Gain efficiency with up to 20 ppm and an eight second first-page-out
Professional business
performance
Experience HP LaserJet quality. Create professional documents with 1200
by 1200 dpi output and copy speeds of up to 20 ppm (letter) or 19 ppm
(A4). Reduce time waiting by the product and give your business the
polished image you need to make the right impression.
Fast first-page out with
Instant-on Technology
Studies have shown that most printing devices like the HP LaserJet 3380
sit idle an average of one hour between print jobs. This means that the
first-page-out print speed is more important than pages per minute. Unlike
competing products, the HP LaserJet 3380 has an inductive heat fuser
that virtually eliminates warm-up time from both the Ready and
PowerSave states. The first-page-out print speed is eight seconds for a
typical office document. Because warm-up time is minimized, the product
consumes less energy, is quieter, and realizes less wear on the engine.
Easily handles complex
printing jobs
Even complex jobs print quickly with the powerful 240 MHz processor
and 32 MB of built-in memory (expandable to 96 MB for even higher
performance). The powerful PCL 6 and PCL 5e printer drivers, as well as
HP PostScript level 2 emulation, provide fast and dependable printing
from virtually any application.
Productive scanning

Evaluating laser all-in-one products
Evaluation
Product performance involves more than the number of pages that may be printed or copied in a
minute. Rather, product performance encompasses each function of the product, and how these
functions work independently and in concert with each other for a productive, reliable hardcopy
solution. Several factors affect product performance, including memory capabilities, fax modem
speed, use of special media, computer processing time, and print processing time.
Copier performance evaluation
High resolution does not directly correlate to copy quality. Copy the type of material you typically
copy, whether a book, magazine, sales brochure, or other high-quality content.
! Does the copy quality meet your expectations?
! How easy is it to adjust image quality and select output options from the control panel?
! How quickly does the page copy?
! Does it take multiple adjustments and multiple copies to get good copy quality?
Scanner performance evaluation
Scan several documents, images, and photos.
! How easy it to configure scanning options from the product control panel?
! Is the scanning software easy to use? Are there options for scanning specific document and
image types?
! Does the quality of the scanned image meet your expectations? How easy is it to obtain a
satisfactory image?
Fax performance evaluation
Fax some test documents.
! Is the fax function easy to use?
! What are the speed-dial options?
! Does the fax quality meet your expectations?
! Is it easy to store fax pages on the device?
! Do you encounter any problems sending or receiving faxes?
Printer performance evaluation
Creating print samples
First, develop a group of sample documents that represent what the end-user will print with the
product. This is the best method for determining if a product is suited to your environment.
Note
It is important to test files like those that a typical user will print. Most print samples
included with a product have been optimized for that product and may not reflect the type
of output you will receive.
When evaluating performance, your print samples should include multiple documents and file
types, each created in the applications that will be used by the end-user. The samples should have
different elements (text, graphics, and photographic images) and should vary in complexity and
page length. Some suggested content includes simple text documents, mixed text and graphics,
and complex graphics containing photographic images.
Evaluating laser all-in-one products
9
CAUTION!
Using only one application or file can skew test results. Use several types of files
and applications to present a broad and realistic performance picture.
Simple—text only
Mixed—from complex text
to a mixture of text and
medium-complexity graphics
Complex—images and
advanced graphics (using
overlays or fill patterns)
Different manufacturers provide different print modes (such as EconoMode). Try to compare similar
modes to achieve a fair comparison.
To evaluate the print quality and speed of text documents, such as those created in Microsoft
Word and Excel, you should print them in different print modes. Documents such as newsletters
intended for circulation or image files, where photo quality is desired, are preferably printed in the
best mode.
Print sample evaluation guidelines
Before you print the sample documents, make sure that your test environment simulates the
end-user’s and that you make a fair comparison between products. Follow the guidelines below:
Measure performance from the end-user’s perspective.
•
Print from computer systems that closely match the typical end-user’s.
•
Test multiple media sizes and types.
•
Test printing features (manual duplexing, multiple pages per sheet, etc.).
•
Test and compare default settings. (What settings will the end-users use most often?)
When evaluating more than one product, it is crucial that you make a fair comparison between
products.
•
Print from identical computer systems so that variations in speed are not due to differences in
processing power.
•
Print the same files on all products, using the same print media and the same or equivalent
settings. Print modes such as ProRes 1200 and EconoMode need to be tested separately for
each product and compared respectively.
•
The HP LaserJet 3380 includes five print modes:
Note
10
The available print modes may vary depending upon your operating system. Those
included below are available with Windows 2000 or XP.
•
ProRes 1200 180 lines per inch (lpi) (Best Quality): This setting produces 1200 by
1200 dpi resolution and provides the smoothest shades of gray and the sharpest lines.
•
ProRes 1200 141 lpi: This setting produces 1200 by 1200 dpi resolution with fewer lines
per inch. This setting may require less memory and print more quickly.
Evaluating laser all-in-one products
•
•
FastRes 1200 (Faster printing): This setting produces 600 by 600 dpi enhanced with
HP REt, which prints at 2-bits per pixel creating additional levels of gray. The print quality
is markedly better than traditional 600 dpi, but prints much faster than
1200 by 1200 dpi. This is the default print setting.
•
600 dpi
•
EconoMode (Save Toner): Documents are printed with less toner. This setting is useful
when you are printing drafts. You can use this setting independently of other print-quality
settings.
Use the same operating system and software application and be sure to test comparable
printer drivers. (Each of these components interacts with the printing process and can affect
performance.)
Evaluating printing performance
Using the samples that you created, perform the following tests to gauge printing performance.
First-page-out—The time from when the print command is issued to a product that is in sleep mode
until the completion of the first page. This test measures the effect of an instant-on fuser and shows
a product’s true speed.
Click-to-drop—The time from when the print command is issued until the completion of the print
job.
Pick-to-drop—The time from when the first piece of media is picked up by the product until the
completion of the print job.
Return-to-application—The time from when the print command is issued until the time when the
computer is available for other tasks.
Follow the guidelines below when measuring printing performance:
•
Be sure to measure the amount of time it takes to print a complete document. (For example,
you might print an eight-page document with a company logo on the first page.)
Note
A professional printing product is designed to print multiple-page documents. We suggest
that you print either multiple-page documents or multiple copies of a single page.
•
Record any error messages.
•
Perform each test three times to obtain an average. If the variances in the three tests are too
much, discard the result, check the system, and redo the test.
•
If the product offers more than one I/O port, perform tests using each port.
•
Look at each page to make sure all text and graphics printed correctly. Files that print
significantly faster on one product might not be printing correctly. Some products drop
complex graphics and images when they are unable to process the whole job. Examine output
to ensure that the entire document printed and that it printed correctly.
•
When comparing the performance of products, look beyond the speed trial data and consider
the acceptability of the output. There are definitely tradeoffs in print quality, but as you review
your results, look at the samples and consider whether the quality meets your standards. Also,
make sure that toner is adhering to the paper properly.

