Guinness World Records - Officially Amazing

Business Show visitors break records with HP at London ExCel centre


PC manufacturer HP's Officejet Pro X 576dw printer recently scored a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD title for fastest time to print 500 sheets by a colour desktop printer.

The 576dw was confirmed as operating at a record-breaking speed after printing 500 sheets in a benchmark-setting time of 7 minutes and 19.25 seconds during a test in Vancouver, Washington.

HP adjudicator

To celebrate the achievement, earlier this month HP offered members of the public the chance to set a record of their own during the Business Show expo at the ExCel exhibition centre in London.

As well as being able to check out HP's latest printing products, visitors to the booth were given a chance to attempt potentially record-setting challenges with an official Guinness World Records adjudicator on hand throughout the day.

The record challenges that took place on HP's stand during the two-day event were themed around some of the key features of the company's printer products, such as speed, and energy efficiency.
