HP LaserJet 5P and 5MP Printers
The HP LaserJet 5P and 5MP printers were released March 6, 1995.
These printers are similar to the HP LaserJet 4P printer except that
they are designed to run faster, have an MP paper tray in place of the
manual feed slot, and have a reduced control panel similar to the
HP LaserJet 4L printer. The HP LaserJet 5P / 5MP printer’s maximum
print speed is 6 pages per minute (HP LaserJet 4P runs at 4 ppm)
and has a print resolution of 600 dpi.
Another new feature on this printer is an IrDA-compliant infrared serial
I/O port located on the front of the printer.
PCL operation is almost identical to that of the HP LaserJet 4 Plus
printer. (Refer to Table 1-1, HP LaserJet Printer Feature Comparison,
for the specific PCL implementation.)
