As a solid color inkjet printer, the HP DeskWriter 682 is an impressive device at a very affordable price. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of more advanced models, but it offers a few extra like banner printing that might appeal to some buyers. Printer ink costs are low, thanks to affordable HP 682 ink.
Back in the days of dot matrix printers, making banners for parties and other events was a fun practice. The 682 brings this fun back with its excellent banner printing feature, which is very uncommon for modern inkjet models. Many other media types are supported as well, including labels, transparencies, envelopes, glossy paper and post cards, among others. Input paper capacity is up to 100 sheets, which is great for busy home users.
For buyers with limited space, the compact design of the 682 will be a welcome feature. It measures 7.8 inches by 17.2 inches by 15.9 inches and weighs only 11.7 pounds, making it one of the lightest in its class. The unit connects via parallel port and has 512 KB of installed RAM.
Slow print speeds are one of the device's few drawbacks, at up to 5 pages per minute for black and 1.5 pages per minute for color. The printer's 600 dpi printing resolution makes for excellent print quality.
Printer ink costs are very low, as HP 682 ink cartridges are very affordably-priced. With up to 720 pages of capacity for DeskWriter 682 ink cartridges, they offer a very low cost per page as well. Third-party compatible DeskWriter 682 ink is a great way to save money.
Home and small office users alike will appreciate the compact design and low price of the HP 682. The inclusion of banner printing is a unique feature, and the low cost of HP 682 ink makes it a very economical solution for the price.
