEt). MEt automatically compresses
data, virtually doubling the printer’s memory and allowing more
complex printing with available memory.
The printer automatically conserves electricity by substantially
reducing power consumption when not printing.
As an E
partner, Hewlett-Packard Company has
determined that this product meets E
for energy efficiency.
N-up printing and two-sided printing with the built-in duplexer saves
paper. (See Printing on Both Sides of Paper (Duplexing) and
Printing Multiple Pages on One Sheet of Paper (N-up Printing).)
EconoMode saves toner.
For tips on reducing the amount of paper use or extending the life of
the toner cartridge, see Printing Tasks.