Print and copy quality
Enhance your professional image with 1200 by 1200 dpi
Sharp, clear,
professional
documents
Impress your clients with the professional print quality of the
HP LaserJet 3380, which provides 1200 by 1200 dpi printing and
600 by 600 dpi copying resolution.
Designed for
consistent, high-quality
results
HP’s all-in-one print cartridge, with its advanced toner formulation and
imaging components, is specifically designed for the HP LaserJet 3380 to
ensure consistently crisp, sharp text and precise detail.
Advanced toner
formula
The organically grown toner has small particles that are more uniform and
spherical than traditional manufactured toners. The small toner size results
in fine, precise detail on printed images.
HP LaserJet technology
produces durable,
smudge free output
HP LaserJet output is water-fast, can’t be scratched or peeled off, will not
fade, and can easily be fed through a copier.
Evaluation
There are many factors to consider when evaluating the overall quality of a product’s output. Print
quality is more than the number of dots per inch that the product places on a page; a higher dpi
does not necessarily mean better print quality.
This section offers some practical advice for conducting your own print quality evaluation.
Printing samples
It is important to test files like those that are printed in your workplace. Most print quality files or
print samples included with a product have been optimized for that product and may not reflect
the type of output you will receive. You might want to use the print samples that you created for
evaluating printing performance. See “Creating print samples” on page 9. Follow these guidelines
for printing sample documents:
•
12
When evaluating more than one product’s print quality, it is crucial that you make a fair
comparison between products. Print the same files on all products, using the same or
equivalent settings. Use the same operating system and software application, and be sure to
test comparable printer drivers. (Each of these components interacts with the printing process
and can affect print quality.)
Evaluating laser all-in-one products
•
Use more than one software application to make sure software/driver conflicts are not
affecting print quality.
•
Plain papers vary among brands and the regions in which they are manufactured. Some plain
papers have a preferred print side. You should also take into account storage conditions as
well as how the papers handle toner.
•
Temperature and humidity should be kept constant for each product tested. These factors can
have an impact on final print quality.
Viewing samples
Ideally, print quality should be evaluated under a mix of fluorescent and incandescent lighting.
Print quality should not be evaluated too close to windows, since natural light changes
dramatically with variations in weather and time of day.
In addition, the color of the surrounding area can significantly affect quality perception. White
surroundings may call undue attention to the color of the media. Medium or light gray is usually
the best choice for the area surrounding where the sample documents will be evaluated.
Individuals may perceive print quality differently. HP suggests that you have several people
evaluate your sample documents, in the same environment, with a consistent light source. Have
them vote on the samples that they like by listing them in order from the best to the worst. Allow
each person to rate the samples independently and then record the results. Also, have each person
establish a cut line for acceptable print quality for the end-user environment.
Note
This process is referred to as psychometric testing and should be performed on all of the
sample documents that you are using to evaluate text, graphics, and image quality.
Evaluating print quality
When you evaluate print quality, avoid magnification. Under magnification, insignificant
differences become huge. However, careful inspection is still necessary, and when doing this, look
for the following characteristics:
Text print quality—
! Text should be dark, not faded.
! Text should be solid black, without hollow spots.
! Edges should be crisp and smooth, not jagged.
! There should be little or no toner scattered on the non-printed areas of the paper.
! Reverse text should be fully visible, no toner filling lines.
! Portrait and landscape text should have the same print quality.
Evaluating laser all-in-one products
13
Graphics print quality—
! Fine lines should be distinct, not blending into each other or dropping out.
! Gray shading should go from light to dark in many layers, giving detail and depth to the
image.
! Solid black areas should be consistent to the eye with no patches of lighter shades or lines.
! Solid black areas should not appear glossy. This reduces readability.
! Check for banding. There should be no bands across graphics.
Missing lines,
bad detail
Distinct lines,
good detail
Image print quality—
! Images should be clear and sharp.
! There should be no bands across images.
! There should be no graininess or visibility of dots.

