Home and small office users who want flexibility and creativity in their color inkjet printer will like the HP DeskWriter 680. It has a suite of software for creative projects, and it even supports flexible printing options such as banner printing that are often lacking in home models. Inexpensive HP 680 ink keeps printer ink costs low for the life of the machine.
The DeskWriter 680 has a large 100-sheet paper capacity that will appeal to busy users, as it means less time spent replenishing paper. It supports a maximum paper size of 8.5x14 inches but also has support for banner printing with its manual slot located at the back of the machine. Many types of media are supported, including transparencies, glossy paper, labels and envelopes among others.
The design of the machine is fairly compact, making it a great fit for tight office spaces. Its dimensions are 7.9 inches by 17.2 inches by 15.9 inches, and it weighs only 11.7 pounds, making it easy to put in place and even to move around if necessary.
Print speeds are a little slow, at only 5 pages per minute for black and 1.5 pages per minute for color prints. Color prints are limited to 300 dpi, while black prints support a 600 dpi resolution for more clarity.
Printer ink costs are lower than average for an inkjet model. HP 680 ink cartridges are very affordably-priced, and the large capacity of DeskWriter 680 ink cartridges ensures that users need not replace them often. All of this adds up to give DeskWriter 680 ink a low cost per page for the user.
If buyers can handle the slower speeds and limited resolution of the HP 680, its creative options and banner printing function are excellent features that make it a good value for the price. Low-cost HP 680 ink also makes it an economical choice.
