Modern printers can be so expensive, which is one reason users might be interested in the HP Deskjet 690. With average speeds and resolutions, this inkjet unit will not provide efficiency in a fast-paced work environment. But if the consumers are in the market for something simple and reliable, the 690 will suffice.
Featuring only 2 HP 690 ink cartridges, the print resolutions are not that impressive. Yielding only 600 dpi for black printer ink and 300 dpi for color, this unit leaves much to be desired. However, the optional photo Deskjet 690 ink cartridge is available for more vivid and realistic image printing.
Nozzles attached to the printheads eject the HP 690 ink in tiny dots per inch of paper. They layer and form solid color tones which add realism and vibrancy to images. The nozzle technology is a trademark of inkjet printers, though more recent models have many more nozzles and higher resolutions. Of course, the more nozzles, the more drops of ink and the better the final result.
At the maximum, this device can print 5 pages per minute using black HP 690 ink and less than 2 using the tricolor printer ink. The HP Colorsmart software enhances images to ensure results that are true to originals. Also, the Deskjet 690 ink can adhere to various types of paper, such as envelopes and transparencies, making it semi-versatile.
Weighing only 11 pounds, the 690 is easy to move and install. It is compact and simple, having only 2 buttons on the front panel for basic navigation. The HP Deskjet 690 is durable and average, but tends to appeal to normal people with average printing demands, such as directions or concert tickets. Businesses may need more, but home users will find what they are looking for in the HP 690.