Evaluating document durability and usability
After you have finished evaluating the print quality of your samples, evaluate the documents’
durability and usability. Test the following:
! Can the printed output be fed through a copier without being damaged?
! Will the printed output fade over time or smear with moisture?
! Can the printed output be easily scratched, melted, or otherwise damaged?
! Is the printed output durable? Can it be folded?

Evaluation
At HP, we typically test multiple products in various environmental conditions to evaluate engine
reliability. We run the product to engine life and record the supply life, jam rate, and misfeed rate.
This kind of extensive, long-term testing is beyond the limits of most companies’ resources;
however, it is possible to estimate their product’s engine reliability. When comparing the
HP LaserJet 3380 with products from other manufacturers, consider the following:
! How durable is the product design?
! How easy is it to maintain the product?
! How many supplies do you need to have on hand? (Some competing products require multiple
supplies, such as toner, an image drum, and a corona wire cleaning kit. The image drum for
the HP LaserJet 3380 is included in the print cartridge, and no additional supplies are
required.)
! Does the product perform consistently under various environmental conditions?
! What is the product’s duty cycle?
! Were there any paper jams or other failures during your evaluation?

Evaluation
Today’s small workgroups need more than the ability to print and make photocopies. Connecting
to a network and the Internet via an always-on infrastructure provides access to printing e-services,
and allows users to print anything, anywhere, anytime, from any device. Proactive management
and easier troubleshooting reduce downtime and IT support costs, while increasing office
productivity.
When evaluating network capability, it is important to test the network solution for both the network
administrator and the end-user.
For the network administrator—
1. Determine if your network operating systems are supported.
2. Install and configure the product and administrative software, and simulate connecting endusers. (Keep track of the resources and time required, as well as ease of set up.)
3. Examine the following:
! Ease of network installation
! Network security
! Device diagnostics and troubleshooting
! Device alerts and status
! Device grouping, filtering, or mapping
Note
Try to assess the efficiency and convenience of the network management utilities.
For the end-user—
Make sure that the user can easily determine the following:
•
What devices are available?
•
What are their features?
•
What is the devices status?
•
Is my job done yet?
Note
22
The user does NOT want to know the status of all the devices on the network or diagnostic
information for all devices on the network.

