The DeskJet product line was introduced by Hewlett-Packard to cater to the printing demands of various industries ranging from small, domestic, up to large industrial establishments. The HP Deskjet 5700 Series is capable of supporting True Type fonts that are used under the Microsoft Windows Operating System environment. It was founded on the thermal inkjet technology developed by Hewlett-Packard and implemented in its different printer device products. The device driver of the HP Deskjet 5700 Series printer also allows it to accomplish printing jobs at a very brisk pace, without necessarily sacrificing the quality of the output text or image. Another factor that contributes to the speed of data transfer is its use of the USB interface port which is considered faster, compared to either a Parallel or Serial interface. These features can be tapped by installing the device driver.

The HP Deskjet 5700 Series printer is also capable of delivering borderless printing, allowing for the usage of the entire printing media surface. This technology is extremely useful when dealing with brochures or photographs and other similar outputs. The device driver of the HP Deskjet 5700 Series allows it to distinguish among the different types of ink cartridges that are installed in the machine. The printer gains the functionality of identifying when a photo print ink cartridge is installed in the machine. Photo print cartridges are specifically developed to create better image outputs for photographs. The driver likewise monitors the ink levels of the cartridges. It informs the user when a specific ink cartridge is low or already empty. It then compensates for this by allowing printing operations to continue with only one cartridge. This is known as the Ink-backup mode. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HP Deskjet 5700 Series errors before installing any driver updates.
