The HP OfficeJet 6100 color inkjet printer (also labeled as the 6100e) has a focus on wired and wireless enabled printing, especially from mobile devices. It supports Apple's AirPlay technology to allow printing directly from iPhones, iPads, and other devices, as well as other smartphones and tablets. ISO-rated print speeds are up to 16 pages per minute for black and 9 pages per minute for color. Printer ink costs are reduced by the affordable price of HP 6100 ink.
Not only does the 6100 come with both wired and wireless connectivity built right in, but it is very easy to integrate into an existing network. The setup routine handles most of the configuration for the user, and the support materials help users get their mobile devices connected and ready for printing. Print quality is very good, with the quality one would expect from an HP device. Energy-saving features can reduce use up to 40% when compared to comparable laser machines.
The quality of the printer ink makes a difference in the quality of an inkjet model's output, and the quality of HP 6100 ink cartridges is very high. There are four OfficeJet 6100 ink colors in the system, and the OfficeJet 6100 ink cartridges have capacities of over 330 pages each, keeping the cost per page low. High-capacity versions of HP 6100 ink are available as well.
PC Magazine gave the 6100 their Editor's Choice award in its category, and praised it for a great feature set and wireless support. They disliked the lack of a manual feed tray, but overall found it to be a good value for the price.
The HP 6100 has a wider array of features than one would expect for the price, and its support for mobile printing technologies will be a real draw for some buyers.
