For users with a tight budget and basic printing needs, the HP Deskjet 680C is a viable option. With the capacity to yield a maximum of only 1,000 pages per month, this inkjet unit will probably not appeal to businesses. However, for home users that simply need a printer for everyday tasks, there is no reason the 680C wouldn't suffice.
Upon purchase, HP provides buyers with guides and helpful software, as well as starter HP 680C ink cartridges. It is equipped with a moderately fast processor and 512 KB of RAM. There is a 50 sheet output tray and a simple design with only 2 buttons on the front panel. The simple navigation is one of the features that attracts home users.
With the capabilities to print on various types of paper, including envelopes, cards and transparencies, it also features banner printing. When this device was first released, banner printing was rare for an inkjet printer. It is also compatible with most major operating systems, such as Windows and Mac.
The drop-on-demand technology consists of hundreds of nozzles that dispense the HP 680C ink over every drop of paper. The black printer ink can yield a resolution of 600 dpi. The color Deskjet 680C ink can only reach 300 dpi. The HP Colorsmart system ensures the images will be as true to the original as possible for this outdated machine.
There are 2 standard Deskjet 680C ink cartridges, one with black printer ink and one with yellow, cyan and magenta. There is also an optional tank of special photo HP 680C ink. All of these are easy to install and find replacements for. The 680C is a basic color printer that could fit nicely in a home with low-volume printing needs.
