Officejet 4500 in Citrix environment

I am looking into getting a low cost Officejet 4500 printer from Newegg.
However it will be used in a Citrix environment.

I checked the Citrix HP printer compatibility list (here: http://support.citrix.com/servlet/KbServlet/download/10498-102-647377/Citrix%20Supported%20HP%20Printers.pdf) and it doesn't list the "Officejet 4500" but it does list HP Officejet J4500.

Does anyone know if it should still work ok for printing simple Office documents, or has anyone used this printer before and are there any other recommendations?

I would try it with the universal print driver within windows 2008.  We've been able to get many printers working that would couldn't with previous versions of citrix.

You should be fine. Both printers used the same initial drivers for the 4500 and the j4500 which is version 10.1.1.3 dated 8/8/2008. Subsequent updates even in 2010 should still be relatively the same.

Plus, don't quote me on this, but I don't think Citrix test every single printer, just series of printers or specific printers that may have had known issues in the past. Once again, just my $.02.

When in doubt, always use the UPD as a fallback
