Home office users have a limited budget, but often still have the same faxing, scanning, copying, and printing needs as a larger business. The HP OfficeJet 6205 all-in-one inkjet printer can bridge the gap, as an affordable model with a lot of functionality. It can print up to 23 pages per minute in black and 18 pages per minute in color, it uses affordable OfficeJet 6205 printer ink, but it doesn't have some of the extras like networking that some buyers might prefer.
The fax feature operates in standalone mode, without a computer, as does the copy function. Faxing transmission speed is 33.6 Kbps, which translates to around 3 seconds per page. As faxing is increasingly replaced by digital documents, however, the scanning feature becomes even more important, and also conserves HP 6205 printer ink.
The 6205 can scan at a resolution up to 1200x2400 dpi optical for very clear results, and it can send documents directly to an email address. With both a flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder, users can scan, copy, or fax anything from a stack of papers to a large book. While the unit only comes with a USB port for connection to a single computer, an optional external print server can be added for shared printing.
The affordability trend continues right into the HP 6205 ink cartridges. While the OEM versions of HP 6205 ink are a little on the expensive side, users will get a lot of pages out of them, so the cost per page goes down. Third-party sellers also offer remanufactured OfficeJet 6205 ink cartridges at a fraction of the OEM cost.
The OfficeJet 6205 is a great start as an office-centric inkjet with a good set of features. Some small office buyers who need networking might do better to spend a little more and have the feature included from the get-go, however.
