Data Sheet for the HP OfficeJet Pro K5400dn color inkjet printer

In the ongoing saga reported here of the Staples exclusive printer from HP (NYSE HPQ), here's the datasheet from the Staples web site in PDF format. Word to the wise: beware the fine print! Actually in this case the fine print may actually mislead a potential buyer in THE WRONG DIRECTION about what's included and not included for the $199.98 price. In fact, while one of the footnotes (#2) states that the high capacity color print cartridges (HP 88 XL) are NOT INCLUDED don't assume you're left in a lurch. The base product of the HP OJ Pro K5400dn color inkjet printer DOES INCLUDE the lower capacity color cartridges (see Data Sheet's page two), still with plenty of ink to get you going. (The footnote is there to support the cost-per-page comparisons to laser printers.)