A—Using the scanner and fax
Scanning
Use one of three methods to scan: scan from the HP LaserJet Scan software (or scan from Director,
if using Macintosh), scan from the device, or scan from TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant
software. Each is described below.
Scan from HP LaserJet Scan software
The procedure to start the HP LaserJet Scan software varies according to your system. Two of the
most typical steps follow:
•
From Windows, click Start, point to Hewlett-Packard, hp LaserJet 3380, and then click Scan.
•
Press Start Scan on the device. HP LaserJet Scan software opens on your computer. Pressing
Start Scan to start the HP LaserJet Scan software is not supported when the device is connected
to a network (direct-connect only).
To automatically scan to a folder, e-mail recipient, or software application, make the appropriate
selection when the HP LaserJet Scan software opens, as shown in Figure 1 below. To further
automate this process, you can save settings for folders or e-mail recipients using Quick Sets in the
HP LaserJet Scan software.
Figure 1. Selecting where to send scanned data
Appendix A—Using the scanner and fax
23
Once the software opens, the following screen appears, along with the image you have scanned,
as shown in Figure 2. You can choose to adjust the scanned image (resize, color adjustment,
resolution, etc.) and then choose to accept it or scan a new image.
Figure 2. HP LaserJet Scan software
Scan from HP Director (Macintosh)
Insert an original into the automatic document feeder to open the HP Director window. You can
also start the HP Director from the computer by clicking the HP Director Dock alias (Mac OS X only)
or desktop alias.
Scan from the device
You can scan directly from the device using the Scan to control panel button.
The device’s Scan to button is preconfigured to make scanning
simple. You can scan to the default folder on your computer:
My Documents/My Scans without returning to your computer.
Scanning to a folder
To scan documents to a folder on your computer, press the
Scan to button, and then use the arrow keys to select the
preconfigured, default folder on your computer: My
Documents/My Scans. You can also scan to a different folder by using the arrow keys to select Add
New Folder and enter a folder path.
24
Appendix A—Using the scanner and fax
Scanning to e-mail
Press the Scan to button and then use the arrow keys to select Add New E-mail. This launches HP
toolbox where you can add up to 20 e-mail recipients or folders.
Configuring the Scan to button
To simplify scanning from the device, you can program the Scan to button to include folders where
you archive documents or e-mail recipients to whom you frequently send scanned documents.
Use HP toolbox to configure the Scan to button settings. Open HP toolbox in one of the following
ways:
•
On the desktop, double-click the HP toolbox icon.
•
Double-click the Status Client icon that is located in the system tray, which is at the far right of

as shown in Figure 3 below.
Figure 3. Scan to E-mail or a Folder Setup in HP toolbox
Appendix A—Using the scanner and fax
25
Scan from TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant software
The device and its scanning software is TWAIN-compliant and WIA-compliant and works with
Windows-based and Macintosh-based programs that support TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant
scanning devices.
Scanning from a TWAIN-enabled program
Generally, a software program is TWAIN-enabled if it has a command such as Acquire, File
Acquire, Scan, Import New Object, Insert from, or Scanner. If you are unsure whether the program
is compliant or you do not know what the command is called, see the software program Help or
documentation.
When scanning from a TWAIN-enabled program, the HP LaserJet Scan software might start
automatically. If the HP LaserJet Scan software starts, you can make changes while you are
previewing the image. If the program does not start automatically, the image goes to the TWAINenabled program immediately.
To scan from a TWAIN-enabled program, start the scan from within the TWAIN-enabled program.
See the software program Help or documentation for information about the commands and steps to
use.
Scanning from a WIA-enabled program (Windows XP only)
WIA is another way to scan an image directly into a software program, such as Microsoft Word.
WIA uses Microsoft software to scan, instead of HP LaserJet Scan software. Generally, a software
program is WIA-enabled if it has a command such as Picture/From Scanner or Camera in the Insert
or File menu. If you are unsure whether the program is WIA-enabled, see the software program
Help or documentation.
To scan from a WIA-enabled program, use one of the methods described below:
26
•
Start the scan from within the WIA-enabled program. See the software program Help or
documentation for information about the commands and steps to use.
•
In the Cameras and Scanner folder, double-click the device icon. This opens the standard WIAenabled software program, which lets you scan to a file.
