HP Office Paper
Advantages: High quality, affordable, defined results, great clarity in printing, bright white.
Disadvantages: Nothing to be negative about.
Most people these days have access to a computer and also probably a printer, too. Although it may not be the most interesting topic or product, here we have the HP Office Paper, which could surely come in handy for those with a printer. There is such a wide variety of printer paper around and it can often be very difficult in deciding which one to choose. Price is more than likely going to be the key factor for most people - just look for the cheapest. Personally I go for a branded product made by a company I am familiar with and trust. If a big brand is happy to put their name on it then it is unlikely to be of poor quality.
The packaging of the HP Office Paper is a very simple envelope of paper which is wrapped around the sheets. The HP logo is clear to say, although not too large. The blue and white colours compliment each other well and allow the text to be read easily, the packaging also stands out well against the other branded paper.
The HP Office Paper costs around the £3 mark and is widely available both online and from your local stationers. For your £3 you get 500 sheets, that is less than a penny a sheet by my calculations. Packs of paper usually come in bundles of 500 sheets as (according to the trusted source Wikipedia) this is a 'ream' of paper. These sheets are A4 sized, which is the standard size when it comes to office/printer paper. I am no expert on paper, but with a weight of 80g/m2 you are getting an 'industry standard' thickness, meaning that it is just the right thickness to prevent printer ink seeping right through the sheets. You can get thicker paper if you so wish, but this is likely to cost more and I use this thickness to reduce the likelihood of printer jams.
It is really quite difficult to comment on appearance etc. but I suppose I will give it a go! Obviously the paper is a plain white colour and of an A4 size. The paper is high quality as it has that quality feel to it and is clear white and not an off-white colour. This is a major plus for me, as there is nothing worse than 'white' paper that isn't a clear and bright colour. Printing onto the paper really gives a clear indication as to the true quality of this paper. Inkjet printers give a thorough test, as they apply ink to the paper in a 'jet'. If the paper is of a low grade they you are likely to end up with a mish mash of colours and no true definition and clarity. With the HP Office Paper I find that completed documents are very neat and crisp. Text documents are always perfect, but I do also find colour graphs and images to also be to a high standard - something which you wouldn't get with a lower grade of paper. If you are printing images then I advise you look towards photo quality paper, but the images are still of a decent quality, just lacking the shine of photo quality paper.
Overall I am more than mildly impressed with the HP Office Paper. With a pricetag of £3 it really is worth considering. Instead of hunting out the cheapest priced 'ream' you can find, spend a little extra and never compromise on quality again. Afterall, what is the point in having a decent printer if you don't use decent paper?
Summary: This product proves it is worth spending a little extra to improve results.
