High performance for business
Based on HP internal testings, HP BIJ 2800 prints at comparable speed to Canon BIJ 2300 on simple color and black text. HP shows better PQ than Canon BIJ 2300 with better skin tone and sharper image while Canon's printout seems to have lost some of the fine details.
HP BIJ 2800 HP's PQ shows more gradual skin tone and sharper image
More robust for shared use
HPs high capacity individual ink HP has a high duty cycle which is not specified in Canons unit. Unlike Canon, HP supports automatic duplexing which is not available in Canons unit.
Canon BIJ 2300 Canon's PQ has lost some of the fine details
For networkability, HP supports PDL, PS3, printer management software for Webjet Admin and Embedded Web Server while Canons printer language is GARO, which is host based. Besides Windows and MAC, HP BIJ 2800 supports UNIX and LINUX which is not supported by Canons unit.
